Thanks caffiene I think I will keep them to wear under jeans, thats definaltey the easiest way to wear them.

I used to have a pair of big platform wedge ankle boots, a little higher than yasmins but lower than urds. I was a little punk-ish when I was 11/12

I second what Yasmin said ... if your boyfriend is really into those boots, they'd be a gift for him, not you, since you don't like them. IMO you are entitled to another gift If that means there's no $$ left for the boots ... darn

PS angela, nay to the boots ... don't care for the shape, and you can see they'll wrinkle with wear ...

urd: the brown boots are cute! he must be having a temporary fashion-blind moment on the black ones. tell him they look like a tractor wheel and you dont want them!!

angela: its a bit too much green boot for me im afraid!

urd - maybe he's trying to throw you off course for his 'real gift'? the brown ones are so much better!

Urd I'm thinking Pinky has a point there....nothing about your taste or his previous taste would lead one to suspect that those platforms are an appropriate gift for you...maybe it's a red herring .

But to be on the safe side,I would still clearly express my underwhelmedness,if I were you

A big juicy NAY. Lets hope he is trying to 'throw you off'...I doubt someone who bought you those really nice boots (the beige ones) could possibly think these black ones are a good idea. You could possibly wear them with a paper bag on your head with cut out eye-holes so no-one would recognise you
