Hiya,

Would somebody mind confirming for me that outdoor shoes for Mixed Fleet can now have a heel height of 3 inches?
I saw Little Minx said this last year but I just wanted to check it hasn't changed again?
Also that nearly black tights are the only colour allowed? No tan?

Thanks very much :) xx

Yeah its deifinitely 3inches for ground shoes. However my previous work shoes are 1.5 inches at their highest and are none slip and super comfy. I'm looking at the uniform standards as we speak and it says 'we recommend a heel heigh of no more than 1inch' for cabin shoes, whereas with the ground shoes it says 'with a maximum heel height of no more than 3 inches'. Does the term recommend mean there is a degree of flexibility there or should I just go out and buy new ones, Its just such a nightmare getting shoes as I have really small feet, so ordering online isnt an option and childrens shoes seem to insist on coming with a some kind of pattern on the shoe or a strap fastening of some kind, very frustrating.
*the zip wont close on my handbag, so I buy a bigger bag...unfortunatley then I had more space so bought more stuff...back to the zipper problem*

I have just brought these pairs of shoes and wanted to check if they would be okay for cabin and walking shoes. It would be greatly appreciated

Hello everyone,

I was wondering what the standards where for the shoes besides them having to be a certain height? Like what kind of material etc? I am having an exceptionally hard time finding fitting shoes since my feet are extremely narrow. I have ordered tons online but had to send them all back :( Any advice would be highly appreciated. xx

I found these, and was wondering if the border around the front is allowed?

Hi sidney!
I don't work for BA (Yet, I am waiting for my training date )
But I don't think those shoes will be valid, as that border makes them look less smart and less business attire.
If you are having trouble finding shoes, try othopedics stores, most of them usually make that type of black leather work shoes, and they have narrow fit.
My feet are also narrow and thin, and if I want to wear cute crew shoes I know they will be a little loose, and won't adjust so well to my feet but you get used to it.
For the onboard flats it's easier to find solutions.
There are many many options in online stores in the US, maybe it's worth checking out.
Good luck!

Forgot to tell you...
I don't know about the BA standard, but for most airlines around the globe it's black and completely plain leather.
No seams or trimmings.
Discreet and comfortable heel (No stilettos, no plattforms)
