Iore, Caterpillar boots are usually chunky and comfy but better looking than those Dune ones.

I don't like the heel. Generally dissed on MN I think, but I love Fly boots and last winter had a pair really similar to your link but flat. They were great. If wearing with tights, watch out for zip snag on the inner calf, mighty annoying.

Very odd heel - it makes them look cheap - sorry !

Lorek*I haveworn them with tights and a skirt as well as jeans smile they look good with both.

Have you looked at Clarks and others at Dune?

5madthings Sat 26-Oct-13 19:13:07

They are, I have had lots of compliments on them, super cmfyr, I walk a good two hours a day for school run and they are great. OK have to go over a field so needed something sturdy and weather proof. I have got them covered in mud and you just brush out off when it does and they look good as new.

Very happy with them and think they are very rreasoanbly priced as they are very good quality smile

I have been recomendig them to everyone!

Love them although my bank balance would not be so keen sad

IorekByrnisonsArmour Sat 26-Oct-13 19:12:08

I don't like skinny jeans so boots that work with tights and skirts would be good

Missbopeep Sat 26-Oct-13 19:12:08

I did have issues with the heels but when they are on with skinnies etc they look ok imo.

The thick sole balances it a bit but I do agree they are slightly odd!

I have knee boots too so these for me are more ankle boots.

IorekByrnisonsArmour Sat 26-Oct-13 19:08:33

5 they look fab!

I think the boots (both pairs) are so lovely, I'd buy them even though i don't like the heel.

IorekByrnisonsArmour Sat 26-Oct-13 19:05:27

miss I love yours!

Was worried they would be too short

Missbopeep Sat 26-Oct-13 19:03:44

Does that mean no one likes mine either sad

still unworn and have receipt.
They are really comfy and so warm.

5madthings Sat 26-Oct-13 19:03:12

I just got something similar, reiker boots, they are waterproof and lined, lovely eveyroen comments on them. Will find a link...

IorekByrnisonsArmour Sat 26-Oct-13 19:01:33

Miss they were on my shortlist smile

IorekByrnisonsArmour Sat 26-Oct-13 19:00:10

Yes I agree, it's the heel sad

I can only buy 1 pair of boots, I like chunky, not too high

I'll keep looking, what a PITA

Yes, exactly, there is something slightly out of proportion about the heel.

Missbopeep Sat 26-Oct-13 18:57:02

I have some Dune boots that are calf height with the same kind of heel almost and they look much better in the flesh. I think the price is reasonable- I paid almost that for mine which are just like high ankle boots.

Missbopeep Sat 26-Oct-13 18:55:05

I think they are nice.

LOLisNOTaPunctuationMark Sat 26-Oct-13 18:53:43

I love the boots, but not the heels. They look like they've just been put on as an after thought.
