Barratts Shoes Review

Now that Lara seems to have settled well at school it is time to pick myself up and think about me again for a bit. And Barratts must be on the same wavelength because they asked me to take a look at some of their new arrivals to see if there was anything that would make the school run a little more glam.

Now, if you've met me recently you will know that glamourous isn't really where I'm at on a normal working day.  Practical yes, Glamourous.... well... the less said about that the better.  But that doesn't mean I can't do smart, does it?

I have a whole host of events planned in the coming months so when I browsed the range of women's shoes on I knew it would make sense to chose a pair of smart shoes that could see me through the winter.  These Natures Own Patent Toe Cap Court Shoes are like the little black dress of shoes!  Simple yet timeless and I can picture them working with Christmas party dresses just as well as they would with my work trousers.  They have a gentle heel which suits me well and the main fabric is a suede effect which contrasts well with the shiny patent toe cap.  At £28 I was really impressed with the quality of these shoes.

I also chose these very lady like wellies for the girls.  In our house wellies are almost always gungey green but these Butterfly Print Rubber Wellington Boots (£10) for little girls are traditionally shaped but with a fun butterfly design in dark pink and blue.  The wellies are available in children's sizes from 10 all the way upto junior/ladies size 5.

I was really surprised by the range of welly boots for children and adults alike on the Barratts website - even for adults there are around 50 different designs and styles.  Who knew wellies could be so much fun???  These wellies are certainly a long way off the quality levels of a pair of Hunters boots but then they are also a long way off the price tag! They aren't as rigid as I would hope for from a pair of wellies and the colouring around the point where the sole joins the boot is a bit messy but I still think they are good value for money.

You can find out more about the affordable range of shoes for all the family on the Barratts Facebook Page.
