I'm looking for some comfortable shoes, mainly for work. What do you think? OK or horribly frumpy?

What would you wear them with? Ankle length tailored/straight leg black trousers and an oversized blouse/shirt would be lovely.

Even Ann Widdecombe would find these frumpy.

Thanks, I was thinking slim ankle length trousers. I don't want to look like Ann Widdecombe though (or worse!).

Might be better in brighter colour.

Don't buy them. Barbara Woodhouse would have worn those.

They're hideous, sorry OP.

I think they're preppie ie but the colour says Frinton in a carcoat. Black would be a lot better. Gold would work properly.

I think they are but depends how you wore them. If you like then go for it!

Posters saying they are frumpy are a bit out of touch. I'm 27 and work in a professional environment - lots of my colleagues from 20s to 50s wear loafers of different styles and colours including similar ones to those posted both in office and out for drinks after work and look smart. If you're wearing them with slim flit trousers or jeans, and bare feet they're fine, only if with frilly dresses and baggy tights then maybe a bit frumpy!

Frumpy in tan.... better in white, silver, primary colour...

Not frumpy - they are everywhere just now.

I love them in tan.
