Have you seen a pair of shoes like this but in leather?

I'm getting really fed up of ballet flats for work. I feel either too flappy or too girly in them, so am looking for a low heeled shoe I can drive in. I found these on another thread and think they might be the thing, but I don't like non-leather shoes. Have you seen anything similar but in leather, patent or otherwise (though I do like the shinyess smile)?

Bumping because I had exactly the same thought when I saw those shoes on the other thread.

smile If ONLY they were leather.

I do like the other shoes a lot but they are not so perfect for the job I want them to do.

It's the block heels that make them, coupled with the low-ish front.
Perfect for work if you don't do high heels like me.

There are these if you are a size 3.

Not leather again though

Marking my place - on the hunt for some flat(ish) brown loafer brogue type things that aren't mega pricey. Clarks seem really pants now I think.....

any use?

LaTrucha Fri 28-Feb-14 08:02:14

Oooo I do't knoooow! I like the little broguey tie up bit at the front of the one I linked to (glances at DDs faux patent lether boots to remind herself how dreadful they will look in a very little time....)

not as good as the originals which also come in red with cut out bits!

These? Sigh, I wish........

Lovely shoes all but I still want the original ones! Do you think if I just keep them in the office they might look nice for five minutes?

JRsandCoffee Fri 28-Feb-14 12:50:59

Yes, just don't do any running for busses etc or driving in them ;-)

LaTrucha Fri 28-Feb-14 13:58:16

I suppose driving would crease them up. Was actually specifically looking for shoes I could drive in!

GinnelsandWhippets Fri 28-Feb-14 15:08:15

these might work...
Or these but may be a bit low-heeled.

I like the Dune ones. I got put off Dune by a very bad pair of boots a few years ago. Do you know if they are good now?

Look at Office's site. Select 'mid heels'. Some lovely ones.

Shosha1 Fri 28-Feb-14 22:44:32
