I got these Ralph Lauren ankle boots with a 70mm block heel, although they do have a tapered look when viewed from the back. Zips either side make getting them on and off very easy. A nice detail is the badge under the arch of the sole. The almond toe is a feature I like as well.BD0020EC-64A1-4EB9-9C51-8F746C88A885.thumb.jpeg.15b352104098dbae24eb8cc78e170f12.jpegBF9D9823-28AA-4B53-9D76-43070A3A9F22.thumb.jpeg.79b6ecf68578683bee62f76bec8049d4.jpegF8F3F7F3-36DF-4378-B06C-B2A599B952C4.thumb.jpeg.f4100aefe295175260ab472d25a93b22.jpeg6467F242-B653-4C81-A094-A57DE520FE96.thumb.jpeg.2df6c238755c3a577aeeeed227224f7d.jpeg

No she was busy with other things so I had to take them on a self timer,  hence the poor quality.

HeeledSteve's boots look great - but surely that heel is higher than 70mm?   

I have very recently bought two pairs of rather similar boots from ASOS - but alas I have had to return them as they do not fit.   In both cases, they are size 10UK wide fit (the largest size available) but are just too small for my size 11UK (Eu45) feet. :cry:

The first pair is 'Espresso' - black suede (leather), side zip, 3.5" Cuban heel.   I could just get these on and zip them up but they are too tight everywhere and I am doubtful about stretching them:

thumbnail_IMG_20181204_115103.jpg.b6126087fd1585a4d7405cdd049ca7eb.jpg

The second pair is 'Elexis' - black leather, rear zip, 3.5" Cuban heel.   The toebox felt fine but I could not even do up the rear zip - an impossible task!

thumbnail_IMG_20181206_122903.jpg.bc102e4974378903fa4a015626e6b14d.jpg

Sorry about the picture quality; best I could do.   Despite my disappointment, I recommend these boots to anyone with a 10UK medium-width foot, or smaller.   They seem well-made, of solid construction, with leather uppers and a sturdy Cuban heel that would be very acceptable for public outings even if exposed.   I just wish I could get something very similar in a larger size!   They do seem to be in variable supply from ASOS (going in and out of stock), so anyone interested should order quickly!   ASOS has other styles in sizes up to 10UK also (some in wide width), but again supply may be erratic.

I use ASOS as well, 10uk wide fits well for me. Evans 9ee(e) are similar as can be new looks eu43 sizes. But many of my items are Diechmann.

I did try to attach some pics but got an upload error (200?)

They look great mate, they look slightly higher heeled than 700mm, but a nice shape heel, they’re not dissimilar to my long next boots but an ankle version, think you’ll have a lot of fun in those mate

Yes I know what you mean looking at the photo they look higher than 70mm, might have to do a remeasure. As the old adage goes "measure twice cut once"

Same here. ASOS sales are sometimes great. And their own brand sizes seem to be getting bigger lately, but some of their other brands are still stuck at 8uk maximum.

Where did you see EU43 sizes on New Look? They list in UK sizes up to UK9 and their size chart equates it to EU42. Though the normal conversion is EU43=UK9.

Quick coffee on the way home last night wearing the Ralph Lauren boots. The weekends coming up some more chances to “break the mould” and get out and about in heels.

So glad i don’t have those problems, the only problem i have is the size 5 and 6 tends to sellout quicker than the larger sizes so can’t hang around with decisions

Thanks for pointing these out. I've just ordered a pair in UK9. I hope they fit. Free delivery and free returns so no risk.

I hope they do too, and that the rear zip doesn't cause you problems.   Do let us all know.

The wide fit version (often a better fit for blokes) is cheaper at £38.50.

I have quite a few pairs of heels from New Look - some are size 9, and they definitely say 9/43 underneath. Having said that... they are clearly not consistent!

I hadn't spotted the wide fit version. But UK9 is out of stock.

https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-wide-fit-elexis-leather-ankle-sock-boots/prd/9778296

UK9 wide was in stock when I posted yesterday.   And my recent experience with ASOS suggests that 'out of stock' items re-appear - possibly when returns arrive (or Santa's elves have made another batch).   Frustrating, but ultimately rewarding.

Having just paid £55 for the regular fit Elexis they've reduced the price to £33 today :-(

The search facility on the Asos site doesn't seem to find the Elexis boots if you look by size/style etc or any reasonable combination thereof. Odd

Yes. I have been able to land a few great pairs from asos that briefly came back in stock ... And sometimes at an Amazing sale price! Thats why I often keep items in my saved items, even after them going out if stock. 

In fact I just scored 2 pair of boots last week that have been out of stock for a while. One of then especially long.

I know the feeling.... Been there too. What's important now is that you enjoy them!
