Shoes to bridge the gap between boots and sandals

It's that time of year when my boots become a bit too warm and my sandals are too cold.

I have some converse which are all right but am finding they're not too comfortable especially on my right little toe.

I'd prefer something that I can wear socks with and probably that covers at amount of my foot. What is similar to converse, or what else do people suggest?

Ideally I don't want to spend too much either grin. Am wondering what anyone could suggest.

I've moved from Converse to trainers (Nike). Converse gave me a bunion and plantar fascitis.

My feet now refuse to wear anything else.

Nike Flex run 2016

Go well with most things

Ive bought rocket dog trainers (similar to converse, but a bit wider and more comfortable sole), lots of different patterns too.

Trainers or brogues? I have quite a trainer collection - mainly Nike and Adidas - which I wear with trousers, jeans and dresses, and just bought some lovely new brogues from Dune.

Thank you for all the ideas smile.

I mostly wear skater dresses with leggings so most of the suggested shoes should go with them I think.

Poor DH got dragged round various shoe shops today grin

I usually find that cheap unbranded baseball boots (converse-style) fit me better than Converse. Toes are the wrong shape for me on Converse. You can get them somewhere like Primark for under a tenner.

Trouble is, that cheaper Converse and Converse alike have no arch support. Feet now buggered by that

Keen sneakers are very supportive and wider than Converse.

I have really flat feet so have no problems with Converse smile

Those Nike trainers look really nice though.............
