Taking My #DuoBootTribe Boots for a stroll in Leith

A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited along with some other local bloggers to Duo Boots for a little fizz and a little squizz of their beautiful autumn winter collection. For anyone not familiar with the brand, Duo Boots specialise in high quality, made-to-measure boots, with up to 21 different calf sizes and 3 width fittings – bringing some tailormade luxe and super-attentive customer service to the high street, not to mention some very welcome relief to the often not-very-fun exercise of boot shopping (anyone ever suffered the floor-swallow-me-now embarassment of bursting a boot zip in a shop?)

The lovely Duo team generously gifted us each a pair of boots, and after much umming and ahhing over several gorgeous designs, I settled on the truly luscious tan suede Sanna, officially making me part of the Duo’s ankle boot “boot tribe” (#duoboottribe). I’m currently a little obsessed with the idea of a capsule wardrobe (having decided I’m maybe a little old to be exclusively wearing sequins and squirrel print dresses) and these were the perfect wear-with-anything classic.

I took my Sannas for a wee whirl down in Leith last weekend and they get my wholehearted tick of approval – both stylish, warm and fabulously comfy for trotting over the cobbles. If you’re looking to invest in a pair of top-notch boots I couldn’t recommend Duo more highly so make sure you (or Santa) head over to pick your own boot tribe soon.
