I love wearing heels, they make you feel more polished and feminine. However, a damaged back means that heels can be quite painful for me, so I seem to live in flats mainly for comfort.  I was invited to a Hotter shop recently to have a look at the styles and to meet the lovely PR team.  Baby and I had a great time at the shop in Winchester.  I was so surprised at how modern some of the styles were.  I must admit I had a preconception that Hotter was a shop catering to ladies of my mum’s age, not mine.  I was wrong; there were so many shoes and boots that I wanted to take home.

I chose these gorgeous plum Donna heels, which come in a luxurious suede.  Softly cushioned and naturally breathable, the Donna is a high cut slip on shoe with a really flexible sole.  The lining is a pretty floral fabric, which is very pretty. The front of the shoe has quite an open design, giving a little extra room for even more comfort.

It has a breathable leather insole with pyramid technology cushioning, with flexi grooves in the sole.  Hotter shoes all have Pyramind technology hidden deep inside the sole, this is a pyramid shaped foam pad which contracts and traps air as you walk, acting as a cushion to the balls of your feet.  They also have pillow soft underheel cushioning;  clever features like padded insoles, collars and tongues, make for a super comfortable experience.  For someone who has suffered from burning balls of my feel in heels, this was music to my ears.

I have size 9 feet and was so happy to discover that Hotter offer sizes 3 to 9 including half sizes and a range of width fittings from narrow to extra wide to ensure you find the perfect fit.

I adore the wintery tone of this plum, perfect for this time of year and the heel, while giving you a bit of extra height is quite chunky, but beautifully shaped.

These shoes are so versatile. I wore them with a dress and long cosy cardy, but the possibilities are endless. They would be great with a dress for the evening, or with jeans out shopping.

The best part? My feet didn’t hurt at all!  I will definitely be buying from Hotter again.
