About LAMO Footwear:
LAMO Footwear is headquartered just outside the city of Los Angeles. We live in downtown LA and on the beach, and when it comes to the look and feel of our footwear, it’s easy to see a strong LA influence. The LAMO LA lifestyle look is relaxed, comfortable – yet with an edge and a definite eye for the trend.
Nothing says ‘relaxed comfort’ like sheepskin boots. And while Australia is the birthplace of the ugg boot – which, by the way is the name for this type of boot in Oz – California was where they were put on the map. All it took was one enterprising Aussie surfer to stuff his suitcase with several pairs, show up on LA’s prime surf spots and get his fledging business bought up by a major footwear player. The rest, as we know, is history: a look that is fashionably anti-fashion and devotees wearing boots year-round because they are simply the most comfortable thing imaginable.
The secret to sheepskin footwear lies in using the right kind of sheepskin. The best sheepskins, meaning those that have dense, yet soft to the touch wool, are from Australian Merino sheep. LAMO is proud to exclusively use only premium quality Australian sheepskins and Australian Merino wool.
We at LAMO love fashion in all its facets, but mostly because it’s fun and a great way to let people express their personalities and moods. But we are serious about reducing the environmental impact of our business as much as possible. Recycling and conscientious use of resources are a given, and we also continuously research and test ways to increase the use of Earth-friendly production methods and materials. We respect the rights of our workforce and our entire product line is made in factories that are strictly supervised and highly rated for compliance with international labor standards.
LAMO Footwear Winter Wonderland Boots Mom Review:
Can you believe I’ve gone all winter wearing my kids’ boots? Yep. Last winter my kids work both pairs of my winter boots and suffice to say, they didn’t make it this season. When I was approached by LAMO Footwear, I was thrilled to be getting the chance to review a pair of their awesome boots and finally get replace one of those destroyed boots from last winter!
They have such a wonderful assortment of footwear, it really was hard to choose! I was initially smitten with the Bel Air Short Boots (pictured above). They looked simple to take on and take off and my heart fluttered at all the feminine and glitzy details! Let’s just say it continues to be on my wish list!
Another pair of LAMO Footwear that caught my eye was the Footcandy. As you can tell, I like shoes and boots with that extra bit of fancy appeal. It comes in both red and black color choices, but I was particularly fond of the red moccasins. They look so cozy and pretty to warm up and help protect my feet from my wooden floors. The Footcandy is definitely a pair of moccasins I would wear every single day!
Instead, I was sent the Winter Wonderland Boots. They’re a more practical choice and would most likely match more of my outfits anyway. The LAMO Footwear Winter Wonderland Boots are suede boots with faux fur lining, decorative toggle closures, and high density comfort-flex rubber soles. They are available in chocolate color only. I picked them out in a size 7 and I couldn’t wait to try them out!
As soon as they reached my doorstep, I tried the LAMO Footwear Winter Wonderland Boots on right away. They fit my feet like a glove and boy, the comfort and warmth they provide!!! They feel like you’re wearing toasty slippers and unlike some previous boots I’ve owned that were similar, they actually have support and traction. I was so glad to know that they help me get around the slippery ice to provide more sure footing.
The only down side that I saw where the suede boot strings. They don’t like to stay tied. It was easily rectified by tying a double knot and they would stay put that way. It’s really not a big deal and it wouldn’t have deterred me from buying the boots at all. Other than that, I’ve been perfectly happy with them and they are so lightweight on my feet that it makes getting around as a pregnant lady that much easier!
Where To Buy: The LAMO Winter Wonderland Boots retails for $64 and are available at www.lamofootwear.com.
