It is fair to say we did not have much of a summer this year so it is no surprise that autumn has crept into our lives without any radical changes. But there has been a shift — the days are growing shorter and in the last week or so temperatures have certainly dropped. With this change we will also see an adjustment in our wardrobe — the sandals and flip flops will be packed away for another year and we will all reach for our sturdy boots and cosy footwear.
Born Clothing in Newtownsmith has a dedicated footwear department with experienced and knowledgeable staff who can guide your feet in the right direction. For many, a pair of winter boots is an investment buy, one that is well thought through and researched. It is not a decision to be rushed. We all like to buy thinking we will get a few winters out of our purchase, so we want to make sure we are making the right choice.
Born stocks a wide range of KMB boots, a long established, reputable, brand whose motto is ‘Life is hard enough’. How true — with all of the daily obstacles we face we could at least be facing them in comfort. Knee-high styles (pictured ) come in a range of materials — suede, patent leather, and nubuck and are priced from €135. They also come in a shorter ankle length and feature a wedge heel.
However if it is something more casual and trendy you are looking for, then the ‘Spot On’ range would be perfect — buckled industrial boots in stone and black retail at €60 and the faux sheepskin-lined leather and suede look boots (heeled and flat ) start from €40.
Born Clothing is opening its fifth store in mid-September in the Galway Shopping Centre. See Facebook and Twitter for further details.
