Who has bought some new BOOTS?

The Syro boots are just ugly!   The ASOS variant are not much better, although heeled boots in large sizes are always welcome.   I see that these ASOS boots are shown as not  currently available in sizes 46 and 47.   Does that mean that they have been very popular, or simply that supply was limited?   However, the UK website still has the full range to size UK12.   (I am doubtful, however, that the heel is the 5" claimed.)

I didn't think we were supposed to use the "U" word on here. Or maybe that's just my own rule for myself. Heck, if I wrote everything I thought, things could indeed get ugly in a hurry! :giggle:

I think we are allowed to use the word UGLY, but only when referring to Crocs.

There seems to be a bit of enthusiasm over this style in malefashion so I bet they sold out.  They have a 1.5” platform so the rise is only 3.5” in a large size - 5” sounds about right.

There’s a woman who works here at my office and is always on the move. She wears a pair of boots similar to these and seeing as how she wears them almost every day, I assume she likes them and finds them to be comfortable.

If it has to be ugly,at least these boots must be very confortable

Yeah, I haven't seen any of the syro offerings that appealed to me either...

Decided to get a pair of the ASOS Chelsea boots as mentioned above: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-heeled-chelsea-boots-in-black-leather-with-zip-detail-on-black-platform-sole/prd/20048891

Despite being sold as men's boots something was adrift on the sizing. I ordered UK9 (they are marked UK9 EU43) but couldn't even get them on my feet. Possibly because I have a fairly high instep. I could try a UK10 but they look uglier in real life than online so they're going back. Free delivery, free return so no problem.

While I was ordering, I decided to try some other chunky boots that were available in UK9. I quite like the look of these so it's  shame they are too tight: https://www.asos.com/simmi-shoes/simmi-london-jemma-chunky-ankle-boots-in-black/prd/14194498

These fit reasonably. I'll try them again in the morning. If I keep them then the price is right, though they aren't real leather: https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-wide-fit-ellen-chunky-lace-up-boots-in-black/prd/12152117

The last two pairs of boots are amazing, loved the tough lugged soles also, great for walking for sure....

As a person with a high arch and large girth toe box I can see why the first one different work and am surprise the second pair didn't and the third pair did.

Nine West had a bootie with luge soles and a stiletto heel, gone when I went looking.

Tried them again this morning. The 2nd ones https://www.asos.com/simmi-shoes/simmi-london-jemma-chunky-ankle-boots-in-black/prd/14194498 are still too tight, quite narrow across the toe box. Really liked the look of them but being synthetic they won't stretch well

The 3rd ones https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-wide-fit-ellen-chunky-lace-up-boots-in-black/prd/12152117  really didn't fit. The right foot might have been OK with a little wearing in but the left was impossible. I think my left foot is slightly larger than the right. The boot may have been slightly smaller too. If theya re wide fit I hate to think what the standard fit is like.

So they are all going back.

When you have high arches and a larger toe box, this is just something you get use to.  All you can say is "onto the next". The third one I thought would never fit because the way the bottom of the tongue is sewed. Way too short for a high arched foot.
