Elegant navy blue shoes that I can walk in?

I've just bought a gorgeous dark pink dress to wear at my son's wedding.

I was thinking navy blue hat and shoes. Tried on a navy hat in the shop and it really worked (but a bit small so I'll keep looking)

But I struggle to remain upright in heels higher than about 1 or 2 inches. And I like shoes with straps but they can look rather staid.

Any shoe queens out there who can point me in the right direction?

Not a shoe queen by any stretch, but saw a woman wearing these at the petrol station last week, and thought they looked so fabulous I had to complement her on them.

I know they are higher than you like, plus not entirely navy, but she did say they were really comfy (and the strap will help!)

Ooh they are nice!

Laska5772 Mon 02-Nov-15 19:39:07

do you happen to be a size 6?

these tick the boxes but pricey!

House of Fraser have the Carvela shoes I linked above in sizes 4 and 5

classic slingbacks?

cheap but nice!!

More of a 6.5 to 7- but those suede shoes are gorgeous.

The Paul Green Erin's are lovely, but I have stupidly high arches and high instep so doubt I could do them up.

Sling backs very smart. I might try some of those on

I'd never manage the Dotty P shoes- not enough support at the sides.

Suede Carvelas my favourite so far.

I have Gabor ones a bit like these. They are very comfortable.

I know they don't look it but these Next dark navy shoes are actually rather comfy to wear. I have a high instep too. I find Next shoes come up small on me (I have wide feet too) so I went for a 6.5 instead of my usual 6 and they are perfect.

Jones (and outlet) have comfy low heels in navy

I also ordered a lovely navy pair of low heels from lotus... suede patent heels - on trend pointy toe and £37 from kaleidoscope so v reasonable (weird for me to order from catalogue but had a cheap price on them when searched online)
