Taking A Look At Cloggs & WIWT

A girl can never have enough shoes right?!  I don't know about you but even when there's literally no more room in my wardrobe I can always find space for a new pair.  After all they're game changers aren't they?  They have the ability to change an outfit from day to night from smart to casual & with so many styles, colours & options out there, there's always going to be room for one more.

So when Cloggs recently got in touch to see if I'd like to review a pair of shoes you can guess my answer ;-)

Now before their email I hadn't heard of Cloggs but they really are a company worth knowing about having had an online presence since 1998 & having won various awards over recent years including the Best Multichannel Retailer Drapers Digital Award last year.  Plus they stock some amazing brands including Ash, Converse, French Sole, Hudson, Sam Edelman, Steve Madden & UGG to name just a few.  Not to mention they offer free standard delivery & returns & pride themselves on providing 'zero-hassle' shopping.  Plus they have a really quick delivery time, with free next day delivery on orders over £80 that even delivers on a Sunday!  Well there's nothing worse than clicking the button & then having to wait an age for your new goodies to arrive by snail mail is there?

So before I share with you the shoes I chose to review, I wanted to share some of my top picks for SS16.  I think you'll agree there's some beauties, I could quite happily find a home for all of these.

So which shoes did I choose to review?!  Well as you can see from my picks above it was a hard decision to make but in the end I plumped for the Ash Virgin Nappa Wax hi tops.  A trainer I had long admired & having fallen in love with my Boden hi tops during the winter I thought these babies would make the perfect addition to my trainer collection.  After all if Victoria Beckham has declared trainers cool to wear I can't see the trend dying out any time soon.

So what do I think of my new trainers?  I have to admit I'm loving them.  They're really comfortable & I really like all the individual straps, which allows you to tighten/loosen the fit to suit your feet.  Size wise I'm generally a 40 but would say these come up a little big, which isn't a huge problem as I've added an inner sole to mine so the fit is now perfect  but if you're between sizes I would suggest you size down.    When I ordered mine they were quite limited on sizing so I was really lucky that my size was still in stock but if you click here, you can see the complete Ash range stocked including the above trainers in various different colours.

Having loved wearing them yesterday with my Zara faux leather biker trousers I'm going with a similar look today with just a couple of changes.

So ladies what are your thoughts on the Ash Virgin Nappa hi tops do you likey?!  I think these are going to prove a really useful addition to my wardrobe & are just perfect for dressing down leather leggings on casual days not to mention teaming with a pair of skinny jeans.

How about Cloggs, have you shopped with them in the past?  If not I can highly recommend, my trainers arrived within 2 days of ordering on standard delivery plus if you've seen anything to tempt you, sign up to their newsletter & you'll get 15% off your first order - happy days!

Happy Sunday & I'll see you in the morning.
