With winter in full swing there is a real chill in the air and it is essential to get hold of the right footwear to keep your toes warm. With today’s Groupon there is no danger of you getting even a hint of frostbite with a pair of toasty boots.
For just £59 instead of the usual £149 you can get a pair of Australian sheepskin Zippyboots. These have a two-part binded sole giving you more grip and better support, and a structured heel which supports the foot and minimises slumping. The best feature about this footwear is a zip-off top making it two boots in one. They come in Tan, Chocolate and Black so all you need to do is pick a colour that fits with your wardrobe.
Redfoot Shoes stock some of the most sought after shoes in the world of high street fashion. Their Zippyboots are a patented design which many people will be hankering after this season. The sheepskin lining is perfect for all weathers and will keep your feet warm this winter whilst providing the ultimate padded comfort. The zip system allows you to create four distinct styles meaning you can change your look whenever you like.
Standard postage costs £5.95 (please be warned that the package is quite large)
Sex sells, and the smart whizzes in the Groupon marketing team have finally realised that. While we see lots of gorgeous models advertising all the beauty deals, I think this deal for UGG-style Australian sheepskin boots actually comes the closest to softcore porn.
I’ve reproduced the image in question above, so that it will forever be on the web for eternity even after the deal goes dark on Groupon.
Still, looking past the arresting image (which was hard), I dug deeper and essentially, these seem good value, if the boots genuinely have Australian sheepskin lining them. This, however, I cannot tell by looking at the picture, nor reading the description. It says it is sheepskin, but I’ve not heard of Redfoot Revolution before, although their website looks very professionally done.
I do like the concept of Zippyboots though, where you can have two styles for the price of one.
The two problems I have with this deal is firstly, the P&P charge, which is hidden in the fine print. And secondly, the fact that this Autumn/Winter is the prime season for selling warm sheepskin lined boots, and they usually only go on sale at the start of Spring. This can only mean two things: Redfoot Revolution have gone bonkers and are not taking advantage of the natural demand for warm boots at the moment. Or they are still making lots of money on the £59 sale price. Or its not genuine Australian sheepskin.
Its up to you, and if you do need warm boots and they are genuine sheepskin, I think they are a bargain because equivalent ones from UGG will cost £100+, and thats without getting two styles for the price of one.
