Tis the season to be jolly and as such, We Lesser Mortals like to get down on the dance floor, or to prop the bar up  all night, like the best of them. But can we do this in some lovely party shoes, without risking a month in traction afterwards? Let’s face it,  we’re not all Victoria Beckham, and the need to have some suitable footwear to walk/dance/have use for on another occasion, is foremost in our minds. We Lesser Mortals have also been there and done silly height shoes when we were younger….something about older and wiser???

Well, here are my suggestions for some  party shoes, which I think will have longevity and can be used for other occasions too.

  1. Silver T -bar pointed court shoe. Next £30. This is a  fabulous little shoe for dancing the night away. You can either think of it as “Strictly” footwear, but more importantly, this retro style is going to work in the summer too and with the new crop trouser trend. It is 100% man made, so appeals to vegans.
  2. Azizi Iris red suede shoe. Clarks £69.99. (Shhhhh!! Don’t tell anyone I’ve said Clarks.) Available in half sizes, and with cushioned soles – imagine how comfy they’ll be on your feet….. The red colour will work brilliantly with your LBD. They will also translate well in summer if at a wedding, or generally against tanned legs.
  3. Drum loop black suede court shoe. Clarks £49.99. These are really versatile and as well as being in half sizes and cushioned soles, they come in normal and wide fittings. Perfect with your LBD but will go with just about ANYTHING after Christmas.

  1. Martha diamante embellished ballerina pump. Dune £75. Comes in black, beige and a royal blue, all of which seem to have been reduced. Available on Amazon, House of Fraser and Debenhams. I don’t need to say how versatile these little pumps will be. You can even stick them in a drawstring bag, and change half way through the evening if your feet are sore in your heels.
  2. Arabella black suede court shoe. Carvela. Reduced to £39 from £85. Available in department stores too. Very versatile, with the gold adding a touch on bling, but still very subtle.

Remember – there’s murder on the dance floor – but let hope it’s not your feet killing you…
