These boots were made for walking!


Jill and JulianI was very excited when I was asked to present a premiere show called Rieker on Thursday 18th October at 1pm.

Being the queen of shoes and boots I knew I wasn't going to resist.

I think it is so important to finish off an outfit, whether it be jeans or a smart suit, with a smart pair of shoes or boots. It's not about spending crazy money on that finishing touch but about being comfortable and being able to wear them without wanting to take them off after 10 minutes.

My boot and shoe wardrobe is my pride and joy so was I, the Imelda Marcos of QVC, going to add my Rieker boots to my collection. When I discovered Rieker used to make boots for the affluent citizens in Northern Italy you bet I decided to put them to the test. I worked my whole outfit around these gorgeous black leather smart ankle boots.

They were screaming to be walked in so off I went. I wore them all day doing my daily chores, drove to QVC in them for my late shift and bumped into Julian whilst I was in our prep area, and he always checks out my shoes… How impressed was he with my new cute ankle boots! I eventually took them off at 10pm and couldn't believe I had been wearing them all this time as I was so comfortable, and best of all the boots moved and moulded with my feet. Rieker brings you comfort whether you are sitting, standing or walking. They are so lightweight you don't even know you are wearing them. Plus, the shock absorbing works a treat as you don't even realise you have been on your feet all day – they are like a second skin!

Rieker is a family business of five generations and you can feel their passion in the comfort of the boot.

Will I be adding my black Rieker boots to my collection? Most definitely yes…

Please join me for our premier show on Thursday 18th October at 1pm. 

Lots of love,

Jill x

    Hi Jill
    Rieker Shoes are extremely well made and although I don’t actually own any, I did try some after my ankle/leg surgery 2 years ago, but because my right foot was swollen at the time I had to try a size up and they were too big for my other foot!!
    I did, however, manage to use an old pair of Skechers Biker style trainers (from QVC, of course) with the elastic laces and cut the trainer down the middle, underneath the laces and it worked brilliantly, I could get the right shoe on and the elastic laces kept it in place…my physio was very impressed!
    Hope you don’t mind me asking you about the Natura Vitalis range. I have been looking at their Woman-Active Menopause capsules (400 pack size) and was wondering if QVC had any plans to introduce them…the delivery cost from the website I viewed was £9.95 eeeekk!! Having hit that certain time in life I wondered if these capsules would be of benefit.
    Thanks Jill and again hope you don’t mind me asking as I know you are a real advocate of this brand and good luck with the Rieker show!

    Jill you gave my Mum aged 82 such a laugh the other day, She switched on to QVC ,as She loves the channel, and whilst the sound came on the new digital picture did nt for a while due to improvement works being done in our area, Me and my friend Sue were in the kitchen having a cuppa, when Mum came out with a rather shocked look on her face , saying “i think that Jill Franks has gone to the porn channel” Sure enough when we went into the tv room you were referring to ” a lovely Mickey” and ” its so nice when the Mickey stands out like that” ,,we too were stunned until the picture suddenly appeared and there you were modelling a really stylish Disney Mickey Mouse , thanks for such a light hearted moment , Mums still blushing about it, ,,love the shows,
