I can't do very high heels, these are about as high as I can bear.

I want them to wear with skinny jeans/trousers and not sure if I like them or they're too mumsy. I'm late 40's if that's of interest.

OK i'm guessing the link would help ...

I am not keen on those ones. I was in Clarks today and bought these boots. I can't do high heels but these are very comfortable.

Mind you i am not sure i am the one to be giving advice on mum boots given i am 53 with two grown up daughters!

Oh I like them. I kind of wanted a slimmer heel though; I'm rubbish at this. grin

Yes, Wilbur, they are. You can do better than that.

WilburIsSomePig Sat 26-Sep-15 15:56:08

Anyone else have any suggestions? I don't want completely flat and not a block heel. Like searching for hen's teeth.

FWIW, I quite like the ones you linked to, Wilbur!

If you are buying at Clarks use the code BGR8 for 20% off.

It runs out at midnight on Sunday I think.

MitzyLeFroof Sat 26-Sep-15 16:15:57

I quite like the boots you linked to to be honest.

Good choice. Love a biker boot!

Vixxfacee Sat 26-Sep-15 16:46:15

I don't think they are mum boots.

WilburIsSomePig Sat 26-Sep-15 16:48:23

I bought the Ugg Gershwin boots last week and really like them but I want something with a slim (small) heel for my 'going out' boots! grin Everything I see seems to either have a block heel or have a fucking massive 5 inch heel that I just can't walk in.

I don't think they're mum boots but I'm not a mum.

cashewnutty Sat 26-Sep-15 17:06:44

I love those brown boots.

Almahart Sat 26-Sep-15 17:09:10

I quite like them too OP. Don't think they're particularly mumsy.

Oxfordblue Sat 26-Sep-15 17:32:14

I like them, of course they're not mum boots smile

Don't like the lace ups, they're like Victorian grandma's & I dobt like the clumpy biker boots either...

I would stop worrying about it - once flares are back, we'll all be in mum boots. It's the only way you can wear flares in the rain and not get soggy knees. Unless you like your flares short, Alexa Chung style.

Fixinggood Sat 26-Sep-15 18:11:29

What is a mum boot, just out of interest smile

I like the boots, not my style as I like clumpier but do like them.

Floisme Sat 26-Sep-15 18:13:26

I would say mum boots are just what we all wore in the 90s with our boot cuts until someone decreed they were Over.

These are nicer

WhatamessIgotinto Sat 26-Sep-15 18:43:20

Thanks all. Not keen on the last ones, I don't really like kitten heels and would like leather rather than suede. (But thanks!).

KnockMeDown Sat 26-Sep-15 18:43:21

I really like the ones cashew linked too, though I think they are more shoes than boots. These are also really nice.
