Hello, I've been "making do" with about 15 year old trainers and newer slip on trainers that are starting to fall apart. Ideally I am after several "pieces" of footwear, preferably that will not need replacing too quickly, and if possible, ethical, although these tend to be out of my price range I think: Flat or very slight heel boots Trainers (pref dark) Smarter slip on or ballet pumps
I'm 40 and short, either a 4.5 (clarks) or closer to a 5 elsewhere. Please help, big TIA
Oh, I'm also after a cosy coat please. I'm not used to spending money on myself but it needs doing, I'm sloshing about in a spare coat of my dh. I need to look like I look after myself a bit more , I'm an embarrassment.
Once you've found a couple of pairs to set you away, Visit several shops and get a feel for what suits and fits then keep an eye on eBay - you'd be amazed how many shoes are sold that are only tried on or new with tags
