The Shoes I've Worn to Work Every Day for a Decade

The votes have been counted, and the decision is unanimous: The very best and most comfortable shoes to wear to work are favored by every single person in our office. Maybe you wear them too. Maybe you’ve been searching for this holy-grail option your entire life. Maybe we’re here to offer you the nicest versions for your workwear wardrobe in 2018. Maybe? Possibly? Definitely.

Our in-depth research (i.e., asking the team) concluded that a midi block heel is best (a little elevation without the wobble of a kitten heel), especially when rendered in suede (softest on your feet) and with some sort of ankle or Mary Jane strap (to keep your feet cosy and in place) creates the triumvirate of a successful work shoe.

It will come as no surprise that there has been a rise in this “day heel” in the retail sector: They first started to filter into the mainstream when Céline introduced glove pumps, Valentino debuted the Tango (I bought a pair in red), and cult footwear brands like Maryam Nassir Zadeh (yep, bought me some red suede sandals) and Martiniano picked up industry approval. Such was the sell-through rate that designers and brands finally started to offer more within this once-overlooked realm.

My comfy Uterqüe sandals are the perfect midi-heel option for the summer.
I always look to e-commerce site Lisa Says Gah for cool midis.
Everyone in our office wants a pair of these. Available in sizes 4.5 to 11.5.
These have a beautifully retro vibe to them—very cool with true-blue jeans. Available in sizes 37 to 40.5.
Business at the front, party at the back. Available in sizes 6.5 to 10.5.
A love-forever pair you'll wear so much. Available in sizes 35 to 42.

My current frontrunner. Available in sizes 6 to 10.

These are spectacular quality. Available in sizes 5 to 11.

Plain-but-different pumps that work with everything. Available in sizes 35 to 41.
Make a statement in these bad boys. Available in sizes 34 to 42.
If you're not bothered about faux suede, these are the #1 option. Available in sizes 5 to 11.
Leg-lengthening without needing a crazy-high heel. Available in sizes 35 to 42.

I can recall spending the first few years of my fashion career desperately seeking them to no avail—my early days were when fierce heels ruled and nothing was complete without a platform. As soon as more became available, I bought them in bulk and continue to do so, often finding a style that suits and is comfortable and then snapping them up in different colorways.

Well, that definitely helps on the “what to buy for work” front.
