I’m a shoe lover kinda gal.
If you want to get specific, I’m a boot fanatic.
I think the majority of my shoe collection, which has vastly grown in the last few years, consists mainly of boots. I have leather, suede, Uggs, Fuggs (fake Uggs LOL) black, brown–even pleather! Heels, moccasins, flip-flops, wedges and flats.
You name it, I probably have it.
(And NOPE, that’s not MY shoe collection. I have about half that and I only wish they were that organized!)
As you can imagine, it’s quite an investment after a while and sadly, I’ve lost a few of my favorite pairs of boots simply because they’ve been sitting in my walk-in closet, patiently waiting to be worn and have developed ugly creases from neatly sitting there flopped over to one side.
(By lost I mean I thought they looked too ugly to wear. *sadface* In risk of sounding completely narcissistic & in my defense, shoes are my only vice! 😉 )
Maybe they were sad because they hadn’t been worn in a while and they just slumped over in defeat, well, I want happy, gorgeous, immaculate boots!
These make mama happy.
So, when the thoughtful team from Booty Shapers offered to send me a solution to my little boot problem (nope, not the one where I STOP buying them, sorry Hubby), I jumped at it.
Now, I have a fairly inexpensive solution to keep my boots immaculate until they are ready to be worn again. Thus saving me a lot of money and helping me preserve my favorite boots.
How you ask?
My saviour goes by the name of Booty Shapers! I received a size small in Paisley Pennach which is great for ankle and calf-length boots and a size extra-large in African Safari (which was my favorite) that is ideal for all knee and thigh high boots. I have both of these sizes and I think my old friends could use a lift. All you have to do is simply blow them up and insert them into the boot and when not in use you just deflate them.
Lo and behold. They are standing erect and crease-free! I’ve left them for over a week and here they remain unscathed by the power of gravity. This makes me very happy.
I absolutely recommend this product to any boot enthusiast and aficionado like myself or even for a person who may own just a pair or two who want to keep them immaculate during the summer months when they are not in use. With Christmas around the corner, they make for excellent stocking stuffers and for the price of $9.99, you can’t really go wrong.
The functionality and practicality highly protect your boot investment. I’m going to order quite a few to keep my boots crease and wrinkle free. The only thing I can complain about is that I had a hard time blowing them up, maybe it’s just my lung capacity (or lack of pump) but, I borrowed the power of Hubby’s lungs to blow them up.
Other than that, they are double thumbs-up!
So where can you get them?
They are available worldwide and there are quite a few places that offer them. Here is a short list of where you can order them year round for under $10.
Have you ever used booty shapers?
Let me know, til then, cheers m’deres!
