Are these shoes nice or hideous??

I cannot tell blush


I've been eyeing them up since the beginning of the season, now they are reduced and I can still not decide whether they are quite cool (can Clarks shoes ever be cool?) or totally naff.

Help and guidance please!

Looks like a drag queen's eyelash on the front.

I wear clarkes. Not my style, but I think they are nice.

Wear what u want.

Even by Clark's standards they are vile. You could get something much nicer in the sales than that.

Somewhere in between, I'd say, but I find shoes hard to judge properly from pictures. I like the tasselly bits. Have you tried them on or would you be taking an internet punt?

Not nice. I do like some Clarks shoes, but not those.

They are good clunky shoes in the style of the 70's .. Only problem with fringes like that is that they go curly and tatty quicker than you might like.

The are good shoes though. Go well with Cos type clothing.

Oh my goodness, they're howlers shock

Okaaay, then, that helps focus the mind.

I may still need to go and see them in the flesh.

I am not sure what it is that draws me to them - I may require counselling.

Riverland, Cos is what I aspire to wearing grin

Yes wear what you want as long as it's not those

They remind me of something an Amish person would wear x

Alphonso Tue 09-Dec-14 22:32:11

Do Amish people wear high heels, then?

Put them on your feet and see what like look and feel like.

They look a good sturdy shoe with a nice and safe rubber sole and heal with deep grip - at least in the snow and ice you would have a chance of staying upright smile

Looks a bit like the built up shoe on the charity box girl outside chemists in the 70s.

I like clarkes but they're an eyesore.

SofaCanary Tue 09-Dec-14 23:17:10

grin @ HellKitty

Oh save us, no.

Cos shoes are okaaaay but their paper thin leather soles wear out in seconds. Try Camper in the sale.

TopazRocks Tue 09-Dec-14 23:27:53

I'd say - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! But make up your own mind - they are your feet, after all. grin

oh my I genuinely lol'd at those shoes. I love these threads grin

I am sorry but I hate those. They look like something Noddy Holder would have worn back in the seventies. sad

hideous clumpy shoes. That high heel will distort your walk and make you look awful too.

I'm still laughing at the charity box girl comment!
