I want some of these summer boots. Trouble is, my feet'd be wet through most of the time, living where I do. I suppose I could wear them as slippers.

I do not need them!

They would suit you. I especially like the blue ones.

Synonymous Sat 28-May-16 21:26:09

They are certainly airy but I think the tassels would drive me nuts. If you have any pets I think they would think you are providing a fun game for them!grin

NanSue Sat 28-May-16 21:36:17

Possibly the ugliest boots I have ever seen!

Ana Sat 28-May-16 21:40:47

I like them too, although possibly a bit too flat for me (not vanity, I just can't walk in flats). You could always cut the tassels off if they were causing a problem, Synonymous.

Bags I know you are younger than me, but at our age one does not have to 'need' something one likes, to buy it.
They would suit you. Get the yellow ones sunshine

Buy them. Wear them. Enjoy them. Love them.

Tell us which colour you choose bags.

ninathenana Sat 28-May-16 22:27:29

If you like them have them.
Personally I find the concept of boots with holes in a bit daft.

jinglbellsfrocks Sat 28-May-16 22:32:56

'ave 'em. They'll go nice with yer summer frocks.

annodomini Sat 28-May-16 22:41:40

If the sun shone through them, you'd get spotty feet. grin

rubylady Sun 29-May-16 03:32:23

Treat yourself, go on, I dare you. grin

Humbertbear Sun 29-May-16 06:42:08

I bought a pair of beige suede summer boots from Primark. I think you should buy yours too

Jane10 Sun 29-May-16 06:46:36

Or plimsolls? grin

Humbertbear Sun 29-May-16 06:47:06

Just want to add that they are totally impractical but I couldn't resist and I am going to wear them with denim summer frock. Just need to find a Country and Western festival!

Bellasnana Sun 29-May-16 07:32:47

The blue ones are gorgeous! Bit pricey, but you only live once - treat yourself smile

Neversaydie Sun 29-May-16 09:27:24

Sorry but I think they are hideous. And why would you wear boots in susummer But each to their own .If you like them go for it

Nelliemoser Sun 29-May-16 09:35:55

We get so little summer why put your feet in hot boots?
My mind used to boggle about those souls clumping about in summer in UGG boots. They would certainly be too warm and seemed to have no support about the ankle.
You can tell I am not shoe mad can't you.

bigburd Sun 29-May-16 09:41:29

Oh bags !!! I dont need them either ....but now that I have seen them I want them grin ... in blue and as I am sure they will go with all things denim and nice print summer dresses x yolo

harrysgran Sun 29-May-16 09:56:00

Gorgeous go on treat yourself be adventurous and go for the yellow.

chrissie13 Sun 29-May-16 09:57:28

I think the blue ones are lovely but, as you say, not very practical!

Shinyredcar Sun 29-May-16 10:21:19

Surely there must be someone else on here old enough to have had a pair of white lace knee-length boots to wear with your hot-pants?! Why start being practical now?

Dandibelle Sun 29-May-16 11:03:12

They look comfortable but not smart. A bit ugly like Uggs

Lona Sun 29-May-16 11:19:16

bags My first thought was "what has need got to do with it?" Janea said it first though!
Get them, you're a long time dead!

Jenty61 Sun 29-May-16 11:24:22

was thinking why on earth would anyone wear boots in the summer! then on reading Shinyredcars post I remembered I used to wear white cowboy boots with tassles in the summer in the early 60s 😂
