Cheap plain black shoes are the way forward. I got a pair for like 5 quid from a shop in Eldon Square. Cannit remember the name (may be Shoe World or sumit!), but if you go into eldon through the monument entrance, go up the escalators directly infront, then once you get to the top - the shop is on yer right.

this wont help you at all but we recently went to a wedding and my hubby needed new shoes...the 'smart' ones he had were years old and so old fashioned that i threw them away (much to his disgust) ;)

So off we went shopping to Brantano, (easy to get to and park, involving no walking up a packed shopping centre you see)!! :razz: ... he refused to go look in shops in town, saying he would only wear them for weddings or funerals and so there was no need for fuss plus he resented having to shell out on new ones that would kill his feet and hardly be worn, i suppose he was right really!

 

Anyway we get in there and hubby stands looking in absolute horror at the 'trendy' shoes on offer!! i could not stop laughing ;) "pointed toes?" he asks!! :lol: There was no way on earth he'd wear half of them, fashionable or not! In the end we found a pair of soft leather lace up shoes, sort of non descript really, but smart enough with black trousers, cost £40, which were prety cheap compared to others....wont see them again untill someone dies, gets married or christened!! :lol:

Plain black ones should do the trick.

loakes? are they like brogues? I could go for a pair of those but are they really cool these days?

Nah, Loakes is the brand. Been making shoes for donkeys years. They do Brogues but I just meant a pair of their plain slip-ons.

yeah but Brantano arent exactly cheap for a pair of shoes I'll hardly wear.

 

So is the consensus from the rest of the group that soft slip ons are the way forward? i havnt worn a pair of loafers for years! lol dont think they're exactly me like

 

I know Im gonna have to do a bit of browsing tonight after work but I'm sure I'll end up like toonraider's dad

well yes, i suppose i do look way younger than hubby come to think of it!!! :icon_lol:

 

Yeah £40 seemed alot for something he didnt want, but then it saved him having to 'shop' which he refuses to do point blank :rolleyes:

 

Why does 'slips ons' sound really old fashioned anyway? :lol:

those are EXACTLY the style of shoe hubby took the piss out of!! Said they looked like his dad used to wear years ago!

 

Zico, unles you're a young trendy pup, i'd go for something plainish, a soft mule type is more classical and smart.

pointed toes are the fashion, but for a wedding I suppose it's less about current trend, and more about classical style.
