I was absolutely spoilt for choice. It got even harder to choose when I discovered they also made boots! These were a little bit more money, at £40, but I figured they would be really useful if they folded up, because I could take them on a typical British 'summer' holiday, when the weather can do pretty much anything it likes, and they would fit neatly in my luggage! So I went with the boots. A lovely deep crimson colour. In a classic slouchy style.
I wasn't expecting great things from the postman, with such a low delivery price and a huge discount, so I was very surprised when a tiny package arrived just a few days later. I am not exaggerating here, it was properly tiny! Don't believe me? Check out this picture I took next to my phone to give you an idea of scale. (and please take a moment to be impressed that I think of my readers, even when I'm opening the mail!)
They've sent the wrong product I thought. You couldn't fit a pair of boots in there! You could barely fit one boot in there! When I opened the box, things got stranger still. Inside were too pretty little bags, each far too small to contain boots. Have a look at the picture below and see for yourself! However, unzipping one of the little bundles, all was revealed. The bag was, in fact, the boot! It opened out into a boot, the back zipped up and the lovely pattern became the lining. Which I think is awesome and I played with them for ages!
