Are these boots nice? Or can you recommend nicer ones?

I'm about to buy these.

I've been after dark red/oxblood ankle boots for ages. I really like them but am concerned that the heel is maybe too chunky? Is the trend for clumpy boots out again rendering these passé?

In have up to £100 to spend. I want dark red boots with a heel.

I prefer a chunky heel especially in the winter as less likely to loose your footing if icy. I like these www.clarks.co.uk/p/26101010

Apologies for the horrific links!

NotTodaySatan Wed 19-Nov-14 13:07:52

Thanks Rum and izzy smile .

I like the Clarks ones apart from the serrated sole (is that the right word?). I think it looks really ugly.

I'm not keen on the Debenhams ones and the Gabor ones are really not my taste (in fact my Mum wears that brand and style).

Do you think the New Look ones are nice?

If you like them then what does it matter what other people think? By nature people have different tastes and what a boring world it would be if we all liked the same things. Have some confidence in yourself rather than strangers opinions.

NotTodaySatan Wed 19-Nov-14 13:11:58

I was looking for opinions and alternative suggestions before spending (what is to me) quite a lot of money chubby.

But thanks for your input.

Ooh cheers alfie.

The Gant ones are really fab but too expensive and I'd prefer red to brown.

Really like the Topshop ones though smile.

RumAppleGinger Wed 19-Nov-14 13:20:46

I do like the new look ones, but I would prefer something without the buckles. Definitely prefer the NL ones to the TS ones those.

Haroldplaystheharmonica Wed 19-Nov-14 13:49:36

Definitely the Clarks bookts, I don't like the New Look ones I'm afraid. Also �70! I didn't realise they sold anything that expensive!

If you like those TopShop ones, Missguided have THESE
I'm not liking the New Look ones sorry.

NotTodaySatan Wed 19-Nov-14 14:02:35

I've already discounted the Clarks ones Harold.

In defence of the NL ones they are actually made from leather. I was surprised grin .

Off to look for more options.

NotTodaySatan Wed 19-Nov-14 14:15:41

Result!

Have just bought these.

Not leather but for that price I don't care. Thanks for all the opinions thanks .

NotTodaySatan Wed 19-Nov-14 17:30:50

Well I like them grin grin

MyMeMy Wed 19-Nov-14 18:04:12

I like them too - good choice! grin
