A couple of old boots, from River Island

old-bootsCall me crazy (Trust me, I’ve been called worse), but if I was going to spend £64.99 on a new pair of boots, I probably wouldn’t want them to look like this. Because these… these look a bit like the kind of thing you might find dumped out in the woods somewhere. (Well, you would if you lived where I do. Bad neighbourhood, what can I say.)

Fair enough, though, I’m probably not part of the target market for these boots, being a dedicated high-heel wearer, and totally incapable of pulling off that whole androgynous/Agyness Deyn/menswear-inspired look. Not even a little bit. So, if I tried to wear these, I’d feel like I’d gone back in time to the 1900s, and was off to work down the pit.

But that’s just me. And I’m sure there are lots of you out there who could rock these in style. Those of you can buy them for £64.99 from River Island. If the rest of you can just bear with me, I’ll have some pretty, girlie shoes for you to look at shortly…


  • *lol* ‘dumped in the woods’ is exactly what I’d think if I saw these shoes. No thanks! At least DMs are nice and shiny.

  • Call me crazy, but I’d probably wear the black ones if they magically appeared in my closet. I’m not about to go out and buy them, though. I’m not big on the brown ones, though. They look muddy.

  • I, uh, what? Why would you spend money on these? I am a big fan of combat boots (they are sturdy and surprisingly comfortable), but these look like they’re on their last legs already. I think you have found the shoe equivalent of already-distressed denim: impractical, a waste of money, and you look like a poser.

  • i bought a pair of these boots & they ripped , took them back with receipt & asked for a new pair , because i had them over 28 days they said no , all they could do is send them off to be tested. cant believe they ripped me off

  • They are acctually really nice! I really like them so… I would die for a pair and are tommorow, but I wouldn’t spend that much money on them only up to £40! But they are gorge!

  • Okay, you can disagree with me all you like bu i LOVE these boots… well, not so mch the black ones but the brown are amazing. yeah they look like theyre on their last legs- cause theyre supposed to! theyre combat boots! hmmm… christmas list? i think so 🙂 <3
