Talk to me about flat shoes!

I only wear ballet pumps, long black boots or heels but i have a painful corn and cant wear heels for now. Im sure the flat shoes i wear do not offer much support so i am looking for:
Good quality
Good fitting

Not frumpy/stereotypical granny type (dont shoot me for saying that!)

What do you wear?

Ballet pumps are the most uncomfortable flat shoes to walk in imo. I wear loafers or trainers (converse, adidas, Superga, or vans for me). I like brogues on others but they don't look right on me.

Would you consider loafers? I have a tan pair and a silver pair that go with most things.

TenPoints make fab flat shoes. Including gold and silver, not granny type. Often complimented.

I think the ballet pumps have contributed more to the corn than the heels actually. No grip in them to stick on my feet!
Hmm maybe these would look good with skinny jeans?$ja=tsid:69445~cid:683982890~agid:34622013346~tid:pla-64219563321~crid:152152107749~nw:g~rnd:11049363450657860355~dvc:m~adp:1o2

Lol im sure they are very comfy but i dont think i can bring myself to wear them!
Plus if you're going out somewhere naice..what would you wear?

Dr Martens. They do gorgeous shoes now (not just Oxblood boots).


And they're still flat and actually the shape of a foot.

Check out their Mary-Jane styles. I also have some really comfy sandals and their wedge knee boots. All super comfy, super flat and won't damage your feets.

Cross have some really pretty styles as well as the standard ones, I have both of the below and they're really comfortable.,en_GB,pd.html?cid=6N6&cgid=women-footwear-flipflopsSandals#&cgid=women-footwear-flipflopsSandals&start=28,en_GB,pd.html?cid=174&cgid=women-footwear-flats#start=17

Other than that I wear boots most of the time as where we live is cold and remote, so nice boots are the norm.

Sorry, those I posted are sandals but there are some nice flats too.
