Are these shoes a bit too safe?

I need shoes for going back to work after ML. On my feet all day and walk a fair bit too. I don't really suit flats. I am fairly short and I am so used to heels and tend to wear a smart trouser.

I have fit flop ugg style boots and find them great for country walks etc.

Are they a bit ugly ? At least I could work in them

Thank You

That was my though too dancing. Long black trousers mainly, so they might not be on view

Oh how my priorities have changed smile

It would only be for work or taking the baby for a walk straight after work.

The ugly bit (the great big sole) would still be visible in trousers. Surely there is a nicer looking but still comfy option out there.

jones the bootmaker ones

Sorry, I think they are very grannyish and ugly.

They're not very nice sorry op. The wedge sole is a bit too much.

Actually, they're better in rl than in the picture.

I think they're fine for work if you're on your feet all day.

If go for a boot you wont be able to wear them in a couple of months when the weather improves.

Sorry, I don't like them at all either.

I like the big sole! I bet they'd cost a pretty penny at Cos.

This isn't me, it's from Google images.
I don't sees anything wrong with them. In fact I kind of like the red patent ones.

Frankly they are ugly. But I am a big fitflp fan and have toyed with the idea of buying some myself.

They do look better in real life but not much

Maybe a different colour ? the black is so orthopaedic

blush

I think you are right.. I actually have at style of boot above. I am a big heel fan so maybe too much a jump to these

I think I am going to purchase these smile
