These boots aren't entirely hideous are they?

I am prepared to be corrected but I thought they would be good to go with shortish skirts or jeans. Well?

no they aren't hideous in the slightest.

they don't exactly knock ones socks off either

but they aren't ugly.

not ENTIRELY hideous.... but doesn't one like to aim a little higher than that when contemplating a style purchase??

Do you want the truth or the... truth?

I think they are awful! Sorry! Bit cheap looking.

They look a bit 80's to me.

I just don't like cowboy boots, sorry. Would definitely avoid wearing with a skirt, surely something knee-length would be more flattering?

They're ok, a bit boring. Mind you, you should see the kind of footwear I think is ok grin

Carmenere Fri 05-Sep-08 23:15:13

No you are of course right, they are almost hideous, not quite but almost, and that just isn't good enough <shame>

I don't like them.

Plus they are not very practical are they (pale coloured - rain streaked and grubby all too soon)

If they don't shine in your mind like a sparkling diamond then don't buy them

that suede/leather waterproofer is v. good though.

twinsetandpearls Fri 05-Sep-08 23:23:31

Dull and cheap looking.

Sorry I don't like them either, but if you're after cowboy ankle boots I saw a couple earlier when looking for someone else...




or perhaps?
