They're in my basket, I like them in the green/navy colour way.
I don't need them but I need them IYKWIM.

Please state honest opinions, ta.

If you like them get them. I don't. I think they're a bit "old" or something.

PacificDogwod Thu 21-Jul-16 16:32:10

Ah, ok, they may well appeal to me because of that: I am old grin

DramaAlpaca Thu 21-Jul-16 16:33:37

I'd wear them.

I am old too grin

VioletBam Thu 21-Jul-16 16:34:37

I'm old too! grin I'm just avoiding it.

PacificDogwod Thu 21-Jul-16 16:35:23

Yes, but would you wear them £60 worth, Drama?

Mine is not really a high-heel lifestyle. And my toes are not always in a presentable state…
I am talking myself out of it, aren't I? grin

Oh, Violet, I am in full-blown denial too, but things are starting to appeal to me that possibly would not have in the past… hmm

Could you seriously walk in them?

What's the refund policy?

OhNoNotMyBaby Thu 21-Jul-16 16:42:04

Way too high for me - unless you want them just for parties.

Not especially nice either. Sorry.

PacificDogwod Thu 21-Jul-16 16:43:43

I would hope to be sitting down decoratively in them.

I could walk in them - short distances.

Thank you all for strengthening my backbone.

For the record, I am sitting here with 5 year old Havaianas on my feet, that is more my style <hot>

Those bastard shoes are now coming up as an advert on my phone!!

VioletBam Thu 21-Jul-16 16:44:09

Dogwood don't talk to me about it! DH and I had a "middle aged day out" the other day and we were SO happy! grin We went for a drive!


A drive!

Then we found a nice antique shop to look around, then went for fish and chips.

God. I used to be a right raver....all night warehouse parties the lot!

They're the sort of shoes I would just have to see on. They might look absolutely stunning or absolutely like I have a surgical boot on, there's no telling! In principle, I like them!

DramaAlpaca Thu 21-Jul-16 16:45:38

Maybe not, Pacific.

I don't think I'd be able to walk in them actually, I don't usually wear high heels.

I still like them, though.

PacificDogwod Thu 21-Jul-16 16:48:12

Destiny, forget the stupid shoes: look at the Land's End sale!! Their kids' stuff is marvellous, their chinos/short are brilliant and in the sale fantastic quality for a reasonable expense.
Don't blame the bastard cookies smile

Violet, we have a caravan <wins middle-aged competition>

I've got about 50 pairs, I'm terrible for buying them! 😀😱

I really hate such high heels myself so I can't really judge but they don't look all that stylish.

cheeseandmarmite15 Thu 21-Jul-16 17:05:57

They look uncomfortable and sweaty with that big wide band but they are nice!

No. I think they are too high.
