I’ve been doing a fair bit of career wear shoe shopping with clients lately, and their feelings are unanimous. Comfort is key, modern classics rule, and there is little tolerance for trendy footwear that is unkind to their feet. Many seemed to have bought footwear last year that looked fashionable and ultra gorgeous, but didn’t go the distance. NO MORE. 

I very much understand the need for extra comfortable shoes because I too battle to find dressier styles that I can walk in for miles. You can’t wear sneakers and casual sandals when your dress code is business formal, business casual or smart casual, so you might have to compromise a little on “trendy aesthetics” to get happy feet. 

Here’s a selection of comfortable office footwear across a range of price points. Most styles have been tried and tested on clients. Some of the styles are repeats from last year, they are that good. Of course some styles are more comfortable than others. Some styles are less dressy because I’ve included footwear for “Casual Fridays”. There are colour options for each style so make sure you browse the links. Grab those fabulous low block heels while you can. 

You can see my descriptions alongside the items on the collection page.
