Summer Soles* | Just Add Ginger

If you know me, then you instantly recognise that ankle boots have pretty much become my shoe trademark over the past year. As I got a little older, and consecutive nights out at the student union faded into the distance, I began to realise that the five inch heels I used to totter around in would have to go in to retirement, and instead, it was time to opt for a more "sensible" yet chic shoe option.

As a lady with self-confessed "massive trotters", comfort is always key when it comes to footwear. So many times I have been drawn to a shoe because of the way it looks, but, as soon as I've taken them home, I've come to realise that it is just too narrow for my poor tootsies, and that I would just never build up the resistance to be able to take them out.

Sole Diva Boots

So when JD Williams got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out a pair of boots over the summer, I instantly jumped at the chance. It doesn't matter what time of year it is....I love me some ankle boots, and I really do believe that having a classic pair in your collection will instantly shake up your style and ensure that you always look put together, even on your off-duty days.

For the sunnier season (if we really indeed have those in England) I like to keep my style simple and elegant, and use ankle boots as an accessory to accent colours used in the rest of my outfit. This summer, I have practically been living in dresses or black skinny jeans. And this is where this pair of Sole Diva boots have played their part so well. In a classic black, with mid block heel, contrast sole and back panel featuring playful texture, they've really added extra depth to my clothing choices. Perfect for day or nighttime wear, I've practically lived in these over the past few months.

For the day, I keep hemlines mini or just below the knee. A fan of both body-con and A-line silhouettes, the cut of my dresses has showed off a bit of skin without going too OTT for my personal comfort levels. Some may think that a pair of ankle boots worn with a shorter skirt may cut you off at the wrong place in the leg, but I really like the slightly edgier feel. And the soft fabric choice really helps soften the overall effect.

But its never just about appearance is it? Comfort is ultimately key, and one of the reasons I've waited so long to upload this post is because I've wanted to make sure I fully tested the comfort factor of these boots to the max. After a full few months taking them for a spin, it's pretty evident that these are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. It's a big claim, but from the super-cushiony sole to the height of the heel, you can put these boots on first thing in the morning and still feel just as supported by the evening. They have been a joy to wear, and my love for them is pretty evident in that the lining inside one of the boots has already worn away!

I never really ventured on to the JD Williams website before these boots, but now I definitely would see them as a serious contender for filling my winter shoe wardrobe. With a range of brands, sizes and widths that cater for us ladies with the less narrow foot, their selection has something for everyone.

* I was very kindly sent these boots by JD Williams for review on JAG. This is no way affects my opinions. They are always 100% honest and informed by my personal experiences.
