Quick tip: Boots too big and heels too high?
I scored these Lara-Croftian (named by former colleagues) "combat" boots in a H&M blowout sale in Denmark 4 years or so ago, but have hardly ever worn them because they just haven't been that comfortable. But I mean come on, leather, DKK150 (GBP15 then), cute, how do you say no?
The heels and the fact that my feet were rattling around in there made them less than great for regular wear and while I have actually tried doubling up my insoles before, it seems I wasn't trying the right ones.
To heck with Scholl, the best damned insoles you'll ever find are sold by Watsons and they even come two to a pack. You have to trim them down, but that lets you customise for each shoe and they are the thickest bounciest nicest insoles you'll ever find. Stock up when they go on sale, you won't regret it!
Boots: H&M Denmark (DKK150 / GBP15)
Insoles: Watsons (HKD16.90 for two pairs, on sale)
