I've lost my shoe style

I need new shoes for Spring.
I live rurally so mostly wear wellies, walking shoes of flip flops.
My normal 'going out shoes' are tan suede loafers but I think I'm in a rut. I'd so like to look chic.

I've tried silver Superga, too wide and shiny for me.
I've tried Converse but they're not comfy with my flat feet.
I fancied New Balance but they look too casual for my regular style.
Brogues look enormous on my size 7 feet.
What I'd really like are Todd's driving shoes, but they're too pricey and I can't find any lookalikes.

I'm early 50's with a traditional boring dress sense; skinnies or 7/8s, Breton, cashmere sweater, blazer or parka.

Any suggestions welcome, thank you.

Gentle nudge for any morning shoe experts

Office have some nice flats in a good range of colours. Patent grey non lace brogues for example that look good for Spring. There are lots of metallic trainers in different styles. I also love my Jigsaw pointed flats and they come in a lot of different colours. Maybe not robust enough for everyday but good for nights out.

John Lewis online may provide some inspiration too?

I have these in silver, and grey, love them!

Thank you. Jigsaw have some gorgeous shoes, I didn't think of looking there.
Loving those Silver pumps.
