What kind of shoes would you wear with these?
I have long legs so I have to have long length jeans- I wear skecher's with these but I feel like it looks frumpy? What do you think?
What type of shoes do you all wear with jeans like this? I'm with kids all day for work/on my feet- so high heels are definitely out of the question. I want to look trendy and nice (not frumpy) but also have to be comfortable for all day wear.

Depends on the season.

In winter I'd wear high heeled boots with those jeans. In summer, sandals with some heel. I also have a pair of high, rubber bottom mules I wear a lot that are really comfortable and look nice.

If you're over the age of 15 Sketchers don't go with anything. Ever.

If you are on your feet all day, I'd wear a cute loafer with a good arch support. I especially like the new brightly colored flats with a little buckle on the toe when worn with a top or sweater in a matching color.

You could try some Clark's shoes.

I don't really know women's shoes, but I don't doubt that they make dressy shoes that are flats. One girlfriend I had easily had 30 pairs of shoes in her closet--but almost always wore sneakers.

allstar (dark blue) for every day. love these jeans.
you sound like you need flats too. sam edelman makes fantastic ones. you can find those even at marshalls for very cheap price. get creative with color, green, brown, black, whatever.
for winter, i'd wear flat boots (enzo angelini makes comfy ones).
those jeans go with everything. they look marvelous.

I would wear some fasionable clogs with a little heal. High Heels would make the jeans look hookerish

Sketchers does make some really cute slip-on casual shoes that look a little less like an athletic shoe. If you're minding kids, having slip-ons is a handy and practical thing.

I don't agree with azoria about the age limitation on Sketchers. Don't get too uptight about target marketing. As they say, if the shoe fits, wear it!

Avoid chunky shoes. (some sketchers are like this but not all) Its just too much puff going on in the foot area and it will shorten your leg.

just some options:
Privo Jerrie at Zappos.com

these would be so cute in red if you have little feet or if the pant covers enough of the shoe:
Blowfish Standby at Zappos.com (http://www.zappos.com/product/7575805/color/2529 - broken link)

also cute:
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa Ultra Flat at Zappos.com

classic & simple:
Earth Solar at Zappos.com

(they look really comfy too!)

I disagree with the comment about Sketchers - I've seen their shoe lines and they make styles that are simliar to many other companies that target all ages. The biggest problem I have with their shoes is that the support is not great, and I don't like the name plastered on the side of my shoe (they do this with many of their shoes).

There are an endless amount of styles you could pick from. I did a quick shuffle through Zappos and found these - they all should be comfortable for all day wear.

These are cute and look similar to a pair that I have - and I wear them all day long.
Sudini Katrina at Zappos.com

You can't beat Naturalizer for comfort - I have about 10 pair of their shoes! I really like these...I might order them!
Naturalizer Cordo at Zappos.com

Naturalizer Commerce at Zappos.com

I have these shoes, and I can't say enough about them. I bought them to take to Europe last year and wore them everywhere - they are the MOST comfortable pair of shoes I own.
