These, these or these?

Or feel free to share anything along the same lines, ideally leather, no black.

Cheers smile

Number 1 for me grin

They are all nice though.

2 look like a dried gonad
3 look like panto

mummybare Wed 03-Dec-14 20:20:32

Dried gonad is definitely NOT the look I'm going for grin

Thanks for your replies!

I like the first ones best, don't mind the second though they are a bit odd, really dislike the third. Next shoes always look really cheap.

mummybare Wed 03-Dec-14 21:27:03

Ok, so 1 are favourite - my only worry is that they might not work with jeans, which would be a problem as I'm on maternity leave and basically live in them...

How about these other options to be practical but avoid the dried scrotum look:

Four and five?

Or even six?

The only pair I like are 4. I really like them though.

1.They beat all the others by miles.You have very varied taste btw!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 03-Dec-14 21:44:07

4 would be my first choice followed by 5
I like 2 (not at all scrotummy wink )
Don't like wedge boots so 1 is out and 3 Eh? What The Jeff? Puss in Boots!

6 at a pinch.

tunaandcheesesandwich Wed 03-Dec-14 21:48:39

1 or 6

ParisWhenItSizzles Wed 03-Dec-14 21:49:57

1. By far the best. And I usually hate wedges as I think they look too chunky, but they are lovely, they look light, simple without being plain.

Possibly rethinks own planned boot purchase tomorrow...

Valsoldknickers Wed 03-Dec-14 21:51:23

Have been lusting over Tom's Desert Wedges myself so I vote for the first ones!

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 03-Dec-14 21:52:31

4 or 6

mummybare Wed 03-Dec-14 22:00:02

Thanks all. So those saying 1, would you wear them with jeans? Or just tights and dresses/skirts?

Twinklestein Wed 03-Dec-14 22:28:02

If you've got long legs you could tuck skinny jeans in, if you're a short arse like me they will make your legs look shorter. They'd look good with the new kick flares though.

Greengardenpixie Wed 03-Dec-14 22:37:24

I like the first ones only tbh.

ouryve Wed 03-Dec-14 22:43:24

Either of the first two. The Debenhams one looks a bit plasticky and cheap. Love the simple style of the first (even though I could never wear that heel) and the leather of the second one looks like I could sniff it for a long time.

ouryve Wed 03-Dec-14 22:44:06

Gosh - it seems I like sniffing dried gonads.

ouryve Wed 03-Dec-14 22:47:09

4 is safe and wearable, but wouldn't turn heads. Another one with nice lookng leather
5 would be marked by the slightest drop of rain, if it's actually leather, which is hard to tell by looking
6 is too short to flare like that and would look like wellies

polyhymnia Wed 03-Dec-14 23:00:18

4 and 1 are only ones I like at all and 1 is too high for my personal taste.

spritecat Wed 03-Dec-14 23:03:58

1 because they are a lovely shape.

simpson Wed 03-Dec-14 23:11:24

Really like 2.

SanityClause Wed 03-Dec-14 23:17:08

I like 5.

RonaldMcDonald Wed 03-Dec-14 23:43:53

def not 1

4 nice, though safe
5 ditto
