Time for winter work boots

I know it's hard to think of Autumn coming with the gorgeous sunshine we've had this week but the reality is that it's not far away and that means one thing, yes it will soon be time to pack away the work skirt and sandals and the trousers and boots will soon be making an appearance! I needed a new pair of boots so while I've been off work this week I was pleased to receive an email on Wednesday from Freemans offering me 20% off fashion and footwear, although it was slightly annoying because after I placed an order I had an email on Thursday offering me 30%! However 20% was a good saving so I went onto the web site and I ordered a Black pair of Chelsea ankle boots size 7 which cost £45 but with the discount has ended up costing me £36.00. I found the whole ordering process very simple to use and what I did like is the fact you can choose to have your item delivered to a local shop which I did, its a newsagents in the village which is less than 5 minutes away.  This service is convenient if you know that you won't be in when they try and deliver your item.  Freemans then send you an email to confirm that your order is on it's way and that email contains a simple to follow tracking process.  They tell you that you will receive a text message when your item has arrived at the shop and at 2.30pm today (Friday) I received the text message telling where to collect my item from and to make sure I take some form of ID with me.

First impression is very pleasing, it's nice to see the bag saying "Thank you for your order" and once opened you can in the picture below the contents, which include the boots, your despatch note, a parcel shop returns service information sheet and also a Free Royal Mail Returns information sheet, this is an added bonus that you can return the item if needed for free.

Regarding the boots themselves, the first thing I noticed is how light they are, also they are easy to pull on and very comfy to wear, I have quite a wide foot so sometimes boots can feel tight on me but these feel perfect.  When you are on your feet in work all day you need to be comfy.  I can even go as far to say I'm looking forward to work on Monday so I can wear my new boots! 


  1. Hi Jo,
    Thank you for such a great and honest review of our product and ordering/delivery service. Your blogs are lovely to read; we look forward to reading more in the future!
    (You'll also have to let us know how you get on with your new boots!)
    Best wishes,
    Rachel @ Freemans

  2. Some very good boots for winter days. I need 15 pair of boots for my coaching center. But I want same status for my boots. Because they are very much warm for the winter season.
