Hotter are a UK company who still manufacture 80% of their shoes in the UK - surely unheard of these days that the manufacturing has not been shipped abroad wholescale for the cheaper labour costs? Don't be fooled into thinking that makes these shoes expensive though; I found them to be very good value for money considering the thought and materials which have gone into them.
Personally I hadn't heard of Hotter Shoes until they turned up in our town, but since posting pictures of the shoes, I've had plenty of comments from people my age who are big fans. The reason why? They are very well made, and extremely comfortable to wear. They use special technology in their soles so it feels as if you are walking on air bubbles. A couple of people have even admitted it feels like going out in your slippers!
It was explained that their business had been built on some classic styles, which are generally favoured by an older generation due to the comfort, but that they have now expanded and worked with designers to bring in a wider range suitable for all ages. They cover everything from sandals through to work shoes and sports shoes, and even some gorgeous wedges - but keep that all important #ComfortConcept for all of them.
I found a few styles to try on myself - my favourites were probably the ballet pump styles, which came in gorgeous aqua and pink colours, but there were lots of styles which I loved.
I eventually chose the Shake style (as below) in a lovely aqua, and did the school run in them the following day. SO comfortable, and I did get lovely compliments about them. Also couldn't resist doing the #shoesie - for those not in the know, that's a #selfie except it shows just your shoes!
