I've been struggling with this for the last couple of years - I had the perfect pair, wore them to death and never found anything as good again!

I'm looking for an ankle boot that is:
-black
-low heel (1.5 inch or so max)
-look smart enough to wear with a work dress as well as with skinnies etc
-not clumpy

Help!

Hudsons?
How smart/what style are your work dresses?

Ignore Hudson...too casual!

Not smart-smart, looking for something that wouldn't look out of place with a shift dress or similar.

You've practically described the boots I am wearing today!. They're from M&S but are a few years old. The nearest I've found are these: www.marksandspencer.com/leather-ankle-boots/p/p22478523?image=SD_01_T02_8510_Y0_X_EC_90&color=BLACK&prevPage=plp&pdpredirect

In the right general ballpark monkey but heel is too high

Bit pricey - but also available in black.

I wouldn't been seen dead wearing Uggs unless as slippers, but some of their non-sheepskin boots are lovely.

MagnumAddict thanks for your recommending ECCO boots - I'm wearing my shiny new pair right now.

I have been looking for a brown/tan pair of Chelsea boots for a while - they were right at the top of my price range but I got a few quid off - and I know I will get years of wear out of them.

I've just ordered a pair from Boden that fit your description to a T
Can't remember what they are called though

So I got the parnell boots from dune which fit your criteria pretty well I think. Just to mention there's 20% off ladies at dune today. Not sure how long for. There is lots of nice stuff on there.
