Are these the most hideous sandals ever?

I am crap at this kind of stuff. I want flat sandals that have a tiny wedge as I can't wear totally flat shoes (they hurt me). They are for casual, daily messing about wear and I wondered if the above ones are OK or just frumpy frumperson. I suspect the latter so, dear reader, please help. Not much cash, £40 max.

They are a contender grin

I'll mark my place to google for you later on.

They are pretty vile. It's the wedge I don't like.

I have these from M&S


which are very comfy for work

Don't link the ruffle on the ones you have linked

BreasticlesNTesticles Sat 13-Apr-13 12:03:43

like the ruffle, sorry!

I prefer breasticles' version. Don't like the ruffles.

Please don't buy them, they are horrible.
I feel mean for saying that but they just are.

ggirl Sat 13-Apr-13 12:10:37

Orchidlass-those are hideous

others are nice but I expect they are too flat for you??

Our Barretts does Earth Spirt shoes and sandals, they are very comfy.

depends on the size of your feet - would look boat-like over a size 5. Also look really flimsy and will last five minutes.

totally flat shoes are indeed bad for the feet.

Um not keen.

Don't laugh but am just back from US and am a Crocs convert now. I bought these,en_GB,pd.html?cid=4I3&cgid=women-footwear ( much cheaper in US) and they are incredibly comfortable and I like to think rather stylish.

Well I really do appreciate the honestly. I have slapped myself around the face for even considering them smile! I have plantar fascilitis and really struggle to get anything that doesn't hurt and coupled with that I seem to have lost any sense of taste these days! Not a good combo.

ggirl Sat 13-Apr-13 13:32:03

s'ok orchidlass , have been there myself and had a good slapping from S&B . It's good to get you on the right track again.grin

ggirl Sat 13-Apr-13 13:34:04

fwiw I get plantar fasciitis and find the footglove sandals comfy , but must comfess I do wear fitflops if doing a lot of walking as they are amazing for plantar fasciitis.

HandMini Sat 13-Apr-13 13:34:22

These are actually the most hideous sandals ever

My eyes, my eyes

OrchidLass Sat 13-Apr-13 13:35:16

Oh and I read the reviews on those sandals.

They have been described as 'glitzy', 'smart' and 'perfect for a cruise'. God, I have turned into a cruise going middle aged frump. sad

OrchidLass Sat 13-Apr-13 13:37:10

Are they ggirl, maybe they're the way to go then? I really thought it was getting better but it's started to get worse again, I just want it to go away!

ggirl Sat 13-Apr-13 13:38:07

lots on MN scorn fitflops as fugly ..beware

ggirl Sat 13-Apr-13 13:38:48

yes ..brilliant for PF , read the reviews

CarrieDon Sun 14-Apr-13 15:38:22

MN put me on to FitFlops as a remedy for PF.

I wear them round the house, as they are a bit of a style-bypass - then use Scholl heel gel inserts for loafers/boots outside the house and it's really done the trick, 100%. I think the inserts "guarantee" they'll work which is pretty impressive. Worked for me anyway.

If I forget the inserts the soreness comes back really quickly.

don't tell anyone but I quite like the sandals in your OP
