Black work shoes

9 replies

Please help me find some lovely black work shoes for Autumn/Winter. Ideally a shoe to wear with black tights and a shift dresses.
Criteria are:

  1. Mid-heel (I am tall)
  2. Must be comfortable as I walk miles in them.
  3. Not too dull- a courtshoe with a twist maybe
  4. Less than £100
  5. Leather (not suede)

So I'm thinking maybe a block heel/brogue type thing but can't find one anywhere.

I get my work shoes from Hotter.

They do a lot of old lady styles but they also have some smarter ones.

I have their ballet pump style ones and the flats with the tassel. Two standard smart styles. They’re leather, well padded so comfy and seemingly indestructible. Added bonus is that when they arrived they didn’t say “Hotter” anywhere on them other than the insole. Online pic suggest the logo is visible on them, it’s not.

How about any of these:
Style 1 from M&S

Style 2 from Debenhams

Style 3 from Debenhams

The three options above is more to gauge where you're at in relation to heel height and style etc. If none of the above is suitable, that's fine but it will give you an idea of what you're looking for (decide what you don't like and then we can work with that).

Style1 too low- but I'd wear with trousers.
Style 2 good heel height but I can't walk well in sling backs
Style 3 look like shoes my granny would wear! Sorry.

Thanks for your help.
To give you an idea I normally buy shoes from Carvela, Dune or Jones but they don't have anything.

Don't apologise - nothing to apologise for.

We now know no slingbacks as well as the other criteria. Will keep browsing and if I find anything, I'll post it up

I know you said no to slingbacks but how about these from Next:

WhatchaMaCalllit · 08/09/2018 18:00

Maybe these ones, also from Next:

Some great brogues in Clarks - just got a pair I love from the online outlet store.

I was going to suggest Sketchers but having seen these I think I'll just pick up my paper bag and go for my bus ( a la Eric Morecombe) Grin

These are close-
But not leather. Thought I'd post as a steer.
