What do you think of these?

I really like them but am worried i'm going to look daft wearing them. At 33 am i too old?

Nice boots, buy them!

thank you - i like them - just hoping my fat calves will fit but thinking that the laces might make them adjustable.

I love them. I too have fat calves. These boots would make me happy, (as long as I could do them up). I am ignoring your 33 comment, which is ridic smile

I ignored the 33 part too!

I have found Joe browns stuff to be of such poor quality. For example. I bought a pair of jeans. The fit was horrendous. I am thin but it was tight in odd places, loose in odd places and after ONE wearing the front button ripped off the plastic feeling denim and left a huge hole! I wouldn't waste your money.

Nice boots smile

Btw you're not allowed to be too old at 33.

The only reason I wouldn't buy them is Joe Browns stuff tends to be pretty badly made and fall apart and I wouldn't risk it on boots.

Think you could get something better quality for your money.

x-post with mc, I really would look elsewhere.

"it's sought"

I can definitely see the appeal of the Principal Boy look but I'd have doubts about knee length plastic boots - hot and sticky I'd have thought so I wouldn't unless you can try them on.

I haven't tried any of their footwear but have also found Joe Browns clothes to be dreadful quality. I quite like the boots, what would you wear them with?

Cheaper on the Joe Browns website, and you're likely to find a discount code if you look grin

I've just hinted at DP for my birthday (next month, 30) you're definitely NOT too old!!

Oops, sorry blush

I think it would depend what you wore them with - I like the boots, but ont think that they are very versatile.

Have risked ordering - went for debenhams as it's free delivery and returns which if what's been said above is true then that will be better - will report back once here.
