Being a #GirlBoss in the workforce is not easy there’s no doubt about that. As a #WRITTENWoman, it is important we are always putting our best foot forward…but the thought of not having comfortable heels…makes us cringe.
While heels can be a girl’s best friend for the added height we love or the leg lengthening effect they provide (especially when paired with a pencil skirt). They can also be our be worst enemy. On those long days at the office or treks from terminal to terminal…it can be painful. 8+ hours in some high heels can seem like some form of deranged torture at times so we asked the question: Can high heels and comfortable heels coexist?
While the combination of sneakers and pencil skirts are super fabulous and highly on trend at the moment, not every professional setting allows for this so truth be known, you will always need a trusty pair of comfortable heels in your wardrobe.
Here are our top 6 picks for the most comfortable heels you need:
Shopping tip for comfortable heels:
While buying to save money is great, when it comes to heels…cheap can mean pain. Heels last a very long time if you wear them carefully and take care of them correctly. Look at higher end brands to make sure you will be wearing comfortable shoes throughout your day.
Leather Mid-Heel Pump from Gucci
To begin, my first pick is this Patent Leather Mid Heel Pump from Gucci. Since it is a chunky and short heel, it won’t be so strenuous on your feet and legs throughout the day. I love the femininity of the white leather this heel has and can bring to a look. The floral print leather lining is also an elegant feature to the shoe.
Traci from Donald Pliner
This second heel, Traci by Donald Pliner, is a great heel for the office. Looking for comfortable heels and style? This shoe is for you. Traci has a fabulous snakeskin skinny heel for style. It also has the comfort element as well. With the smaller heel, this shoe is great for a woman who is on-the-go. This heel comes to us all the way from Spain. What comfort does this heel have? The entire shoe is covered with its amazing padded leather lining. It also has a buffered leather sole to give your foot a boost after a long day.
Panelled Pump from Marni
This heel is perfect for an on-the-go woman, who has an eye and love for detail. This small heel is a wonderful option for us ladies who don’t feel comfortable wearing tall, tall heels. The Panelled Pump by Marni brings 100% Italian leather right to the bottom of your feet and surrounds your entire foot. Comfort is this heel’s middle name.
Pigalle Plato from Louboutin
Every woman needs the Pigalle Plato classic black heel in their wardrobe. Thanks to Louboutin, we have a bold heel to match our work ethic. As you put on your favorite WRITTEN skirt for the day, pair it with this heel and not only your style will exude confidence but it will show in your work as well. Yes, this heel is high, but the leather sole and the addition of the slender platform was created for extra comfort.
Therese Pump from Tory Burch
Looking for elegance? Tory Burch is the shoe designer you need. The Therese Pump is a round heel, but with a loud personality. Having a nude, muted heel in your wardrobe is a must. The classic colors of dust, black, navy, and red will pair with your favorite WRITTEN skirt and several other of your favorite office looks. It is a perfect middle ground between a heel and a flat.
Norah Chain Heel Bootie from Calvin Klein
Last but not least, a different type of heel from Calvin Klein to shake things up. This Norah Chain Heel Bootie is a fun, thick heel to transition from summer to fall. While you might not need to be dressed up every day, this boot heel would be a great fit with jeans on Friday or to make a look slightly more casual. This heel was made from a smooth leather and has an adjustable strap to make the fit just right for you. With the open toe and the strap in the back, this shoe is casual and comfortable all in one.
Every one of these heels is reliable, comfortable, and very stylish. Time to show your office your inner fashionista, but in comfort.
