The cold weather has really set in now and I think this is my first proper "dressed for winter" outfit this season. Not only am I bundled up in my cape, hat and scarf, but I'm also wearing my ridiculously warm Canterbury Sheepskin boots that I was kindly gifted a few weeks ago - I've had time to road test them thoroughly and I can honestly say they're the warmest things that have ever graced my feet (and I suffer from really cold tootsies)!
New Zealand company Canterbury Sheepskin has an impressive collection of boots and slippers which are hand made from sheepskin of the finest quality, with dense wool and fine suede. Although I probably wouldn't wear them in the summer, sheepskin is warm in winter and cool in the summer due to its moisture absorbing qualities. I chose the Artica tall boot which has exposed sheepskin and a shaped low heel - truth be told I don't particularly like "Ugg" style boots but I think these are styled beautifully and I love them in tan. They are incredibly comfortable and as mentioned before, they keep my feet warm like you wouldn't believe. To be able to get away with just one pair of socks inside a pair of boots and still have toasty toes is a godsend!
All boot styles and slippers can be viewed on their website www.canterburysheepskin.co.uk or you can purchase products via the online shop http://shop.canterburyleather.com - however! as if it wasn't perfect timing with winter and Christmas too, Canterbury Sheepskin have allowed me to host a giveaway which will start tomorrow on the blog, so pop back then for your chance to keep your own toes warm this winter!
Are you a fan of "Ugg" style boots, and if not, have I persuaded you with the styling of these sheepskin beauties? Let me know :)
