Sometimes, being a woman is anything but comfortable. Wearing your pumps on your daily commute not only takes a toll on your poor feet, but also shortens the life of your favorite work heels. We’ve put together commuter shoe options that still look professional and put-together while allowing you to save your feet and your heels!
1. Smart Loafers
It’s hard to beat a classic. A leather pair of loafers won’t take away from your professional attire, will stand up to the most lengthy commutes and easily slip on and off when you need a quick change into pumps.
2. Elevated Sneakers
We’ve all seen it. Someone on their way home in their pencil skirt, stockings and a clunky pair of white trainers. If you love the comfort of a sneaker, but want something a little more business casual and a little less “locker room chic”, opt for a sneaker in a luxe suede or leather or in a rich print. Embellished fashion sneakers always add flair to any outfit.
3. The Ballet Flat
A perfectly feminine choice for a commuter shoe is the ballet flat. Ballet flats are easy to slip on and off and oh so comfortable, all whilst maintain the style of your outfit. With so many different styles out there, you’re sure to find a pair in your favorite color, print or material. Finding a quality pair with a more durable rubber or leather sole last longer than a cheaply made pair.
4. The Weather Proof Bootie
April showers bring may flowers, right? Spring is an unpredictable time of year as far as weather goes and it’s nice to have a pair of weatherproof shoes that you can wear trudging through puddles and wet streets as you commute! Try a pair with luxe details like buckles or a standout print for a unique look.
