Serene Deco Patent Mules, £90
Perfect for work and play, the Serene mules are glamorous, on-trend, and comfy. No, this isn't a cruel trick, these embellished slip-on shoes have FitFlop's special DuocomFF midsoles built into them for all-day (and all-night) comfort.
“I feel sheer joy seeing 'FitFlop' and 'party shoe' together as the season of festivities approaches. Imagine the bliss of going out in your fave slippers but looking snap cool too – that's the Serene.”
“These are beautiful. I can't wear heels due to an ankle injury and these would be perfect for going out and feeling special.”Shop now
Superbendy Leather Ballerinas, £79.95
Although versatile, ballet pumps are often too uncomfortable to wear for a full day. Luckily, FitFlop have paired their famously supportive soles with classic ballerina uppers (and cute bows) to create the ultimate workwear shoe. Don't be deterred by the thicker sole – these pumps are light as air and very flexible.
“I love my FitFlops – they're all I have worn since spinal surgery. Very comfy but not frumpy. I have the ballerinas and wear them every day for work. I also have FitFlop Mukluks, trainers and sandals. Obsessed, me?”Buy now
Petrina Patent Loafers, £100
Patent, pony leather, tassels and available in an autumnal berry shade – could the Petrina loafers be the perfect new season shoe? They certainly tick lots of boxes, being smart enough for work or for dressing down with black jeans at the weekend, and can even be glammed up for a night out.
“Love these! My ideal autumn shoe and they'd go with most of my clothes. I live in my FitFlop sandals all summer, and have FitFlop boots for winter. These would be great in between.”
“Perfect for work, comfortable enough for the school run, and smart enough to wear out in the evening.”Shop now
FitFlop Sneakerloafers look smart like loafers, but feel as comfy as trainers – a winning combination in our book. These loafers are the perfect option if you have to be on your feet a lot at work but trainers aren't an option. Although this black style is a great, practical option, there are lots of jazzier designs if your workplace is less formal or you want to get some wear out of them at the weekend too.
“They are fab – really comfy.”
“These are incredibly comfortable shoes which are suitable for both work and for the commute. I like to walk as much as possible during the working day but don't want to drag another pair of shoes around to change into.”
“I have been looking everywhere for decent looking work shoes that you can actually walk and now I have found them!”Shop now
Überknit Slip-On High-Top Trainers, £79.95
Super-lightweight and very breathable, these trainers will become your school-run go-to. As well as looking sleek and modern, the Unberknit Sneakers are actually pull-on – not lace-up – meaning you can get your shoes on with one hand and do battle with a toddler with the other.
“I love FitFlop shoes, I have their sneakers, Oxford shoes and ballet pumps.”
“I'm currently hunting for a pair of smart, comfy trainers. There are loads I'd like to try on the site and they're a lot cooler than I'd imagined. These look cracking on Uma Thurman – I want some!”
“I'm always on the look-out for a stealth trainer I can get away with in the office, and these would be lovely.”Buy now
Chai Classic Chelsea Boots, £120
Mumsnetters love Chelsea boots and, with stretch panels for a perfect fit and pull-on tabs at the back (great for shoving them on in a hurry), they especially love FitFlop's Chai Chelsea boots. Plus, they're available in four colours, so there's a style to suit everyone.
“We are a FitFlop household. I have various feet problems (bunions and neuromas), and FitFlops are the only things I can wear without thinking about my feet. I walk miles and miles in them. My husband has plantar fasciitis and they really help his feet too. I've currently got four pairs of slides, two pairs of ankle boots from a previous season, and I'm hankering after a pair of these.”
“I love these! I spend all my time standing by muddy football and rugby pitches, at riding stables, or chasing my toddler around the garden so always need warm, comfy boots. Stylish ones are the holy grail, and these are fab!”Shop now
Fifi Knee High Boots, £160
Knee high boots are a winter wardrobe staple; they look as good with skinny jeans as they do with skirts and dresses, and they help keep your legs snug as the weather gets colder. This year, Mumsnetters have their eye on these Fifi boots, which combine real leather uppers with a stretchy faux-suede back panel for a perfect fit around your calves. The chain detail on the front makes them stand out from the crowd and proves that arch support can be stylish.
“Love FitFlops. I have sneakers, Shuv clogs, and Bon sandals – and I covet the Fifi knee high boots.”
“I've got plantar fasciitis, and a dodgy back, so I don't just love FitFlop, I'm in love with them. I have my eye on these beautiful, glam boots.”Shop now
Pearl Stud Ellie Mary Janes, £90
The FitFlops you can wear any time, anywhere; we love the mixture of pearl, crystal and metal studs on these Mary Janes and the three colour options. If you're looking to invest in a shoe you can wear with trousers for work, with a dress for a fancy occasion, and everywhere in between, these are the ones for you.
“My Mary Jane FitFlops took a real battering and lasted me well over a year as a community midwife. I was always being complimented on them and they were wonderfully supportive for running between visits and clinics.”Shop now
F-Sporty II Leather Lace-Up Sneakers, £79.95
These leather trainers are very popular with Mumsnetters thanks to their sleek design and superlight, ultra-flexible non-slip sole. It's worth investing in the shoes you wear all day every day; plus, a good pair of leather trainers can look surprisingly smart when paired with tailored trousers or midi dresses. But be warned, once you've tried them, going back to regular old trainers will feel hideously uncomfortable.
“These. Every time these ones. I have last year's (slightly different) model and they have carried me comfortably (literally) through two summers. They go with everything and even though white shoes are supposed to make your feet look big, these make my size 7 trotters look tiny. I wear them with dresses, shorts, trousers, jeans. I wear them in the town, on the beach and on long walks. I absolutely love them and will get a different colour (even though the white ones are still going strong) for next summer.”
“They have a bit of a 1950s bowling shoe feel to them – which I love – and they look like they'd work brilliantly with jeans or chinos for autumn weather before the boots have to come out.”Shop now
Mukluk Shorty II
Fitflop's answer to UGG boots, the Mukluk Shorty boots are as snug and comfortable as your favourite sheepskin boots, but much more supportive thanks to their seamless arch contour and Fitflop's special microwobbleboard midsoles. Although they have suede uppers, they're actually pretty rugged thanks to their water-repellant treatment and non-slip soles. Wear them with the sheepskin cuff rolled down or flipped up depending on your mood.
“My poor Mukluk boots are sadly nearly dead. They’ve been my favourite boots for over four years. I had to stitch them up this spring as I couldn’t bear to throw them away…”Shop now
