Are these boots too 'man like'

I don't know. Can boots be too man like? Is that a problem?

What matters is whether or not you like them. The design with holes in reminds me too much of shoes I wore as a kid in the 70s and 80s. That would be more of an issue for me than whether they looked man like.

They look lovely but I think would be quite hard to wear successfully. Flat boots need very sharp dressing otherwise they look Greenham Common circa 1985. Particularly difficult with trousers unless you are v tall and v slim and they are v skinny. Nice with skirts and dresses but in the right setting - more school run than boardroom

I'm very hippy hoppy so it is just the complete opposite of what I would wear, I'm sure many people could pull it off though and look fab grin!

Its quite a severe look Jajas. I take my hat off to anyone who can pull it off. grin I like the style of brogues but at my size they would just look odd.

Oh god they're horrible but then I couldn't abide a silk shirt or a tapered trouser (ha ha) to be within a mile of me so whaddyo I know!

FreePeaceSweet Thu 17-Jan-13 21:43:40

Ooh I think I like them. I'd wear with tapered trousers and like carbon says a silk shirt. I saw www.vivaladiva.com/shop/daniel-gallant-brogue/bj057/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=6458#colour:Black,size:these when browsing the other day. I love how shiny they are. grin

With the right outfit I think they'd look great with skirts/dresses/ skinnies and silk shirts etc. I wouldn't wear them as too old (52) and am not the right shape but I love them.

I like them, not my style but could look very interesting with something tight. Why not? smile

valiumredhead Thu 17-Jan-13 16:10:46

Ignore me - I clearly no NOTHING wink

I think they are lovely! I would happily wear them with skirts, dresses and skinnies. I am too skint to buy them, but you should.

Thanks for tips- may hold off and see if they go into the sale!

Snort! grin

I wear similar shoes. Sorry, Valium grin.

I try to buy narrow ones though as I think they look more feminine My feet are pretty narrow too. I typically wear mine with black skinny jeans.

NotMostPeople Thu 17-Jan-13 15:55:01

Well theya are but that could look great in the same way brogues can. However I wouldn't say they'd be a core part of a capsule wardrobe as core items need to go with lots of items and you'd be limited with these.

valiumredhead Thu 17-Jan-13 15:51:04

Yes they are vile. Sorry grin

Oops here's link

In my continuing quest to develop a classic, capsule wardrobe I thought about getting [[ http://www.harrods.com/product/wilson-leather-boot/kg-by-kurt-geiger/000000000002830236?cat1=bc-kg-by-kurt-geiger&cat2=bc-kg-by-kurt-geiger-for-her these ]]. Do you think that they are too man like though?

I was thinking about wearing with thick black tights and skirts etc....
