what do you think?

i like some, not all, and am tempted by these in particular, although the other day they were £80 not £90 confused

just not sure i'd get a lot of wear out of them, for £90 shoes, i'd need to love them and wear them lots.

Love love love them , dd just splashed out on 2 pairs and they are fab smile

DaftSkunk Thu 30-Jan-14 11:12:10

I want to like them, but I can't. There a bit too clunky imo.

dexter73 Thu 30-Jan-14 11:14:10

I got quite excited when I got the email about it but unfortunately they are all minging.

Alwayscheerful Thu 30-Jan-14 11:15:36

They are lovely shoes but the popular sizes are sold out already.

minko Thu 30-Jan-14 11:47:26

Lovely??? They look a bit charity shop to me. I love OK usually...

Exactly the same as DaftSkunk, I so wanted to like them but I just don't. But, I was thinking of channeling the 70s this summer so these could work.

Ooh well I do like them (mostly)! Shame I am a) on shopping ban and b) have old-lady insoles for my decrepit feet so I wouldn't be able to wear them.

My Mums wedding shoes were not dissimilar to these she will be well chuffed she is back 'in'!

Wuxiapian Thu 30-Jan-14 12:03:48

I like OK, but would draw the line at that shoe collection.

Alwayscheerful Thu 30-Jan-14 12:05:49

I see where you are all coming from, not my style at all and I love OK do you think they look like shoe a the queen would wear?

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 30-Jan-14 12:07:11

They are a bit 60s and 70s and not in a good way.And really, £100 for Clark's?

Plumpcious Thu 30-Jan-14 12:14:28

Thanks for this post. I've succumbed and ordered a pair. As the shoes are home delivery only (ie can't try on before you buy) maybe the currently-out-of-stock sizes might come back into stock as people return them?

Double Nectar points for online purchases at Clarks until 31 January, if anyone's interested.

Too clunky, and the ones that areok just aren't high enough to remove the Hotter-shoes-esque look. The flats are alright, but I don't like the hole-punch shit going on there.

Nice to see something a bit different on the High Street though- I do like seeing people wearing interesting shoes, even if they're not my bag.

burnishedsilver Thu 30-Jan-14 13:06:41

Some of them are ok. Most of the are from the Brady Bunch wardrobe department.

burnishedsilver Thu 30-Jan-14 13:10:54

Can't you just picture them with these outfits?

Dontletthemgetyoudown Thu 30-Jan-14 13:22:53

I quite like the marie ones but they wouldn't match anything that I would normally wear, so I doubt if I would buy them. I do like orla kiely especially her leather handbags, a bit disappointed there isn't anything say tan leather with the punched holes in.

JohnCusacksWife Thu 30-Jan-14 13:41:35

Horrible, ugly shoes....

janmoomoo Thu 30-Jan-14 18:17:31

Normally love everything OK and also love Clarks but these are not nice. Agree they are bad 70's throwback. And £100 for a pair of sandals?? Plus Orla is on blinking everything these days, cars, mugs, towels, spectacles, uniqlo, you can't get away from her (she must be absolutely minted).

NorbertDentressangle Thu 30-Jan-14 18:20:49

No, quite hideous I'm afraid unless you have a fabulous vintage wardrobe to carry them off.

(and I like OK designs generally...she says wearing her OK scarf)

AndTwoBits Thu 30-Jan-14 18:23:30

Ugly clumpy kitch shoes. I would never buy these, they are totally not my style.

alltoomuchrightnow Thu 30-Jan-14 18:39:24

omg i want them. and I DO have a fab vintage wardrobe..and a long fringe and false lashes and and and ?!!!! oh yes big want. One problem, not working right now :-(

Financeprincess Thu 30-Jan-14 18:43:26

Didn't Mildred Roper wear these in 1976?

ItsATIARA Thu 30-Jan-14 18:47:06

I like them - I think they're Brady Bunch in a good way. I have a maxi denim dress I'd wear with them - but not at those prices. I'm hoping that everyone else is of the "ewwwwww, fugly" persuasion so I can get them dirt cheap in the next sale.

alltoomuchrightnow Thu 30-Jan-14 19:18:00
