    Yes, the only beautifull ones I've seen are from ebay or second-hand shops

    the last pair in the first post are jazz shoes in my book.. but yes, I saw a girl wearing them yesterday.. I think she might've gotten them at UO, since they looked very similar to this pair, except that there is no UO around here, ha.

    I'm not sure I like them.. I guess the girl I saw looked too much of a hipster that it tainted the idea of wearing these shoes in my head but I suppose.. the right person could pull them off... someone that's channeling other 'granny' things with some wit and not.. in such a trendy manner.

    I really love Granny boots^_^ I see mostly 'Hipster' girls wearing them but I think they look fab, depending how you dress or how you wear them.

    I wanted a pair especially for wearing with one of my favorite dresses as a flat shoe option that isn't a ballet flat. I really really like the last pair in the Liebemarlene pictures.

    i think they're really versatile. i have a pair of ferragamo's, and they go with almost anything. and yes, they do work in place of a ballet flat. they make the dress more interesting.

    I don't see them as granny boots, I see them more like grandpa's boots (my grandfather owns a pair and I've always love my grandfather style , such a dandy)
    So I definitely want a pair"!

    i thought they are just called high-cut shoes/boots
    i like them too
    but i'm hoping to find one without laces...

    Marni used to carry menswear in their online shop
    but seems to have been taken down
    There was one boot like this, a charcoal colour unfortunately
    and in one fabric...

    For me, they cause a great impression.

    I think they're pretty cute! Although like MulletProof said, they're bound to be tainted by their own hipster cred, plus they have the tendency to be a bit Little House on the Prairie-ish. Still, they look comfortable for everyday wear, and could look pretty good with interesting enough styling!

    I don't really like them, but every time I put a pair in my online store they sell within the hour...So girls are loving them.
