One thing I found out very quickly with the line of work I started a couple of years ago is that my high heels were useless. Standing on a concrete floor all day, and walking through the building in heels just wasn't going to fly. I'd leave with my feet aching to the point where I would get home, make dinner and just want to go to sleep. That kind of life was not for me, but what to do? Thankfully it was an easy fix, or so I thought...switch to flats, which I did, but still ended up with such achy tootsies. We have to wear dress clothes, it's not optional. Now I had a dilemma. You can't wear athletic shoes with trousers. Enter Lugz and their new Women's Clipper Oxford shoes that are just sporty enough to pass for athletic wear on the weekend, and just dressy enough to pass for 'dress' shoes at my job!! I've been wearing these and no one has said a word about them breaking dress code, and at the end of the day my feet really do feel fine (whew).
In this picture, you can see the stretchy elastic gore on the 'tongue' portion of the shoe. This makes slipping these shoes on and off an absolute breeze. It also means less stress on my feet while I'm wearing them. The insoles are padded and the bottoms do have nice traction (important on slippery floors or surfaces). I couldn't be happier with these shoes that you can wear almost anywhere and still have happy feet by the end of the day.
There's a Giveaway!
