Stylish Walking Shoes

I'm looking for comfortable, supportive shoes that I can throw on with a pair of jeans/shorts, a dress, skirt at home, on a beach break and on city breaks.

I currently wear some extremely comfortable pixie style shoes in beige that go with absolutely everything, very understated so go unnoticed. They're also made of flimsy material so mould to my feet. The only problem is the soles are not made for heavy wear and my feet are always sore after a day of walking in them.

Does this kind of shoe exist?

I was thinking the exact same thing! I walk everywhere too and it's hard to find a pair of smart shoes that are also practical. Hotters Is quite good though.

Cellardoor, I immediately thought of Hotters, but did not like to mention them on a Style and Beauty thread.
I love them, but can't help thinking of them as the shoes that dare not speak their name.

I wear croc ballets or Nike roches (sp?)

I wear Camper Ballerinas and Pikolino shoes. Not quite sure one style (of mine that is) suits both skirts and jeans.

I bought these this year and have worn them with everything, very comfortable, really supportive, well made - love them, prefer them to my Campers.

My ten year old loved them too- serious shoe envy, so much that when she outgrew her current Campers she chose a blue pair as a replacement.

I don't profess to be stylish though tbh. I would look at Camper, Pikolino, Geox and Merrel.

Lol what's wrong with hotters? I've heard m&s foot glove shoes are supposed to be good as well.

I have just bought brown leather Campers that look like Converse but are really, really comfy. They cost £££ and I am putting the kids up a chimney to pay for them but they are foot heaven. I have just done a week at the Edinburgh Festival walking miles in them.

Rose are they the ones with the elastic lace that ends on one side? DH & I both have them, they are going on for ten years old shock, still look fab.

I find the european brands worth the spend. I was a complete Camper girl until I found Pikolinos.

I quite like the look of supergra. Does anyone know if they're any good?

I bought a pair of lace ups recently. Foot pillows.

Clark's Funny Dream. These are wide fitting and so comfy. Not so trendy sorry!

I've ended up living in trainers.

Been wearing these a bit lately. I can't get away with wearing them every day, as they don't provide quite enough support for my poor feet and ankles, when walking miles and miles, but they're so cute and incredibly comfortable!

I would love a pair of more shoe like shoes, but have yet to find a pair that I can walk from one side of the room to the other in without pain or falling over! I can do boots in winter, which makes life a little easier.

And I love Funny Dream, but they hurt one of my heels when I try them on. I just know they'd rip me to shreds and I'd have the indignity of falling over in them because Clarks don't seem to believe that women should have wide, flat soles - they're all rounded, which makes them too unstable for me.
