I want to treat myself to a pair of boots for the winter but hav'nt got a clue what to buy, would like them to be flat or flat(ish) ,black (or maybe brown) and calf length (top of calf). Also need to be able to buy in a 5.5.
Have a look at Oxygen Shoes website, they have a great sale on at the moment.. they are struggling financially I think and have a few sample boots going really cheap, I bought 2 pairs for £60.. They aren't everyone's cup of tea, being a bit chunky but see what you think! Sandals are very comfy too and have a birkenstock style footbed.. The bloke said he'd rather sell them to individual purchasers who love their shoes ( me) than sell them to TKMaxx who will mark up prices hugely.. I like that idea..
I am seriously considering some Mel rubber boots for when the snow comes. Currently I have att pair of Asda wellies but they have no heel and the Mel boots do and the Mel boots are ankle boots. Last year I unsucessfully qued for wellies twice and wasnt prepared to pay the inflatted prices that some places that did have them in were selling them for. I am currently waiting for Debenhams or another retailer to have a promo on in order to seriously consider them.
DJAngel - what are the sizes like on Oxygen? I can see a couple I like - but it says on their sizing guide that a 41 is an 8.5 - every other shop in the uk would say a 41 is a 7. And are they narrow on the calf on the longer styles??
Sorry not been on today.. I'm a size 4 or maybe 5 usually but am 37 with oxygen shoes.. They are similar to birkenstock sizing if that helps.. Boots came today and 37 boots fit fine.. few scratches on the sample boots but at £28/£33 a go can't complain.. and top of boots seem quite roomy.. My calves aren't skinny or huge and they seem fine, with room for a pair if woolly tights or skinny jeans.. tel no is 0208 9934374.. hth..
hee hee - just ordered Volga in the lilac and Danube in the brown. They should add a decent search facility on the boots page ie - what is in stock of each colour by a specific size rather than trawling in and out of each style.
