just that really - can you give your opinion on them?
Thanks!

This is still the only place I have ever known "mum boots" to be discussed confused

Elfontheedge Wed 06-Jan-16 13:16:00

Eurgh!

wickedlazy Wed 06-Jan-16 13:16:16

I couldn't wear them myself, because I have fat feet and they look quite narrow/ pointy toe boots always pinche me, but I think they're grand. Can't go far wrong with black leather and a basic silver zip? And heel looks like it would be easy to walk in.

I'm 23, so maybe it's when women hit a certain age they worry about "mum boots"?

Why Eurgh? What's wrong with them? Genuinely confused

Quickchangeup Wed 06-Jan-16 13:17:48

I really think it depends what you plan to wear them with!

ivejusthadacake Wed 06-Jan-16 13:22:55

i wouldnt call them mum boots. they would look nice with skinny jeans and a nice shirt/blouse.

Pinkvici22 Wed 06-Jan-16 13:24:33

to me, yes! My mum would definitely wear them (she's pretty stylish for 65 though!)

wickedlazy Wed 06-Jan-16 13:30:06

What about skinny jeans, a brightly coloured top and black leather jacket?

Queenbean Wed 06-Jan-16 13:30:55

Yes. Sorry smile

OneofTHOSEWomen Wed 06-Jan-16 13:33:58

Depends on how you wear them. They'll look pretty good with black skinnies cuffed above the boot.

NickiFury Wed 06-Jan-16 13:35:13

Yes.

Naicecuppatea Wed 06-Jan-16 13:37:25

I dunno, I think the pointy toe might just take them from mum boot territory.

megletthesecond Wed 06-Jan-16 13:37:39

I think so. Sorry.

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 06-Jan-16 13:40:45

The Kinks used to wear boots like that.

I think they'd look fine with the right outfit.

Paddingtonthebear Wed 06-Jan-16 13:42:07

I'm not sure. The heel might make them a bit mum boot, but the zip and pointy toe might take them away from mum boot territory. I wouldn't say they were frumpy.

Paddingtonthebear Wed 06-Jan-16 13:42:54

What's the opinion on these. Are they mum boots?

OneofTHOSEWomen Wed 06-Jan-16 13:46:01

Compared to the ones at the top, yes. The pointy toe and block heel make the top ones look a bit more "now" the Carvela ones are a bit more classic.

BumWad Wed 06-Jan-16 13:46:06

They're pretty ugly to be honest

BlairWaldorfLovesShopping Wed 06-Jan-16 14:03:17

I don't think either of them are mum boots confused Worn with the right outfit, they would both look fine.

DoubleDeClutchMuch Wed 06-Jan-16 14:25:27

thanks for feedback. I am 50 and wear them with black skinnies and long layered tops

yes I thought the pointy toe was the saving grace!

can anyone link to a pair of definitely NOT mumboots? does such a thing exist

burnishedsilver Wed 06-Jan-16 14:28:01

The first ones look fine to me. They'd be mum boots worn with bootlegs and a fleece but put them with something trendier and they'd look good.

The mum boot thing is less about the boot and more about how you wear them.

taybert Wed 06-Jan-16 14:30:54

I have yet to see a single pair of boots on here that someone, somewhere doesn't think are mum boots.

Lovelilies2 Wed 06-Jan-16 14:32:32

I'm a mum and I wear boots. Ugg boots shockgrin

wickedlazy Wed 06-Jan-16 14:35:59

I have a pair like this, wouldn't say they were mum boots?
