Could I have opinions on these shoes (for work) please?

I think the platform at the front makes them look a bit tarty for work, though I like the style. Unless you desperately need the height I would look for some without the front platform.

I just bought these which I totally don't need to be honest, but I have wideish feet and high arches and am so ecstatic when I find a pair of elegant, non-clunky looking shoes that are comfortable and secure on my feet. They have a black version but actually the metallic is much darker and quieter IRL.

Did you try these? They look really nice

I like those Bunny. Aldo shoes are great for me as they seem to be on the narrow side.

Also being comfy

Perfect, as long as you aren't a hairdresser, or in a profession that entails standing a lot.

If you're desk based they are perfect imo.

Slightly more helpful than my original post (from my phone, admittedly) saying "nah, I don't like your proposed shoes"... smile

They are lovely bunny mother, thanks for the link!

I saw these today in Aldo, what do you think? www.aldoshoes.com/uk/women/shoes/low-mid-heels/93966268-bonomi/97

Thanks bill, I just wish I was a bit better walking in stiletto heels, I need something a bit thicker. Will carry on the search!

I think platforms look a bit dated now for some reason. Prefer classic shaped stiletto heel with pointed toe at the moment.

mysteryfairy I have size 7's and my legs are far from than slender and I think they look a bit clunky too, so I think I will leave them. Thanks everyone for your feedback, it helps!

I think they are clunky. Sorry!

mysteryfairy Mon 05-Aug-13 06:44:28

I really like them but I would avoid them if you have either big feet (could then veer into drag queen territory) or chunky legs (I think they would go best with a pair of slender legs).

Thanks bunnymother, unfortunately the Hobbs shoes are out of my price range, although they are lovely. Will have a look at Jones the Bootmaker now.

They are too clunky for my taste, to be honest. Not sure what your budget is, but the Hobbs Alana courts look good and Jones the Bootmaker usually have something classic that's affordable.

I think that heel height is my limit, I can't walk very well in anything higher!

tripecity Sun 04-Aug-13 18:40:58

They are just right, except I couldnt walk in those ! I hope you can

Thanks getting.

I think they look great - very appropriate for work as they are no-nonsense rather than sexy. I might buy a pair myself now!

spicywalrus Sun 04-Aug-13 14:37:24

I am considering buying these for work (I need a black pair with not too big a heel), but I'm not sure they might look a bit clunky?

Thanks!
