These boots were made for walking…


Jill with Scruncher and her new boots As you know I am a shoe, boot and handbag fanatic (some might say a shopaholic) but when the shoes are looking very lonely and saying that they need a good home, I just can’t resist!

A shop assistant in the USA once said to me, ‘If you go away and you keep thinking about them then you have to buy them’. I thought to myself that sounds familiar!!

I love to coordinate my outfits too. Alison Young is always laughing at me as I have to pass her dressing room to get to mine! We have so much fun and as you can imagine I get the third degree…but this occasion was an exception…

Clarks October Tall Leather Buckle Strap Boot Recently we did a re-launch of Clarks shoes and boots with our guest Gill Roads who is adorable, and what she doesn’t know about comfort and style isn’t worth knowing. I fell in love with the Clarks October tall leather buckle strap boots.

I went into complete shopping mode on-air as they were a perfect match to the winter coat I had bought earlier this year. So my shoulda-woulda-coulda turned into a purchase as soon as I as I came off air.

I couldn’t wait for them to arrive. They are perfect. So comfortable, stylish and the leather is so soft.I have Christmas-shopped in them, taken Scruncher for many walks, had lunch with the girls, in fact they haven’t really left my feet  since they arrived.

I got so many questions from the QVC presenters on my boots and, yep, the grilling from Alison Young, who thought they were Ralph Lauren. I told her the designer was a little closer to home and left her looking on the QVC website!!!

    Hello Jill, I fell for these boots too and ordered them on waitlist. Unfortunately they have to go back as they are not for anyone with large calves. Mine stop doing up about half way up my leg! I adore them though and have put in a request via Customer Services that Clarks make a version with a wider (3 inches in my case) top to them. So please Gill Roads can Clarks make another version with a much wider top to them. I for one would be very grateful.
    Best wishes
