Omg, holy moly, these shoes are SO amazing!
So, hopefully you all had a happy Thanksgiving and are enjoying the cooler weather. I couldn’t help but cut right to the chase because I’m SO stinkin’ excited about these shoes!
I love shoes- I mean, REALLY. LOVE. SHOES. But, I’m also into comfort. As much as I love the way a pair of heels looks, I just cannot wear them for more than a few minutes before I’m putting my flip-flops back on. Even kitten heels become a chore to walk in after about 15 minutes. Also, it’s hard to find cute shoes that fit my size 10 feet!
If you haven’t heard of Hotter shoes, the brand is Britain’s biggest manufacturer of quality shoes, with a pair made every 20 seconds. When I saw that they make heels (“Donna”) with “pyramid technology,” padded inner lining, a cushioned insole, and a flexi grooved sole to maximize the cushioning, I became very curious. Could these shoes possibly be comfortable enough to wear for an entire event?
First off, Hotter does have a website for US orders, and shipping is VERY reasonable at just $10. Also, most orders arrive within 14 days- mine arrived in about 10! So, what if your shoes don’t fit? Hotter has a 100% Happy Guarantee. If you want to exchange your shoes, shipping is free, there was even a pre-paid label in my order, with a reusable shipping bag. If you want a refund, it’s only $7 to help defray costs. There’s also a toll-free phone number you can call if you need additional assistance.
The Donna heels I selected come in a variety of colors and materials, such as black leather, blue suede, black patent, black suede, and I chose plum suede. You can also order select shades of their various shoes in comfort fit or wide fit, which is really nice for those of us with larger feet. Can it possibly get any better than this…?!?!
When my shoes arrived, they were packaged very well. There was the shipping bag, with the shoe box inside, along with a return label, return paperwork, and a catalog. The shoes were very secure and protected, with each shoe individually wrapped in plastic. Each shoe also contained a plastic rod, cardboard pieces, and tissue to protect and maintain shape during shipping. I was VERY impressed with the care they took; it’s obvious the folks at Hotter want to make their customers happy!
When I took out the shoes, I swear, they literally took my breath away! The quality was outstanding; no wonder they’re Britain’s top shoe manufacturer. There is a floral lining, and cushioning inside the shoes, and the suede is beautiful. The design is unique and fun, yet sophisticated and classy at the same time. But, the real treat was when I slipped these Donnas onto my feet- they did NOT feel like heels.
Although the heels of the Hotter Donna shoes are higher than my Louboutin kitten heels, they don’t feel like it. They feel like sneakers in comparison (sorry, Mr. Louboutin!), even when I first put them on- it felt like they had already been “broken in.” As much as I love the plum color, I almost wish I got these in black, because I want to wear them with everything now. They were great with jeans, but I can also wear them with a dress or skirt.
The only negative is that there is no Hotter store on this side of “the pond.” So, I can’t just go pick up another pair, but with the quick shipping and hassle-free, no-questions-asked Happy Guarantee, it’s well worth it to place an order and wait the short time it takes for shipping.
Donna shoes not for you? No worries, they have plenty of other styles available- flats, sneakers, boots, everything to take you from dressy to casual, warm weather to cold weather. They even have men’s styles. At Hotter, there is definitely something for everyone.
It’s difficult to find shoes that are well made, functional, comfortable, and cute. Hotter is unique because their shoes are ALL of these things. Overall, if I had the budget, I would order every Hotter shoe they make. I would have far fewer foot problems and pain if I did so. They’re not only functional and comfortable, but they’re stylish.
If you want high-quality, well-made, comfy shoes that look just as great as they feel, you NEED to check out Hotter shoes at hotterusa.com. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed!
