Mum boots?

tanfastic Mon 22-Oct-12 07:30:39

I'm 39. I think they are ok but wouldn't choose them. A bit boring but not sure if they'd be classed as a mum boot.

LexieSinclair Mon 22-Oct-12 07:31:10

They're lovely. Not Mum boots at all.

WipsGlitter Mon 22-Oct-12 07:39:11

I'm 42 and wouldn't wear them. Ugly colour and a non style - not a proper shoe boot nor an ankle boot.

I like the brown suede version but I am not so keen on the tan leather.

CharlotteBronteSaurus Mon 22-Oct-12 08:50:20

i've got them in brown
they work very well with skinnies
they were in the Grauniad style supplement last week, BTW

nasty nasty boots!

AND'll have that ridiculous sock on show look whenever you sit down or bend at the knees

The brown are ok but not keen on the tan.

Themilkybarisonme Mon 22-Oct-12 08:53:57

This one is very similar but I think has something more about it

I'm judging, and they aren't getting many points. Sorry. They are just a bit blah.

I have tried these on but there is just something not quite right about them. I think perhaps it is the curved bit at the top, it just needed to be a little longer or straight. If you want this colour,these are better I think

Don't like them, they somehow manage to look bland and a bit odd at the same time IMO.

I noticed these which I think are nicer.

cazza40 Mon 22-Oct-12 14:43:07

Yes they are mum boots - am sure you can get much nicer ones for that price. TBH find Clarks a bit mumsy in general

Something a bit Katie Holmes about them-they remind me of that tan suede pair she was stapled to.


MissPerception Mon 22-Oct-12 15:01:17

Haha, Queenie is right; Katie Holmes boots.

Madmog Mon 22-Oct-12 15:03:08

Personally I'm not into tan myself, so would only look at these if the tan is dark or I was after a black pair. Regarding style, I'm 45 and like them, so would certainly try them on if looking for a pair.

NerdAmigo Mon 22-Oct-12 18:40:11

I was going to wear them with tights <sniffs>

I looked at those Nerd but there's something just not quite right with them.

I bought these instead but they tan, not brown. That photo is really dodgy.

I really like these too

ChablisLover Mon 22-Oct-12 20:51:17

I have them but in the dark brown suede.

I like them. Toyed with the idea of the black ones but someone on here said they were v shiny and can't be doing that.

So I got the tan ones, and they are very nice, actually, just what I was looking for.
