Ash boots instead of Isabel Marant

I REALLY like these boots by Isabel Marant:

www.selfridges.com/en/Shoes/Categories/NEW-IN/Women/Dicker-suede-ankle-boots_783-10004-3747333129/?previewAttribute=Tan

but I'm not going to pay £375 for them.

So I found these:

www.asos.com/Ash/Ash-Jalouse-Spiral-Camel-Western-Boots/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2571367&SearchQuery=ash&Rf-700=1000&Rf900=1447&Rf-300=1902&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Camel

What are Ash boots like? Well made? Comfy?

And is this a nicer colour than the camel?

I do love this colour, as long as the picture accurately represents it. But camel might go better with more things, especially with the spring and summer coming along.

Any thoughts anyone??

Thank you!

I think I may just have ordered a pair too....

Justasecond - have you ordered them yet? You asked for an update! I think the colour depiction of the Prune on the Brand Boudoir site is accurate. Lovely colour! As for me - I didn't realise the Jalouse had no side zip and I can't get them on over my stupid high instep, so that answers that question. I'm still a bit too high on prescription-only pain relief to decide whether to keep the Prune Spirals - not sure whether the 40 is a bit too big (I ordered a 39 as well, which is definitely too small). Is this reality, or is it a hallucination? Who knows!!
As so many of us seem to have bought these, maybe we should scrap the idea of the Mumsnet Scarf, and make these the Mumsnet boots grin?

I'm a 39 lately, so ordered the 38. They are tightish and can only be worn with thin socks or tights, but they have given over the past few wears.
Slippery soles though and I went arse over tit the other day, but I'm not sure I can blame the shoes for that!! blush

These are sooo the boots I have had in my head for a little while as ones I need to buy. So another buyer here smile

Might wait until I am not off my face and try the size 39 again whilst wearing tights/thinner socks....
