These Boots Were Made…

…well, for me.

I’m sure that most posts about the Duo Boots event will include in there that this wasn’t really a brand I had heard too much about before, but it’s true, I hadn’t really looked at their offerings before. Honestly, I have no idea why I hadn’t looked, because I went to an event at the Bath store last month and wanted pretty much everything.

I was invited along to meet the shoes…I mean the brand…at a blogger event where happily, it seemed like half of the regular #blogclub babes were in attendance! Laura and I hopped on a train to Bath after work, and went with SJ for a pre-event drink in Milsom Place before heading to the Bath store. Duo is actually a local company, starting 40 years ago in Bath, and are┬ánow based in Frome. The Bath store fitting room means people can go and get measured correctly to get a perfect pair for them, and we were treated to the full experience.

We were all given a tag with our blog logos on, and when we found the boots of our dreams, we could pin our name on to join the boot tribes of ankle boots, knee highs and over knees. I was tempted by the Flore boots, but the Fader boots won me over with a chunky sole and classic style – I’ve been looking for a pair of knee highs for a while, but I’m so incredibly fussy that I could never find the right pair for me.

At the end of the evening, the boots were totted up and the ankle boots had it with 60% of the attendees choosing a pair. 33% of us went for the knee highs, and 7% braved the over knee style.

Thank you so much Duo! My new boots are perfect for the sudden cold spell and are excellent for stomping about in the fallen leaves!

    I love Duo, it’s just brilliant that they have so many styles in so many different calf measurements!! You picked a great pair, I wish I had a store like Duo over here
