Picked them up in black for £30 quid in the sale. They were marked up at £40, but because I couldn't make my mind up they said I could have them for £30. I'm thinking just for the school run, days out with DS etc. What do you think?

They look comfy and practical and warm! I have some in a similar style which I love for all those reasons.

I think they are awful looking sorry, but very sensible

I think they are great if you are over 70 YO.
They may look OK on though.
Do you want them for comfort and walking?
If so and you like them then go for it.
Seem very reasonably priced!

£30 is a good price for a pair of practical boots. I would probably wear them to death but according to MN I have no style.

I would wear them,I think they look nice.

Perfect school run boots! Lovely and warm and practical.

Oh dear, I did worry about the granny aspect. However the man in the shop told me that Rocket Dog boots are flying off the shelves at the moment, he didn't mention that it was people over 70 buying them! shock

I think I'll keep them then.

I own them - and I'm 28.

Actually, so does my friend...

They're not beautiful, but they're warm and practical and look fine.

I had a pair of beige Hush Puppies like that and they were the best things I've ever put on my feet.

I'm not a fan I'm afraid but they do look warm and comfy!

They are practical cold weather boots. I have a couple of pairs of snow boots and they serve their purpose when the weather is bad. They are fine I wouldn't return them.

I've had a pair of these for ages and I think they are great, I quite often wear them instead of my Kensington Uggs as the Uggs are so difficult to get on.

I had a pair too...they were quite small fitting so i had to size up. I found them extremely comfy, warm and looked great even though i had traipsed through the snow on the school run. I havent worn them in ages. Think they are at the back of my cupboard somewhere only because i have way too many.

They are fine for school runs and playing with the kids. Rocket dogs are really comfy and I know lots of young women who wear them. Very trendy and popular.

Rocket Dogs are horrible, sorry. They make me think of a teacher or social worker trying to look trendy. Usually teamed with coloured tights and a Fat Face wrap dress.
They do look warm and comfy though!

do they keep out rain and cold? Can you walk in them? Will they last?

in which case, they are fit for purpose. MN would have you wear fugly high heels and open toes throughout winter.

good buy.

Milllli Sat 07-Feb-15 12:59:37

Special I often wonder who wears those ugly open toe ankle boots .

specialsubject Sat 07-Feb-15 15:07:40

now you know!

amazes me that you can go into shops selling lots of shoes and NOTHING is wearable.
