If Wanstead was a boot, what kind of boot would it be?

Last month we asked what one should make of the Radley Wanstead bag (“If Wanstead was a handbag, what sort of handbag would it be?“). Now here come the Wanstead boots, – or to give them their full name, “The Ladies Wanstead Lace Boots” – a bargain brought to you by Peacocks (reduced from £25 to £10 for black and £20 for mid-brown). They are “stylish work boots,” they say, adding that they’re “lightweight, flexible and exceptionally comfortable”.

So, just as with the handbag, the same question needs to be put: in what way are these boots in any way like Wanstead? Answers via comments below, Twitter or Facebook. Thank you. (And thanks to spotter Gabrielle Collard.)
