Rockport Launch: "Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more"*

It seems like there was a lot happening last night. In the manner of these things, you wait all week for a nice event and then 3 come along at once. So while I was schlepping out to Dundrum on the LUAS to Harvey Nichols, Clerys were having their own little shindig on O’Connell Street, to launch The Rockport Company's 800 square foot concession on the ground floor of this popular department store.

To mark the occasion, Clerys have been running a series of giveaways all week on their Facebook page which, if you’re not already a fan, is well worth checking out. There's still time left to throw your hat in the ring to win today's offering -- a fetching grey ankle boot.

Now, as himself will testify, my poor wee feet have taken a bit of a beating over the years and are permanently in need of an auld rub. So I’m delighted to see that Rockport pride themselves on engineering comfortable footwear, which are also stylish and contemporary.

Here are my picks from the current collection.

Anna boots - the lace ups (my fave) are €160 and the tall boots €170.
Audrey Welt Oxfords, coming in at €115. I like the grey.
Lily Welt Riding Boots, €170

This sounds like a much better event than the one in your previous post. I only go to these things for the nibbles!! I'm off to write a strongly worded letter to the metro about this.
