Casual shoes help please

I'm after a pair of really comfortable casual shoes - need more cushioning than my Converse but not full on sporty like my Nike Roshe. Want to wear them with skinnies (full length or rolled up) and with jersey midi skirts and bare legs when it's warmer. Something that's not so casual that I couldn't wear them for something like a pub lunch or a day sightseeing.

Any recs, please? Not Skechers. Even better if they are children's ones, so cheaper! grin

Nobody? They don't have to be children's btw!

So can I just check - you want more comfortable than converse but not trainers or sketchers?

AND you want stylish and cheap ???? moon on a stick

I'm currently sporting these. So comfy!

Shamoffour Tue 21-Feb-17 16:35:57

Oops sorry just seen you don't want trainers!

They don't have to be cheap, cheap - but an advantage if they are!

I really like those red ones. What are they?

By 'not trainers' I mean not obviously sporty - I have Nike Roshe and love them but want something a bit less 'American tourist' if that makes sense?

I have lots of leather Converse - but definitely need something more padded.

Quite like the Puma suede ones. Have I gone mad?

Think the red above are adidas gazelles.

I have red Stan Smith and love them - surprisingly versatile and v comfy,21/2143162155

No it's just your age. First sign of middle age is wanting comfortable shoes grin

All my beautiful heels are lying discarded in a box at the back of a cupboard sad

Link that works

If have a pair of black and white suede pumas. Should I be embarrassed? blushgrin

My pumas

Those black and white ones are the ones I was just looking at. I really like them, but could they be worn with skirts?

LiefieLiefie Tue 21-Feb-17 17:07:18

I'm eyeing up these or these for spring.

Verbena37 Tue 21-Feb-17 17:09:19

I'd look at Rieker if you want something you can wear with jeans and skirts.

Margot Robbie has a pair if that helps you feel less mumsy grin I tend to wear mine with skinnies like in the photo. Haven't tried with a skirt though I think they'd probably go with a tube skirt.

EggsEleven Tue 21-Feb-17 17:16:33

I bought these recently which are v comfy. Office now OOS but you'll probably find elsewhere. Still not sure about skirts though

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Tue 21-Feb-17 17:18:35

Sorry but those Rieker things are horrible (imvho).

Don't care if I look or feel 'mumsy' (whatever that means) - I'm middle aged and a mum (of grown ups!).

I do quite like the New Balance but they don't suit me - they make me look like a toddler.

Somebody on another thread posted a link for Onitsuka tigers which I quite like the look of. I'm considering buying a pair of the black lawnship tennis shoes.

something popped up on groupon the other day, have a look on there.

EggsEleven Tue 21-Feb-17 17:39:16

I quite like the look of these for spring in pink

Haven't seen in RL and they look a bit flimsy online but have read a few blog reviews which rave about them and say they are v comfy and durable. I wouldn't t wear them folded down though.

lilyroses Tue 21-Feb-17 17:53:58

Stand smiths or adidas superstar - you can wear both shoes with everything grin

lilyroses Tue 21-Feb-17 17:54:07

Stan not stand

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Tue 21-Feb-17 18:45:49

Not terribly fond of Stan Smiths, but I do like the Adidas Gazelles and will try some on, along with the old skool Pumas!

AnotheBloodyChinHair Tue 21-Feb-17 18:55:41

Geox sneakers are less 'trainer' like and unbelievably comfortable.

CallarMorvern Tue 21-Feb-17 19:08:19

I love the Gola Liberty fabric trainers.
My 11yr old won't wear anything other than Geox as apparently they are super comfy.
