just got these delivered.

They fit, they are lined, feel good. The style is new to me - are they okay?

Or will everyone point at them and say they are mummy boots, and how dare I wear them as I only have two dc. grin

Well I like them! Disclaimer: I am also a mummy of two DCs grin

I don't think they are Mummy boots - they are a bit plain but not offensive IYSWIM

I agree, they are mummy boots but they ain't offensive! As long as your bootcut jeans stay in the wardrobe wink

smile but my bootcut jeans flap around high on my ankles and then come the mummy ankle boots. Perfect , isn't it?wink.

Love "plain but not offensive". That just about sounds up my lack of style. I think I shall have that inscribed on my tombstone.

But seriously, thanks for the comments.

Any ideas for less mumsy ones for the wide footed? I did the plain chelsea boot first time round and not sure I can bring myself to re-live those days...

Sorry flowers

I don't think they are. "Mum" boots have a bit of a heel.
These are ok but they'd be 100% nicer in brown.

I wasn't offended bonhomme. I thought it was funny.

Brown? The brown ones are delicate suede and I thought I would scuff them too quickly. Might reconsider...

I like them. They give a nod to the current biker boot trend.

I don't think they are, but it depends what you wear them with.

If you wear them with skinny black jeans then they're ok I think.

chelsea boots would be less mumsy.
