Yes! Wore mine so much they've now worn out. Mine don't have buckles though. Not sure i could be arsed with the buckles.

If you are going to wear them a lot then yes. The cost per wear will get lower every time you wear them. They aren't my cup of tea and I would look ridiculous in them, but I'm sure you will look great.

My 14 year old dd would love them. I quite like them but not for me smile

If you wear the cheaper pair a lot then why not treat yourself to a good quality pair? I actually think they'd look great with skinny jeans, unless you have size 8+ feet I suppose.

cybboid Fri 24-Jun-11 16:08:50

Yes I do ahve size 8 feet so will resisit skinnies unlesss I ahve ruchie socks dans la winter to break up Max Wall legs

Havingkittens Fri 24-Jun-11 16:12:26

Ahhh, ok. No offense! (But I guess you beat me to it with the disclaimer anyway)

My mum has a metallic purple pair from Primark. Cost her £8, and seem to be doing quite well.

They'd look shit on me- short, big of arse and of feet- but look great on her, tall, small of arse and feet.

you know the drill

DilysPrice Fri 24-Jun-11 17:11:23

If you wear the Tesco knock offs all the time and if you can afford it <awaits summary banning from S&B threads, on grounds of tediousness, pleads recent Anglomania purchase in mitigation>
Then it's a no brainer. Also, they're great, v. tempted myself now.

largeginandtonic Fri 24-Jun-11 17:13:27

Very nice.

It's not like we are going to need bloody flip flops for the summer is it?!

noddyholder Fri 24-Jun-11 17:28:15
