Bought these today. Think I really like them but I don't think I trust my judgment any more. Thinking of wearing them with jeans at the weekend and with dresses at work. They're really comfy which sadly is one of my main priorities these days at the ripe old age of 42. Can I get opinions?

My friend has these - they look good with jeans . I like them!

I like the way they look but I find Dune shoes uncomfortable. Maybe my foot is the wrong shape!

I like them!

I have some very similar boots from Timberland, which I bought about 2 winters ago. I was similarly unsure, but I love them, they go with everything and I wear them all the time, with dress for work and jeans for play. I am even more ancient than you at 45 wink

I like them. Dune shoes don't fit me for some reason. A shame, as I often like stuff in there.

They're from Dunnes, rather than Dune I think?

Ah. Sorry - saw Dune in earlier post. Silly me! They are v nice. Somebody will come on soon and say 'Mum boots' probably. Fuck em.

I like them. I have a very similar pair and they look great (in my opinion) with jeans. I am not a fashion guru though and consider myself being more of a safe/classic dresser than a truly stylish person.

Yes, they're from Dunnes Stores rather than Dune. And Remus, that's exactly my fear!

Who cares, though? You like them!

I like them. Can't beat a bit of Dunnes Stores better value 😁

Dunnes Boutique.

Ah Maudlinmaud that makes me feel like I'm home. grin

Love the boots Op. For 50 quid they're a steal.

Aye nice. But don't think the quality of dunes shoes will last long-they didn't for me but good health to enjoy smile

To be honest I don't like the gold/brass zip...but I never wear gold jewellery only silver. Other than that they're fine.

Maudlinmaud Tue 04-Oct-16 21:25:17

Aww the tays wet for ya Arse
Do you not have dunnes over there?

ephemeralfairy Tue 04-Oct-16 22:05:02

I like. Versatile innit?

clumsyduck Tue 04-Oct-16 22:06:59

I like

Ach Maudlinmaud I live in the arse-end of nowhere and a trip into the big smoke doesn't happen that often. 'Tis really only 20 miles away and may chance it tomorrow. Though it'll be your fault if I buy the shop out. At least that's what I'll tell DH. grin

Really like these! Tempted myself!

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Fri 07-Oct-16 06:50:51

I think they're lovely and don't fit the description of what I understand to be mum boots. And leather for €60? You can't go wrong!

ClarenceTheAngel Fri 07-Oct-16 07:11:06

What ARE Mum boots? They are v nice OP.

FunkinEll Fri 07-Oct-16 07:20:39

I like them and they're a great price for leather! I'd get them. I didn't know we could buy Dunnes over here.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Fri 07-Oct-16 07:24:32

My understanding of mum boots is that they are usually black leather 2 inch block heels worn under boot cut jeans (which are just a tad too short).

A staple of Mumsnet threads, much like naice ham!
