Style on Trial: Stella McCartney’s faux sheepskin platform boots

Stella_mccartneywedge_bootStella McCartney has been doing some amazing things with wedge heels this season. Are these one of those amazing things, though? We’re going to let you be the judge of that. What we’ll tell you, though (and we’re in no way trying to influence your decision here), is that this is the kind of thing people are probably talking about when they say they’d never wear Uggs, on account of there being lots of equally warm and comfortable options out there that don’t make you look like Bigfoot. In other words, they’re high heeled, wedge Uggs. Vegetarian ones, obviously – that’s not real sheepskin, but it’ll hopefully still be warm. Oh, and they’re £845 at Net-a-Porter

What do you think of them, readers? Love? Hate? Indifferent? Tell!

    About 100 times more good looking than Uggs – still I wouldn’t wear them, the tops are too mcuh 1970s folklore fro me.

    I actually think they are worse than ugg boots (and I’m not a fan of them, either) So a NO from me…

    They’re okay. For what they are, they’re really nice. I like the slight slouch and the color and the wedge IS cool…but to me it’s just a nice version of a very tired look. Time to move on.

    Indifferent. They don’t look particularly abhorrent to me, and while I wouldn’t wear them, I’m sure they’d look fine on some women, depending on what kind of outfit they wore these with.

    I didn’t like them at first glance, then I imagined someone actually wearing them and now I don’t have a problem with them. In fact, I’d wear them. Complete U-turn there!

    they are not for me, but the do have a very nice looking wedge on them, at least they aren’t paired with a chunky rubbery wedge i guess.

    Well, I’m a stiletto girl myself, so these are not something I’d normally buy. But I kinda like them. I’d wear them if I didn’t have to pay for them (esp £850)

    They’re better than Uggs, but still, no.

    They are beyond disgusting, words fail me. Lets get this straight, Stella is selling plastic boots for nearly £900! The mark up must be incredible. NAP sell Thomas Wylde calf skin boots with all kinds of embellishments for £1300; at least they are leather, lined with leather. Only vegans will wear them.

    The heels are too high for me, but otherwise I would wear them.

    If I wanted some ugly pleather boots I’d go blow 40 bucks at Target.
