They are rubbish..

JonahTakalua Sat 16-Aug-08 18:37:57

it does look rather like that boot is trying to be all things to all women.

They look nice.

i would not be able to walk very far in such boots, but they would be good for work with some wool, lined trousers.

maidamess Sat 16-Aug-08 18:40:07

I reckon with tights and a jumper dress....

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 16-Aug-08 18:40:22


That is exactly what they are for, thought I better start taking this promotion seriously, everyone else is. grin

When I worked as a legal secretary, I lived in trouser suits in winter. I had 4 different winter ones, to mix and match.

I had about 8 different pairs of boots.

Sits back and waits for Cod to poll up and be rude...grin

Oh I just can't get on with these shoe-boot things. Is it a shoe? Is it a boot? Make your bloody mind up! Also they do nothing for us cankle-sufferers so really I'm just a bit envy

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 16-Aug-08 18:54:48

What in the name of all that is good and Holy is a cankle sufferer ?? grin

LetThemEatCake Sat 16-Aug-08 18:56:41

cankles = calves + ankles

as in, no definition btwn them

fishie Sat 16-Aug-08 18:59:33

i have skinny ankles and the shoeboot looks like hooves on me. yours are an acceptable version though, love they are called wag. i once had some shoes called vermin.

what is your promotion?

Flamesparrow Sat 16-Aug-08 19:01:19

lmao @ vermin!

I think I like them on other people, but not on me iyswim. You will look fabulous grin

I am PA to the MD. Which is an ideal job for me, stressy at times, but generally the sort of stress you can leave at the office.

Have been for about six months, but it still feels weird hearing myself introduced as David's PA.

So I thought it was time to start dressing the part look smarter. IYKWIM.

cod is on holiday


I think they're nice for accompanying trousers.
And they have twin elastic gussets.

Flamesparrow Sat 16-Aug-08 19:11:40

<shoe/boot (do they have a fancy name like a shoot?) novice> twin elasticated gusset??

picturing tights....

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 16-Aug-08 19:11:42

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

As soon as you saw the label Gabor, you should have stepped away.

Gabor = Old lady

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 16-Aug-08 19:16:30

NBG shock

I had no idea, but then I am old. So says DS. grin

CaptainFabioHiltsTheCoolerCat Sat 16-Aug-08 19:18:02

I don't know about Uncle F.
All I know is, I'm shut in the garage.
Staycation my arse mutter mutter pah! etc.


Nbg Sat 16-Aug-08 19:18:55


Not that I am calling you old!

<Nbg tries to climb out of the huge pit she has dug herself>

paolosgirl Sat 16-Aug-08 19:20:45

We wore these kind of shoe boot things a LOT in the eighties and early nineties - so you are being very trendy in a retro kind of way!

Just make sure that you do not team them with high waisted, front-pleated, narrow ankled trousers combined with a perm and shoulder pads. That is not a good look <shudders at the memory>

BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 16-Aug-08 19:25:53


That is very interesting, because I was drawn to some stripey shirts with white collars and big cuffs in M&S the other day. Maybe for once in my life, I am ahead of the posse. grin

Nbg Sat 16-Aug-08 19:27:08


shoe boots are stylish but these lack a few little details which I think are important to them looking stylish and not old lady like.

The front is too low, the visable elastic and the heel.

But but but, I think if you do the tights and jumper dress thing, you could pass them off.

Feel free to slap me grin
