Because they have got some SUPERB boots and I am afraid to admit I succumbed this morning blush

Being surrounded by legions of suppliant young surf dudes had NOTHING to do with it.

They are here

and apparently this style sells very well every time so get in there quick.

I found the 41 very wide and I am normally a 41/42, but the 40 was too short, so got 41s and will wear insole probably...

sadly no offers on them atm but you never know! Unless someone has a catalogue code etc? I have tempted you all I'm going to go and stare at them for a while grin

The brown is lovely, very purpley brown, I thought the purple might be too bright/young for old people like me. They didn't have any in the shop.

Oh and they have got pink padded lining!!! <swoooon>

They are gorgeous! And not horribly pricey, for leather boots... I am a boot addict blush, but haven't bought a new pair for a couple of years...<<tkb ponders when she can get to a fatface in the next few days>>

Ohh I know, that's thsoe AND the fly...I can't decide. However the fly are the first in years that have fitted my scrawny calves so have got to keep them, anyway they've been worn a lot already! These are a wider calf so good for over jeans or anyone not scrawny grin

I have Doc Martens like those.

Ooh can you link Fimbo? I knew they reminded me of something.

Mind you the pink lining has swung it for me totally. There is like a little white leather section right at the top, then pink stuff. I think I am turning into a boot fetishist.

these but black

They are very beautiful. And cheaper. envy

In fact I am thinking now that these might have to go back - just tried them again, and the foot is so wide, and my heel comes right up when I walk - it's weird as my toe hits the end, but the rest is too big. If an insole doesn't work it'll have to be thick socks or bust.

The fly are a great fit.

10% off code for Fat Face is AU9SIB.
Free delivery is AU9RT, but can't be used together.
Those boots are lush!

I like the purple but don't have anything suitable to wear with them.

Keep your flys.

Jumente Wed 16-Sep-09 10:10:23

Ooh thankyou! I am glad if someone else can use the code and get them. Especially if they have different shaped feet to mine!! I got some lovely hush puppies in TKMaxx the other day which are a big 42 as well, they were half price but have to go abck too.

Hope someone has an 8 in the cheapo fly black ones, that they will sell me...I think I need to stock up on those actually, they are a rare find!

I ordered some smile. Couldn't resist once I saw the 10% discount code (thank you dexter!). Am v. excited about them - just hope they fit my chunky calves!

Jumente, I've just bought the Fatface boots, and I LOVE them - so comfortable, and they look fab! Thanks for the link (and I haven't bankrupted dh!!).

Jumente Thu 17-Sep-09 13:41:34

Ooh brilliant smile

I just took mine back - but it's Ok as I love my mols.

I think I have the wrong shaped feet, or maybe they made the 8s particularly wide!

I tried them with trousers and tights and an insole - the insole helped but tbh they just did nothing for my legs, I like the mol as they are such a slim fit and make me look nicer!!!

Saw the purple ones today and they are also very pretty - much more subtle and dark than on the website.
