Am looking for something similar - wondered if these are worth the money.

They are expensive but the last time I spent that sort of money on boots (Russell and Bromley) they lasted me three years. I had some Rocket Dog boots last year which are similar - they look really tatty and scuffed after only one winter's wear.

I bought them and sent them back. I wouldn't normally spend that much on boots so am waiting for the sale!

They are beautifully made and very solid, but rather wellie ish on me as i have thin calves.

They come up quite high as well, so right to the back of your knee iyswim/

Also no zip, which adds to the wellie feeling.

v nice though smile

John Lewis have a wonderful selection this year.

Interesting flllight.

I quite like the no-zip thing as zips always seem to wreck my tights! I have thin calves though.

Aren't biker-type boots supposed to be a bit wellyish anyway?

Am off to struggle through the clarks website.

I've got them.

I love them, they look nice with a knee length skirt.

And when my diet starts working, they may well look nice with some skinny jeans tucked in.

V comfy, which is unusual for Boden, and they don't go all watermarked in the wet, so they are practical.

I've just received them in green, but have sent them back. They are lovely but looked a bit wellyish - I didn't think they had enough detail on them and the top detail was hidden under skirts. Also not quite the right green to go with what I already have in my wardrobe. They were comfortable and solid but I also didn't like the fact they were pull ons. The search goes on...

They do look a bit like wellies, don't they?

I'm thinking of these: www.duoboots.com/products/boots/detail/calf_fitted_boots_boutique/macerata/24/colour/1/ or these
