I need some nice knee length black boots to wear with dresses, denim skirt etc and don't know what to buy. Want to look fashionable and pretty but not a fashion victim. Am 39 and need flat ones for park and school run etc.
What do you think of riding boots? Seen any nice ones?

Are these nice or frumpy?

I love the riding boots you linked too. they could be worn with everything, except maybe a bikini,

MB - I am looking for something similar. But my legs seem to be rather long from the ankle to knee and calf length boots look too short on me. Would really like longer boots - almost to knee but can never find any.

Thanks M - the Frye ones are nice and so are teh Duo ones ton that thread. Different sort of look. Hmm. NOt sure what I really need. Think these might be too girly for a denim skirt?

Platypussy, what shoe size are you? have you tried Long Tall Sally? They have got the most beautiful riding boots in there, they come in black, brown or tan, there was a thread a while back about them. Then one by me moaning because they only do from size seven up and I am a six. Gorgeous though. Am off to bed so can't do a link but they are called Lela.

U2b - I am a size 5. Thanks for the info - will look Long tall sally up.

platypussy Sun 07-Sep-08 23:33:37

Oh sorry - just saw that they only do a 7 upwards! Will keep looking then!

Probably no good for you either then, shame. I love them so much I am thinking of getting insoles to try and pad my feet out a bit!

I posted these on another boot thread here. They are the flat boots I most desire this season. I think the dark grey is a nice change from black and works just as well with my wardrobe.

I got these in black patent, they are so comfy and they look fantastic.

Would have been useful if I'd added the link
