Flatform shoes - any one know where/if I can get shoes like this, but leather?

I love these, they would be my perfect work shoe, but I am concerned about suede for everyday commuting shoes. There will be rain! And trains and a but of running about. But I love the shape and soles on these, and all the colours.

Perfect work shoes

Next have some in tan faux leather and black faux suede but they call them geisha wedges rather than flatform. £30 so much cheaper but not real leather.

These? Not as colourful or as lovely as the ones you've linked to but similar-ish? I agree about the other colours - they're lovely - just my sort of shoe.

I got some plain black & a leopard print from Office. They were about £50 but this was last year. Might be worth a look/ebay.

Next - I hate wearing faux leather, and my feet are so wide I need something with a bit of give.
Fit Flop - Could be a goer, I have Fit FLop sneakers and they accomodate my mahhosive feet (8/42 and wiiide) with room to spare
Office - Don't make shoes big enough for me, never have.

I think I am just going to have to get the ones in my link and Scotchguard them like crazy.

They're not very pretty, though, are they?

I agree with Knock I'm afraid. Lovely colour, but a bit ugly other than that.

Yes, but for me, my style, lifestyle and wardrobe, they are perfect.

Have a look on shopstyle - Office have these from £5-£15.

Love the shoes bikerunski , I would worry less about suede in the rain because of the flatforms, just like the original medieval pattens

have you tried office?

Thank you Tethers, I was hoping you'd be along soon. wink

As for Office - their biggest size in any style is never big enough for me, whether they call it 7, 8 or 9. I am sure they just have a "smallest size" and a a "biggest size" and divide up the shoe size names accordingly.

Ah, I'm dipping a toe back into S&B to see if I can get back into it wink

What colour shoe are you after?

BikeRunSki Tue 01-Jan-13 19:36:43

I guess general purpose black, but a shade of dark blue would free up a skirt I barely ever wear because I don't know what shoes to wear with it. I have big wide size 8s, can't wear anything pointy as the point makes them too narrow and really can't wear heels.

How about these?

Also come in leopard print

Sorry, just seen you want leather.

Saw these fitflop ones IRL yesterday, and they looked great... They are prcy but leather and apparently amazingly comfortable.
