Help - shoes

(12 Posts)

I need help (I have no sense of style/what works footwear wise). I quite like these shoes here. Could I wear them with jeans, if so what would I wear on my foot, ie bare feet, tights/pop sock things (if so what colour), or normal wool socks? I haven't bought these shoes yet, but have tried them on and they are so comfortable.

I am so sorry, and I don't necessarily have any sense of style either, but I think those shoes are not very nice.

If you were going to wear them they might be better with trousers than with jeans (something about shiny patent and denim combo is wrong) and yes you would need a tights/ stocking thingy, either flesh or black I guess,

Don't be sorry, I have a mental block where footwear is concerned - it's just the unstructurered range from Clarks are soooo comfortable. Never mind, will suffer blisters rather than look frumpy/odd!

would you consider the plain black/ brown versions rather than the patent? would be an improvement i think..

Yes, plain leather would be fine. Thanks for being so softly softly about my poor taste! Are any of these better for wearing with trousers or jeans these or these or even these - please be honest, I can take it!

I like the Un Book in black or brown.

Thanks dexter73,with jeans? Barefoot or stocking/tight thingy - flesh or black coloured? TA

I agree Un Book are best - not so school shoe-ish/ Minnie Mouse-ish as the others... absolutely fine with jeans but your feet will be cold before too long if you try to do them barefoot so either a black or flesh tights thingy depending on what your top half is doing!!

Thanks both of you, I do have boots that I usually wear with jeans, but would like a comfortable pair of shoes that I could wear with trousers and jeans.
