So my other boot thread didn't go well, so sorry if people are fed up with boots.. blush

Anyway I've always thought fur trimmed boots were a little 'old lady' but what do people think of these

Need them for smartish workplace (teacher) and need this length for tucking skinny trousers into.

Opinions please!

I have a pair of Morrell walking boots that are very similar and cost £185!! They aren't granny ish (and I am indeed a granny at 45!!)

It's all in the way you wear th I think.

Haggisfish Sun 11-Sep-16 20:33:36

I don't think they will look granhyish as you describe.

No they aren't at all

I like them.

No, not at all - love them smile (I'm 47 and hope not to be a granny for another 20 years at least!)

No idea if they are granny-ish, but I don't like them, sorry. I think it's the wedge heel, plus the length that I dislike, rather than the furry bits.

I think they're frumpy sorry. Definitely won't look good with skinny jeans tucked in and that wedge sole is just yuck.

they are not granny boots but they are mum boots, sorry

get some Fly

I am 50 and wouldn't wear them as they look a bit old fashioned!

cheeseandmarmite15 Sun 11-Sep-16 20:55:14

Do you like these

Grown up but not too frumpy?

SirChenjin Sun 11-Sep-16 20:57:57

Fly are over-priced mum boots with a label that makes them OK to the wearer grin

AnyFucker Sun 11-Sep-16 20:59:30

ha ! They look much cooler than that teak monstrosity in the op...

SirChenjin Sun 11-Sep-16 21:01:27

Not often you see Fly and cooler in the same sentence - and there's very good over-priced mum-boot reason for that!

AnyFucker Sun 11-Sep-16 21:01:53

you think the boots in the op are better, Sir ?

AnyFucker Sun 11-Sep-16 21:02:17

it's all relative, ya know wink

SirChenjin Sun 11-Sep-16 21:03:08

Hell yeah grin

cheeseandmarmite15 Sun 11-Sep-16 21:04:03

To be fair a pair of Dunlop wellies wwouls look better than the ones the op posted!

They're not the most hideous things I've ever seen. But they're not stylish and they won't look good with jeans tucked in.
