Talk me out of buying these boots

(27 Posts)

They're ridiculous, impractical and I will break my ankle. But....oooh.... pretty

there gorgeous (sigh)

I want them. I never wear heels (already 5' 9") and I'm generally a comfort kind of woman. But, ooooh.....pretty......

pretty!i love heeled boots but dont know if i could drive in heels?

These are strutting boots. Or possibly dominatrix boots. I would just pose in them. But I won't because I am not going to buy them. No.

They are lovely. Buy them.

I have been known to buy things like this, not be able to walk in them, and then sell them on ebay....

I have some similar in grey from M&S (last year) I LOVE them.

do it grin

See, you're all missing the point. I need talking out of the boots. Sloggies has come the closest to giving a negative, but even then she appears to be saying that if I have difficulty walking in the pretty boots, I can flog them. So it all sounds a bit win win. Try harder. Tell me I'll look like an aging hooker in them. Or that my cankles will overfloweth.

No, the woman you sell them to on ebay will be a PITA, and you will wonder why you bothered.

OMG. They are vile. Disgusting. How will you do the school run in them? You won't be able to do up the zip (cankles) and they will be no good for your varicose veins. Be sensible and get a nice pair of comfy crocs instead.

I thought 'hooker' when I saw them, tbh.

An expensive one, mind. Perhaps one that, erm, 'specialises'? Is that the look you're after? grin

sloggies Wed 07-Sep-11 21:08:17

I do not consider myself medically qualified, therefore cannot comment on your real or imagined cankles.

That's better, ladies. More bile, please <chants 'I will be strong, I will be strong'>

Although...crocs, Dr? You go too far, madam <glove slap>

(I actually have fucking amazing legs, even if I do say so myself. Once we get arse ways and upwards it gets a bit more....interesting geology wise)

DON'T BUY THOSE BOOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Do, do buy them, they are fab grin)

Buy them they're pretty... if you can't walk in them, just wear them round the house?

Chickens angry Now listen here: Step away from the lovely boots. They will not be comfortable and you probably don't need them. You could spend that £112 on something much more appropriate. Like,

Ok. Kurt Geiger are not worth the money IME. I had a pair once and only wore them about 5 times before they completely fell apart.

Ok this was because the bloody puppy got hold of them after dd1 had borrowed them from my cupboard but still ...

blondiemermaid Wed 07-Sep-11 21:19:00

ive tried and tried but cant think of any reason why me you shouldnt buy them and trot about in them lil beauts. even the thought of just standing still as soooo couldnt walk in them doesnt put me off shouldnt put you off grin

Fuck it, I neeeeed them. Now, does anyone know if KG come up small size wise? I have humungous size 7 hooves, but would I need an 8? <chews lip>

blondiemermaid Wed 07-Sep-11 21:29:42

ive ordered a 6 blush thats what i normally am in KG and carvella if thats any help?

I'm sorry blondie. I have forced you to look at the pretty boots, and now you've had to buy them. I should have put a warning in the thread title <hangs head in shame>

blondiemermaid Wed 07-Sep-11 21:42:50
