If you haven’t heard of Lemon Jelly, where have you been?! They’ve been around since 2011 and have been providing trendy boots to fashionistas one pair at a time. Hunter’s are the iconic tall rainboots whereas Lemon Jellys are the iconic (IMO) rain chelsea boots.
I had the chance to attend the 2018 spring/summer collection event in Montreal where I was able to discover their different footwear (they make sandals too!) but I really got to see how creative their bootie styles are. Covered with glitter, chunky platform, matte or gloss finish, there’s a pair for you regardless of your fashion style or personality.
The event is where I discovered the Velvety collection, a pair of boots with a velvet finish that can withstand rain. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! I immediately knew I needed to get myself a pair of these. Not only are they super comfy, but they also control odour, humidity and temperature. AND they smell like lemons! I absolutely love the Velvety boots because they have the classic black bootie look and are appropriate to wear rain or shine.
When you first put them on, you’ll notice that they’re a tad narrow. This is a concern for me when trying on any pair of shoes or boots since I have wide feet. However, as you wear them throughout the day, they mould to your feet and are absolutely comfortable! They’re so easy to slip on with the tab at the back and don’t brush your ankles. As someone who’s prone to blisters, these booties didn’t give me any whatsoever.
These booties retail for $158 and if you order a pair online before 3PM EST, they ship same day! Do you have a pair of Lemon Jellys? Let me know what your favourite style is in the comments below!
