Toying over a pair of these on asos as they are a great price but hesitating as they seem to have been around a while now.
What do you think? Are they on their way out?

I have a pair from last year and I love them, I wear them a lot and get lots of compliments on them whenever I wear them

I love them, they're comfortable, go with lots of things in my wardrobe, so I'd wear them whether they were in or not if you see what I mean

I live in a backwater though, I don't think they've been 'in' here yet, for them to go out again grin

I think they're marmite - you either love them or hate them ..
I'm in the latter camp but it's a personal opinion!!

If they price is right and you like them then go for it

Thanks smile they are definitely marmite, but I'm in the other camp! Just want to get a bit of wear out of them iykwim

I bought a pair last week and have worn them every day as they are so comfortable. They look good on and give me and extra 3 inches height, which I love.
Thumbs up here. I ordered the prune, but I do have my eye on the green pair at asos too!

Have the Thelma and the Bea. Personally I think the Thelmas will be in fashion for longer than the Beas (though again am in a backwater so will be able to wear them for another decade till word reaches the far SW), but the Beas are so, so much more comfy and easy to walk in. Can't manage more than a trot in the Thelmas but can properly run in the Beas - have a toddler so this has been well tested smile

I have the prune suede Ash bowie wedges and wear them lots. Comfortable and nice with skinnies

SanityClause Fri 08-Feb-13 23:42:57

I really don't get them.

Anyway, they've been around for about 3 or 4 years now - they can't have much longer to run, surely?

Leather Fri 08-Feb-13 23:43:09

Thanks all,
I've resisted the checkout button thus far and told myself if they're still there on Sunday I'll get 'em!
That way it's fate deciding not me grin

Leather Fri 08-Feb-13 23:44:57

X post Sanity I know, that's kinda how I feel although I do like them, I feel like I've dithered over them for too long

DuchessFanny Sat 09-Feb-13 08:56:39

love, love, LOVE them ! Thinking about the Suede Ash Bowie myself ...

cazza40 Sat 09-Feb-13 10:05:46

Get them !! I got some in the sales too and they are so comfortable and look good on. My DDs finally think I look a bit cool and tell me to wear them

PissStickMeg Sat 09-Feb-13 12:34:39

Same. Wore them to a School function and had loads of oohs from the girls there... Okay they are 10-11 but I'll take what I can!

vjg13 Sat 09-Feb-13 14:01:51

I've got the ash bowie in plum and love them. Really comfortable and look good IMO!

Leather Sat 09-Feb-13 15:10:18

Ok, so you lot talked me into it, I just ordered the Bowie in dark camel suede! grin
Can't wait for them to arrive now!

DuchessFanny Sat 09-Feb-13 15:12:51

Sod it ! I'm getting some too << wants to join ASH gang >>

Leather Sat 09-Feb-13 15:26:11

Go Duchess! Do it, do it, do it!
[enabler]

What colour are you going for? I was torn between the tan and navy but went for the tan on the basis I've got more that goes with them I think.
Love the prune but I find burgundys and purples are difficult to wear somehow

DuchessFanny Sat 09-Feb-13 16:25:50

Nice to meet a fellow enabler leather ... i swear i have friends who purposely don't shop with me anymore ... i'm always ' oooh yes, lovely, buy it ... ' grin

I'm going for the Tan ! but i liked the navy too <<wondering if DH will notice two new pairs of boots >> .....

Leather Sat 09-Feb-13 16:54:48

Ooooh just get them both and tell him they were BOGOF!
Well, they practically are anyway, mine (from Amazon) are £95
I was trying (and failing) to get my DH's opinion on the colour options. After some time he glanced sideways at them on the screen and said "please order them if it means you stop talking to me about them" grin

cazza40 Sat 09-Feb-13 16:59:35

So tempted to get another pair now - is asos the cheapest place to buy atm ?

joliejolie Sat 09-Feb-13 17:04:43

I find the prune colour really easy to wear. Like black, it goes with so many colours and is just that bit of colour on your feet. I would recommend anyone get the Bowies because they are very comfy and, as PissStickMeg said, they will impress the tween dd, which rarely ever happens to me! grin

Try Brand Boudoir cazza40 they are the cheapest and I think they price match!

Annianni Sat 09-Feb-13 17:44:13

I've got 2 pairs, they're great.
I got mine from brandosa, paid £52 for taupe and £53 for prune (i think)

Annianni Sat 09-Feb-13 17:47:02

Brandosa was free delivery and returns too, whereas brand boudoir charge both delivery and returns.

DuchessFanny Sat 09-Feb-13 17:51:17

leather just lol'ed at your DH !! I'm not entirely sure mine will notice, however, if he likes something he's 'nice ..new ?' at which point my crap lying face kicks in and luckily he laughs 'new then !"

CambridgeBlue Sat 09-Feb-13 18:16:17

I am seriously tempted by some of these as well, off to browse and may end up joining your Ash club shortly smile

Really recommend Prune as a colour. They go with everything, they won't date as a shade < I suspect Bowie wedges may well do at some point! > and they look nice with a mini and black opaques.

Leather Thu 14-Feb-13 16:10:20

Well, they're here!
<strokes suede lovingly>
I really like them, the quality seems really good and they are comfy so far trying them on around the house.
I'm looking forward to giving them an outing tomorrow maybe,
please stay dry weather!!
