Recently I was invited to a blogging event run by Hotter Shoes. Hotter Shoes was set up in 1959 and originally designed and sold slippers.... until they had their 'Eureka' moment, they would design shoes with style and comfort combined. Their passion for the business, great customer care and quality footwear has seen their brand go from strength to strength, so I was excited when I visited their Cardiff branch recently.
I was welcomed by Mel the lovely PR lady and treated to some refreshments as we chatted about the brand. Before long we were joined by some of South Wales gorgeous bloggers such as Lorraine from Squeaky Baby blog, and Su from Soosie Wales.
Hotter Shoes unique selling point is their "Comfort Concept" - shoes that are lightweight in design with breathable leathers and liners, great flexibility and softly cushioned soles full of millions of air bubbles. Many of their shoes also have no internal seams which greatly adds to the 'slipper' effect.
Some facts about Hotter Shoes I didn't know
They are a family company.
They are the biggest shoe company in the UK.
They are authorised to use Gortex in their walking shoes and boots.
Their standard fit is a D to an E fitting but they even go up to an EEE.
They have a UK call centre for customer care.
They have a 100 % happy guarantee.
These are some of my top picks below, let me know what you think of the designs.
Hotter are keen to appeal to a younger market than they have previously and you can see this in some of their fashion led designs, like the floral plimsolls above. I can see these being worn by uni students or festival goers as well as trendy mums who love comfort.

These beautiful shoes would add a touch of class to a summer outfit worn at a wedding, a day at the races or a garden party. How gorgeous is the floral liner on the shoes to the left?
I would wear these fabulous wedges out for dinner, and I can see they would be popular for workwear, combining classic style with comfort.
