Lifting the Lid on Jambu's Cruise Boots for Adventurous Moms

The last time I wrote about this several weeks back, the lid on this shoe box was closed.  Now, it's time to look inside and find out what cool style Jambu headquarters in New York sent me to try out and review.  They gave me a choice, so I asked them for something stylish and functional that would be just the ticket for adventurous moms like me.

When I unpacked The Cruise Jambu boots -- brand new this season -- that are pictured above, they did not disappoint.  In fact, I was absolutely floored at how superior these looked up close than the images on the brand's website.

That's not to say that all the product photography was not top notch and accurate, Jambu's various views of these were quite stunning actually.  It's just that the gorgeous rich chocolate brown suede-like texture with taupe accents of these sporty boots have to be touched and the other fashion nuances in this style boot such as the contrasting trim and other detailing have to be seen up close to truly be appreciated.

This style of footwear is hands down the perfect transitional boot for fall and going into winter for moms on the go.
