Actually, I've just looked at the side view of the second pair and they look massive, so almost certainly no good for me. Also, I'm not sure about the heel - would need to see irl. I think they look as if they'd go with lots of different things though, if they work for you.
Thanks Remus, yes thought the calf looked a little big on the video, but don't think I'd have that problem. I've definitely got calves!!
I have had wedge boots a couple of years ago and I did like them but I wondered if the wedge on those looked a bit too high for everyday wear and also the pale(ish) colour wouldn't be hard wearing enough.
Tracyk it says on the website they stretch to the knee, I wouldn't have liked them otherwise. They are quite pale-ish though aren't they? Probably not very practical for wet/snowy weather. I'm talking myself out of them now!!
I bought the second pair last weekend and love them! So comfy and I think they look good with jeans over them, and under them and with skirts and dresses. Hoping to get loads of wear out of them this winter. They are def a bit darker in colour in rl though.
I've seen them both irl and prefer the second pair. Would have bought them in a heartbeat if my calves were bigger! The first pair was ok, but the colour is a bit weird and wouldn't go with much in my wardrobe. Would be lovely in a tan though.... Hth!
Thanks for all mixed opinions, I do like both pairs but am swaying more now towards the 2nd pair, mainly because of the colour of the first not being as practical and wouldn't go with as much. Though I am thinking I may order both pairs to see what they are like as I could always send a pair back (mmmm tried this tactic before and usually end up keeping them both!!!)
tethers, we said exactly the same about the names and the spelling.
The names are stupid this year, I went to Clarks intending to ask about the Norley Cedar boots and came out with Chorley Green for some reason, which caused confusion for the poor assistant schlepping through the book for me.
Bloody things aren't even out yet, so it was a wasted trip.
