To me they're nasty. But maybe they're fashionable the way mum jeans are?

I don't know.

Oo er definitely not for me I'm afraid

A bit odd looking - like winter shoes that the front's been cut off by mistake.

Fruitboxjury Sun 07-May-17 22:20:07

Personally I don't like them, but then I never liked the cut out trend on clothing either and it's an extension really isn't it. I think with the right outfit you could make them look funky. They might not last long though as will probably date quite quickly as I'm hoping cold shoulder tops will too

Posted too soon, meant to say I have very small fit so look different on me, a bit less 'scoopy'

I've been after a pair like this for a while, the ones I covet have a much higher higher heel, which I can't do.

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:33:53

That's a general 'no' then!

SwearyBerry Sun 07-May-17 22:37:00

I like them. Prefer the other colours to the black though

Orangebird69 Sun 07-May-17 22:37:49

Horrid. Very dated.

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:39:22

They have very similar styles in the current season, so I can't work out why they are 'dated' but I know what you mean....

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:40:59

Oh and they are supremely comfy, fit like s glove....blush

I saw a young, trendy colleague wearing these last week. I'm afraid I thought they were hideous so it wouldn't matter to me how fashionable they are. They also seem really impractical - too clunky for hot weather but the cutouts make them unsuitable to wear with socks in cold weather.

They remind me of styles from the 1990s. It's the heavy heel I think. I don't think I'm quite ready for a 90s revival. But those who are younger and more fashionable than me won't have those issues as they wont remember those styles from the first time around.

SunshineDeLaSoul Sun 07-May-17 22:42:22

Very ugly IMO.

PosyBoo Sun 07-May-17 22:42:29

I love them!!! I too have been looking at similar for a couple of summers now! I personally would wear them with a super pretty floral dress and leather jacket! But I realise my taste is my own and some people think it's blooming awful grin

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:44:03

I was thinking pleated midi, slouchy sweater and leather or bomber....

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:44:35

I think I've either lost my mojo, or getting experimental.....

PosyBoo Sun 07-May-17 22:45:29

See to me that sounds like the kind of outfit I'd see and think it was gorgeous OhWell!!!

OhWellNeverMindEh Sun 07-May-17 22:45:39

I am known for my good fashion and style sense....I think it's gone to my head....grin

PosyBoo Sun 07-May-17 22:47:51

I'd go with experimental!! And why the hell not?!!! Honestly whatever you decide to wear it won't be to everyone's taste so just own it and enjoy!!

DameSquashalot Mon 08-May-17 16:46:10

I think they're frumpy, but the young fashionistas at work seem to like them...

OhWellNeverMindEh Mon 08-May-17 17:06:30

I got them today and I really like them, I have very small feet and they look great with skinnies,

The leather is soooo soft.

Thanks for all the opinions, I rarely go against the majority but I'm feeling rebellious smile

MargotLovedTom1 Mon 08-May-17 17:14:36

I reeeeally wanted these ones but they were way over budget (nearly 100 quid).

OhWellNeverMindEh Mon 08-May-17 17:27:25

I think the heel height makes them less frumpy, but I can't do heels.
