The endless search - comfortable, flat, black shoes, with just a little bit of style?
Have I found them? I need a pair of practical but nice flat black shoes to go with both skirts (plus opaque tights) and skinny trousers. I like the idea of brogues, but they look ridiculous on me. Is Fit Flop the final stop before the retirement village?
Thanks tethersend, but they are definitely over budget. Ggirl, my Mum wears Gabor, which is hard for me to get past, but that pair is lovely. I'll see if I can find a pair locally.
I tried [http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Carvela+Loot+flat+brogue+shoes/198447776,default,pd.html these Carvela]] brogues on earlier, and they might be gorgeous enough to get over the feeling silly in brogues thing, but they only have them in sparkly grey or navy. Do sparkly grey shoes go with lots of other things? <not so fashionista emoticon>
