    Try and find something with a rounder toe.
    I agree it's way too pointy, zara has some pretty good ones (but what do I know?)

    You're working in an office not on a catwalk.

    I don't like either. I would go for a more classic shoe, like the one below, especially for the office.

    (Now I realize that Allen Edmonds is probably too expensive, but it will give you a sense of what you should be looking for IMO)

    Allen Edmonds looks good, but with the price of the RI/Next shoes around the £40-£50 mark I think Zara seems more realistic.

    I don't understand why people would wear pointy shoes in the first place. :dontknow:

    That's true. I just wanted to give him a direction what he should be looking for. There are plenty of brands that make cheaper shoes. However, if he doesn't even know what he is looking for he will be lost and is gonna end up with the shoes he posted .

    I must confess I have one pair of pointy shoes - from a few years ago, when I was as inexperienced. I haven't worn them in ages, biggest waste of money ever.

    That would be a tragedy. OP, go for some nice Oxfords. They're practical, versatile and likely more durable than the ones you posted. And on top of that they're definitely the smartest shoes for the workplace. Say no to Winklepickers!

    Haha oh dear, we'll just put it down to everyone going a little crazy when they were a teenager
