Throw on shoe recommendations (not trainers)

Any recommendations for a pair of shoes that you can throw on with trousers, jeans, leggings etc which add more interest than a pair of trainers or converse. Something for daily errands and coffee pick ups so ideally flats.

I’ve just got some fluffy Birkenstock clogs which I am loving for this - you can wear them with or without socks and they are super comfy.

@louisegriffiths98_13 I think a Birkenstock Boston Clog is a great throw-on shoe. Great in Winter with chunky socks and also great in Summer. They come in different styles (suede/leather/shearling) and different colours too.

Have a look at Pretty Ballerinas - a Spanish brand which makes flats with an injection of colour: https://www.prettyballerinas.com/en/

Or else try Bobbies - a French brand which offers a lot of basics https://www.bobbies.com/en/women

Hey I’ve been after a pair like these myself for a long time and my answer would be loafers, you can wear them with chunky socks, or just by themselves or even a coloured sock for more interest, I have my eye on these: https://shop.mango.com/gb/women/shoes-flat-shoes/chain-loafers_67020264.html

In the Spring and Summer, I prefer Indian shoes called “juttis” or “mojaris” - great slip ons. Great as casual wear or evening. Can’t do heels any more.

ballet flats have been my go to if I’m not in trainers! I know they may seem a bit “back-to-school” but the right pair can look really chic

I agree, loafers are the way to go. Let us know if those mango loafers are comfortable as they look a little stiff!

I am desperate for some Clarks Wallabees! Utterly love them

I agree with Birkenstocks and a pair of grey wool socks is a go to for me! But also ballet flats - A nice pair of silver or nude and black are the ones I regularly reach for!

I wear these all the time at the moment: https://www.zara.com/uk/en/ballet-flats-with-square-toe-and-buckle-p13507210.html

I also got these: https://www.zara.com/uk/en/mary-janes-with-rhinestone-buckle-p13522210.html?v1=274046731

I LOVE them. They look more expensive than they are and jazz up a jean/more casual outfit

A classic loafer is a must have! They can be smart or casual and work with jeans and trousers! I love these ones from Mango https://shop.mango.com/gb/women/shoes-leather/leather-penny-loafers_57084388.html
