New Season’s Hot Picks at The Golden Boot.

The new Spring/Summer season is well and truly upon us and the shop is looking very spring like with new stock from all our leading suppliers, Hispanitas, Wonders and Gabor to name a few. It’s also the time of year for TGB staff to decide on their new staff dress colour for the summer. This year the popular choice is green ! It’s a really versatile colour and blends well with both our core colours black and navy. Work shoe decisions have already been made, and popular choices are…

Hispanitas 51008 Aloehispanitas 51008 aloe jeans

Coveted in the office by Tracy and Jane is the super stylish 51008 Aloe! Jeans is probably the more sensible choice for work but the monchrome white is proving hard to resist! Both colours come with a matching bag BV50950 which the ideal size for using everyday.

Clarks Orla Berylclarks orla beryl tan

Janie, who is never shy of wearing heels, is adding a touch of glamour to her workwear wardrobe with this very eyecatching design. Janie has been very happily wearing the ‘Orla Dilly’ for autumn/winter and a massive fan of the Clarks x Orla Kiely collection!

Wonders 4710 Montilla.wonders montilla navy

Dept manager Jane wears a lot of Wonders and has been more than happy with 3604 Jovita. Comfort and classic styling are what takes Jane back to the Spanish brand, so it’s no surprise she really likes 4710 Montilla. In two neutral colourways with a sturdy block heel, soft patent upper and cushioned footbed, an added bonus for long spells on your feet !

Wonders 6002 Abonawonders abona navy

Trudi loves a loafer so the classic shape of 6002 Abona has really appealed to her. And as a big fan of ‘preppy’ styling, Trudi loves the Clarks Hotel Bustle fishermans sandal which she’ll be wearing with capri pants.

There are still new styles to come and sandals to choose for when the sun really shines so new decisions will have to be made. 7605 Arlanza  wedge sandal from Wonders comes in three colourways and 51298 Jazmin in tan or 51118 Jazmin in black from Hispanitas both with laser cut detail, are bang on trend for SS15!

Fans of ‘Orla Marianne’ from last summer will love ‘Orla Beryl’. A real show stopper of  a shoe in a rich dark tan which sits on a towering chunky high heel and exposed platform sole.

Exclusive Jeffery West Evening at The Golden Boot

On Thursday evening, in celebration of our love for the brand and in honour of the excellent craftsmanship, premium quality and eye-catching designs, we hosted a unique Jeffery West evening.

IMG_6904_1

Our loyal Jeffery West customers were joined by the co-owner, Guy West, for an evening full of fun, food, drink and everything Jeffery West. From Cufflinks to Canes, Scarves to Shoes, the shop was transformed into a unique Jeffery West brand experience.

The shoe personalisation by artist Aasen Stephenson was a big hit during the evening, with Guy West’s personal highlight being one customer’s choice of the words ‘Gin and Tonic’ to be tattooed onto his brand new Jeffery West boots.

A big thank you must also be given to local businesses Anno Distillers Hush Heath Estate and Frederic Bistro for the delightful Kentish gin, English Pink Sparkling wine, cider and delicious canapés. Also Guy Salmon Maidstone  who had three Land Rover Defenders parked outside for the duration of the evening.

All in all the evening was great fun and a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by staff and customers alike. We hope this will be one of many special events to follow.

Weald Of Kent Ploughing Match

WKPM 20th September 2014

We arrived bright and early at Marden ready for the WKPM (Weald of Kent Ploughing Match), I must add ploughing had already begun at 7.30am! We were here no not to plough, but to showcase some selected country clothing and footwear from our Mens, Ladies and Childrens departments at The Golden Boot: Featuring Hunter, Dubarry, Seeland, R.M Williams and Barbour.

We were not really sure what to expect from the event but we wanted to focus on promoting what we had to offer and what The Golden Boot is all about, which was a great opportunity to do so in different surroundings. It was lovely to meet and introduce ourselves to some new customers, of whom we hope to see back in our store sometime soon.

Untitled-5

The event was a huge success, from 9am it was bustling with lots of familiar faces and plenty of crowds. It was a really good atmosphere with lots of friendly people, it made the day really enjoyable and we were pleased to have been a part of it. It turned out from a phone call back to the store that we were busier in the field than we were back at the shop. We were thankful the weather held out and we hope to be back next year with a lot more tweed!
