I need slip-on shoes for work it seems.

Started a new job which involves visiting people's homes. I take my shoes off every time.
Quickly realised converse are not suitable. smile

I really don't want to go down the clog route. Certainly not crocs anyway. Can't/won't do ballet slippers.

Any suggestions?

Loafers seem to be quite trendy at the moment, would they work? Also some sort of slouchy boots that pull off rather than zip?

Loafers scream Gin & Jag to me. They're trendy now?
God I'm out of touch.

Off to google.

These seem tolerable.

Anything I wear is going to look shit with my NHS polo and fleece, isn't it? Blee.

How young are you?
Could you wear Ugg style boots?

elastic laces?

I'm a chubby 34.

I only think uggs look ok with tight trousers and my work trousers are straight leg.
Might work though! Would be jolly cosy.

Roll on summer when I can wear my beloved birkies again!

Ooh! Yeah!

That might work!

Ok having to visit a travellers site made me realise I need a sturdy mud-coloured boot, so I'm going with that! A Chelsea boot I think.

Thank you! grin
