Another boot thread (sorry). Should I buy these in black or brown?

I'm leaning towards the black, but I do like the brown (or tan or whatever it's called) as well. For info, I live in black, grey or khaki skinnies.

Thoughts?

I think brown looks better smile

I had a similar dilemma a few years ago - I got both grin

Brown = lovely.

Banananananana Mon 19-Sep-16 20:56:11

costa That is fucking unhelpful grin

Costacoffeeplease Mon 19-Sep-16 20:57:22

I know grin

I possibly wear the black pair more, but prefer the brown - so on that basis, get the brown

Runningupthathill82 Mon 19-Sep-16 20:58:33

I like the brown ones more.

Banananananana Mon 19-Sep-16 20:58:37

Now everyone's said brown so far...interesting. They are lovely.

Oooh where are these from OP? They're very nice! I agree you should get both grin

HesMyLobster Mon 19-Sep-16 20:59:38

I neeeeeed them! Where are they from?

Ps buy both, obvs! wink

Banananananana Mon 19-Sep-16 21:01:31

If only I could afford both! grin

They're Blowfish, minnie. Linky

Banananananana Mon 19-Sep-16 21:02:04

STOP SAYING BOTH

Costacoffeeplease Mon 19-Sep-16 21:19:33

(whispers) both

Banananananana Mon 19-Sep-16 21:22:02

Right I'm reporting you costa

grin

I wanted a pair of Hudson Horrigans but I cannot afford them. These boots are my compromise and buying both pairs totally defeats the object. Booooo.

olderthanyouthink Mon 19-Sep-16 21:36:34

I've had this problem, I bought the brown... Then a year later bought the black wink

What colours do you wear most?

HesMyLobster Tue 20-Sep-16 07:43:23

Hudson horrigans on sale and not much more than the blowfish ones :

Sorry! wink

Buy the ones you think you'd wear the most now. ( the black ones?) and then get the brown ones in the sale! 😀

olderthanyouthink Tue 20-Sep-16 10:21:30

^ this

Banananananana Tue 20-Sep-16 11:39:15

lobster thank you so much...but I don't like the black leather Horrigans! <wails> That would have been such a bargain.

destiny I like your thinking.

I might have to go for the black....

petitdonkey Tue 20-Sep-16 11:41:13

I only wear black boots with black jeans or in the evening, prefer brown with denim so I would go with brown if you're looking for casual

Ahh. Are they not leather? Personally I wouldn't buy non-leather boots.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Tue 20-Sep-16 22:16:22

They're quite ££ for non-leather but I buy non-leather anyway so I'd buy both wink

keeponkeepinon Tue 20-Sep-16 22:42:50

Honestly, you could get something in leather for that price. I'd always choose leather now, unless they are very extremely cheap. You can get horrigans for a good price. i've got some beige ones on ebay but am I allowed to say that?

PaperdollCartoon Tue 20-Sep-16 23:58:07

I like the brown. I'm a boot addict though. I also don't wear leather so the fact they're not is fine with me!

AverysillyoldHector Wed 21-Sep-16 07:51:45

Nice boots but overpriced for plastic maybe? These are very similar and leather, might be worth keeping an eye out for some returned stock.
