Are these nice or horrible?

I can't decide? Looking for black (they need to be black) ankle boots, and I came across these and can't decide whether they're cool or whether they'll make me look ridiculous: www.marksandspencer.com/block-heel-side-zip-lace-up-ankle-boots/p/p60120577

Thoughts?! Alternative suggestions? I probably don't want to spend more than £60, but would go up to £80 for something I really loved.

Hate the lace ups. Primark have same style without laces and they are £16. I have a pair and many have complemented me on them.

Oh I like the lace-ups! Without them surely they'd be completely standard plain black ankle boots? Which is fine, but there are a million places I could get them!

Oh I love those!

I absolutely love them!

I like them but would not pay that price as they are textile not suede.

I think they are lovely actually. If I needed new boots I’d buy them. Really nice and feminine without being overly so.

The laces are awful imho. Will date them very quickly.

They look like something Bellatrix LeStrange wears.

Oh, I should have mentioned this, too - I don't buy leather!

I see that they are indeed divisive, which at least makes me feel justified in my indecision - I'm glad that not everyone has instantly hated them and questioned my sanity, as I feared!

You will never get consensus on mn about boots. If you like them get them

I had a pair exactly like that in 1993.. Happy days. (Misses point of thread entirely.......). I like them.

Yes, they are quite 90s, aren't they? I'm 30, so I'm unsure about the 90s revival, as I think it's the first time that I might be subject to the 'if you wore it the first time round...' rule!

BitOutOfPractice Wed 01-Nov-17 11:22:57

I was about to say that I think they look a bit dated

mintich Wed 01-Nov-17 11:37:23

I like them!

LisaSimpsonsbff Wed 01-Nov-17 12:08:47

Well, I've bought them! Will update when they arrive on Saturday and let you know what I think in person!

They're a take on the Chloe Harper lace-ups, so not a random 90s throwback. I like them!

Didiusfalco Wed 01-Nov-17 12:48:20

I love them! I don’t think I would wear them as they’re not my style but if they were I would buy. Especially as you don’t want leather.

Queenofthedrivensnow Wed 01-Nov-17 12:49:35

I like them they are cool

titsbumfannythelot Wed 01-Nov-17 13:02:03

They’re a bit too Mary Poppins for me.

Hoppinggreen Wed 01-Nov-17 13:04:31

Bit Victorian prostitute but I quite like them

nothingwittyhere Wed 01-Nov-17 13:06:58

They're cool and surely you can swap out the laces for something different if you like?

RubbishMantra Wed 01-Nov-17 13:30:40

I like them! V. Laurence Dacade!

Hmm bit too fancy dress for me, like a Goth Mary Poppins.
