I've read lots about this make in here but have never tried them myself.

I'm looking for something that I can wear with skirts and dresses through the spring.

what do people tank of these boots?

Many thanks

I love fringe!

But I think these are a bit clumpy and, if worn with a dress, probably wildly unflattering to the legs.

Love them !

Cute! Really like and I'd wear with bare legs / short skirts and dresses too.

I don't like the moccasinny front bit and I think they'd look really clompy on.

I don't like them. They look like one little old Mexican lady would wear them!

These are slightly better

I'd say they are already dated. Worn in the 1890s by Navaho tribespeople.... I'm not a fan. The same style on a small heel, much nicer. IMO.

They're horrible 😮

HarmonicaJones Sun 28-Feb-16 11:18:41

Honestly? They're shockingly awful.

They do have a hidden 2 " wedge heel so might be more flattering on than people think.

Babymamamama Sun 28-Feb-16 11:46:22

They are already dated. Saw similar around 2 years ago. And I think they'd mark quite easily.

They're a bit pocahontis. Yes, they will date very quickly.

I think fringe boots have been around for a good few seasons now and show no sign of going away so I wouldn't worry about them dating, especially if you are wanting them for wear this spring. I don't like the Ash ones though and have seen much nicer around. ASOS will probably have a good selection, I saw some gorgeous ones there a few weeks ago and I've seen some nice ones in River Island

Love these

Absolutely vile.

I love them!

I like them. Cute with tanned legs. I also like these to go with jeans.

louloubelle2 Mon 29-Feb-16 17:27:22

They are too clumpy for skirts I think, but as they are in fashion, there will be plenty of alternatives around. Asos is probably a good bet. (just seen Asos has already been recommended as I was about to hit send)

They will definitely date, so if you want them to last longer than this year, and £165 is a lot of money for you, then don't bother.

I think they're horrid. But then I thought that of the wedge heeled trainers which spawned a thousand copies, so what do I know? confused

polyhymnia Mon 29-Feb-16 18:02:09

I was in their shop the other day and saw these. The aging hippy side of me was drawn to them for a moment, tbh, but I thought then that they wouldn't be a great investment at that price as the fringes would very quickly date - in fact, I'd say are already dated. (Had a fringed pair of short boots 5+ years ago). So, though I see why you fancy them, I'd agree with majority.
Having said that, I do like my (much plainer) Ash Virgins, which are very comfortable.

polyhymnia Mon 29-Feb-16 18:03:16

PS - I also don't like wedge heeled trainer type shoes, only 'flat' ones.
