I need some flat shoes for work but I can't find any that I don't think look like men's shoes!

I'm fairly tool (5'10) but live in heels apart from trainers and hiking boots as I find flat shoes make my size 7-8 feet look massive and I feel really masculine in flats!

I'm 17 weeks pregnant and really need to find some smart, comfortable shoes for work that are feminine and cover the whole foot (so can be worn with socks and slim trousers).

I tried these
Which I thought were ok but feel £165 is a lot for shoes I don't really like.

I can spend up to about £200 for the perfect shoes. Not concerned if they're boots or shoes and work in London so can get to most shops to try on.

Thank you for anyone who takes the time to read!

can't do links on phone, but go to Land's End and search "ballet flat". Many styles, not your average ballet flat.

Apparently Clark's brogues are very comfortable. (Found that out on another S&B thread tonight). Camper have some very comfy flat shoes too.

Sorry I fell asleep last night before reading these! I'm still waiting for this second trimester burst of energy!

Thank you everyone for taking the time to respond and look.

bikerunski I had a look at landsend website but I don't think there are any I could wear with socks

Arbitrary thank you. There's a pair I like and I've ordered them into store... I like them just as much as the Russell & Bromley ones and £100 cheaper so will be much more inclined to buy them if they fit ok

tethersend thank you I like them. Would need to try though and not sure where I can order them in ( I'm not good at ordering stuff and returning if it doesn't fit)

Hopefully the clarkes ones will be ok and I'll be done!

Dune has some really nice flats. They are not too clumpy. Take a look at the brogues here
