At this time of the year we are thinking about getting outside more as the days become longer and hopefully the weather becomes better. After a winter inside sheltering from the rain it’s good to blow away the cobwebs and get out in the fresh, spring air. It’s a long way to the days of summer though, so practical footwear is a must, but it doesn’t need to be dull and boring. A little looking around the shops can unveil some very stylish boots and shoes. My husband needs some new boots this season so I’ve been looking around to see what is available and there’s quite a selection at MandM Direct.
I’m really loving the rugged, good looks of MandM Direct’s selection of Caterpillar boots with their chunky, reliable soles and their seam detailing, sometimes double, sometimes triple stitched. They are perfect for dealing with muddy paths, puddles and anything that the weather chooses to throw at them. They shout quality and they look stylish too. They are reasonably priced, but there are cheaper equivalents available if you aren’t fussed about having a brand name, like the good value Firetrap range. So it’s worth having a browse through to see what would suit you or your man.
Maybe you’d prefer to pick out something even more practical and go for one of the goretex boots on offer. These will keep your feet dry through the April showers and are prefect for those spring walks in the countryside. As well as being able to cope with bad weather and all terrains, they look good too, so you could easily wear them around town. They don’t have that too heavy or clompy look that you sometimes get with walking boots. Again there’s a mix of options available including top brands like Karrimor as well as less well known names.
