I like the boots, because they are a bit different than usual, but would go with everything. The mules are a bit standard imo, so your outfit needs something to elevate them I think.

from the pic of the boots alone, they don't look like something you have to get no matter what.
but if they don't get special until they are on you or you are in them, yay is possible.

how about your starman collection including the silver mules ?
if only the nature of the silver is what develops like the surface of a rusty pearl white spaceship, when it gets ruined.

update:
switched to the silver mules and they are SO much better...
thanks again...

the boots are def better on me than in the pic...
the leather is really soft and squished around the ankle...
they are basically sock boots...
very flattering on me...
i feel like i should keep them because when i put them with my other boots, they look like they are part of the family...

...

also, when i tried them in the store and asked some opinions, no one really liked them but me- and that is usually a good sign, believe it or not!!!...

I used to be so involved with these questions when I was more of a regular on tFS. That said, let me do what I can only do in threads like this- sway interest.

* I never had any real interest in mid-calf boots. They either had to be ankle-length or knee-high to get my attention. Some of you know I am not fond of over-knee boots. I still think the mid-calf boots in Post #263 are very okay. So I'm going Yay! on those.

* Slide sandals are more of a comfort option than something totally chic. And so the ones in Post #264 are not bad if that is what you want. My call on those sandals is (Moderate) Yay!


That's all from me. Please... dress (and shop) with confidence!

update-
*if anyone cares......

boots went back because i found something else that is 6 times better...
also six times more $$$$$$...
...

they are ordered and i hope they will be just as good in person as i think they are...

if they are 'the ones', they will solve multiple problems in my shoe closet...
*they are punk, low heel, pointy toe, chelsea, dressy, casual, everyday, dressy, easy on/off, sexy, cool...
and CHIC~!!!

fingers crossed...

hi nymphea...
these are them...
http://www.yoox.com/us/11057930RI/it...7930RI&sizeId=

we'll see how they are in person...
will depend on how big they are in the ankle and how high it comes up on me most of all...

also-
how shiny, how pointy and how comfy...
and if the heel is the right height...

*i really need something to wear with skirts and cropped pants and leggings and joggers...
cause that is all i wear...
i have loads of heels that are skinny and/or high...
but need more lower heels and specifically want a chelsea style...
i had been considering a style in suede like this for some time but never find the right one...
usually the heel is too high or too flat or the toe too pointy or the ankle too wide, etc...
these seem good and the black metallic seems way more interesting and more practical than plain blk suede...
so...
here's hoping~!

they are sort of peter pan booties...
and the image of that is pretty awesome, in my book....
...

I like those! Nice metallic sheen on them. Hope they tick all your boxes.

These booties linked in Post #278... I'm going to call Yay! on these, but not anything overwhelming. I'd probably praise these more if they were designed a bit better, but they are stylish enough that I give my approval of them. With all due respect... booties like those for $500+ USD? That's Louboutin money! And to that point, the price for such shoes is truly ludicrous. Maybe their price point would lead me to a "nay" on these.

Anyhow- I call yay, but not by much.
