They're pricey enough and online and I know there's free shipping and returns but the hassle of sending them back....

Would love some opinions. Thanks.

I think they're nice but I personally wouldn't spend £160 on them. You can get very similar boots much cheaper than that, but of course if you have the money for them then it's ultimately your decision. They're nice, but not £160 nice xx

They're Mum boots!

Mum boots......

Bluntness100 Fri 22-Sep-17 13:27:14

I think they are really nice, very classic. They aren't mum boots at all, my daughter who is twenty has a similar pair she wears with skinny jeans and leggings.

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:28:03

Fuckit. Yeah they're maybe a bit boring. But mumboots ....shock
The Ultimate Mumsnet Putdown. Sob. My sensibilities have been sensibl-ised.

Well I suppose I did ask for opinions.

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:29:25

Oh x-post. Thanks Bluntness. Maybe all is not lost. Maybe I'm ahead of the curve for once. (Hardly but I live in hope)

A square toe is always an indicator of mum boot. They never look good

WeatherDependent Fri 22-Sep-17 13:31:43

No, but then I did like the M&S tapestry ones so maybe I'm not the best person to ask wink

I personally think they look boring but if you like them buy them!

New Look have a similar but less "mum boot" options for between £20 - £40 at the moment.

Laladog Fri 22-Sep-17 13:32:49

I agree with 27Harper. They're nice, but not worth £160 to be honest. You can get a very similar pair in New Look for about £40-50.

Lots of teens wear shoes like this on the regular, so I don't see how they're mum boots lol. They're very versatile and will go with a lot of outfits, both casual and formal x

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:33:41

I saw the toes and initially thought wtf. But then had an indepth (quick scout) on t'internet and it would seem maybe they are no longer mumboot. They are around.wink

Shall I show you osme others I've seen and earmarked? My sensibilities are able I think. I'm over the hurt.

dirtyprettything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:36:16

I like them, but I love acne pistols and splurged on them

These are nice and a lot less speedy

Apachepony Fri 22-Sep-17 13:36:55

Mum jeans are back in so mum boots probably are too. For my teenage dsd, it is skinnies that are passé and yet they are recommended on here all the time!

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:48:18

Topshop ones are nice but miles and miles too high for me.
Thanks for all the votes, I am breathing easier <dramatic>

Quite like these but a bit dated probably. Not mad about the heel

Topshop ones

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 13:52:02

&other stories have a few nice ones.

What about a sock boot? Last year I thought them hideous. This year not so much.

imjessie Fri 22-Sep-17 13:58:45

Nope , they are dull

LemonBreeland Fri 22-Sep-17 14:01:22

The sock boots are the nicest ones of all the ones you've posted. Don't like cut out ones and the others are mum boots.

PollyPerky Fri 22-Sep-17 15:01:10

Nope. Square toes, block heels, boring.
I'd not wear them and I'm late 50s.

PNGirl Fri 22-Sep-17 19:30:32

They're very on-trend! It's all in how you style them though. Worn with bootcut jeans, no, but with black skinnies and a drapey top like an AllSaints model, yes.

You can probably get some more reasonable ones from Dune or somewhere though.

CakeNinja Fri 22-Sep-17 19:36:24

Sorry, to me they are the very definition of mum boots blush - low clunky heel, square toe.

princessbear80 Fri 22-Sep-17 19:53:10

I've just seen fashion blogger @teecutter post a very similar H&M pair on Instagram. I like them!

RaininSummer Fri 22-Sep-17 19:53:18

Just look like ordinary work type boots but I wouldn't spend that much on them.

Ididnthearanything Fri 22-Sep-17 20:02:37

I was planning to wear with midi skirts and dresses, cropped kick flare trousers, skinnies.

Hmm seems we're divided. I must look up teeclutter.

I don't like kittens heels, or very pointy toe shoes, which seem to be all over the place ATM
