Please can shoe-shoppers help me find a nice pair of Mary Janes/Court shoes?

Found 17th AprEdited by:"squiff"
Hi again,

I'm trying in vain to find a pair of Mary Janes that I like. They MUST be black, have a low or flat heel and MUST have a strap across the top of the foot. I'm in my 30s so I don't like styles aimed at older people or young children. I'm a ladies size 8. Patent would be a bonus but not necessary. Budget upto £45.

I've tried Next, Dorothy Perkins, Amazon, eBay, Topshop, Clarks, Debenhams and New Look.

Many, many thanks in advance for anyone who has time to look and share links or photos. Thank you.

This is roughly the kind of thing I'm after but this height of heel would be a maximum pavers.co.uk/col…735

Yes, those are lovely but the heel is too high unfortunately. Thank you for taking the time to look, Chuckiedoll.

It does. I have two problems - firstly I had surgery on my ankle ten years ago and can no longer wear heels, and secondly I've been in hospital for four months, during which time I lost the ability to move and had to learn to walk again, so I'm not steady enough on my feet for heels anyway. I do love that first pair though!

Thanks Chuckiedoll. Those are really nice - I've bookmarked them.

Thanks for the three links Cecil! The first pair are a bit too school-like. The Aisun MJs have two straps, which I'd find too fiddly, but they are nice. Thanks for the third link too - I was hoping for a pair this week or next but I'll have a look on the Amazon.de site and see what I can find. Thanks again

I'm N.Ireland and normally find anything from Amazon.de arrives here in three to four days...only 1 day longer than normal Amazon Prime for myself. Actually just had an order delivered from Amazon.com (US site) in 6 days from ordering even though they had said 3 weeks!
Try also on amazon.de Demonia Mary Jane's....rather gothic/alt styles, off course you can ignore all the platform ones they do flats also!

Chuckiedoll, I ordered these last night but a closer look at the photo reveals something quite bizarre. Is there a button or other closure missing from the photos, do you think?

Thanks so much Cecil. I ordered a pair that Chuckiedoll posted a link to the other day and providing I'm happy with them when they come, I shouldn't be needing a second pair. That said, I'll have a look on the other Amazon sites. Thank you for the links!

Hmmm, I see what you mean. Bit of an odd closure there.
