Are these boots a bit "AbFab"?!!
25

Thinkaboutthebubbles · 04/08/2022 20:33

I don't know why I am drawn to them... I was looking for some sensible black ankle boots.
Would be to wear with black jumper dress and tights in the winter. Are they ugly?!

Cool? No! Um, not sure what to say except I can't imagine them going with many outfits, but yeah if you'll wear them then buy them.

They remind me of Eddie completely but that's a good thing!

Fabulous, sweetie darling!

They’re hideous but they look so comfy! I reckon you could style it out with the right attitude.

I have some tent slippers which look similar (but not boots, obviously) and I have repurposed them to wear around the house because they are so snug.

Tent slippers?

Tent slippers!

They’re for camping mainly, so you can take off boots etc but not be barefoot in the tent. Mine are now my pottering in and out of the garden slippers.

I had some of those when I was a student in the 80's. They were very comfy. Mine were black.

Sensible's overrated IMO, OP - they are brilliant!

Some agreement on the ugly but good!

I really thought I'd start dressing like a grown up by this age but I think I'll get them.

Those slippers look like a great contribution to keeping fuel bills lower next winter@QueenOfWeeds . Very cosy.

They might look cool if you're tall and slim. They'd look frumpy and dumpy on me.Grin

They look perfectly sensible in terms of warmth and a thick sole to keep you out of puddles.

The tent slippers beat the boots for being simultaneously sensible and bonkers.

Do they have in black? Where are they from?

They do have them in black, I just had a look. On ASOS.
Unfortunately there are some very negative reviews for the black boots listing. There weren't any reviews for the green boots.
Shame because I've ordered them already!

Black would look too much just like snow boots from Millets or the like. Which are excellent footwear if there's several inches of snow on the ground.

Moon boots! Are they coming back? I had a lovely red pair as a child in the early 80’s. They were lovely and warm!

They are like moon boots aren't they! I was far too sensible a child to wear moon boots.

They’re horrific and appealing in equal measure. I think I’d actually order them if I were you. Glad you have!
