Do you have the Clarks wedge boots? What do you think of them?
My old faithful boots, that have seen me through everything since sometime in the last millennium, have finally bitten the dust. I am searching for the perfect pair to replace them, and wondering if these knee high, wedge heeled boots might be what I'm looking for. Does anyone have these? And if so, do they tick all the boxes?
My wish list is ... - smart casual! Smart enough for the office, yet casual enough for weekends - good soles, for the winter walk to school/work on icy pavements - look good with skirts/dresses and under trousers (I prefer flared/boot cut trousers to skinnies) - timeless and not obviously 2012, I hope they'll last almost as long as the ones they're replacing - not flat, but not high heels
Do these boots fit the bill? Or do you know of a pair that do? My old pair are, quite literally, big shoes to fill!
They were Ravel (do Ravel even exist anymore?), they have had the zips replaced over the years, but I definitely got my money's worth. But now the soles have split and they can't be replaced. They are a single wedge shaped piece of some sort of rubbery material (great for not slipping when it's icy), which is beyond my local cobblers . I do get through a lot of heels in my other shoes and boots, but these were magical!
I don't live near a Clarks, so think I'll try ordering online and see if they fit the bill. My feet aren't wide, so fingers crossed
Don't know about the boots but I have just bought a pair of Clark's wedge shoes for office wear and they are very comfortable and easy to walk on. (Flake Berry) p.s. there is a voucher code BEYOURS12 for 20% off current to the end of September.
I have four pairs of Clarks boots varying from 12m to 10yo. I love them all, they've all been completely comfortable, durable, practical and IMO plenty styling/fashionable enough! I like those brown ones.
