Sorry Choughed they are seriously veering into granny or nun territory and black would push them over the edge.

I can see how they'd be really comfortable though (trying to not offend you).

My Granny would not wear those.

Choughed Sat 12-Mar-16 12:41:34


Are these any better? Again in black.

If you are a nurse (for example) and need something practical with a covered toe for long shift work, I think they are fine.

Otherwise, no.

(Sorry for offending any stylish nurses grin)

Er no

It's a definite no from me thanks

Choughed Sat 12-Mar-16 12:49:45

grin say what you mean why don't you grin

My problem is I need size 3 which lots of brands don't make. And I need a strap because my feet are different sizes.

You have made me see sense. I have found these - any good?

New ones slightly worse than first

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 12-Mar-16 12:51:43

Now you're veering towards the children's shoe dept, no from me, but if you like them that's all that

nattyknitter Sat 12-Mar-16 12:52:24

Depends what you want them for.

Hotter mostly do granny shoes, but they are bloody comfortable and last for ages. If they were for work and you stand/walk a lot then I would say definitely get them.

Choughed Sat 12-Mar-16 12:53:50

grin I can't win with you lot!

nilbyname Sat 12-Mar-16 12:55:20

Have you tired camper shoes?

They are kind of ugly but edgy and unbelievably comfortable

Byrdie Sat 12-Mar-16 12:58:47

Why do you need a strap? Just because your feet are different sizes or for other reasons? Clarks do an odd size service (for adults as well as kids i think) and although it's a bit more, you can then go for decent looking shoes (ok, if you can find some in clarks!) maybe a nice ballerina?

Tryingtobenicexxx Sat 12-Mar-16 12:58:48

Oh god no.
Those are bad..[flowersconfused

Tryingtobenicexxx Sat 12-Mar-16 13:00:20

How old are you if you don't mind me asking?
My nana is 85 and she has a similar pair.
I'm sure you could find something better..but if you like them go for it.
It's you whose wearing them.

HeadDreamer Sat 12-Mar-16 13:02:39

byrdie I need a strap too for pumps because I git narrow feet. It isn't that unusual. I get away with just not wearing pumps! It's either boots or closed shoes like brogues for me.

Madbengalmum Sat 12-Mar-16 13:04:02

God no, they are great granny shoes!

passthewineplz Sat 12-Mar-16 13:06:14

How about these?

Cass168 Sat 12-Mar-16 13:07:23

You obviously really like them so go for it. Or at least try them in a shop to see what they actually look like on rather than ordering online. With trousers they'd probably be fine :-)

Cass168 Sat 12-Mar-16 13:07:52

No, they're not hugely fashionable but does that matter?
