Please help me find some shoes that don't look like school shoes...

I have looked everywhere, and I just can't find what I am after, so I am throwing it out to you lovely ladies to help. (Yes I know I am creeping...)

I want some comfortable every day shoes, with a bit of a heel but not too high, anything up to 2 and a half inches is OK, don't really want flats though. Since we are coming into winter, which means lots of ice for us, I don't want anything I am likely to end up falling on my rather large behind thank you very much. The most important thing about these shoes is that I can wear socks with them, I will only wear them with jeans and trousers so no one will know I have socks sticking up above my shoes, but it means it must be a full shoe. Boots are out of the question as I have fat legs. Any colour. Don't really want to spend more than £30-ish but will if they are perfect!

Erm... think that's it.

nice ones?

I have worn trainers since the weather changed, am really getting fed up of them now. I am due next month, I suppose I just want something to smarten me up a bit, feel a bit like a daggy fat lump at the moment!

How about some ankle boots ?

I tried some nice wide ankle boots on in Peacocks yesterday, suede in black and grey 2" heel (not spikey) and they were £20.

Schuh is the best place for casual, but comfortable, shoes.

Doc Marten also does some nice ones these days.

Some nice ones here too.

Ankle boots deffo the way to go I think. Evans do wider fitting ones fairly cheaply - I got a pair for £25 which are really comfy
