Shoes in question: http://www.clarks.co.uk/p/26121458
I'm trying to revamp my wardrobe a little bit and move away from the narrow boot cut jeans and trainers/boots look I've been going for (for the last 20 years... - although aren't boot cuts coming back into fashion now?!)
I've got a lovely pair of grey straight jeans with a bit of stretch in. They're as 'skinny' as I'm comfortable wearing. But am struggling on footwear.
I'm looking for something for when it gets a little warmer and need something comfortable to walk in. I like the idea of ballet pumps but need a decent strap on them. I saw these clarks shoes - can't decide if they're too clunky, ok or what.
Also boots - in tempted by some tan colour ankle boots but I'm quite short so wouldn't really want to tuck my jeans in to them. Would it look awful with straight jeans over ankle boots?
I think straight look good over ankle boots (I do it all the time anyway). Not keen on the shoes. Brogues seem to be universally loved on MN, especially Clarks Hamble Oaks. Sadly they don't look good on my massive feet!
Yep brogues or ballet flats with a small heel ( not completely flat) or yes, ankle boots with jeans over. I don't think those shoes will help update your look, although they do look comfy. What about more pointed slipper shape ballet flats with the longer front- might help make your feet feel more secure?
