I always wear trainers because I find them soooo comfortable and I can walk/play with DS etc. in them but I think they look abit... urgh. What do you wear for casual shoes? They can't be heels because I walk DS to preschool, will be playing football in them, walking the dog etc. Thanks

trainers are ok if they are stylish ones ie NOT ones meant for actual sport

otherwise converse, ballet flats, leather boots

I quite like these. I think.

clarks has some lovely flat shoes in at the moment

Footprints essentially birkenstock trainers
I have had a pari of these for 3 years and they are still going strong, I walk to work in them most days adn walk dog etc. Like slippers

Skechers are as comfortable as trainers but a bit prettier.

Thanks for starting this thread I'm looking for exactly the same.

this is what I'm currently contemplating. Cannot decide between chunky flat mary-jane or chunky flat mule.

CD they may be comfy but they are ugly

blithedance Wed 01-Oct-08 12:16:22

Yes that's the essential problem. I don't want anything that laces up though, either looks too trainer-like or reminiscent of what my mother wears (ecco/padders).

But would they still be ugly worn with a long pair of jeans so only just showing?

blundstones would last yrs and v comfy
they do sell them here

blithedance Wed 01-Oct-08 12:23:40

grin those are fab!

Really looking for shoes rather than boots, have plenty of boots but feel my feet need letting out occasionally!

I thikn Clarks 'Air' somethingy range are very comfy and IMO have nicer things than those here (sorry). They're still deeply practical shoes though, and therefore I have to imagine myself as a whole other person before I put mine on.
