I bought a fab pair of black leather riding boots from Doroty Perkins last week for £47. Tey still have them online but I think they're now back up to £80ish. They're really lovely and go with everything.

I've friends with Clark's boots that are lovely but I've never seen nice ones when I have looked.

They would probably survive a nuclear war.

I've not had any problems with the fly ones maybe I've been lucky.

I've had leather boots from Dot Perkins last me for 6 years in the past so I'm not so sure about the false economy theory.

Fly boots are often not waterproof (as in the soles have been known to let in water even in just ordinary wet conditions)

What about the dreaded Clarks? (I love them but they're not always very popular on S and B )

For 65 I find fly boots really durable,

Anything I buy in office or schuh on the cheap barely makes it through a winter though.m

Think mes ones are around 55.

You will be really struggling to find leather at that price.

Boots are an investment and really if you can save and go up to £150 then you will have something that lasts you for 3-4 years or more if you look after them.
Cheap footwear is a false economy.

I recommend Shoon - I got some fab boots recently there, they were £160 reduced to £49.99 !

The kurt Geiger shoeaholics site might be worth a look

Look on javari... Lots of fly have been greatly reduced but you can put your budget in so it only shoes boots in tht range. Fab site.

Office have a good sale on at the moment. Well worth a look.

Oxygen/ O2 are nice but start at about £75.00

I got some for 65 from Amazon last winter, sure my friend got some for about 50.

lolalotta Sat 01-Feb-14 22:07:26

I'm sure I won't find Fly for £50.00 sad

HaroldLloyd Sat 01-Feb-14 18:07:27

Holy grail of bootdom.

Following. Have been unsuccessfully looking for the exact same thing!

mamarun Sat 01-Feb-14 16:23:02

Looking for exactly that, something that can be worn with a sweater dresses, leggings and skinny jeans for this weather. Can be biker but not too gothic and ideally not costing more than £50. Is there anything out there that is of good quality. Any help appreciated.
