I just received my belated birthday present from my sister.

They look just like Clark's finest mumboots on mesad

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 12:52:41

No they're not.
I like 'em.
Anywat, don't diss Clarks.
They seel some groovy shoes these days

Ugly mum boots.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 30-Mar-13 12:54:12

I wear mine all the time. But I am a mum.

catinboots Sat 30-Mar-13 12:54:13

I feel bad but I think I'm going to have to eBay them

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 30-Mar-13 12:55:00

God take them back and get refund - you won't get the full value on ebay.

catinboots Sat 30-Mar-13 12:55:11

My thighs are to fat MrsCB

I need more boot on my lower leg to balance myself out

Unless I start wearing bootflares again

I'm afraid they do a look a little like mum boots, more expensive mum boots, however.

catinboots Sat 30-Mar-13 12:56:05

Don't know where sis got them from. Probably Selfridges but haven't got the receipt.

'I need more boot on my lower leg to balance myself out'
MNers are really on form today.
V funny comments all over the shop

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 30-Mar-13 12:59:06

I really hate the 'mum boots' thing - its just so silly.

If they don't suit you then of course don't keep them - honestly I haven't seen anyone wear them in RL who looked frumpy or mumsy in them. But then no-one I have seen included myself wears with too short bootcut jeans.

BrunellaPommelhorse Sat 30-Mar-13 13:00:53

i INVENTED mum boots and I think no, they are not.
the CLarks copies might be, mum boots need to be very high street

Maybe, op you are just Mumsy? wink and runs

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 13:00:59

Mum boots are Footglove M&S specials.
Worn with v clean and slightly faded bootcut jeans and a fleece.

JudithOfThePascha Sat 30-Mar-13 13:02:39

I've just googled them and yes, I'm afraid they do a little mum boot-ish.

BrunellaPommelhorse Sat 30-Mar-13 13:03:51

ah moony - there you are out
faded jeans back in BIG TIMEIO
i have just bought some baxters in a pale wash[330511|208527] voila!

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 13:04:28

This is a mum boot

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 13:05:57

Yes but Brunella they are bought like that.
Mum jeans are faded because they have been forced through the family wash and doused in Persil far too many times.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 30-Mar-13 13:05:59

Yeap just so mumsy

BrunellaPommelhorse Sat 30-Mar-13 13:06:14

perfect definition by moony

also biker boots were becoming a bit mumsy and brown leather knee boots with a white stuff skirt and button necklace

or those godawful fly things

BrunellaPommelhorse Sat 30-Mar-13 13:06:34

oh i see ( re jeans)

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 13:07:12

Mum fleece

Note to self: stop pissing about and do something useful

moondog Sat 30-Mar-13 13:09:00

Mum jeans

(Shoot me if still here talking crap by 1:15)

BrunellaPommelhorse Sat 30-Mar-13 13:11:25

HOWEVER a special circle of hell is reserved for you if you end up like @noddyholder;s mum who is of the Lulu/glamorous gran, persuasion and is all flicky hair, silver jewellery ( statement) and turned up collar.

I love hearing about her Mum as I often fear I am soon to BE her!

* btw "not my daughters" jeans belong in this category*

I'm afraid I do know a mum who does wear them, but then again she wears them with a Woolrich parker, ysl muse bag and rolled up trousers - this is on the school run! So yes, they are for mums too but only trendy ones. Having said that, if you cut off the tassel it would just look like every other mid heeled boot. Nothing special and a bit clumpy looking. There are Nicer boots out there for that price.
