Is there such a thing as flat going out shoes?!

I've an injury to my foot and I can't wear any heel at all. I need arch support and even low heels are aggravating the issue. Trouble is, I need some shoes/boots that I can wear for some nights out coming up - ones that I can wear with opaques and skirts as well as skinnies. I'm stumped. Nothing looks smart enough. Please can you help?

Rothy's pointed toe flats

For Xmas/NY party season I quite like the look of the metallic ones, which have a bit of sparkle

I've just looked at the Rothy's ones. The soles on those wouldn't last a night out! Walk outside in for any amount of time and the backs will be wreaked.

Don't know what you do on your nights out but my Rothy's do me just fine for walking around.

Oh blimey I just wear nice trainers or flat leopard print or other ankle boots. Or you could wear DMs or loafers. My knees are fucked so that's that. Comfort is king, sorry to be so boring.

I wear boots or black patent lace-ups, I can't wear any heels or ballet flat types.

I love these, some other fancy flats on that site too

Vionic - have built in support, lots of choice

I bought some over the knee flat boots. They were really smart, pointed toe but flat. Think I bought them from next

Lots on ASOS. Pointed flat glitter.

Put on some flat shoes. Go out.

(Sorry, not helping but couldn't resistwink)

Yes comfort is king! I'd normally wear trainers or docs or boots but for once I am dressing up a bit more so need something a bit slicker. I think. I've loads of trainers, but it's not going to cut it with a christmassy outfit. Say I wore a fine knit jumper, black skinnies or a skirt (leopard or floral or sequin - I've a choice!) trainers are not going to look right with black opaque tights are they?

I think the rothay ones are a bit out of my price range.
Is there a lowish vamp ankle boot, like a v fronted one that's flattering to your ankles?

Asos have all sorts of flat shoes. They can definitely be dressed up.

Elloello Mon 02-Dec-19 22:15:11

Or even a lace up flat, or some sort of fur lined thing? I don't know what I'm trying to think of!

Elloello Mon 02-Dec-19 22:16:21

I think I want more of a boot than a shoe I totally accept that I asked about shoes in the title

I wonder how many men will be putting themselves into uncomfortable shoes for going out to Christmas parties?

poppy2021 Mon 02-Dec-19 22:32:13

@Elloello I have this problem too but have wide feet. It's a nightmare

Elloello Mon 02-Dec-19 22:35:01

Could I do knee boots/biker boots maybe? Maybe I'll just do that and find a really nice jumper that goes with that more casual look? I think skirts are going to be out. I need to be truly comfy or it'll ruin the night and set me back ages with my sore foot.

WhoKnewBeefStew Mon 02-Dec-19 22:40:38

How about a sparkly tunic type thing, shiny leggings or coated leggings with some smart either ankle or knee high boots. That's my 'go to' as I can't wear heels any longer

Charley50 Mon 02-Dec-19 22:41:41

People wear dms, trainers or converse with skirts up my way, including for going out out, or just out. Maybe go for an edgy look, rather than a glam look.

"I wonder how many men will be putting themselves into uncomfortable shoes for going out to Christmas parties?"
^^ And this.

And why do female politicians do it? So old school.
