    I'm looking for comfortable shoes to buy before term starts and would be grateful for recommendations, please.
    I wear colourful, 1950s style dresses every day, so they'd need to work with a dress. I prefer flat but thick-soled styles.
    Anybody out there raving about shoes that served them well last year?
    Many thanks

    I like the Rieker T-bar ones. They have a low heel but are very comfortable.

    Thank you - may be worth a try, but the soles look thinner than I'm used to

    No apology required! We have very similar taste :) Please do you have links to the retailers? Many thanks

    My steel-toecap boots are the most comfortable thing I have in shoes.

    Failing that, North Face 'hedgehog' walking sandals.

    I had been thinkiing Hush Puppies myself. Just wasn't sure they were still around.
    I like Ecco and Hotter ,but they are expensive.

    The soles are a bit on the thin side but good for all weather
