I love shoes and I love heels that make a statement. But it is a rare day I manage to keep my heels on all day.

I do flats every now and again but I don;t feel right in them and often feel that being 5 foot two I need the height when dealing with teenagers who tower over me.

I do wear wedges sometimes as they tend to be more comfortable but even they rarely make it past 2pm.

So can anyone recomend some comfy heels to me.

Have you tried M+S footglove heels? I did feel a bit of an old fogey but I tried some on yesterday and I thought they looked pretty, and felt comfortable

M&S Footgloves
depressing but true

FrannyandZooey Sun 09-Sep-07 17:30:32

I looked online and they don't have either of the pairs I tried on

look instore, they are really not bad looking

MrsBadger Sun 09-Sep-07 17:31:19

great minds, eh Fran?

quite pretty
apparently this season is all about buckled shoes & opaque tights

I have looked at footglove but did find it depressing, I do have a pair of marks wedges that have done me through the summer.

I also went to look at nexts version of footglove but gain very dull.

F and Z I have tried to buy your second pair the black wedges as they are very comfy but my store never have my size.

Oops blush Looking at the footglove range obviously inspired a 'senior moment'

I ahve some betty Jackson shoes similar to your last link, perhaps I oculd buy those and start of the day in my fabulous patent shoes and then when my feet get weary I could go into the footglove version!

tsap - what style do you like?

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:40:15

what do you do?

I managed to run and stop a fight while in an outrageoulsy high pair of irregular choice shoes this week, I am very proud!

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:41:05

good thinking mb!

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:44:29

My style is either wacky such as irregular choice or traditional with a modern twist so I have a lower pair of these betty jackson shoes

I buy a lot from office and monsoon as well, I just love shoes that are a bit different and girly.

auntyquated Sun 09-Sep-07 17:45:11

i teach in a pru
so we may have to run to stop fighting teenagers or escaping 4 year olds

auntyquated Sun 09-Sep-07 17:46:30

DD's tecaher liked shoes like this BUT she wore ballet type indoor things in the classroom.
constantly amused DD with all the shoe changing

kickassangel Sun 09-Sep-07 17:49:50

wow, twinset i'm in awe!
i search the shops for kitten heels as i just can't do highs for teaching. i also hate footgloves - sort of thing my mum used to wear.
debenhams & new lookdo quite a few, and i like nine west as well.

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:50:11

Yes I do that I have some leapord print slippers that I change into that sit under my desk and I appoint shoe monitors to take care of my shoes!

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:51:47

I also have some crocs for when my feet are in need of special care and I have trousers on - I have trained my lower school classes to chant "don't mock the crocs" if anyone makes a negative comment.

twinsetandpearls Sun 09-Sep-07 17:52:52

I want but I am not sure if that heel is going go be uncomfortable.

auntyquated Sun 09-Sep-07 17:52:53

i often just kick mine off altogether as all rooms are carpettecd -you just have to watch out for te odd staple!
