I need some new brown or tan boots this winter.

I love Fly London mols but already have a black pair. I think I'm too old to be rocking the work boot look, so, what should I be buying?

ScarletLady01 Tue 30-Aug-11 16:04:17

I just bought these for myself...I know they're not for everyone but I LOVE them and they're so comfortable.

MillyR Tue 30-Aug-11 16:08:31

Does anyone have a picture of what Fly London Mols look like on? I can't work out how tight fitting they would be, or how hight they would be.

Ooh, I love that second pair Tether. Alas, I have v chunky calves otherwise I'd be ordering as we speak!

teahouse Tue 30-Aug-11 21:09:08

I love the second pair and these - after a dark brown pair of boots; anyone got anymore suggestions?

moondog Tue 30-Aug-11 21:13:54

Oi Tether

Any suggestions for nice high, elegant and comfy black boots?
I have gifted my mother with my superduper Hobbs pair after 3 winters (and thery still look great).

tethersend Tue 30-Aug-11 21:39:53

Well helloooo moondog smile

How the hell are you?

I know you like high on the heel; what sort of heel? Thin or thick? Wedge? Do you want knee/calf/ankle boots?

pinkhousesarebest Tue 30-Aug-11 22:41:54

I have ordered these I am hoping they are as good as they look, as this boot quest is knackering. I also love these

moondog Tue 30-Aug-11 22:48:58

That 2nd link lloks a bit S&M. Ride 'em cowgilr!

I have loads of lovely boots but the ice here last year was so bad sad
<is bit scared of falling>
so if this year is the same i will be modelling an attractive combo of ariat grasmere boots and those anti slip chains (best buy ever!) blush
All accessorised with slightly terrified bambi look on face

meltedchocolate Tue 30-Aug-11 23:08:23

Oo I love the topshop ones. Wonder what the calf circ is.

snowmummy Tue 30-Aug-11 23:10:45

So high boots over skinny jeans are still acceptable then?

I like some of the suggestions so thanks for the links.

tethersend Tue 30-Aug-11 23:14:51

Topshop boots usually quite narrow (much to my frustration).

moondog Tue 30-Aug-11 23:16:39

Thanks Tether, mate.
The ones I had were a bit like the Topshop pair but higher with skinnier heel and v cool elasic inserts all the way up. Perhaps I shouldn't have given them away...?

Like your links but a wee bit mumsy perhaps?

<not forgetting Gladiator Sandal Incident>

I have missed my Doc Martens Phoenix Jara boots so much over the summer so I have seized on the first bit of cool weather and had them on this week. I love them! They still look brand new this year too.

I can't do links on my phone. And to be fair, if you are after elegant they might not fit the bill. But did I say how much I LOVE them? Can you tell I've missed them!

brighthair Tue 30-Aug-11 23:24:23

These are my faves that I got last year. Found the last pair down from £150 to £35

DocDuck Tue 30-Aug-11 23:26:34

Does anybody know where I can get decent boots with a smallish heel (not flats)? I used to live in high heels but now not practical with a young baby. Still, spent my pregnancy fantasising about autumn boots purchase and would seriously love something that isn't completely flat and sensible!

Tortington Tue 30-Aug-11 23:36:29

last year £40

now sale got another pair

fab with skinnies

meltedchocolate Tue 30-Aug-11 23:38:28

"Topshop boots usually quite narrow (much to my frustration)." HURRAY! grin This maybe the boots for me then. 65 quid cheaper than DUO ones. Do Topshop boots last well?

tethersend Tue 30-Aug-11 23:41:51

Mumsy shock Why I never!


Do you want leather or suede, moondog?

Were your perfect boots these, BTW?

MittzyTheVixen Tue 30-Aug-11 23:43:14

Am I the only person that looks like the pantomime prince in skinnies and heeled boots?
I love the look and try it and then can't leave the house because I expect someone to start yelling 'it's behind youuuuuuuu!

Am a boot lover... so enjoying the boot porn even if I can't afford any at the moment!

darksideofthemooncup Tue 30-Aug-11 23:44:39

I have just bought some Frye Campus and I LOVE them so very much. Bloody expensive but without doubt the most comfortable boots I have ever worn.

moondog Wed 31-Aug-11 05:30:02

Nearly Tether! (Damn you are good. The heels were higher and a bit thinner and they have squared off toes with cap detail.

Doc, have you checked out Fly boots? They have fantastic rubbery heels. The wedges are tres comfy.
