Born shoes. Born brand shoes are great for comfort but what is even better is that they are almost always hip and trendy. Our favorite flats from the company are their “Julianne” flats. Although they are a bit pricey, $90.00 for a pair of ballet flats, these shoes are worth the investment. If you are standing on your feet for the majority of your work day, then shoes are definitely a staple you should feel good splurging on. In addition, these flats are equipped with the signature Born padded foot bed, as well as a composite shank that gives you extra arch support and stability.

Alegria shoes. Alegria shoes are great for walking and comfort. Almost all Alegria shoes have has a generous toe box, which reduces metatarsal pressure and overall foot fatigue. Many of their shoes resemble the classic Dansko clog look, however they offer many styles of shoes. Our favorite from their collection is the “Bree Stonewell” oxford. The slim silhouette of these shoes helps them go unnoticed, so you can avoid the fear of looking too orthopedic. In addition, the oxford style pairs great with anything from cuffed boyfriends jeans to a summer dress. No matter what you wear them with, we are sure you will love your Alegria oxfords. The shoes will set you back $120, but the comfort is well worth the price tag.

Matiko shoes. Matiko shoes are made primarily for their aesthetic appeal, and they are very appealing indeed. Funky, fresh, and chic, but what we love about them is that they happen to be extremely comfortable as well. Their “Lilo” Suede loafers are a great option to wear to work because they are the perfect combination of professional and fun. The soft leather sole is super comfortable, and the perforated suede upper will keep your feet dry and sweat free. At $120, they are the same price as the Alegria oxfords above.

 

 

Depending on where you work your choice of footwear will vary. Some will need more cushion and arch support while for other people fashion will be much more vital. Regardless of your situation, we are confident that you will find something you like to keep you looking good and feeling comfortable with our brands above.
