Yay or nay?*

I think they have a definite whiff of mum about them.

I don't get the big thing about mum boots, what's wrong with boots looking like something a mother would wear? confused

I just take it to mean frumpy. A bit like "mom jeans".

As for those, I have to say they may be a little mum-boot-ish. Difficult to say why.

They just look like fairly standard black ankle boots to me.

They're OK. I don't like them but they're OK

On me they would look frumpy - something about the way they are cut at the ankle
On someone younger who dresses more quirkily (DD 24) I think they could be pulled off

I don't like them, sorry. The gold zip looks really cheap. Are they plastic too?

I'd say given your post on here you're not sure about them. Trust your instincts and I'd suggest not spending money on anything you don't absolutely love.

Yes, they are mum boots. Don't get involved with them.
