flat or very low heel ankle boots that go from office to bar?

I'm after something that might cover work to be worn with black opaques but then be able to be worn maybe with black jeans and a silky top for a night out .
Any ideas? Flat or low preferably block heel. Comfy for winter. Stylish but with a bit of practicality!
I was originally just looking for work shoes but if I can get something I could wear out in the evening then so much the better.
I might just not be able to marry the two ideas up though. The ones I've been looking at are too heavy to wear with a silky top I think though I quite like the style.

I've been eyeing up the M&S low heel ankle boots - quite a few different styles.

I like Hudson boots -

this kind of shape

Or I have the Emmett which I really like but can't find any on sale atm.

Or Ash this style:

Although they're a bit higher than you specified, I find them v comfy (I have a style called Spiral which is very similar)

Had a look and can't find anything I really love tbh. I think it may be an impossible task as I fancy something quite chunky and comfy but that won't go with pretty tops for going out.

I did have some hudson horrigans but ended up putting them on ebay. They just weren't me. I like the enckes too but I don't think they'd suit me. Too biker and too cowboy style. Great on others, it just doesn't work on me. The ash ones are lovely but look higher than I'd like.
So I'm thinking block heel really.

Not a block heel but low heel Zara boots?

Thanks happy but not me at all. Not a stiletto heel girl. I'll wobble off them! Definitely looking for a chunkier heel.
I'm a fussy old mare!

There are some nice ones on the Dune website.

I knew this would be you!

These are a little more delicate than the chunky ones that you've been thinking of.

These are gorgeous and I'm probably going to get them at some point.

Love these but prob too high and too £££

It depends a good bit on the dress code in your office

The phenia carnaby are ones I have liked for a year now. I'm worried about the crepe sole and sliding in cold weather / even in the rain. Plus they are expensive and clarks never reduce their originals range!

Dress code is casual. I could probably turn up in jeans and t shirt and no one would bat an eyelid but I never do!

Err, not the hotter ones...grin
Favourites definitely the first clarks originals ones remus listed but they're so pricey. Plus I'd be waiting for another discount code for any clarks shoes anyway!

Esska have a really good selection - always comfy. I have some gold ones, but obvs they have non metallic too

Wanderingbluebell Sat 08-Oct-16 08:38:53

I just bought the Clarks Colindale Oak in black. Colindale Ritz are very similar but looser at the ankle. Comfy and not too £.

I have these. I bought both colours with the intention of sending one back but I like them so much I've kept both. Have had lots of compliments. I wear them with opaques and a dress at work and with skinny jeans or casual skirt out of work.

I've got some little suede black ankle boots that are very similar to Sam edelman petty. They are great but I am not sure how warm and dry they'd keep my feet when the weather gets worse. I'd probably avoid suede for that reason.
But sometimes black leather seems a bit severe, I think that's why I am struggling to choose a black pair of boots. Brown leather boots girl here but that won't go with black tights!

Sorry, I can't seem to get the links blush

I tried on loads of black ankle boots in Clarks the other day and none of them were quite right, and then - don't know what made me do it - went into Hotter (I know, I know). And walked out with these in black. Very, very comfortable, but also very nice. And they were 20% off so win/win. I also like the suede version though it's more casual.

I have these from Russell and Bromley - really comfy and I get lots of compliments when worn with skinnies or opaques.
