I think this boot quest may become a saga...

I am just too fussy.

I have in mind black suede ankle boots with a wedge/platform, but- and here's the stickler- not too high.

These are close (thanks to whoever found them for me- sieve like memory, sorry), but I want more of a platform on the sole and less on the heel IYSWIM.

I need a size 8.

Feel free to read this, do this face hmm and click on a waterproof coat thread. God knows I would. However, if you can help at all, I would be most grateful.

I think NicksChick might have won!

topshop but not suede

Sorry nickschick (and everyone else), they're still not right sad

The carvela ones have too much at the heel and not enough on the sole

The Asos ones have a slightly better ratio, but are too high overall and are not suede

The peacocks ones have no platform at all, just wedge.

Thanks for looking though. I'll try and find a pic of some shoes with the height of sole I'm after...

grin yayyyy

nickschick Sat 01-Oct-11 14:07:55

withdraws yayyyy and slinks away defeated.

I think the topshop ones are the right sole width but theyre not as 'classy' looking.

tethersend Sat 01-Oct-11 14:11:35

Aw, sorry Nickschick...

Which are the topshop ones? Link goes to peacocks ones again...

Ok, these shoes are VILE, but have the right size/shaped sole I'm after. Here. The carvella ones would be perfect if the sole was shaped more like that.

You mean this shape? ..but without the laces.

try this page and see if there is anything on there that matches what you are after

It's quite hard finding platform/wedge soles - the search filter on that site didn't offer it as an option

tethersend Sat 01-Oct-11 14:17:51

HotBurrito, they would be perfect if they were black and had no laces.

tethersend Sat 01-Oct-11 14:19:13

Thanks ruby, but those are not what I'm after.

are these too high?

Ungratefulchild Sat 01-Oct-11 14:24:26 too high?

Topshop ones not bad at all, I could do those- if they were suede and not bloody plastic angry

Urban outfitters ones good ration, but too high...

Jill Sander ones too high...

I know. I hate myself.

tethersend Sat 01-Oct-11 14:29:21

Those zapata ones have the same sole as the carvela ones...

HotBurrito1 Sat 01-Oct-11 14:30:28

did someone link to these before?

Thumbwitch Sat 01-Oct-11 14:32:52
