Default School shoes

I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions...

Well my school has us wearing uniform, and 'school shoes'. Thing is, I always have and always will hate school shoes. Mainly because i feel I do not have so much movement in my toes like in running shoes, or more-so feiyues.

Flat-base trainers really aren't great either, they're not my favourite things in the world.. and I do a lot of training barefoot and i recently got feiyues, and when I put on school shoes it just screws with everything; sometimes I feel pain here and there and they mess with my general walking. but most of all I just love walking and running when I feel i can use my toes.. Ofcourse it would also be pretty good to be able to jump around at school I guess.

So, has anybody seen any shoes that you think I could get away with? They obviously have to be black, and I guess generally leather. Or just 'school shoes' that are generally more comftable than others.


Thanks all
