I love my Sketchers so comfortable BUT I struggle to look good when wearing them with ankle high trousers etc. I have the lace up type and was thinking of buying a ballet pump style but Sketchers don’t seem to have them this year, the only ones I can find have a high front. Anyone got any suggestions. They are too expensive to make a wrong purchase!

Realise my spelling is wrong should read Skechers ....

Just bought a pair of Skechers Go Walk ‘Joy’ a pull on ( no laces) which look fine with pedal pusher type trousers.
I bought in navy blue, they go with everything!

Have you tried Fitflops? Sooo comfortable and a big range of styles.

I swear by my Skechers and actually find little problem with ankle length trousers............having said that I bought a pair without laces by Gabor........more expensive (in white with gold)..........and they look even better.
However surely it must simply be down to choice and how each one of us may feel whilst wearing this case Skechers.
Hope you find THE answer.

Go walk no laces styles work well with pedal pusher/ cut off trousers etc. Ballet pump type are still on Amazon I think

Sports Direct have plenty of ballet pump styles in various colours, some examples pictured below. With SD you have the benefit of trying them on if you have a local store. Otherwise they are efficient on line.

As I'm prone to tripping and falling my lace-up Skechers give extra firmness and support outside. I wear the slipons in the house.
Safety is the main thing for me (fingers crossed, PG etc.)
And you don't need to spend a fortune on them. My most-used lace-ups cost 24 euro.

Thank you all for your comments. Shysal I will definitely visit SD!

I didn't realise that you shouldn't wear lace-ups with ankle-high trousers.

Ah well, there's just no hope that I will ever look good grin

Have a look at Pavers. I have ridiculously tender feet and Pavers work for me.
