Shoetique Gabor Ankle Boots

It’s a common misconception that all fat people also have fat feet. I mean, that’s completely the case with me, but I know tonnes of plus size bloggers with the most dainty, beautiful feet ever. I just haven’t been blessed in that department at all. My 5’3 stumpy self has instead been cursed with the fattest, widest, and neediest feet ever. I can fit into a size 5, 6 or 7 depending on the wideness and design of the shoe, but mainly with everything being so narrow, I’m a 7. Recently I was contacted by Shoetique to try out a pair of their many shoes that they stock, and to be honest, I panicked.


I haven’t really reviewed shoes before for all those reasons listed above, awkward feet aren’t something I thought would make an amazing read. However, as soon as I saw the ‘Gabor Boots Vastra Black Nubuck‘ boots, I loved them. I don’t love their long winded name though, but I thought they were stylish and being £90, now £72, I thought they’d be a brilliant quality to put up with my wide feet and last through the Winter. Thankfully, I was partially right.


The stylish leather ankle boots are pure perfection and even have cushioned insoles for extra comfort, however, with being such utterly incredible quality (I normally opt for cheap and cheerful shoes) it does mean they’re a little tough to get my wide feet into them. They do indeed fit, but they will take some very long and painful shopping trips to pad out properly. For that reason, I thought it was best that I don’t feature them on my actual feet, as I didn’t think my bulging ankles would do them justice at all. With a comfortable heel of 1.5 inches and rubber soles so you don’t slip and slide everywhere, everything has been thought of with this pair of boots.
In my opinion, they’re the perfect Winter boots and as soon as my little fat feet look comfortable enough, you can bet your cotton socks you’ll be seeing a lot more of them. Shoetique also have an amazing sale on right now, so if you’re looking to invest in your feet this freezing cold Winter, then you know what to do.

    It’s pretty hard to find shoes that I like and look nice on my feet, but this ones seem to go well with everyone’s feet and style! Hope your feet feel comfortable to use them soon 🙂 xx
