Where can I find a pair of grey court shoes with a block heel of low-medium height? I have trawled and trawled without success.

(MN regular - I just name change fairly often)

Thank you for suggestions. I hope I don't sound ungrateful (I'm really not and my heart leapt at having new options to look at)

I need leather or patent (not fabric or suade) as I need to be able to walk from car park to work in the wet and puddles etc.

No gold (I need cool colours can't do gold)

The heel on the John Lewis ones is the shape I am after (could be a smidge higher too). Sort of square heel (I thought that was what block heel meant but now I see that the ones with slope down, from wide at the top of the heel to narrower at the bottom can also be called block heels).

I would rather not have straps but a strap like the John Lewis one would be ok as it is simple and not ankle straps (which I find unflattering). Never had t-bar shoes but if they ticked all the boxes I'd be happy to try.

Please don't write me off as being negative and picky. More suggestions would be so appreciated smile

Thanks Bike and Daft. That's not what I mean by a block heel though. I mean straight up & down, not tapered in towards the ground.

Like this shape (but ideally a tiny bit lower- and grey!)

Thanks Hoe. I need a size 8. Not tried New Look as after a pair to be worn loads (most days for work!). Was thinking comfort over price for this purchase!

I'd like to ditch my black work shoes x 2 pairs and replace with a grey pair then a navy pair to alternate with.
