My teen boys think so grin

They are very comfortable and cool and I'm more than happy to wear them, but are they alone with their opinion?

They are not alone. smile

Apparently they won't go out with me wearing them.

Bonus grin

Ditto above.

No. I'd happily wear them, I might buy a pair.

I'm with AF I'm afraid

I go by comfort not style!

They're not exactly frumpy, but that style is favoured by the over-60s coach tripper. I'm guessing you're not wearing them for formal events and funerals though, and they do look very comfortable, so please yourself.

I have to agree with your kids, sorry.

ImperialBlether Fri 22-Jul-16 16:53:49

Sorry, but my response when ii saw them was to swear out loud.

By the way, I bumped into my friend, who's in her 40s, and her mum last week. My friend apologised to me for her mum's socks 'n' Crocs. Parents will never cease to be embarrassing grin

Pretty ugly I'm afraid, although I did see a lot of people wearing them on holiday....

Sorry I swore when I saw those shock

I love shoes, I have loads of really lovely non frumpy ones but I have been known to buy shoes that people raise their eyebrows at.

They are all bendy and airy!

Dear God!!!!

(sorry blush)

U2HasTheEdge Fri 22-Jul-16 17:00:35

It's ok, I don't mind grin

I will just be careful where I wear them.

paxillin Fri 22-Jul-16 17:00:37

Bloody hell, they are, erm, hopefully very comfy.

Oblomov16 Fri 22-Jul-16 17:00:43

Good god they are truely awful. Sorry.

MadisonMontgomery Fri 22-Jul-16 17:02:12

Wow. They are really, um, different.

GinAndOnIt Fri 22-Jul-16 17:03:47

Imperial grin grin

I'm afraid I'm with everyone else, but good on you for wearing what you want!

PacificDogwod Fri 22-Jul-16 17:07:11

They are fab!! They have gone over to The Ugly Side that have reappeared on the Really Very Cool Side - they just need some sleb to endorse them.
I want a pair grin

In fact I fingered a green/blue pair v similar to those on a Spanish market recently <classy bird>

NorbertDentressangle Fri 22-Jul-16 17:15:43

Heavens to Betsy they are bad (and I don't mean bad in a good , "down wid da kids" way either!)

WaitrosePigeon Fri 22-Jul-16 17:17:10

Well I quite like them!

NorbertDentressangle Fri 22-Jul-16 17:17:14

OMG - I've just clicked on the other colour option shock - they look like they've been woven from an assortment of shop carrier bags
