I'm a teacher, and an expert in boring but comfy shoes that will take me right through the year, suitable for parents evenings and meetings, plus daily miles of circulating classrooms. I've got these. Warning: they are VERY boring. But comfy. Clarks
Clarks is not just for oldies. I have these which won't make it on to the pages of any fashion magazine but are magic. They are really comfy despite the heel and I can walk around in them happily all day. www.clarks.co.uk/p/20358298
I've just got rid of some DM heels, which served me well for a long time. I now have some M&S Insolia heels, but they don't seem to have them in black at the moment, and they'd probably be too high. Or I wear pointed suede flats, or leopard print ballerina shoes.
I struggle with this too! I just can't do heels all day in school. I generally tend to wear boots with a very small heel in winter and flat pumps in the summer but I wish I could look a bit more elegant.
I used to think the same about Clarks but some of the styles are really modern now and you can't beat the comfort. I bought some gorgeous leather long winter boots and everyone commented on them and I felt a bit ashamed to say Clarks but I've embraced it now. It helps that DP works for them and we get a big discount.
