Don't like them.

They would like like you had shoved your feet into a pair of Shar-Pei.

They look like the kind of thing you'd wear to a fancy dress party if you were robin hood

They would look good on a rhino.

Grin at look good on a rhino!

I quite like them OP but I'm not known to be stylish! Blowfish do a shorter version I think that are less rhino-like Smile

I don't like them. I think Blowfish is over rated tat!

Unless your legs are stupidly long, you'll look short and dumpy in them. Is short and dumpy the look you're going for?

I like them...but I do secretly long to be an actual pirate so you may not want to listen to my opinion...but I think being a bit piratey is rather cool Grin

A bit Friar Tuck if he was gay. And blind. And badly dressed.

I have a similar pair but a bit longer.

They make your legs look fat and are a bit elf from Lord of the Rings looking.

Ugly.

And I often like unusual footwear...

The buttons are like eyes that follow you round the room.

So you all think I should buy them immediately then? Grin

I wasn't sure - I kinda liked them in a "umm they're unusual" way but I imagined them to have the "jesus what was I thinking!" effect when they arrived.

Maybe they'd look good on a tall, skinny 14 year old. I'll keep looking!

Would look good on Claudia Schiffer. If you are Claudia Schiffer then sure, go for it.

I have the ankle ones, they are quite nice. Called Hobbit I think. They don't look as baggy as those ones.

I've often seen them quite cheap in TK Maxx if you do decide you want them. They are a bit middle-earth.

Love the fact that the shorter model is called Hobbit. That tells you all you need to know.
