Stepping out in ‘Air & Grace’

Strutting with Air & Grace

WHAT if I told you I’d found the comfiest boots in the world?

Would you believe me?

It’s a bold claim to make I know. And is of course, pretty darn impossible to prove.

However, if these Air & Grace boots aren’t the comfiest boots in the world, I’m in no doubt, that they will come up close.

My fabulous new boots from Air & Grace

I know quite a bit about shoes you see. In my twenties I was the Editor of Out On A Limb magazine – a specialist publication all about shoes! Besides from being a dream job, I also learnt a great deal about footwear and interviewed many a shoe designer, even meeting the legendary Manolo Blahnik himself.

And what I learnt is this:

Most shoes, which look good and have a heel, are not that comfortable. Of if they are, any comfort is relatively short lived.

Obvious? Well you’d think so but it’s amazing how so many of us buy into the idea that 4 inch heeled stilettos are a breeze to walk and run around in, all day. Carrie Bradshaw may have nailed it that is true, but let’s not forget that running around NYC in designer shoes is something that only fantasies are made of!

Which is why I always say that when it comes to high heels for nights out or glamorous shenanigans, you have to take the pain. Pretty heeled feet may be painful but they are well worth it. (And never forget, Vodka can and does help.)

However when it comes to running around during the day, getting s**t done, carrying your toddler, battling with your to do list, even I am the first to admit, comfort is EVERYTHING.

Yes I want a heel but I also don’t want to break my neck or hobble around the shops, as I wrestle with my two year old daughter on my hip.


Getting on with life in Air & Grace boots

Running about, looking after a toddler and working for myself requires decent footwear!

Air & Grace very kindly asked me to chose some footwear from their latest collection which made me a very kiddy gipper and I finally opted for the classic Coachella boot in black.

It was a very tough choice as I was incredibly tempted by the divine leopard print ones (which my lovely pal Vicki brilliantly shows off on her blog Mummys got Style) however I really wanted an ‘everyday’ boot that could take me places.

And guess what, these beautiful bad boys, most definitely do and have!  Since they arrived a few weeks ago, they’ve pretty much not left my feet.

Not sure where Elsie gets her poses from ;-)

A future style blogger in the making?!


These Air & Grace boots do exactly what I’d hoped. They look great, they go with pretty much everything in my wardrobe and they are supremely comfortable. I’ll repeat that, they are SUPREMELY comfortable!

They feel a bit like I’m wearing my slippers but are obviously much more stylish and appropriate for going out in public! Yes folks, I am a smitten kitten.

Claire Burrows – the designer behind Air & Grace knows her stuff and it clearly shows. With over 20 years experience in the footwear industry working with big names like Kurt Geiger, Claire has used her knowledge to create an exciting new footwear brand which fuses fashion with function.

Isn’t that good news ladies?!

Her collection is all about style and comfort and features her specially designed Tender Loving Air® technology, allowing busy women to get on with busy lives, in shoes that both look and feel great.

In life, I’m a firm believer that there are times for a tottering heel and there are times for a serious boot, but stepping out in Air & Grace is certainly a happy medium, that makes me well, very happy indeed!

So good in fact, that scrap the walking, I often feel like dancing…

Thank you Air & Grace for finally giving busy women exactly what they need. x


Dancing in Air & Grace

I love how Elsie never lets me dance alone.

Elsie loves Air & Grace too

Air & Grace boots, a hit even with the fussiest of toddlers. Just look at her face! *melts*



Also featuring an ASOS dress, my beloved denim trench, a pale pink cosy scarf (a gift from a friend), a vintage denim shirt and my metallic Lodis bag.

With love,

  • Ooh those boots look and sound wonderful! I’ve not heard of that brand before, I shall check them out. I have underpronating feet, which means I’m always on the hunt for shoes that are comfortable, good for my feet AND stylish! Gorgeous photos of you and Elsie, too xxx

    • Thanks Leigh! I can’t tell you how much I love them (Although I definitely tried with this glowing review). Have a gander at the site when you get the chance, there’s lots of info on there about their super duper technology etc. X

  • Gorgeous photos of you and little Elsie. I love those boots they look fab. I’m always on the hunt for comfortable, practical shoes for working in but obviously I still wanna look good too. Think I’ll have to check these out. X

  • OOF. They are divine. I used to love a heel but running about after two tiny man-cubs has put pay to that. To be honest it’s (almost) put me off them; when the twins are older, I’ll need to learn how to walk in heels again!

    In the meantime — those boots look delicious. Plus, as an avid festival go-er, it hasn’t escaped my notice that they are name after one!! ;) I bet they’d be lovely to wear, whilst dancing in a field.

    Gorgeous pics BTW xx

    • I can totally understand why any mum would never wear heels again but I urge you to have a rethink lovely Caro! Definitely check out Air & Grace boots, they are timeless classics in my opinion and the perfect heel size for day to day running about! X

  • Yup, they do look pretty darn comfy whilst striking that happy medium of a wearable heel. Nothing speaks quality footwear to me more than leather. I like leather. I did read Vicki’s post on the animal-print boots, and I was seriously lusting after a pair of them. I am a huge fan of bold boots. My comfy go-to day boots are my white (yes white) Dr Martens. Yes, I know I’m nearly 34 and I should know better, but whatever. You only live once! Speaking of which, I just had a butcher’s on Air & Grace’s website, and am a little in love with a pair of silver loafers!

    You’re definitely rocking those boots with the animal print and denim. Elsie was working the camera too! xx

    • Ah yes the silver loafers are incredible! Absolutely loved those too. Never tried Dr Martens (I know, I know where have I been?!) but hey you wear what you want lovely, at any age. I’m sure they’re fabulous.

      And yes Elsie was definitely working the camera! She insisted on being in every shot! Haha! X

  • EEK! Those cute matching outfits. As soon as I clicked on your home page and I saw the first piccy without know what the post was about I thought oh I ruddy like those boots – they are beaut! x

  • Um how lush are they!? I do love a nice ankle boot. Your whole outfit is really cute also major plus points for the matching mini me accessory, love it! X

  • You both look gorgeous as ever girlies (adore that Elsie loves the camera like her Mummy)-my boys are exactly the same-Alexander fights me for camera time (hehe)! Those boots are just so timeless and chic and love the boho-style heel (we need to actually go to Coachella girlfriend).

    Totally agree in how comfortable they are, truly is like walking on air! Air & Grace are going to explode this year for sure! Thanks for mentioning me too darling and for linking up, off to browse the Air and Grace site again-another pair would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift right?! x

  • You look stunning gorgeous lady and that leopard print dress is amazing – you’re rocking it Mrs! The Air and Grace boots look fab too and love that they’re so comfy. You’re right – as the Mum of a toddler too I know all about needing to be light on my feet! x

  • Your boots look awesome :-) …And being a mummy in the middle of it all, style bopping with your little one – beautiful!
    Thanks for linking up with #AllAboutYou.
    Love how you’re teaching your little one all about you too.
