2 Strap Sandal
As soon as I get these out of the cupboard I know that Summer is on its way and it makes me smile. My 2 Strap Sandal's have lasted me for years and the foot bed has lovingly nestled its way to hug the shape of my foot.So whether pounding concrete or grassy fields the 2 Straps have seen me through many a happy adventure.
Vegan Runner Hemp/Cork Black (2075)
My favourites are the Vegan Runner Hemp/Cork. I love the unique cork detailing, and the vegan hemp and fake suede provide a durable and comfortable upper especially combined with the padded collar and tongue. They are nice and light and have a nice grippy and cushioned sole which makes them great for a jog or for walking about town. But mainly, they just look great!
My favourites are the Approach Shoes. I got a pair when they were first in stock and have hardly taken them off since! Super comfy and lightweight, they have also held up surprisingly well in the rain. Great for walking both in town and on longer hikes, these are a brilliant all-round boot!
Hiking boots will last forever... if you save them only for 'serious' walks, but I love my Billing Boots too much to condemn them to such a fate! Beautifully constructed from materials carefully selected for comfort, they take little breaking in and reward your every step with a gentle forward push. Forget SUVs - these are the off-roaders to be seen in in town.
I love the Aubrey boots in all the available colours (black, brown and tan) – but tan is my favourite! They go with everything, and they can be smart or casual with the right outfit. The padded tongue makes them extra comfortable for everyday wear, and they look great on both men and women.
My current favourite boot is the Snowdon Boot. It’s just so versatile and goes anywhere and with everything.
Closely followed by the Vintage Bucky Brown Kalahari shoe. I must have had a half dozen pairs over the years. They get worn to destruction and then some more. Great for quick and easy comfort.
Airseal Chelsea Boot
Comfort and simplicity are watch words for me. I ditched lace ups after my first baby was born (lacing boots whilst baby wearing is tricky!) and got my first pair of Airseal Chelsea Boots. Worn with a pair of insoles, these are easy on and super comfy! My go to boot for colder weather, allotmenting and yomping on the downs. Come summer, I love our Toe Post sandals. They take a pounding (and every so often a soaking), but easily last the summer though… (I’ve had a new pair each summer for ooh – the last 5 years?!). Last year I was in Sandals until November. That’s a personal best.
I’ve been wearing my Green Vegan Runners since they were launched last year, mainly at the gym, I give them a reasonably hard time but they don’t seem to be showing any signs of wear yet, and really really comfortable.
And my lovely Kalahari blacks are still going strong after 7+ years of abuse!.
The Vegetarian Shoes I wear most are the Vintage Boots (Black). They are a good all round boot for Brighton’s variable, mild to chilly Spring and Autumn weather. The styling of the boot works well either polished and smart, or worn and weathered. I lace them up half way, as I like a looser fit around the ankles and calves, and which, incidentally, saves time getting them on and off.
Bush Boot Slim
I love my Bush Boot Slims . Made of Vegetan Fake Suede, they are comfortable, stylish and look great with whatever I’m wearing. And if like me you are always in a rush, they are dead simple to put on and take off. Lastly, they took almost no time at all to break in and felt like mine after just a few hours on my feet. I’d get them again in a heartbeat.
