CYBIL'S 2010 Ankle boot thread.

(51 Posts)
CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 11:23:02

As I stomped along the other evening wearing my knee high boots and feeling like Liz Macdonald I realised I need a pair of ankle boots to wear with dresses/tights

Could be shoe booty, I like suede

Hidden platform is good

Fly my pretties, fly!!

I have got the black Sam Edelman boots that are on this page. I love them!

tethersjinglebellend Sun 12-Dec-10 12:01:29






What do you love/hate about those ones?

petitdonkey Sun 12-Dec-10 12:02:03

(The heeled ones, not the wedge)

<claps hands excitedly>

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 15:32:46

Ah ha! cocolepew comes out of the woodwork, lured by a boot thread

well, went shopping and tried on a couple of pairs in jones

when I have looked at all the ones you ahve linked to I will return

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 15:38:44

tethers I love the first Urban outfitters ones

Tried a load on in Marks, either my feet have grown a size or theirs were tiny

these looked FAb on but had a thin, unforgiving sole that I know I would regretbut if they went down to £40 I might be able to overlook that!

bought these which look AWFUL here but are cute as buttons and comfy to boot

scroll down to the pic of Queenie - how fashion-forward was she?

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:29:33

Fantastic Baldy! peep toe shoe boots, who-da thunk it

BoysAreLikeDogs Sun 12-Dec-10 17:31:18

I know ! I did a double take then tipped my hat to her

MayorNaze Sun 12-Dec-10 17:33:30

i was tempted a while back by some purple suedey ones in m&s...hang on...

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:34:49

these are BEE ooo TIFUL but soo small! Look really expensive too

MayorNaze Sun 12-Dec-10 17:38:07

nah they have gone

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:38:16

love these too but sold out

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:40:15

mayor just looking now, they have some good ones!

panettoinydog Sun 12-Dec-10 17:44:30

I love the autograph shoe boots, they are so ridiuclously comfy for things so high. And I now couldn't face paying any more than those prices since they are pretty damn good.

I don't understand why you don't just go up a size?

SlowComfortableShrew Sun 12-Dec-10 17:47:57

I have these and they are uber comfortable and look great with skirts and trousers

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:51:06

pan because I am an 8!!

ruddynorah Sun 12-Dec-10 17:51:39

I bought but returned those fur cuff autograph ones. Very comfy but gaped at the ankle at the back.

CybillLiberty Sun 12-Dec-10 17:51:57

slow looking for something a bit dressier but I have a pair very similar to that from <ahem> bhs last year

MayorNaze Sun 12-Dec-10 17:54:21

too much shoe, not enough boot??
