quite liking the converse silver sequin trainers and saw these boots, would you think I was mad as a 45 year old to get these?

They're awful, it's not your age, it's the boots

ThisPasadenaHomemaker Tue 25-Oct-16 11:26:26

They're lovely.


If you're planning on being Barbarella for Halloween 😂.

You risk looking like a 70s pop star - not good

thanks for talking me down! grin

now about those silver sequin converse... smile

If you're going back to the 70s to live they're perfect. Otherwise - hideous regardless of your age

Agree with everyone else! It's not your age, it's the boots. They are revolting.

I'm not really a converse kind of girl, but the sequin trainers are really nice for someone who does like converse. I'd go with those!

The boots are horrid shock and only suitable if you plan on trying out as a Dallas cowboys cheerleader.

I did use to have silver leather metallic Superga sneakers and they were fab and very versatile too. Might be an alternative to the sequin converse.

Oblomov16 Tue 25-Oct-16 13:57:48

They are vile. And I love everything silver.

Grim. Are you an Abba fan?

Cakescakescakes Tue 25-Oct-16 16:26:01

They aren't great. But there are loads of gorgeous metallic boots around at the minute. I tried on a few pairs in Next the other day. So don't give up your silver dreams smile

TheMasterMurderedMargarita Tue 25-Oct-16 16:30:01

What would you wear them with? 😆
I don't. Mind them but they are rather particular.
I have silver leather converse. Practical and stylish haha.

ample Tue 25-Oct-16 16:30:38

God no.
It's certainly not your age. They are horrid and you would end up looking like a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader from the knees down.

Epic fail for Converse.

ample Tue 25-Oct-16 16:32:55

Ha! Just seen botemp had the same thought.

NoIsAnAnswer Tue 25-Oct-16 16:33:31

What would you wear with them?

EweAreHere Tue 25-Oct-16 16:38:25

Hahahahaha! My first thought was also Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader. gringringrin

ample Tue 25-Oct-16 16:40:25

I'm a huge Converse fan, they make the best sneakers so I can't believe they actually put their good name to those boots confused.
These are better though not boot boots

paulapantsdown Tue 25-Oct-16 16:42:21

They are great if you planning on joining an ABBA tribute band!

Louisajohnson224 Tue 25-Oct-16 16:46:37

Did you ever watch the program heartbeat?
Reminds me of something the barmaid would of wore..awful
Metallic boots are in fashion but I would steer away from them

PacificDogwod Tue 25-Oct-16 16:52:36

So many, many lover silver boots about just now and you fall for those?! sequinned Converse may have more street cred but are just as awful IMO

PacificDogwod Tue 25-Oct-16 16:58:07

Still space agey but not hideous IMO

TheMasterMurderedMargarita Tue 25-Oct-16 17:13:39

Those are mine *ample*.
They aren't so shiny in real life.

PinkiePiesCupcakes Tue 25-Oct-16 17:19:27

Are you planning a Ziggy Stardust tribute act at some point in the near future?

grin

They're not converse just have stars on them!
