what do you wear with jeans/trousers? I like the look of converse but feel they don't look good with my large feet and not very great height.

Get them, they are trans seasonal staples.

That should of course be "too" cold, sorry distracted by Simon Cowell (sadly only on the telly, not in my sitting room.)

Ballet style shoes.

fat trainers (converse are terrible for long feet ime, make em look like flippers ditto <shudder> ballet shoes)

adidas shelltoes, the love of my life, i refuse to never have a pair.

or socks with your sandals wink

MarthaFarquhar Sun 20-Sep-09 19:57:50

old skool adidas
or flat pumps (ballet-ish)

I just went from sandals yesterday morning, to boots in the afternoon! Yay, I love boot season. Don't do trainers. However, I compromised with ballet flats today.

I wear converse ( am a size 7)

scroobiuspirate- I read that as adidas stilettos and thought what on earth are they blush

Do you think ballet shoes look ok on long feet? I always worry my feet will enter the room two minutes before the rest of me.

captainmillenniumflint Sun 20-Sep-09 20:55:46

i do believe it's my only irrational area with clothes - i cannot stand narrow flat shoes (also a 7). with a heel they're shorter so it's much less of an issue. naked, or in sandals, they look lovely, but put them in enclosed flat shoes - particularly with narrow trousers/leggings and they look ridiculous (to me). but throughout my teenage years i wore docs and army boots, so i'm clearly just warped

I think I'm with you on this Captain. I see other people wearing ballet pumps/converse etc and think they look lovely, but just can't do it, feel ridiculous. I have this dilemma every year, still looking for an answer!

ballet type shoes, i like rocket dog though some have torn my feet up. find they go grotty pretty quickly though (why is that?). wore converse as a teen and then went off them for about 10 yrs thinking they gave me flipper feet. back into them now, they are comfy and they look fine on everyone else so they must look ok.. i like the levi´s imitation converse, the high top bit folds down so not too flipper like..

peeptoe heels

squeaver Sun 20-Sep-09 21:51:06

Seriously, Converse.

They are the official MN casual shoe with jeans, dontcha know.

captainmillenniumflint Sun 20-Sep-09 22:45:02

hahaha, indeed.

AnyFucker Sun 20-Sep-09 22:54:34

converse (large foot size is ok, IMO)

or old-school type trainers (Adidas, Dunlop etc)

shoe-boots if you want a heel

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sun 20-Sep-09 22:55:28

I've got a pair of loafers from Geox that I wear loads at this time of year. Just had a quick look on their website and can't see anything casual that looks nice in this season's collection.

sleepsforwimps Sun 20-Sep-09 23:18:52

I have these, they are super comfy, I love the fact they make me taller and they look great with my flared jeans.

Heathcliffscathy Sun 20-Sep-09 23:20:48

you know when converse have become the mn staple shoe that it's time to MOVE ON....

paisleyleaf Sun 20-Sep-09 23:22:31

Not particularly cool, but I've got some of those desert boots (I think that's what they're called), they're comfy and a nice forest green colour.

I wear ballet flats at the moment - have abandoned my Birkenstocks for 2009 sad.

strongblackcoffee Mon 21-Sep-09 19:47:51

I have size 9 feet, look great in Converse and am wearing ballet flats mostly at the moment wink

deaddei Mon 21-Sep-09 21:50:33

Strongblackcoffee- I too have size 9's- where are you getting ballet pumpd from?

Sorry I haven't read the whole thread. But this thread is like saying It's too cold for a bikini but too warm for a fur coat.
