i need a shoe i can stand up all day in, that will be comfy and won't press on my little toe which still hasn't recovered from it's trauma a few weeks ago.

and will be warmish and dry.

and flat.

i normally weasr chelsea boots which are lovely but even they are sore now.

UGGS all the way!!!!!!!!!! Birkies in summer, UGGS in winter. T'is the school run rules.

from the birkie site

themildmannneredjanitor Sun 21-Sep-08 22:37:41

not sure i could get away with them in a classroom!

It's got to be Uggs. Or Ugg-style boots. They're like big cosy slippers. I can't take mine off. In the past few weeks, I have seamlessly moved from flip flops to Uggs, avoiding all other footwear grin

omg I heart these boots

I had No Idea that birki made other things


themildmannneredjanitor Sun 21-Sep-08 22:42:19

oh! x posts! sorry.

how long does it take for a broken toe to feel normal again? all bruising has gone now and it's ok in my birkies or slippers but anything else is really sore still.

themildmannneredjanitor Sun 21-Sep-08 22:43:04

Blundstone Chelsea boots. I have been wearing them every winter for about 15 years. Flat, wide, comfy, big sizes (I normally wear an 8 and wear these in a 6 UK size). A waterproof. Look surprinsglsy OK with work "uniform" - baggy tweedy trousers and white shirt. Fab with jeans, easy to pull on and off whenever.

Birkies of course!
Well footprints, which are sort of suedey sneakery things made by Birkenstock
I am wearing a pair now, I have had them 3 years and walked to work in them every day apart from high summer. I often wear them all day too if I have no meetings. They are like slippers!

footprints range

my ones in black if it reverts to red which is default

CountessDracula Mon 22-Sep-08 09:48:48

oh and they never get smelly somehow

mellyonion Mon 22-Sep-08 09:53:13

<whispers> mammoth crocs.....

Birkies with socks. No really! If your feet get wet, they will dry quicker than if they got wet in closed toe shoes, and you avoid the toe pressure.


cremolafoam Mon 22-Sep-08 10:21:45

stick to what you like

themildmannneredjanitor Mon 22-Sep-08 10:51:11

i'm sorry i will never ever wear birkies with socks! never!!!

wastingmyeducation Mon 22-Sep-08 11:29:45

Your loss (or more stylish clothing choice). I don't expect anyone to, but I figure if I keep putting the idea out there, one day I will not be alone. Of course it depends on your overall style wether it would work or not. I'm very me! wink
