PRODUCT REVIEW: New Look Biker Boots

When I saw these boots in New Look recently I knew I had to get them, not only did they look super cool and trendy they looked so comfortable and versatile. Over the last few months I spotted a lot of people wearing ankle biker boots and loved the way they dressed them up with floral dresses in Summer and leggings and long length knitted jumpers as the weather has gotten colder. I've always wanted a pair of my own, but couldn't seem to find anything that shouted 'buy me', that was of course until I spotted these. 

I love wearing these boots when I'm going for the grunge trend, with ripped jeans a checked shirt, leather vest and a crop top (just to add a feminine touch), the look is very TLC 1990s.

Being real leather the boots are somewhat a bargain at £59.99, but then New Look tend to offer an amazing range of footwear at very affordable prices, so I was not surprised when I saw the price. Most real leather biker boots cost much more, so I was happy that I found a pair I really like that wouldn't harm my purse.

I love the gold detail on the boots, the buckles and the zip, I didn't want biker boots with silver details, because I'm a lover of all things gold. To be honest a lot of the biker boots out there have gold detail, which makes a pleasant change from previous seasons. 

When trying the boots on I found that they came up quite big. I usually wear a four or five in boots, it depends on the style of the boot and where they are from. With New Look I find that their shoes come up a little big so I went for the size 4 (EUR 37) and they fit perfectly. They're definitely shoes I'd advise trying on in store prior to purchasing. 

Though the shoes are practically flat with a very low heel, they're a little narrow at the front. So if you have wide feet you may want to give these boots a miss. If you have narrow feet these boots are perfect for you and if you have normal width feet you may want to consider getting some shoes trees to stretch the front out a little before wearing them out and about. 

The leg of the boot is quite wide, so if you've got particularly slim legs there'll be quite a bit of space, which isn't a bad thing... that's the look of the boot. For ladies with bigger legs the boots will be a little tighter on you, though in my opinion I think it looks great like this. They definitely work for ladies of all sizes!

I would recommend these boots as they look great, are purse friendly and very on trend.
