These boots are made for walking

I have completely forgotten to properly introduce the latest addition to my shoe family: the Ann Demeulemeester riding boots. They are actually a second hand find from Berlin and ever since we met, we've been inseparable - that's how comfortable and well-made they are.

First I thought they wouldn't fit me right, being size 36 and all, but they are actually perfect (and still roomy) for my size 37 feet. So if you ever get boots (perhaps this applies to other shoes as well?) from Ann Dem, remember that the sizing runs at least one size big and to get your shoes in one size smaller than usual.

Whilst in Berlin, I also had the pleasure of trying on the famous Rick Owens wedges and noticed that those run one size big as well. Now I'm quite doubtful about shopping for shoes online, I guess you can never be sure if they fit true to size or not...

+2C?! I wish! Sadly we get colder than -31C, sometimes as cold as -50C between Dec and's ridiculous!

On a better note, your boots are AMAAAAAAZING. Love Ann D!

To walk comfortably and safely in moorland, hill & fell country, you need to protect your feet in purpose designed walking shoes or boots. In an ideal world, you would have different footwear to suit all the different terrains and conditions that you might encounter year round.
