And where can I buy them please? These are the only shoes I like with summer dresses and I can't find them in the UK. Basically I need a low heel and a slip-on and a high vamp. Thanks!

Whats a vamp?

I think it's the top of your foot. I don't want an enclosed sandal/shoe. i prefer to see the top bit of my foot as it's more slenderising.

No, but thanks for looking! I need my toes poking out rather than an enclosed shoe or sandal.

Heels out, toes out, but the foot strapped in over the top!

I'm such a idiot, I meant to include a pic. Duh.

I would call that a mule.

I was just going to say mule but wasn't sure if it was right.

Yes, I would call that a mule too.

Thanks. Unfortunately when I put 'mule shoes' into a search engine I get hideous high covered hoof things with peep toes or clogs.

I was just wondering what to call them so I could do a search for them to buy some.

I hate summer because I can't find delicate shoes I like ☹️

I think I'd call that a kitten heeled slide sandal.....

Would definitely call it a mule!

Thanks PFG,
Kitten heel slide sandal looks good as far as Google is concerned! Slide sandals on its own gives me Birkenstock style things which I loathe.

I just want dainty slip on shoes! Waaaaaaah.

Mules on google give me these

Kitten heel strappy mule

Try searching for kitten heel mule or slip on sandal with kitten heel

Thanks so much Member and Slug!

Slug, your link takes me to some adorable strappy blue ones at BHS of all places. Who knew! Much obliged to you, will have a look at them all now.

Peep toe?

CheeseGerm Wed 23-Mar-16 17:05:28

I'd call them fugly

coleus Wed 23-Mar-16 18:11:57

...and I'd call you rude.

coleus Wed 23-Mar-16 18:14:18

Belle, not the black ones. The first pic is the one I want a pair of.
