Finally, I am down to two pairs of boots to decide between! These will be for casual wear (am ordering another pair for smart blush). I will be mainly wearing them with dresses and skirts, so which shall it be?

Bern

or

Pavia

Think I prefer the shape of the second but to be honest they are both fine. Why be embarassed about buying another pair tho'. 'Tis your money to spend as you like!

Difficult.

I prefer the style of the first ones but like knee-high better than mid-calf.

What length skirts do you usually wear?

2nd pair

I really like the second pair. The first pair is a little dull.

If Im honest, for the cost of them shock the pictures make them look very cheap and plastic-y (like something youd get in shoe-zone or similar).
Sorry smile

But the 2nd pair are better looking in general

2nd pair

I like the 2nd pair, not keen on the length of 1st pair- they possibly a bit "wellyish"?

pavia

Second look more expensive . I will be soon investing in a pair of Duos so will be interestd to see what you think. Are you skinny or chunky of calf? (I am obsessed)

CybilLiberty Sun 20-Sep-09 13:16:38

Bern would look better in tan

NoahDear Sun 20-Sep-09 13:17:11

ha
cubil
i thought htis WAS you
am in larndon in early oct so will be duoing myself

CybilLiberty Sun 20-Sep-09 13:18:24

I'm going to get my shaft measured next saturday. Did you see my rsoles on other thread

NoahDear Sun 20-Sep-09 13:18:48

no i didnt.
lol at shaft

CybilLiberty Sun 20-Sep-09 13:20:02

I would link but there's so many friggin boot trheads I've lost the plot

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sun 20-Sep-09 14:36:57

I'm leaning towards the 2nd pair as well.

Cybil I'm chunky of calf.

shock at Shoe Zone! grin

Will the knee highs look ok with skirts on and just below the knee? I don't wear skirts above the knee as I don't like my knees!

I really want a mid-calf pair, but you are all right the the Bern are really boring. I need a pair like the Pavia in a shorter length, and in a boot for a large calf. I do not think that such a boot exists.

Alibaba - I have a 46cm calf and just bought these. Although they don't look like the duo ones they are calf length.

I was also looking at these as well.

Those Henny James are lovely but they haven't got them in my size . I think I will e-mail and see if they have got anymore coming in.

PinkTulips Sun 20-Sep-09 15:32:10

not mad on either tbh but the second pair are definitely much better than the first

the henry james on the other hand are really lovely

cornsillk Sun 20-Sep-09 15:35:35

pavia best of the 2.
Henry james ones are best of all.
