Sadly for the busiest of mums, style is often forced to take a backseat to comfort when shopping for footwear. Practicality is key, however when it comes to womens shoes for the colder months ahead, even fashionable footwear can still support a mum who constantly has to be on her feet. If you’re in search of the right balance of style and comfort, take a peek at Next UK for a great selection of womens shoes for the autumn and winter. For mums who need a gentle nudge in the right direction, here are the top 5 shoe styles all mums should have in her wardrobe:
1. Ballet Flats
The ultimate in practicality, every mum should own at least one pair of ballet flats. With no heels to worry about, these stylish womens shoes are easy on eyes as well on the feet and back. Though they are a wardrobe staple, it doesn’t mean they have to be plain or simple. The Leopard Print Asymmetric Point Ballerinas (pictured) from Next literally make the point apparent. The gorgeous animal print and unusual design demonstrate the range of styles available for a ballerina flat.

2. Flat Fashion Boots
Indisputably, autumn is the season of the boot. Busy mums can keep their feet dry and fashionable in a pair of flat leather boots. Get some boots made for walking (and running after toddlers!) like celeb mum Gwen Stefani.
3. Trainers With a Twist
For mums who are constantly on their feet, trainers tend to be the go to choice. Luckily no other footwear choice could be more practical or on trend. This season has seen a great vogue for sporty kicks following the great success of the Summer 2012 Olympics. Not all fashion trainers are created equal, so if you’re feeling glam, go for a pair of glittery high tops.
A snug pair of fur-lined slippers is the comfort wear of choice for those priceless, quiet moments and a bit of mummy me-time. As the mornings and nights grow colder, warm slippers will surely become indispensible.
5. Feel Good Heels
Even the busiest of mums need a show stopping pair of heels for no other reason than for their feel-good factor. Practicality counts for little on a great girl’s night out, so be sure to keep at least one pair of killer heels on hand.
