I neither know nor care about mum boots but they look just like my favourite Carvella ones that I've been trying to replace for two years. Thanks op - never thought of White Stuff. Now If they have them in grey I might have to come over and kiss you.
I have a similar pair from Clarks which I've had for a couple of years. I nearly sent them to the charity shop last year but I've worn them loads so far this winter and am loving them again.
Out of curiosity - what does 'mum boots' actually mean? Genuine question - I've seen the phrase on here a few times and I get that it's not meant to be a compliment but what are the features of a 'mum boot'??
I ordered these, but I think they're going back. They Are really stiff and uncomfortable around the ankle. They potentially will give with wear, but if they don't I'll be stuck with them as I won't be able to return them anymore
I also ordered the Gemma boots they have in the sale. Left foot fits, right boot slips around all over the place I didn't think my feet were that different in size!
Mum boots are usually found in Clarks or M&S Footglove - they are generally brown, slight point to the toe and have a small heel.Some posters on MN take a very dim view of them and their wearers - as if any of us care.
I like them, I would wear them . I don't really know how one would define 'mum boots.' I just buy what I like. I don't think it really matters how something you wear would be perceived by another person. It should be what you feel Comfortable wearing.
