They do, don't they?

It's the sole.

They look a very, erm, practical shoe.

Oh shit, they're the same. Hang on...

They look like the footwear advertised in saga magazine.

I want some gladiators that don't feel like the sole is made of iron and that don't eat my feet alive.

But I can't find any that don't look like something my nana would wear. If I had a nana.

Gladiator granny chic

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:05:05

I could rock that, Jooli

Are the second ones as bad?

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:05:31

I like the idea of a gladiator granny, kicking ass at the luncheon club.

They do look comfy like old lady gladiators

Jooli Fri 08-Apr-16 11:05:55

Have a look on the Jones website, they usually have good styles which are well made

Mingalicious, the pair of them.

Might I be so bold as to suggest these? Still comfy but not so fugly.

Definitely the sole that ruins them. I know it makes them comfortable, but so many decent looking shoes are spoiled by those moulded soles.

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:08:06

these, then?

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:09:02

Not so keen on the multicoloured, HeyNonny

I'll have a look at Jones, but their shoes are often too small for me.

HeyNonnyMaybe Fri 08-Apr-16 11:09:03

Or these beautiful specimens.

HeyNonnyMaybe Fri 08-Apr-16 11:10:34

The last ones you suggested are nice but too thin a sole for me (porker). The green ones I suggested also come in tan.

BestBeforeDate Fri 08-Apr-16 11:10:53

I like those last Clarks ones, but they don't look nearly as comfortable as the others! Perpetual dilemma really.

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:11:33

because Maui, lol

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:12:45

Hmm, I quite like those green ones, HeyNonny...

MadameCholetsDirtySecret Fri 08-Apr-16 11:13:43

The last pair are the best of a very sorry bunch.

MadameCholetsDirtySecret Fri 08-Apr-16 11:14:57

If you like those ones from Jones have a look at the fit flop site. They have 100's of pairs and are generally considered comfortable.

YvaineStormhold Fri 08-Apr-16 11:15:16

So what does everyone wear on their feet when they want to be a bit dressier than Birkies?

I've got daytime I need some glittery flip-flops from Accessorise and be done with it?
