I have been lusting after a pair of Ash ankle boots for absolute ages, so when I stumbled across a pair of their Spiral boots on ebay, they had to be mine. I managed to snap them up at a fraction of the retail price as well. Happy days!
They are a size 8 and feel slightly too big (I am usually a 7), but they are seriously the most comfy boots I have ever owned. The leather is extremely soft and it feels like 'second skin'. The Spiral design comes with a side zip, making the boots easy to slip on and off.
I mentioned in my review of Ash Jess boots, that I can only wear Ash boots with a side zip. Yep... I actually bought the Spirit boots and Jalouse boots and had to return both pairs, because I couldn't even put my foot inside. I think it is the shape of my feet... My sisters have the same problem too, it's weird. I don't have fat or wide feet by the way. Wide fit shoes are always far too big for me. I have never experienced this problem before, because most boots have a stretchy bit around the ankle. Well, at least now I know not to buy Ash boots without a zip :)
Despite my issues with various designs not fitting, I can't recommend the Spiral boots enough. I live in them, wear them with everything and everywhere. They are absolutely perfect! I am planning to buy another pair (or Jess boots) in a dark brown colour as well. I just have to find a good deal :)
