Planning to get these:

Anyone think they WON'T look right with skinny jeans - or straight leg ones??

Speak now or forever hold your peace!

Am separately agonising about which short boots to get which are wide enough for me to tuck straight legs as well as skinnies into, but that's another story ...

If you were a teenage boy riding your skateboard they woudl go with skinny jeans

Not sure what trews you COULD wear those with tbh

Or skirts

Do you HAVE to get the black ones?

Aaargh, I knew this was a minefield! Very far from being teenage, let alone a boy.

No, on black being essential - was thinking of the pewter leopard version actually:

But they'll be the same shape. Or is it the colour that's the problem??

What footwear do you think looks best of all with skinnies?

those leopard ones are better- the black ones too clunky looking

they would look good with boy friend style jeans

I personally think boots (of any length, bar over the knee) or heels look best with skinnies

I don't like heels so they're out (would prob. only contemplate them with a special occasion dress, and even then they'd be kittens).

Do like boots and am on hunt for perfect short pair which'll ideally accommodate straight legs as well as skinnies, on lines of these:


(IF my size ever comes back in!)

Don't I recall others favour Converse with skinnies???

prefer the first pair. have you seen their black biker boots?

yes Cons with skinnies can work but CAN make you look like youve got golf club legs

I prefer in summer with a bare brown ankle showing

Yes, summer is fine as I also like ballerinas.

Which Clarks black bikers?

twitter mate just got these

these have a look of Fryes about them

Liked the first ones, though heel could be sturdier - have ordered them into my local store to take a look. Others - Majorca Sun - not in my size online. Will keep a lookout for them.

With thanks to cyb, any more thoughts on what I might wear with my skinnies ... ?
