Default Gonna buy these ankle boots, I think. Yay or Nay?

I want them in black. I am going to have to order 2 sizes and return one, but they look comfy and I know I will wear them a ton. Is there something that just screams NO! to you, that I am not seeing?

Hmmmm depends what you wear them with. I think under boot cut jeans or pants would look great, but they're not really the right shape to wear with skirts IMHO. Which color are you getting?

Edited my first post -- I forgot to say that I would get them in black. I would mostly wear them under jeans or slacks, but was thinking I could wear them with black tights too with certain skirts I have.

I'm w/you, i don't think they would look good with a skirt ... for me anyways, but i have seen people in fashion magazines wearing shorter books, like the ones you want. Just not my taste with a skirt, with pants, totally

I like the red (but I'm into red and purple shoes lately).

I like them. I think black would be fab. I need some boots myself, so maybe I'll take a closer look...

Nay, I'm kinda over ankle boots, especially with pleats. And they're way too pricey IMO. Try DSW.

Love these. The slimmer heel would look great with a skirt and tights.

I don't like ankle boots with skirts, but I think those are really cute and would look great with pants.

I totally agree, but then again I don't like low heels in general. But ankle boots, especially with skin showing should have higher heels to look good in my opinion.

They're very cute. I didn't think I'd like them when I read ankle boots, but I do.
