Please help me find some non "old lady" navy court shoes!

I need them to wear with a suit for work and they need to be comfortable but not old fashioned. A small heel or flat is fine and I'm looking for something a bit interesting!
My work is connected to the courts so I can't do anything too Dita von Teese!

Any ideas?

anything decent in LK Bennett?

Ooooohhhh you can wear sexy shoes what ever you do!

So true - in fact that may be the way forward. Am feeling very drab in a rather staid suit - so maybe some burlesque footwear may be the answer!!! grin

Ooooo I found some the other day on the Office website hang on I'll do a link for you.

And I use to do court in similar shoes and managed up and down stairs all day covering three courts......

Here they are......

(what do you do at court btw?)

'navy court shoe' spells old lady doesnt it?

tulpe Sat 29-Aug-09 20:09:43

have to agree with missmelly. Is it not a bit matchy-matchy/cabin crew kind of look?

You could avoid by going for suede, perhaps?

Not massively "interesting" but a low-ish heel

from Clinkards

Or these from Faith.

What about patent navy?

Clarks have these.

sorry theincredible, only just noticed the 'we hate LK Bennett' thread! i've always bought shoes in their sales and found they wear very well but have never tried returning anything.

I really rather like these ones yid%3dfootwear%26seoterm%3dfootwear%26gclid%3dCPWt6ObQyZwCFaAA4wodzyM8JQ&pcat=footwear but a bit Dita? And plum rather than navy but so much cooler I reckon.

Too high for my awful bunioned feet currently but I really would for a night out or two.
