As you all know, I love boots, I really love comfortable shearling lined boots, and I was completely blown away by Mou boots, which are kind of a luxurious alternative to Uggs and EMUs, when I was invited for afternoon tea with the brand’s founder, Shelley Tichborne before Christmas.
I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to expect from this boots brand, other than the fact that celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson are fans, which to be honest is good enough for me; but I was in love as soon as I put my foot into the sheepskin lined Eskimo suede boot.
Not only were they super comfortable, but for the first time ever I actually found sheepskin boots that came up to my knee, yep that’s right tall people Mou caters for all as the Eskimo style comes in 24cm, 40cm and 50cm heights. I also loved that the double-face sheepskin has gorgeous contrasting crochet wool seams and there are tons of colour combinations to choose from – I love the navy and metallic shades.
For autumn/winter, the collection is full of a lot of stand-out pieces including biker-inspired boots with brushed metal buckles, the divine knitted bandeau cuff knee-high style, and even cowboy style boots. What I love most about this brand other than the amazing styles, the gorgeous colours and how soft the lining is inside, has to be that the premium footwear brand ensures that all of its natural materials are ethically sourced.
