WDYR to these beauties? To be worn with leggings and jumper dresses.

Not keen. A bit Richard III.

Hmm, come to think of it...
Anyone else? It's these or Bearpaws unless I get any better inspiration grin.

I like them. grin at 'a bit Richard the Third' - accessorise them with a humped back and a limp. But I do like them. Blowfish sizes are small though, I've got blowfish boots which are size 8 and still pinching my toes (I'm normally 7).

very 1982

arse, peggoty, I have big huge feet.

the hunt continues <exit stage left>

I'm a bit meh about them. I had some very similar, calf length though and wore them to death a couple of years ago.

But they aren't setting me alight...

I bought those shoes blush but I would mention that the lining wore away really quickly and the material underneath isn't very comfortable so if that hasn't put you off I would get inner soles.

Nagoo Thu 08-Sep-11 20:23:19

oh and the last pair of blowfish I got from TK MAxx disintegrated after a short stroll to the corner shop sad

blueemerald Thu 08-Sep-11 20:23:49

But I did find the 5 (my normal size) a perfect fit...

GiraffesHaveMoreFun Thu 08-Sep-11 20:59:57

Right, how about these non-Richard 3 ones or with a heel.

I have long, brown boots already, so would black be more practical? (to be worn with my new uniform of dresses and leggings).

GiraffesHaveMoreFun Thu 08-Sep-11 21:51:25

A shameless bump before bedtime.

Think it's time for a namechange - far too many S&B indecisive threads started by this giraffe!!

mythical Thu 08-Sep-11 22:29:29

ohh! love the ones with the small heel smile

moondog Thu 08-Sep-11 22:37:12

<guffaw> at Richard 3rd.
Not liking those sheepskin numbers. A bit Robin Hood.

Now if you clever lassies could find them with out the fur, in dark brown, flat or low heels and on offer - I'd be very interested.
Fur tops or lots of trimmings are hopeless if you have small feet (4s) they don't scale and the she's end up looking like they are too big.

You auditioning for Blackadder?


MrsPlesWearsAFez Fri 09-Sep-11 00:02:15

grin at Blackadder

GiraffesHaveMoreFun Fri 09-Sep-11 07:26:38

If I end up in uggs, I will blame you all for giving me shoe-based historical paranoia.

Nagoo Fri 09-Sep-11 07:38:55




I have too much time on my hands.... blush

MissBeehiving Fri 09-Sep-11 08:10:14

Feeling guilty of Richard III blush also come in black
