Short biker boots - please point out the error of my ways

I'm looking for some biker books, but want them to be ankle length, without too much heel (as I'll be wearing them in all weathers on the school walk).

But I can't find my perfect pair. They are either too clumpy and welly like, or have too many studs and eighties accessories.

However, I think I like this pair.

Please tell me what you think - or feel free to point me in the right direction.

I like the ones you linked to. Have you seen the ones in Gap? They are a very popular boot (shudders at use of singular...but can't think what else to put) and sell very quickly usually. They have them again this year, having had major sales with them the last 2 winters.

I have a pair similar to the Peacocks ones - bought from Faith 2 years ago but they had them again last year.....not sure about this year. They cost £50 which was all I wanted to pay as I wasn't sure about them. However, they are probably the pair of boots I wear most throughout the winter.

You won't regret buying a pair - they add a very funky edge to an otherwise so-so outfit on the days when you really can't be faffed with "style"

I love the first pair,however the second pair look like workmans boots.

Pip - I really like the pair you've linked to! They are very cool!

The Peacocks ones look cheap and clumpy.

biker boots are by definition clumpy and welly like, surely?

cocolepew Thu 24-Sep-09 08:03:39

The first ones are lovely!

I want a pair envy

mwff Thu 24-Sep-09 08:05:17

if you happened to be a size 5 and didn't mind brown you could do a lot worse than these

fishie Thu 24-Sep-09 08:05:33

i've got gap in grey. here i think they are black and brown this year

DillyTantay Thu 24-Sep-09 08:44:43

I cant imagine wearing them
they would be too clompy for my skinny legs i think
do you wear socks schwooshed down inside hte flappy bit?

DillyTantay Thu 24-Sep-09 08:51:30

those first ones are VILE

I got these blighters from Aldo the other day. I love them. The leather is lovely and soft, and I like a little bit of clump.

fishie Thu 24-Sep-09 08:59:11

no they aren't clompy at all and i have teeny legs - the boots aren't all that wide so no need for socks etc.

mind you i need something fairly solid to balance out larger top half.

Botbot Thu 24-Sep-09 09:00:27

The girl in the shop was telling me how she'd wear them with denim 'treggings'. I didn't like to point out that I am 38 (and last wore biker boots with ripped tights and a nightdress in the early 90s).

DillyTantay Thu 24-Sep-09 09:22:03

ah the aldo ones are swoontastic.
well done.

noddyholder Thu 24-Sep-09 09:28:32

noddyholder Thu 24-Sep-09 09:36:26 boots9/2398233-1-eng-GB/biker-boots_mode_large_qualite_uk.jpg This is a nice look for this year the boots look good on slim legs with a dress

vacalocachachacha Thu 24-Sep-09 10:17:29

I really like the ones you linked to.

brimfull Thu 24-Sep-09 10:29:16

brimfull Thu 24-Sep-09 10:31:32

DillyTantay Thu 24-Sep-09 10:50:12

DillyTantay Thu 24-Sep-09 10:50:45
