treading softly with mou

I love sticking my hand into a barrel of pulses, and walking barefoot on grass or tiles.  Once during a visit to Spain, I got in trouble for taking off my flip-flops at the Alhambra, but I didn’t care. I needed to feel those cool, ancient mosaics beneath my feet. It’s all about texture.

When I go shopping,  I have to touch everything – soft leather handbags, cable knit jumpers, chocolate cake… If something catches my eye and it’s within reach (and let’s face it, with my 6ft frame, it generally is) it’s going to be decorated with my fingerprints faster than H&M sold out of Lanvin this morning.

So, it stands to reason that I love mou boots. Made from ethically sourced material, they’re warm, cosy and stylish. I can’t keep my hands off them, or my feet out of them. Well, for the next few wintery months at least…

    Do you know if there is a shop in London that sells them. I am interested in the Bandau. I know that there is the website but I would like to try them before buying them.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hi Sonia – I don’t think there’s a shop that sells the bandeau at the moment, but I know that mou have a really good returns policy if they’re not what you want.
