I need some knee high boots.

casual enough to wear with jeans. but can be worn with a dress too.

preferably black. I'm a size 8 have wide ish feet so no narrow boots or spike heels.

slight heal ok buy no more than an inch or two.

Heel or wedge? Or would you really prefer flat?

Gileswithachainsaw Fri 26-Dec-14 20:49:56

preferably under 100 pounds.

I'd prefer a slight heel but wedge would be ok too.

preferably not completely flat

These are lovely, I've got the ankle boot version. They come in brown and black and wide fitting.

Gileswithachainsaw Fri 26-Dec-14 21:00:28

ooh black would be nice in those. did you get yours in store? I could actually try those on if they are in the shop.

how do they hold up/last?

How much shock

<sticks hand down side of sofa>

I did like the biker boots though. Just a little over budget sad

Have a look in Russell & Bromley, I saw they had some lovely pairs of boots. Hope you can find what you want.

I'd try the clarks sale. I've loved all the ones I've bought from there.

Gileswithachainsaw Fri 26-Dec-14 21:23:58

Well r&b definitely over my budget.

will check. out our clarks shop.

I had my Clarks Orinoco ankles for about three years till they started to fall apart. So I bought another pair. fgrin They're so comfortable, it's like wearing slippers.

Gileswithachainsaw Fri 26-Dec-14 22:57:55

They are definitely on the list!!! I'm assuming that the fact I can't select black. means they are out.

I can check. In store though so not a problem

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Fri 26-Dec-14 23:31:21

Good luck. They've been lovely boots for me, hope they are for you too. fsmile
