2017 seems to have lots of metallic boots love them but not sure the will love larger feet on over 40?

Hebenon Sun 24-Sep-17 21:11:03

YES! I want some. Also well over 40 but average feet.

I am well over 40 and have size 9 feet. I wear silver Cons and silver brogues. Ankle injury prevents me from wearing heels.

I love the silver Doc Martens that are out at the moment. I don't know how or what on earth i would wear them with but I really fancy getting a pair.

I tried on the silver / iridescenty Docs about 6 months ago and can't get them out of my head glitterball

I am mid forty 40s, and am bored out of ny mind with sensible shoes or stupid pointy toe high heeled shoes.

A block heel silver shoe or boot sounds great

Someone was wearing GLITTER boots at a party last night and they fab and I wondered why I am not wearing more like this, just stuck in the mud with style.

littlebillie Sun 24-Sep-17 21:22:23

Like these

littlebillie Sun 24-Sep-17 21:25:31

Or even these

I love the river island ones. Not to sound like your mum, but be careful about the amount of padding they have on the ball of the feet. I've had some cheap boots and they're agony after an hour

I have gold glitter ankle boots but they're cheap ones and they scratch my ankles. Always get (positive!) comments when I wear them. I also have gold glitter trainers.

I really want some silver shiny ankle boots.

Go for it!

I just nipped the Dr Marten site, they have some beautiful boots. I haven't worn them since my 20s, but don't know if I am brave enough to wear the unicorn boots, but love the white temperly boots they are very special

DeadButDelicious Sun 24-Sep-17 21:52:16

YES! I have some gold Chelsea boots that I just love. I am hankering to add a silver pair to my collection.

abigailgabble Sun 24-Sep-17 22:52:20

there were some v cool &other stories ones a couple of winters ago. did covet.

I find high beam too much for day to day, I love benefit girl meets pearl, subtle enough for every day and much easier to blend and apply.

Lucked Mon 25-Sep-17 00:09:32

Wrong thread.

slightlyglittermaned Mon 25-Sep-17 00:19:15

Saw the Dr Marten glittery boots the other day, but they're 95 quid. I never spend that much on shoes.

Will the shiny last if worn daily?

I've just got a pair of silver trainers I love them. They are surprisingly easy to wear. Don't need to tone down outfits or dress up to wear them.
I have a pair of silver knee high boots from circa 2000 but my calves are too big to fit in them

CalmanOnSpeeddial Mon 25-Sep-17 00:23:40

Hell Yes.
I've got some gorgeous pewter boots I bought a decade ago. The shape is a long way from fashionable (pointy with kitten heels) but what the hell, the first sighting of the words "new Metallics trend" in a headline has me sprinting to the cupboard to drag them out again.

EnidButton Mon 25-Sep-17 01:18:43

Buy them!

I'm thinking how nice they'll be in the darker afternoons and evenings sparkling in the streetlights. They'll cheer things up.

GemmaCollinsBabes Mon 25-Sep-17 01:20:34

I have silver chelsea boots and pink glitter boots, I rock them regularly.

BradleyPooper Mon 25-Sep-17 02:39:50

I bought these last year, they’re Sam Edelman, always get compliments. Have worn silver brogues all summer, would love some silver boots too.

mrslebon Mon 25-Sep-17 12:01:17

I've got these from Next

Really comfy and not too in your face glittery. I wear them with black skinnies to work with a blazer.

I bought dd the silver DM boots for her birthday and she is really disappointed by how quickly and easily they scuff. And you can't polish the scuffs out.
Would not have bought them at that price if we had known this.

Disabrie22 Mon 25-Sep-17 15:48:17

I love the Next silver boots - will be buying those!!!
