I know these Clarks boots have been linked to a few times and they are a bargain in black here

oooh they look nice and I need a new pair of boots - I wish I hadn't deleted any Very offers they might have sent me!

Are they quite slim in the leg or chunky looking?

Wow fab bargain smile I have these on order from someone else for £65

If Very show stock do they definitely send them, or if I order will I get an email in a week saying they can't supply them?

culturevulture Thu 29-Sep-11 21:41:52

Sorry don't know the answers to either question.

bodiddly Thu 29-Sep-11 21:50:08

just checked and it says from £45.00 ... in a size 5 they are actually £75.00! shame!!

Sorry about that, I thought the tan were the more expensive ones and my size 6 in balck came up at £45

vanillagorilla Fri 30-Sep-11 15:16:31

the tan 6 came up at £75 for me? sad what are these like IRL? am tempted at £45...

Just paid full price for those in the black last weekangry Plus havent hardly worn them due to freakish weather!

HellonHeels Fri 30-Sep-11 16:00:54

Pink - buy new pair at cheaper price, return new ones for full price refund?

Kerching!

Ordered a black pair.....found a £5 voucher very sent me for my birthday (more than I got off DH but that's another story) so even more bargainous boots!!

vanillagorilla Fri 30-Sep-11 16:29:07

would hve preferred the tan though...

fergoose Fri 30-Sep-11 17:35:32

Mine have just arrived - they are lovely.

Thank you, thank you, thank you culturevulture! I tried these on this afternoon at Clarks and almost bought them for the full £80 but decided to wait. So glad as I've now ordered them instead. Well chuffed.

To the poster who asked about the fit, they are close fitting on the calf but I have large calves (around 40cm, I think) so may depend on your leg shape. No clue about Very's stock info but really hoping they deliver.

Mine were due to be delivered on Tuesday but they arrived today smile

My size 5 in black came up as £45. Just ordered them, so thanks for that. Have been on the lookout for boots for ages and baulk at paying £80 for them.

Just bought these...thanks to culturevulture. Fab bargain smile

Thehusbandsatcricketagain Sat 01-Oct-11 19:32:33

oh why did I have to look at this thread.........I want them now & my size in blk is £45 confused........I don't necessarily need them but they would be so handy as am no longer bothered by in trends but want somewhat fashionable & comfy

fedupofnamechanging Sat 01-Oct-11 20:59:20

I tried them on today at Clarks. They are definitely tight fitting on me (my calf measures 38cm and am shoe size 5), but they are leather so I'm hoping they'll stretch a bit.

mosaica Sat 01-Oct-11 21:33:30

I bought those in tan a while ago and they are really comfortable and lovely. They look a lot more expensive than £45, that's for sure!

vanillagorilla Sun 02-Oct-11 09:34:14

Mine had arrived yesterday and I hadn't realised - they had been thrown over the side gate and I think DS must have picked up the delivery card they left - found them this morning! Anyway, I love them, at the price I paid anyway. Have anyone of you sprayed them or are they ok if they get wet?

Thehusbandsatcricketagain Mon 03-Oct-11 18:46:01

ooohhh mine have arrived but they are currently hidden in the wardrobe as arrived here around 5ish via courier & do not want to explain to all ie dh & dd why they were essential confused

vanillagorilla Mon 03-Oct-11 19:21:52

mine in the wardrobe too!! box is too big to leave lying around.....

Gingefringe Tue 04-Oct-11 12:30:24

Such a shame. All black out of stock.

fedupofnamechanging Tue 04-Oct-11 20:07:10

Mine arrived today. It's my dd's birthday, but I got a present too smile. Am very happy with my bargain. Thanks again culturevulture.

dingdong3 Tue 04-Oct-11 20:56:15

Lol at everyone hiding them! I'm glad I'm not alone in my smuggling/secreting activity!! it's a blardy big box.

I'm happy about them at the price - v comfortable, lovely leather. A little gapey at the top but I think I can live with that. I may invest in some wellie socks to roll over the top for the colder weather - that would disguise the gap.

Thanks again to the OP!
