These boots have been something of an enigma to me for quite some time now.
When the black versions first appeared last year, I just didn’t get them: and I didn’t really think too many other people would, either. But then everyone did. “Get them”, that is. Suddenly I started to read fashion blog after fashion blog, all featuring these boots and proclaiming them to be the best! thing! ever!
And still I didn’t get it.
Now, the boots are available in white. You’re probably thinking this is the bit where I go, “and now, finally, I GET IT!” But alas, no. I still struggle to see the appeal in these, regardless of the colour, and £455 still seems like an awful lot of money for what is essentially a high-heeled sneaker. But still, it’s clear that these shoes, like so many of Ann Demeulemeester’s designs, are aimed at people with very different taste from me, and, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that.
If you’re one of those people, the boots are now available at Browns. Tell me, though: what do you think of them?
Eye bleach, please…

I LOVE the Ann D’s….in black. And actually I love the Free People versions of them better (lower heel, less chunky). But white doesn’t work. I think a lovely nude would look best actually. But canvas white boots are just asking for trouble.

ugh! I do NOT like these… AT ALL!
They remind me of this horrible chunky boots that used to be everywhere in the 90’s… just awful, really!

I think they are awful. They wouldn’t bother me quite as much if the heel wasn’t so chunky, but still, they are ugly.
I would not wear these whatsoever.
I don’t get them and I don’t want to get them.

I don’t get them either. They’re yucky. The heel has got to be the worst bit. Why do designers feel the need to make sneakers into heels? Like seriously.
Do. Not. Get.

They are gorgeous, both cool and elegant. The line is perfect. I like them more in white, which makes them less harsh.
