I love these boots. Should I?

Am kinda blush to be admiring Sienna Miller, but I do like these boots

Am early 30s, size 10-12 (pear-shaped) and much given to skinny jeans and knitted dresses/tunics in the winter. Will these boots look silly?

If I could wear something like them, does anywhere sell a version that doesn't cost 300 quid?

Have a look at this week's Grazia-there is a page of boots in a similar style, and not all mega-bucks

I like them

LetThemEatCake Wed 02-Sep-09 19:22:03

i like them but I do think a longer boot is a good idea if you're at all pear-shaped

NoahFence Wed 02-Sep-09 19:22:47

River island has coem cool D M type ones

They may look a bit odd with tights? Gappy at ankle?

NoahFence Wed 02-Sep-09 19:26:42

sherby Wed 02-Sep-09 19:26:48

Sunday Times style had something about short boots like that.I like them.

tbh I think anyone over 20 might look like a magician in it, but I like the waistcoat one

They'r eok. Not very pizzazz

Different boots but I have just bought these, so comfortable, and can be worn under long skirts as well.

stillfrazzled Wed 02-Sep-09 19:56:43

Those are nice, shoshe, but I fancy something a bit more rugged.

Think I may invest in Grazia, and then wear proposed outfit to go shopping for them.

Next has something like them but without the studs.

I have ordered the first ones from Next.
Love Sienna Millers ones and these Next ones look exactly like them in real life but without the studs

stillfrazzled Wed 02-Sep-09 20:15:34

I can't make the Next links work! Can you tell me what pages of the boots section I should be looking on?

sherby Wed 02-Sep-09 20:18:03

Im wanting some over the knee ones, but have quite skinny legs so not 100% yes

sherby Wed 02-Sep-09 20:19:03

the flat ones not the heel ones

NoahFence Wed 02-Sep-09 20:19:05
