Hermes Jumping Boots

Wednesday, 8 September 2010
I managed to nab a pair of Hermes boots at a great price and practically worn it to death over the past 2 winters. I've been dreaming of these droolworthy Jumping Boots for a while. At £1400, they're certainly not cheap. They were impossible to find in any Hermes stores that I've been to (not that I was willing to part with such a large sum of money on shoes - yet) but they've finally arrived on Hermes.com.

  1. I've tried them at my local store but found them unfortunately too hard and uncomfortable to wear. It's probably a problem of my legs. :-(

  2. Oh no! I don't think the problem lies in your legs. You're so slim! The other style, I think they're called story boots or something similar, are so comfortable and much cheaper too.

  3. I have no idea what's really wrong. ;-)

    My SA told me that H has produced a special version, the so called "Japanese jumping boots", which has the same design but they are made to fit the Asian better. Unfortunately they are only available in Japan.

  4. A lot of the luxury brands seem to design exclusive collections for the Japanese market. There are actually tons of Asians outside of Japan. Hope they realise that!

  5. They are very stiff because they are actually equestrian boots for jumping! Just give them time to break in -wear around the house in evenings. You can also place a heel lift under your heal until the stiff back part behind the knee softens. Make sure your SA helps you will sizing.. I had no idea that there was a slightly shorter boot for Asian women or those of us not blessed with long legs. I'm a pretty standard size.
