why do they mostly seem to be for sale on fetish sites. I was googling with DS#2 and his mate sitting next to me eating their lunch. I had to stop hmm

Are they unspeakable naff or quite nice. And amd I too old. Flat btw as my poor aching tootsies can't do heels.

I think if you are stylish in the first instance they can work.

Personally not too keen. They look a bit pantomime-ish and fetishist to me.

Also, I wonder, how you actually bend your knees in them to sit down?

think they look awful.

very panto.

or like very full icing bags if your legs aren't like twigs.

I just bought these.

OrmIrian Fri 02-Oct-09 13:39:26

Very nice.

I'm afraid that they are a little out of my price range grin

No, I think they might be fine, on someone who is really into fashion - but they will be out of fashion by next year so why bother? They don't seem very practical either (I know I sound like my motherblush).

another pair they have quite a few different styles. So if you think they would suit you I would get them from the high street - then if they are out of fashion by spring you haven't spent a fortune.

i've just bought a suede pair with a mid triangle blocky heel from zara. they are tight on the let. they look fantastic. am going to wear them with leggings and long jumper dresses and purple tights and dresses and jeggings and i am very excited about them indeed. they are very comfy too.

No way - remind me of puss in boots, not in a good way

I love them and have just bought some after wanting them for years (flat). They are sooo comfy and easy to walk sit etc and I expect they will keep my legs lovely and warm in winter. Go for them.

And you are not too old. I am old.

DH wants me to get some too.
