Are these boots too 'mumsy'?

I like these, but don't want to look dowdy.

I mainly wear leggings, and tunic tops, and want an ankle boot that looks smartish, with a decent tread on them.

I don't like chelsea boots, even though they seem 'on trend' this year.

So if not these, what?

I quite like the look of these. Just not the price tag.

These are the ankle boot version of the above, but I don't think it's as nice, although infinitely better than the one in the OP. grin

OPeaches - get with the programme - Clarks have really upped their game recently and do some great footwear.

As I said earlier I really like most Clarks boots and don't think they're mumsy at all. Fly London on the other hand seem to be both mumsy and ugly, surely nobody's trying to achieve THAT look!

PS OP as I mentioned I have similar boots to those in my second link and have always found them comfy for walking, no burning balls of feet at all (I know exactly what you mean though!) I think it's because although they're high-ish they have soft bouncy insides and the chunky heel helps spread the weight rather than it all balancing on the balls of your feet. Hopefully this season's version would be just as comfy.

Using the 20% codes I have bought three pairs of clarks this season. I would never, ever, ever, ever have been seen dead in clarks but having seen a thread on here that mentioned them, I had a nosy and was very surprised to find that I liked a few of them.

The shoes in the OP are what I imagine Felixity Kendal wears. Inoffensive and comfortable.

The clarks ones I have bought are


I still have another two vouchers for 20% so will return to buy the Orinoco sash in the black and/or the brown, moonlit star in blue and this bag which is in the men's section but is lovely

Sunday I too got the mojito ones and nearly went for the more cowboy style too- we've got great taste smile

Love those Clarks National Sugar ones, just ordered them in black with the 20% discount.

Beth, the Clarks suede beauties I linked to also come in black leather but not clear when either style will actually be in stock confused
Did you manage to get to a Clarks shop to try on IRL?
