I can't find the perfect black heeled sandals.??

I have wierd shape feet. I can't wear pointed shoes as my feet are more of an oblong shape than having a massive size difference between big toe and small toe? I need some classic black heeled sandals that aren't going to hurt? Something I can dance in? Sometimes wide size helps but I don't have wide feet just annoying shape! Square toe fits me better. I'd rather not have a block heel, just a classic heel and not above 3 inch or I will fall over!

Can anyone help me please?

I'm really picky about heels but my absolute favourites because they're so comfy are caged sandals. They seem much easier on the feet because they're actually attached all over but still sandaly. I know not classic as you'd asked for though, sorry...

Bleurgh, I never thought of caged sandals as being easier on the feet, but it makes sense. I sprained my ankle last year, so I'm still a bit hesitant to wear heels at all. I sprained them in a pair of Cole Haan boots with a 1-1.5 inch heel.

I've got my eyes on these.

Iv not yet found a pair of caged sandals I like.....

Those toms shoes are gorgeous! Love them in tan.

I really like them too. I have a pair of regular Toms and some boots. They took a while to break in and hurt during the process, but now they're really comfortable. They donate a pair of shoes for every pair you buy which I really like.

THabks just, will have a look through house of Fraser. I like the asos ones but think the thick ankle strap would annoy me and the m&s aren't really 'going out' sandals to me!

I love the Toms.

Bleurghghghgh Mon 10-Apr-17 15:38:37

I've just bought these (manly foot klaxon) from new look for a wedding. They're wide fit and quite low heel and quite comfy! They have them in black too - £23

My leg looks hairy but it's my tan, honest blush

Purplerainbow Mon 10-Apr-17 15:40:11

bleurgh your legs look better than mine!

I like those!

Bleurghghghgh Mon 10-Apr-17 15:45:10

There's quite a lot of sandals in new look! Higher ones, strappier ones etc.

Bleurghghghgh Mon 10-Apr-17 15:45:35

And thanks. If only they were a similar colour to my feet!

Bleurghghghgh Mon 10-Apr-17 15:45:48

My legs, that is...

shakes head and sighs heavily this is why I should ban myself from the style threads. I love those toms, they look comfy and that's coming from someone who doesn't do heels.
I love them in both the black and the tan, black doesn't seem to be available on the uk site though, and they are rather pricey....

keeponkeepinon Tue 11-Apr-17 08:19:09

I'm after some of those toms in black leather you think they can't be obtained in the UK? They only seem to be on the US site.
Also, has anyone ever had toms heels before? Are they comfy? Bearing in mind I don't really like to wear heels?!

Someone posted these in the How to look expensive in 2017 thread, they are a mid block heel

MrsSeanBeanReturns Tue 11-Apr-17 12:04:16

I have these from New Look.

They have loads of other styles also, some with chunkier heels if you prefer that - like these...

MrsSeanBeanReturns Tue 11-Apr-17 12:05:17

Opps sorry cross posts with Bleuurrgghhh - (love your red sandals btw)

rightknockered Tue 11-Apr-17 17:53:37

Those Toms are gorgeous, also after a pair now

keeponkeepinon Tue 11-Apr-17 21:04:30

They are a bit aren't they. Only in tan leather or black denim here. I love tan shoes but I can't help thinking that shade wouldn't suit my skin. The black would be easier for me to wear. But black denim? Not sure how that would be, good or not. Black leather not available here unfortunately. Hmm wish there was somewhere I could try these on...

Just got these, very comfortable and I rarely wear heels
