Stay Cool with Hotter Shoes

Hotter by name but these shoes are designed for comfort and being beautifully light weight, they can be worn with or without socks – not something I would suggest for most leather shoes.

The brand is well known for its ‘comfort concept’ which involves cushioning in the lightweight sole. With padded ankle support and smooth internal seams, the lightweight sole, deep toe box and soft leather uppers help you to stay on your feet comfortably all day.

‘Tone’ has a low ankle and heel shape so that it doesn’t rub the ankle bone or achilles tendon. It is not only a good urban or good track walking shoe (I wouldn’t risk it on the West Highland Way or boggy tracks, where the low cut would let in water) but is light enough to use as an exercise shoe in a tai chi (or similar) class. Comfortable with bare feet (though perhaps not all day in warm, sticky weather,) the laces allow thin or thick socks to be worn without the arch being cramped.

Hotter shoes are made in England so if buying British is important to you, this is yet another plus.

Hotter currently have a special online price of £27 instead of £55 for these shoes but hurry as your size may sell out.

Suse Coon started life training to be an architect but ended up as a fashion buyer then civil servant. After some time out to bring up her family of three, she returned to what had been a hobby and entered the field of freelance journalism. After becoming regional correspondent, then editor of the orienteering magazine CompassSport, she formed Pages Editorial & Publishing Services. In this guise, West Lothian Life was launched, while Suse maintained a level of freelancing and wrote the award winning children's novel Richard's Castle. In 1999, Suse bought over CompassSport and found her time taken up pretty well exclusively with the two magazines. In 2004, West Lothian Life was expanded to form Lothian Life, however, the workload was too great. In 2006, CompassSport was sold and Suse concentrated on the web version of Lothian Life. Her hobbies include gardening, orienteering, sea kayaking and Tai Chi.

  1. Dear Suse Coon,

    There are no Hotter shoe stores in Scotland, but there must be Edinburgh shoe stores that stock them. Can’t find them on the Internet, though! Can you help?
