High heeled Timberland boots: they’re back. Run.

High_heleed_timberland_boot The last time high heeled Timberland boots raised their ugly heads heels in the world of fashion, The Fashion Police comforted ourselves with the certain knowledge that most people would surely shun them, and they would soon drop off the fashion radar, never to return.

Which just goes to show what we know, because look! Here they are back again, this time with fetching red laces! These are $119 at Shoes.com, who also have them in black. Proof that you can stick a stiletto heel on just about anything yo like, but it still won’t make it pretty…

    I love red and brown together.
    But… not in these boots.

    they’re still just a little better than high heel sneakers. if the laces were thinner and the hardwear lighter and if they took the padding out around the ankle, these would look rather charming. Unfortunately, they’ve been fuglified by a too literal take on the classic workboot.

    I don’t think they’re quite as bad as the original heeled timberland. I agree with gokarm about a few changes making a big improvement.
    Actually I think the black pair isn’t bad except for the red laces.

    I’m with Celeste: change the laces on the black pair and they’re not too bad.

    While I personally don’t wear this stuff…much…I really like this look.
    I am more of the pumps that remind you of trainers type myself.
    But I can’t wear the long pointy toes like this without looking like I have on clown shoes.

    I like these style of heels… i came across these cos im actually looking for a pair of heeled trainers. these ones would have looked better if they wasnt so pointy and the laces were black and it had some sorta pattern on them x
