Help please - are these nice? And how to wear them.
HA @ geography teacher But no, I hunk they're cute, I love shoes like that. Love wearing high tops with skinny jeans..I'm especially partial to wearing slouchy leg warmer over them with my skinny jeans or leggings/tights.
Like them . I see they're Ecco but they remind me of Ash Virgins which I have. Slightly prefer Ash personally as they seem to fit my feet, but those will definitely look good with all the things mentioned.
Yeah, I know they used to be a bit 80s (leg warmers) but I love wearing them in the fall with leggings/skinny jeans/tights all slouchy and comfy. I knit mine, or I can get them at practically any clothes store, or footwear shop. I have different all different lengths too. I'd like to try knee socks but I'm afraid they'd look too school-girl ?
I bought them too and now think they were a mistake. What you can’t see in the photo is that they have a dip/notch at the back of the ankle that I find weird. They are really really comfy but I just don’t like them. I’m also not keen on the colour as they are a metallic grey and I would find a normal grey easier to style. With the skinnies and roll up look what do you do with your socks?
Well I'm wearing them today and so far so good. I like the notch at the back Snog I think it makes them easier to move in. Also they are a greeny sludgy colour which seems to go with lots of things.
I like footsie socks and I seem to have loads that I can't wear with trainers having been told by Mumsnet it's a MAJOR style sin to have visible socks when wearing trainers. So the socks get worn too. Win win.
