Are these boots ugly?

I can't decide. I'd probably be wearing them with chord or denim skirt and chunky knit tights.

And I'd be buying them in the dark brown colour.

Quite ugly and clumpy. Think it's the heel.

MoreGilmoreGirls Sat 09-Jan-16 19:58:07

Hmmm I am undecided too. Not something I would wear but not ugly.

SoWhite Sat 09-Jan-16 19:59:30

Yes they are.

The look like the final touch on a pirate costume.

Depends what for - perfect for clomping around the park in the rain, but not so much for work/pub.

They are ok but I prefer them in black to the dark brown.

ScarlettDarling Sat 09-Jan-16 20:00:02

I'm not mad on them but I do like them...quite piratey!

MissOnomer Sat 09-Jan-16 20:00:28

I like them blush

Madbengalmum Sat 09-Jan-16 20:00:33

sooperdooper Sat 09-Jan-16 20:01:32

I like them, for just day to day wear smile

ijustwannadance Sat 09-Jan-16 20:02:53

I like them too.

PreAdvent13610 Sat 09-Jan-16 20:04:38

I like them, and sensible for our weather.

Branleuse Sat 09-Jan-16 20:07:44

i think theyre nice winter boots

DickDewy Sat 09-Jan-16 20:09:37

They look quite nice for dog walking type stuff. I wouldn't wear them otherwise.

snowypenguin Sat 09-Jan-16 20:11:34

I like them.

TheMasterMurderedMargarita Sat 09-Jan-16 20:15:41

I like them.
They look practical, comfy and I think would work well with the outfit you describe or over leggings/ long top combo.

almondfinger Sat 09-Jan-16 20:26:15

I like them alot! For every day wear. You cant beat Merril for comfort if you do a lot of walking. I think they'd be fab with skinny jeans too.

revealall Sat 09-Jan-16 20:28:04

Boring and mumsy. Nice idea but don't look one thing or another.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sat 09-Jan-16 20:35:32

they are ugly, but that's no need to condemn them.

I think "oooh they look so comfy" is the worst thing to be said about a shoe.

MajesticSeaFlapFlap Sat 09-Jan-16 20:37:49

I really like them but just showed them to Dp who said 'arghhh matey I not be buying you pirate boots me hearty'

WickedWax Sat 09-Jan-16 20:46:36

Yes they are quite pirate-y now that you've pointed it out grin and yet strangely it still hasn't put me off them.

Still undecided, I think I'm going to buy them and try them on and then decide. They're not for wearing out anywhere nice. I've got skinny calves so suspect my legs may look like a twig in a bucket in them anyway.

readyforno2 Sat 09-Jan-16 20:52:02

I really like them!! If only it wasn't January and I wasn't skint angry
I like the dark brown

jn367502 Sat 09-Jan-16 21:07:34

Yes ugly and dated and expensive.
