Calves, glorious calves. How I love your firm, solid structure, the way you stand proud and the fact you’re so independent you hate being restricted to boots. But, ALAS, I’ve found some boots that WILL tame you. (Insert evil laugh here). Well after hearing about the Evans #24hrshoes campaign, I thought I’d see if they lived up to their claims. Well, let’s get straight to the point, these long slouch boots from Evans are brilliant for so many reasons. I have super wide calves and really struggle to find knee high boots. I’ve got 2 pairs that have seen me through the last 2 years and I really needed some more, there’s only so much mud that one pair of boots can take. These wide fitting boots are black leather with a size zip and have a stretchy back panel which isn’t hugely obvious. I was apprehensive BUT they zipped up NO PROBLEM! They were in fact so stretchy (because of the panel at the back) that I could actually tuck my jeggings in. Hooray!
Talking about this jeggings, they are some of the best I have had actually! They are specifically made for pear shapes. I’m supposed to be an hour glass shape but I have large thighs and hips. These jeggings have a seriously roomy waist band and while they aren’t super skinny on the leg, it makes them really comfy.
I was surprised at just how comfy the boots were. They literally were made for walking and I could walk in them for days if I needed too. You know when it’s an effort to take shoes off because they are THAT comfortable, well yes, these tick that box. What I like about the simple design of slouch boots is that they can be worn with anything for almost any occasion. This outfit for me can be for anything from a shopping trip with the girls to a dinner date with the boyfriend. The boots look pretty sharp and are a MUST HAVE for anyone. If you have large calves like me, then these boots are 100% for you. They are a real investment.
This outfit is one that I wore ALL day. I thought as I’m putting their shoes to the test I might as well put the Evans clothing to test as well! The burgundy crepe jacket is gorgeous and a perfect colour for autumn. I wish I had sized up as it’s a little snug but I love it. The ivory swing vest feels lovely against the skin. If you have a larger bust I would say to size up, if not then it will fit like a dream. Then there is the GORGEOUS oval stone statement necklace. The colours are so versatile and go with all the autumnal tones that are gracing wardrobes at the moment. As soon as I saw this I had to have it.
Wearing this outfit for almost 14 hours I have to say all the items past the test, but the boots were incredible. Really soft soles and lots of space for my toes meant I didn’t feel restricted at all. They didn’t rub because of the soft leather and like I said, these will be my staple boots for the winter.
Roll on the rain, snow and sludge. I’m ready for you with my comfy but trendy #24hrshoes. Well done Evans, you win!
