After a mixed response on MN Vogue, I thought id throw it open; I'm thinking of buying these boots - am I mad?

Ok, I've seen your pic. You can totally get away with it. I hate you.

I really like them. Think they would look great with blue denim jeans amongst others...

Yeeeee Hah!

They are very " hey everyone, just look at my feet", so for that reason, not for me.

(I prefer shoes that whisper).

Ah, you see like gobby shoes with a brash Texan accent! I think I will buy them, as I still really like them in spite of the critique. Thank you MNers!

Buy them, I think they're crisp and cool.

By the way, Amber, I'm loving your blog...... Lovely inspiration for my working wardrobe.

I hated them until I realised that they weren't actually open toed, but that it was in fact a wee shiny bit at the front. Very spatsish, not as bad as at first glance blush

I think the key with statement footwear is to keep everything else very very simple. Otherwise you'll end up looking fancy dress or like a madwoman. So yes grey skinnies and black tee or whatever, but he addition of even a leather jacket would make them too much.

I'd wear them to a festival, in my pre-kids days or if someone would take them off my hands for a weekend

Right - have ordered! Thank you all for your opinions, much appreciated.

Cointreau, thank you very much! Trust me, I love doing it more than anyone enjoys reading it!
