I like them very much grin

Love em

They're very average and unremarkable

Dowser Mon 23-Nov-15 08:26:15

If you like them go for them. Granted I can only see a pic the size of a postage stamp and they don't exactly get my pulse racing but hey, you like them.

gBean Mon 23-Nov-15 08:29:18

Mum boots.

Bunbaker Mon 23-Nov-15 08:29:28

I like them, but not in brown.

Bunbaker Mon 23-Nov-15 08:29:38

Was that really necessary gBean?

lavendersun Mon 23-Nov-15 08:31:47

I really like them.

gBean Mon 23-Nov-15 08:33:22

Title asked for opinions, that's my opinion. We all have different tastes.

BrendaandEddie Mon 23-Nov-15 08:36:25

I agree with the bean. Don't ask if you can't hack it man

Higge Mon 23-Nov-15 09:03:04

If you like them buy them. Not my style.

IHaveBrilloHair Mon 23-Nov-15 09:05:33

They're ok.

FrancesOldhamKelsey Mon 23-Nov-15 09:07:40

I have a very similar pair - but bought them a few years back - I think they're a bit over now. Regardless of fashion, it's all about the fit with this type of boot. Are they the perfect fit for your calfs (calves?)?

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Mon 23-Nov-15 09:11:02

I'd love them if they were forty quid.

Didiusfalco Mon 23-Nov-15 09:17:52

I like them. Theyre fairly classic arent they? <clueless>

sooperdooper Mon 23-Nov-15 09:18:56

They're ok, inoffensive, but I prefer something with a heel

Bunbaker Mon 23-Nov-15 09:35:33

I don't find heels comfortable. I tend to stride quickly rather than walk daintily, making heels rather impractical and uncomfortable. And as boots are outdoor wear for me they need to be practical rather than pretty.

LoadsaBlusher Mon 23-Nov-15 09:37:39

Very plain.
Not to my taste at all .

m0therofdragons Mon 23-Nov-15 16:29:13

I was after classic and I don't want heels when running round after dc. Yes I'm a mum so happy to wear "mum boots" - better than whore boots grin
Puzzled where you get £45 boots from - presumably they'd last a few wears where as my last boots were joules and 6 years on are still good.

I usually buy my "mum" boots (commonly known as 'boots' in real life) from ecco in the sale. I am thinking about these - but would prefer brown as my brown boots are more tired looking than my black ones.

I am so over riding boots, they've been in so long.

lavendersun Mon 23-Nov-15 17:59:05

Really are they not the in thing? Dear me, never mind, I have never been particularly fashionable. Comfortable and waterproof gets my vote.

lorelei9 Mon 23-Nov-15 18:05:39

I think they are lovely and also a good price.

sadly I'm a short arse, so can't wear this kind of thing - those knee boots are not set up for short legs. (I had Duo in the past but they didn't last well considering how much I paid).

will you buy them OP? It's also hard to get the right shade of brown, this looks just right.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Mon 23-Nov-15 18:17:49

I like those boots lavender but agree I would prefer them in brown.

I like the boots m0ther linked to too.
