I don't think they're too mumsy, they're quite cute and would look cute with a dress I think (although I'm not a fan of ankle boots with a dress or skinnies,but that's just me!)
I am a Clarks convert though, quite horrified with myself, but I walk a lot too and need grippy bottoms and decent quality and ended up getting these delivered today (don't do flats) www.clarks.co.uk/p/26104356 have to say they are very comfy!
Green - do like those second link, they are far nicer, but also far higher. I have a dilema as the only exercise I get is walking, I either have mumsy footwear and a small arse or I go back to wearing my heels, driving, and having a fat arse. Tis not a good choice (and I have 4 pairs of heeled ankle boots, 3 pairs of knee highs, I'm all good for boots I can't walk a long way in, it's flat and stylish I need).
<sigh> any other suggestions for flat and practical but nice boots?
I'm naughty,I walk miles in heels sometimes wish I could go with flats but they're just not me (and I may have damaged my calf muscles a bit due to wearing heels daily,for everything, for around 18 years -since my mid teens!)
Missmartha - see, I can see if I didn't have such small feet, they would look good, but when you shrink down 'clumpy' shoes to size 3 feet, they tend to look wrong and give you 'noddy' looking legs/feet unless you wear them with wider leg trousers.
TripTrap - I used to walk a lot in heels, then had hip problems with each DC and now I can only walk an distance in flats. I think I might start 'building up' the distance I can do in heels - it would solve the problem by allowing me to just wear my old boots rather than buy new ones!
