Have found these half price on amazon reduced to £60 from £120. What do you think? Any fly fans out there?

Sorry forgot to explain - they are Fly London

Love them. Not my style but if they fit with your look they're gorgeous.

No, they're not nice. Send them to me instead grin

I'm looking for somethign a bit 'bovver booty' (but not too much like DMs) to go with jersey dresses to mix up the look at bit . I'm lucky enough to work from home most days so can wear what I like. The only bit I'm not too sure about is the laces, will they annoy me?I'm not used to boots with laces.

Love 'em, I think they will really look good worn as you describe.

Can you tie your own shoelaces?
I'm sure they won't bother you after a while, you might appreciate the fact that you can tighten them up.

I lived in victorian-style granny boots when I was a student - several hooks to lace; they looked so good (IMHO) that it was worth it.

I think I was taught how to tie my shoelaces when I was a child, it was a long time ago! Now, keeping them from becoming untied, that's a different matter.

I have ordered the boots to try, they fit well and although I originally ordered in petrol (teal) they have sent me green, which I now think I prefer. I do love boots - especially coloured ones. Makes me feel all autumny!

I love them! Which really surprises me as they aren't my style at all. Wish they were though - I'm just not cool enough

surferjet Thu 01-Sep-16 16:50:37

Just the sort of thing I wear.

I ❤️ Them.

Buzzardbird Thu 01-Sep-16 16:55:22

Fabulous, very jealous.

FurryLittleTwerp Thu 01-Sep-16 18:35:24

I really like them smile

OiWithThePoodlesAlready Thu 01-Sep-16 18:37:59

I like them but I think they are an awkward length to carry off. Anything like that makes my legs look like sausages.

surferjet Thu 01-Sep-16 18:59:48

Does anyone like these?

frikadela01 Thu 01-Sep-16 19:27:42

Love them but I'm biased towards boots in general!

OiWithThePoodlesAlready Thu 01-Sep-16 21:21:32

Oh surferjet no. They are not very nice at all.

surferjet Thu 01-Sep-16 21:36:59

Hmm. Ok.
They're not my usual style but I saw them on someone with a long black tight skirt and they looked really good.

OiWithThePoodlesAlready Thu 01-Sep-16 21:39:11

If you like them them go for it! You'd probably hate half (if not all) the stuff I wear grin it's what makes life interesting isn't it.

surferjet Thu 01-Sep-16 21:48:07

For sure grin

maggiethemagpie Thu 01-Sep-16 22:42:07

Not my thing surferjet but each to their own. Are they very pricey?

Cguk81 Thu 01-Sep-16 22:45:18

I love those Fly boots! In fact,I'm off to have a look on amazon now myself...

KikiAndSherona Thu 01-Sep-16 22:45:28

Not keen on the green boots at all. I know I'm definitely in the minority here! They remind me of something you'd wear as part of a steampunk costume.

surferjet Thu 01-Sep-16 22:49:30

£345 maggie.

SarahChez Fri 02-Sep-16 07:04:49

I don't suppose you have a link to them? ;)

U2HasTheEdge Fri 02-Sep-16 07:06:04

I need these in my life OP.

maggiethemagpie Fri 02-Sep-16 09:19:25

Well, I have decided the boots are a keeper! They have grown on me. Although I didn't order the green colour, I ordered teal, I actually quite like them now. Also they are really comfy and fit well straight away which is a sign I should keep them I think. Also they are RRP £125 and selling for well over £100 on amazon and ebay now, so I reckon I got a bargain!
