Spotted these in Clarks, tried them on and they fitted me well, were comfortable, and were the only boot that didn't look like a wellington on my skinny calves! Bit pricey but I'm sure there's a discount code somewhere out there.

BUT... are they the dreaded "mum boot"?? ink{\]]0}

These are Mum boots

They've even got 'matron' in the name.

They're more like bovver boots.

The discount code finished yesterday, sadly. I tried these on yesterday but, in the end went for the 'Orinoco spice' boot as it was a lot cheaper (45 with the voucher) and I have already bought other boots this winter so couldn't justify 100pounds. Also if I was going to spend that much I would buy doc martens I think.

I like the look of the Orinoco boots but they were too wide around the calf for me. I agree that these ones are quite expensive for Clarks, so if the discount no longer works then I'll just wait for the post Xmas sales.

Were they these Orinoco ones? they lace up like the ones in your op so fit all leg sizes (I have skinny legs and are fine)

Ah no, I was looking at the buckled Orinoco ones with the straps around the boot.
