Newsletter emails are dangerous stuff. They make me buy things even if I don't plan to. Like these Crocs AllCast Luxe Boots.
They caught my eye as soon as I spotted them. The sneaky sale newsletter led me to the Crocs website, which said 30% off. I found an (actually really working!!) coupon code for another 20% off and that's how they found their way home - to me.
Before ordering, I googled them for some real-life pictures to see if they look like on the website - I always do that :). Unsurprisingly, I found some pictures of the Stylish Housewife wearing them with an army green jacket, which was my original idea of how to wear them. Even though the jacket I imagined was a much more wintery one.
The real-life pictures, the sale price and free shipping persuaded me to get a hazelnut/stucco pair and oh boy am I glad I did. These shoes are comfortable, warm and stylish - as far as a shoe containing rubber can be :).
They promise a lot - waterproof to stitching lines, made of premium leather, sealed seams add water-resistance above stitching lines, gusseted tongue helps keep out slush, full sheepskin lining, built on a Crocs sneaker platform for wear-all-day comfort, Croslite™ material base for comfort and cushioning and rubber outsole pods for improved traction.
I wear them constantly from the day I got them. There is some snow lying here and there in my city, occasional rain showers freeze during cold nights and these boots are really suitable for every terrain.
And they look really good toooooo :).
