Found brilliant boots but need lower heel

Having a little mooch around Sainsburys, I was really surprised to find a brilliant pair of ankle boots.

They are just what I am looking for but I need the heel to be just a little lower if they're going to be my perfect everyday boots.

Can anyone help me find some - leather, this sort of colour, up to about £45, just with a lower heel.

They are lovely!
But like you, I'd like a lower heel. Hope someone comes along with the answer for us smile

I know. I was really surprised to spot them.

I'm tempted to just go back and get them (they're sold out in my size online) but I know they wouldn't be nearly as useful as slightly flatter ones.

How much lower do you need? Might be worth talking to a proper cobbler to see whether it could be trimmed down. Large amounts will alter the balance of the shoe but small degrees may well be possible.

I did wonder about that as they are great in every other way.

Even just 1cm would be better but ideally a couple.

We have lots of hills and cobbles.

Matalan worth a look

Leather lostinabook?

I don't have a link but I'm sure I've seen some lower but similar to this in Next.

You wont be able to have them shortened, the shoe is built for that height with the shank in that angle. They would feel really odd.(my dad was a she maker)

Pantsalive Sun 16-Oct-16 16:17:03

I'll have a look at Next.

Thanks Bruffin. I did wonder if I might look as if I'm permanently going up hill smile

I saw a pair in Primark the other day which were remarkably similar, but with a smaller heel.

Primark is a bit of a trip but might be worth it if they are similar.
Next has almost too many to look through. I'll have another try when I'm on a bigger screen.
Thanks all.

I have gone back and bought them. Going to try them at home and I'll take them back if they're not right.
S--adly im pretty damn sure they're too high. I just want to convince myself they're not--

Boden, but they're considerably more epensive

Primark probably won't be leather.
