Fashion: Hotter Event...




If someone said that they could make a pair of shoes that are as comfortable as a pair of slippers, what would you think? Impossible you say. Admittedly, I thought that as well until recently when I attended an event at my local Hotter store.

Hotter are a Lancashire-based British brand who have been around since 1959. The ethos behind the brand is to make high quality shoes that are as comfortable as possible. Even from the start of the design process, the precision and detail that goes into making each shoe is second to none. When you purchase a pair, you are guaranteed that the shoes have been through rigorous testing before they even make it to the production line.




At the event, we were introduced to the brand which I actually found really interesting. I think what struck me most was that it is still very much a family-orientated brand and even though they ship worldwide (and have call centres open until 4am to cater for American customers), everything they produce comes from one factory based in Lancashire.






Once we had learnt a little bit about the brand, we were encouraged to try on as many styles as we liked so we could pick a pair to review. After a lot of deliberation, I eventually picked out the Abbeyville Leopards. However, you will have to stay tuned until next time to see how I got on with them!

Thank you to both the Hotter PR team and the wonderful staff at the Aberdeen store for an event to remember!
