Which option for just a day to day work shoe? Which are the least daggy?? For both knee length skirts and dresses and tight black jeans.
In the shop right now so have to choose in next five mins!
Thank you wise brains of MN!

I prefer the boots, not the lace ups!

I have a very similar pair of lace ups & I love them.

The top ones. I'm not sure the bottom ones will work with skirts/dresses.

Ok that's two votes for the boots (top) and one for lace ups... Any more votes? heads towards the tills...

Thank you for the quick replies, so helpful!

Top ones

I love those lace ups and I now want some.

Love the lace ups

Giving it five mins for a final tally...

I'm obsessed with what people wear on their feet for work when it's not sunny. I can't do proper heels and baffled by anyone who's not in agony. But this means I end up schlumping around in trainers or flat boots and when you're not the most slender or long-legged I worry I look really frumpy.

Lace ups. I've got blue ones and red ones very similar. Love them.

Although you'll be fine with either TBH

Lace ups definitely.

originalmavis Sat 05-Mar-16 14:50:38

Shoes are more comfy as they hold your feet more. Skirts don't look great with boots I think unless they are quite tight (cowboy boots with slirt or shorts look terrible to me!)

What shop are you in?

JemimapuddleducK02 Sat 05-Mar-16 14:52:03

Lace ups

LaurieFairyCake Sat 05-Mar-16 14:52:57

I think they're both really high/skinny for someone who can't do heels confused

Have you tried them on and can you walk in them?

SavoyCabbage Sat 05-Mar-16 14:53:40

Lace ups.

bopfactory Sat 05-Mar-16 14:54:22

The lace ups definitely! Which shop are you in?

BunnyTyler Sat 05-Mar-16 15:46:33

Lace ups.
The boots are bland.

StepAwayFromTheThesaurus Sat 05-Mar-16 15:49:34

I think the lace ups would work better with skirts than the boots.

MissMogwi Sat 05-Mar-16 16:00:30

I like both. Which shop are you in?

MuttonCadet Sat 05-Mar-16 16:18:09

Probably way too late, but lace ups

polyhymnia Sat 05-Mar-16 16:28:22

Can't really understand how either can be comfortable for someone who doesn't do heels.
Also don't know where you work but personally I wouldn't wear metallic plus v obvious heels for work - one or the other ( eg pewter brogues) - but not both at same time IMO, or risks looking a bit OTT.

Both are horrible!

Have to agree with Tate there. Sorry.
