If you were to get these trousers for work, what shoes would you wear with them? M&S

I like the trousers, but nothing quite looks right. I usually wear skinny trousers or skirts with ankle boots.

What would you like to wear? And especially, heels or flats?

I’ve just ordered these for work.

I should have said, I can't wear heels, and I have narrow feet and ankles, so I need some support.

I've got similar and I wear with flat ankle boots...probably swap to brogue like shoes for summer...

The material looks quite soft? Interesting that they’ve styled them with trainers.

Can you wear smart trainers to work? If so, that would look good.

How about something like these ? If that heel height is okay. Or a flatter, ballerina pump version if they offer enough support.

I also think they might look good with mules, but they might not give enough support either.

Depends what look you’re going for really (helpful)

It's actually a new job so I don't really know the dress code yet but my old job I just wore jeans and trainers so I'm trying to get a basic wardrobe together before I start.

I actually have the trainers they styled them with. They're from M&S last year.

Ankle boots look wrong with them and pumps looked a bit frumpy.

Lace up black brogues?

brogues or loafers, pointy flats

Flatform brogues. M&S have a few styles.

Brogues, smart trainers if workplace allows, loafers, or smart pointed flats.

I'm going to give brogue a try as so many people suggested
