I am trying to find some comfy heels to wear casually with bootcut jeans. I normally wear converse but want a few inches of height. I was thinking of Ash wedge trainers but I know they've been around for a while and was wondering if they're a bit naff. And if not are they comfy? And if they are csn you think of anything else I could wear?

Simply heinous.

I didn't know that's what they're called but I can't think of many shoes in less likely to wear personally. Even crocs would be better.

Wedges do tend to be more comfortable? What about wedge sandals?

The McQueen/puma collaboration wedge trainers are amazing. I also have a vast collection of Y3. They are comfortable, and very sexy.
Have a look!

I think that answers that then! Thanks for the Puma/McQueen recommendation, I'll have a look.

Oh no! I've been happily wearing mine thinking they were quite cool blush

I had a nice black pair from French connection which I bought about 5 years ago and wore into the ground but not seen anything similari in the shops recently.

Hmm they are a bit old hat now but that said I have a pair of Isabel marant ones that I still wear sometimes.

These sound brilliant - where can I get some? Seriously! (Caveat - I quite old and not cool!)

They are a bit Jedward. Having said that my friend wears some Ash wedge trainers and it suits her look.

Just no they are not and never were OK.

They are brilliant if you are a Spice Girl circa 1998.

Full disclosure: I asked about some thick-soled trainer things on here a while back and got my arse handed to me blush

Nike air max have a lot of height to them without being too wedgy! I'm a size 5 and can still get away with kids ones as they have more colour choice.

I actually think it depends on the style.
I don't like this sort of thing, but do like these converse, which wouldn't look too obviously like a wedge I don't think, especially if under jeans, and would give you the bit of height you are after.

Looking up these Nike air wedges right now......!

I am desperate for the Ash ones, I have the flat pair but they are falling to bits.

NataliaOsipova Thu 07-Jul-16 18:47:43

Hmmm. Not do sure now. I was thinking they'd look like normal ones but with wedge heels. Think I'm a bit past it for anything "street". Ho hum.

Hmmm. Not quite it either. Still a bit too cool for me, sadly. But thanks for the pic Brillo!

I have that last pair. I still wear them from time to time but they're not that comfortable.
