I don't normally do black footwear but feel I need a pair of black ankle boots to go with my khaki jeans and cords, brown looks wrong with them. I don't want to spend too much (£50 max). I was thinking either the topshop mighty
or clarks melanie jane
or anything else? Don't mind suede and would prefer a small heel to flat.

Definitely Topshop Mighty. I got them last week and they're great - go brilliantly with skinny jeans

justasecond Mon 15-Oct-12 20:24:12

yes I am more swayed towards them but was worried about comfort factor clarks are likely to be more comfy, although I have never shopped in clarks before (for myself)

The Mighty are pretty comfy actually, admittedly Clarks might be more so, but I walked a long way in mine and they were fine. They come up a bit big so room for thickish socks

Bigwuss - yes the clarks ones are a bit too shiny, that was what put me off a bit too as well as not being sure how my jeans (Baxters and uniqlo cords) would sit on top as they are not a tapered skinny iyswim?

agree big - ive done a day shopping in london in the mightys - or ambush as they were last year

MaureenCognito Mon 15-Oct-12 22:03:11

the top shop ones a bit unzipped are ok - i wer baxters with them

I have the Mighty's. Pretty comfy - although maybe not if you have to walk miles.

the melanie jane are super comfy (got 'em for work) but i agree about the shine
mine are tan and less offensively blingy
i need a black pair too so will have a look at the mighties

I tried the Melanie janes and although i liked them I just couldn't get them to work with my jeans.

Oops, posted too early. Was about to ay get both and see what works best with your clothes.

Topshop Mighty, I have last years version (ambush) which were £75 angry and still wear them loads I think they're v comfy have done days shopping in them etc.

I've looked at both, too. The Topshop Mighty has the zip on the outside, which put me off, and the Clarks is very shiny in black and a bit wide over the top of the foot for me.

Is there a plain matt or suede black ankle boot that shape out there for me? Or should I just give up on black and wear the grey ones I already have...

I have Topshop Artreu Maureen mentioned and am v happy with them. Lower heel, so a bit more comfy, but not Clarksy either. Just noticed they have the zip outside though.

What about these?

QuinnFabray Tue 16-Oct-12 11:29:37

The Mighty's come up very very big. They weren't quite right for me, although I wear ankle boots with dresses rather than skinnies. I've ordered the Clarks ones and they should be arriving today. Will update later.

Abzs Tue 16-Oct-12 12:23:33

Hmm not the Artreu, but the website says why try and the Adios might just do it. Have to plan a trip to town.

Abzs Tue 16-Oct-12 12:24:09

website actually says "why not try"

QuinnFabray Tue 16-Oct-12 16:06:21

Okay, I've tried the Clarks Melanie's on. I like them, and I don't mind the shinyness, but like I said, I'm wearing them with skirts and dresses and not jeans.
