I very rarely get dressed up, live in jeans and tshirts /cardies and usually wear trainers, Converse or boots. I was looking for a casual flat shoe that wasn't too "mumsy" and that would go with the clothes I normally wear. Spotted these today in Schuh, asked DH his opinion and he nearly threw up on the spot. Are they really that bad....Fed up wearing trainers...don't know if I'm getting a bit old for them. I'm 38 btw...

Spotted what?

LIZS Sat 04-May-13 15:07:30

link?

ArcticRoll Sat 04-May-13 15:09:31

Need to link please-but 38 is not too old for trainers.

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:15:43

told you I was old !! Dozy or what...spotted these...

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:17:33

er , no !

Well...they are certainly not the nicest looking shoes I've seen, but you say you normally wear trainers, so perhaps they are a step up from that.

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:20:17

LIZS - Is that no to the shoes I linked or to DH's suggestion...

Your DH is correct!

KelleStar Sat 04-May-13 15:20:34

I have them blush but in a royal blue, I quite luffs them. I also have the non-platform version in almost all colours.

Prawntoast Sat 04-May-13 15:20:51

I'm with your DH on this, and you are not too old for trainers, looks at my 45 year old feet clad in trainers!

Hassled Sat 04-May-13 15:21:09

I quite like your first ones - but not in the black. The red is nice.

Gigondas Sat 04-May-13 15:21:55

Don't particularly like one you suggested - see no point in ones dh suggested as they are basically fancy trainers and you said you wanted a change.

The bit I don't like on shoes is button detail- rest of it ok.

Numberlock Sat 04-May-13 15:21:57

Yes he's spot on, they're awful. But don't like his suggestion much either. How about a dessert boot or brogue?

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:22:25

Okay then....to those of you who agree with DH, show me an alternative. I have a budget of £40 (another reason I can't get the Adidas trainers...)

LIZS Sat 04-May-13 15:23:11

First ones , but not sure about the trainers either tbh.

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:23:40

See your suggestions now..X-post. Shit....I hate it when he's right...

LIZS Sat 04-May-13 15:23:49

Converse are doing ballerina pumps.

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:25:47

Are these any better ?

ArcticRoll Sat 04-May-13 15:27:18

Yes agree with your dh-they are awful.Prefer his choice.

Fanjounchained Sat 04-May-13 15:28:12

LIZS I've kind of gone off Converse to be honest. Last pair I got was at Xmas and the rubber lining is coming away at the sides. I have worn them a lot but would still have expected them to wear a bit better...

AgnesBligg Sat 04-May-13 15:29:10

What's wrong with jeans, converse and a cardi? I don't mind the shoes particularly.

AngiBolen Sat 04-May-13 15:30:26

They are awful.
