As far as I'm concerned, comfy shoes are a fundamental part of the grown-up woman's wardrobe. No one ever looks glamorous if their feet hurt. And they can't walk properly. But this doesn't have to mean a life spent in orthopaedic purgatory. Chic flats look brilliant with cigarette pants and a smart winter coat - and the good news is that British footwear brand Russell & Bromley is launching an e-commerce site on December 3, just in time for Christmas.
Here's Angelina Jolie in the über-popular Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley over-knee boot. This swashbuckling style isn't something I've ever considered before but there comes a point in life when knee-coverage is a must, so I'm keeping my options open.
But this isn't a label for A-listers only, I've tuned into R&B in the past and in-house style icon Mr That's Not My Age is the proud owner of a pair of classic suede ankle boots that, 'Are sleek and comfy and have lasted for years.'
Oh and in other online news: That's Not My Age is now available by email subscription. See sidebar widget (over there on the right, below my Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest buttons).
