Il just say I'm not exactly high fashion but I like to think I dress ok...who would wear these seriously ?
Can you imagine wearing these in snow or rain or to tesco?

Good Lord shock

I suppose I'm not Topshop's target demographic, but still...who came up with the idea? The mind boggles...

desperatehousewife2 Sat 27-Aug-16 08:27:05

Um, Cookiemonster maybe?

user1471888857 Sat 27-Aug-16 08:27:26

They are horrific aren't they ..sometimes Topshop try too hard.

Thisismyalias Sat 27-Aug-16 08:29:00

Hipsters will wear them ironically.

Trills Sat 27-Aug-16 09:14:25

User42378947 did you know you can go and change your name to something more recognisable?

It'll make it easier for people to talk to you.

I would not wear these boots, but I don't think they are quite as hideous as you make out. I live in a city, it doesn't rain that much, you could pick out enough "definitely dry days" to wear them if you really wanted to.

Trills-I stupidly can not remember the password I chose so it won't let me change it
I've tried everything I can think of ..so annoying

If you find a "forgotten your password" link you can get them to send a reset link to your email address.

Bagina Sat 27-Aug-16 09:32:56

Really Trills? They told me they don't do password resets anymore since the hacking. You have to set up a new account from a completely new email address. It's been a nightmare.

Trills Sat 27-Aug-16 09:47:34

I can see the "Forgotten your password?" button if I try to log in from another browser.

I haven't tried clicking it, because I haven't forgotten my password, but I had no reason to believe that it doesn't work.

YouMakeMyDreams Sat 27-Aug-16 09:49:01

I have reset my password many times since the hacking incident because I never remember it.

SanityClause Sat 27-Aug-16 09:49:05

I have done password resets since the hacking.

I changed it because of the hacking, but then couldn't remember what I'd changed it to, so had to reset.

I do agree with Trills. All the UserEleventyTrillion posters blend into one, and I tend to ignore all of them, because some are real GF, and I can't tell which is which.

AnchorDownDeepBreath Sat 27-Aug-16 09:49:15

Bagina that's not true. That would be ridiculous on MNHQs part, they'd have hundreds of dormant accounts, but I've reset my password frequently since the hacking and it's been fine.

ExcellentWorkThereMary Sat 27-Aug-16 09:49:25

I like those boots. I really like them. I'd totally wear them! I generally can't afford top shop prices, though.

JohnCheese Sat 27-Aug-16 09:54:28

They're slippers surely. wink

I'm curious ExcellentWork, where would you wear them?

HonkHonkNose Sat 27-Aug-16 10:01:59

Good god.

Do they belong to Cookie Monster?

Bagina Sat 27-Aug-16 10:03:29

I know it's ridiculous! Mn sent me an email saying it. I had to create a new email account. I deleted all my emails last week so can't show you now!

Bagina Sat 27-Aug-16 10:05:57

The link is there but you need to know your original password, despite it just saying to enter your new one.

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Sat 27-Aug-16 10:11:27

Back to the boots.. I have a suspicion the nineties are coming back in fashion. I would have worn these to a happy house rave with fairy wings.
I think shell suits will also have another moment.

caramelchaos Sat 27-Aug-16 10:11:55

I like them tooblush

bestofbothhovis Sat 27-Aug-16 10:17:49

I'd wear them in black
<hides>

I have a suspicion the nineties are coming back in fashion

I saw a teenage girl the other day who looked straight out of my own teenage years. Flowery dress, Doc Martens, denim jacket. Was quite a strange feeling, actually. She looked just like my friends and I did in 1995 when life was all about mourning Kurt Cobain and wishing we were Angela from My So-Called Life.

Trills Sat 27-Aug-16 11:37:59

A "reset my password" link that requires you to know your original password? How Kafkaesque.

Bagina Sat 27-Aug-16 11:40:21

Yes!!!

Boogers Sat 27-Aug-16 11:45:35

But, but, they're covered in what looks like towelling. Surely that would soak up water and make them a tad dangerous when it soaks the entire foot? Not to mention they'd look quite grubby quite quickly? Got to admit I thought they looked quite snazzy on the tumbnail before I opened the whole picture. Not my style, but I know someone who would wear these and rock them.
