I liked these dune polar ones but no zip and they're a bit piratey

dune beauty suspect a zip at the back to be annoying

office front too wrinkly

ugg too warm too much money? black sole looks a bit naff with suede

any suggestions?

I have a great fancy for these, but they may be too horsey?

EdgarAirbombPoe Wed 03-Nov-10 19:36:55

I have these in brown and in red. They are about 4 or 5 years old, warm, dry, hardwearing, love them.

Asda are selling brown boots that fit your description perfectly. £36 - they are lovely. I have the brown and black ones and they are super comfy.

EldonAve Wed 03-Nov-10 22:02:49

thanks for all the suggestions

I'm quite liking the Esprit suede ones

Zippy01 Thu 04-Nov-10 08:17:44

I second teh Asda ones, are leather and better than most more than double the price...I love them!

EldonAve Thu 04-Nov-10 10:59:10

Thanks Zippy01 - I couldn't find them online and we don't have Asda with clothes/shoes round here unfortunately

these from Ecco come in brown too, waterfroof, were linked last week on another thread.

EldonAve Fri 05-Nov-10 17:36:08

thanks, they look good, I'll see if they have them in town

Can recommend the Hush Puppy ones that Tethersend recommended further up here, I ordered them on the off-chance and they're great. Rich colour, and really really comfy. Very pleased! I was worried they'd look 'granny-ish' in the flesh as I've never had HP boots before, but they're pretty good.

Thanks Tethersend!

These look quite nice, also think Ecco boots are pretty good, comfortable and look decent too. Knee_Length_Boots_in_Brown_Leather.aspx

Ninky - how tall are the Hush Puppy boots as in how high is the boot shaft?

NinkyNonker Sat 06-Nov-10 20:55:42

I'll dig out a tape measure tomorrow Pannacotta, but in the meantime they are upper calf level on me. Not knee high if you see what I mean, but fairly flattering as they are not so short that they cut off across the widest part of my calf. I'm 5'8" with approx a 33" inside leg so not short.

Have you looked at timberland boots - bought two styles from their range - very nice!

NinkyNonker Sun 07-Nov-10 19:08:54

Hi Pannacotta, just measured them and the height from sole is 14.5 inches. Circumference of the top is 14 inches. That's on a size 6.

Pannacotta Sun 07-Nov-10 21:36:53

Thanks Ninky, it was franke who asked!
