How To Keep Your Feet Warm


It’s cold. It’s very very cold.

What’s a girl to do?! My feet are not enjoying  this winter and I need to wear something other than trainers on them occasionally…

Enter Canterbury Leather: a New Zealand-based company who have been handcrafting sheepskin boots since 1974. After hearing of my boot plight (it was front page news) they offered to send me a pair of their boots to trial and I gleefully accepted, picking a pair of their Robyns.

When they arrived about a week later I literally spent five minutes marvelling that these boots had come all the way from New Zealand. Isn’t the postal service fascinating? And then I marvelled at just how fricking comfortable and lovely they are. They’re completely different to UGGs: they feel much more solidly crafted  (the heel stiffner is heat shaped and set and you can tell), they’re beautifully warm because of the sheepskin lining and I love the way they look.


IMG_0830_2As you can see, my mum and I had a whale of a time photographing the boots on our impromptu garden photoshoot (sorry about the first-thing-in-the-morning face). I quote “if you decide you don’t like those boots, I’ll take them off your hands”. Sorry, mum. The photos are pretty good though so I’ll keep you.

    warm slippers are my weakest point! I order them from Austria, Italy, but NZ would be a first! (I’m such an old lady!)

    I have a pair of ugg style boots from another NZ sheepskin company which I got in 2009 and are still going well – that said, a new pair would be fantastic, so I’ve entered. :)

  5. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Also, the
    blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!
