Would have to see the woman and the outfit.

Su Pollard?

No but it not an age thing. They are awful sorry.

Lordfrontpaw Mon 17-Feb-20 20:58:35

I don’t think anyone should wear them - sorry but they are butt ugly.

In other words “Is a middle aged woman allowed to choose her own shoes or is she, by reason of having lived a certain number of years, suddenly too stupid to be allowed such choice?”

I can confirm that I am not Su Pollard grin

I'd wear them because I like them!

Not really grin

A middle aged woman could. But a middle aged woman shouldn’t.

Nor should young women, old women, fat women, brunette women, educated women, hungry women, hairy women, loud women. Basically, any women.

ShirleyPhallus Mon 17-Feb-20 21:01:32

They’re clearance for a reason grin

I've got the black ones. They are the ones I wear with dresses when I'm dressing up as an adult.
PS I'm 40 btw

SpottyShoeBow Mon 17-Feb-20 21:02:11

Gosh. You're a tough crowd. Have I posted in AIBU by mistake? grin

Not my personal taste OP, but if you like them why should age be a factor? Wear what you like and feel good in!

Shenanagins Mon 17-Feb-20 21:02:47

I think it all depends on your style as if done with the right look could be ok but the wrong look and you will look like a trying too hard middle age woman.

MrsGrindah Mon 17-Feb-20 21:03:33

They are horrible. But I’m not wearing them so knock yourself out!

SpeedofaSloth Mon 17-Feb-20 21:03:34

Yes. I like them, OP!

SpottyShoeBow Mon 17-Feb-20 21:03:45

I adore the black ones. My name is a tribute. They come with both black and spotty bows I believe. They are on my list.. Though obvs now I am slightly worried about that grin

You can wear whatever you feel like. They're not my cuppa tea but they might look fab on you. Enjoy rocking them.

Lordfrontpaw Mon 17-Feb-20 21:05:34

It’s a no (and I usually have rather ‘out there’ taste in shoes and even I’m not tempted).

AvocadoAdvocate Mon 17-Feb-20 21:06:22

Oh dear.

TARSCOUT Mon 17-Feb-20 21:06:49

Not my taste but if that's your style then yes you can wear them. I'm always envious of those with confidence to wear things out the norm. Still don't agree with older woman having long hair but that's a whole different post 🤣🤣🤣
