Are these shoes horrible? I can't tell anymore.

I need to wear some sort of shoes on my feet. My feet tend to get really cold so I need the shoes to be sock-wearable. High heels hurt. Will I look really stupid if I buy these? It's so so hard to find nice flats. Help!

No I don't think they are nice. The soles and bit above the soles look really odd and make the shoe look clompy.

What about the Clarks Hamble Oak instead? I have a few pairs and absolutely love them.

hmm they look like Doc Martens
if you're going for that vibe ??

I'm not keen but they look comfy

are you looking for flats to wear with jeans or skirts?

I love shoes and have far too many lots, and I'm very fussy about I wear on my feet - but I'd wear those!

I like the retro-brogue feel. Do it!

They are masculine to me.

I do understand the trouble in finding shoes that are comfortable and nice.

I hate buying new shoes as its such a chore!

I find earth spirit shoes and boots are suited to my feet.

What about sketchers go walk?

I think they are great!
Unless you have a specific preference for that colour, I would also check out DM's who do the same style in many variations. they even do a "For Life" version - you pay extra but DM will repair and maintain them forever so you only buy once.

Infinitely nicer imo

They look very comfortable and the sort of thing you could do a fair bit of walking, but not to my taste. I tend to try and avoid laces and will wear slip on loafers.

I think it entirely depends on what you will be wearing with them. Personally I don't like them, I think they look really frumpy but I can see why some might think they suit a certain 'look'. They won't be so good for the coming summer months though, they are very heavy and clumpy.

I've was asking myself the same question yesterday about the same shoes. Will watch.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 05-Apr-16 18:34:32

I like them but I don't care what anyone else thinks grin

Good God those shoes are fugly

MabelSideswipe Tue 05-Apr-16 18:36:36

I have them (and paid full price). I have had compliments.
I wear them with jeans/chinos with turn-ups. I would not wear them with a skirt or dress. They are very very comfy.

ScarletForYa Tue 05-Apr-16 18:36:36

They're hideous. Sorry OP!

Madbengalmum Tue 05-Apr-16 18:37:41

Horrid, sorry OP

Depending on what you wear them with and how you carry yourself they'll either look kind of cool or they'll look like your dads shoes. It's a fine line to walk.

Not nice. If you want masculine looking shoes, you can't go wrong with DMs.

SwedishEdith Tue 05-Apr-16 18:44:56

They're on the cusp - agree it's a fine line. I feel for you , OP.

Very difficult to find flat shoes for work we have a long walking commute and when can't wear ballet shoes.

SaveSomeSpendSome Are you me? I like Earth Spirit and Go Walk, but have been told many times on MN that they extremely frumpy. Quite frankly comfort is more important than looks when I am doing a lot of walking.

I do have silly shoes as well, but only if I am not doing much walking.

JohnCheese Tue 05-Apr-16 18:53:31

Sorry, I don't like them.

Costacoffeeplease Tue 05-Apr-16 18:55:18

That's one ugly shoe op

Quantumleapinthedark Tue 05-Apr-16 18:57:33

As others have said, either go for DMs or if you'd like a brogue Clark's 'hamble oak' is brilliant.

BikeRunSki Tue 05-Apr-16 19:00:47

I love those in the OP!

SwedishEdith Tue 05-Apr-16 19:06:21

DMs take so long to break in.

They are horrible, OP. Sorry, but they're clompy without being trendy, and just ugly.
