The Best Shoes for Work

the best shoes for work, the best heels to wear to work

Happy Wednesday! Today’s Work Wear Wednesday post is all about the best shoes for work. I am so excited about the WWW series and I hope you are too! I know you love seeing me in every day outfits, but business casual is honestly what I am wearing 40 hours a week. Is anyone else’s garage a mile away?  I literally walk a mile to my office everyday to where I park downtown. In order to do this, I have to have some pretty comfortable shoes. These Louise et Cie pumps are so amazing that I now own them in 3 colors!

When it comes to heels for work I always look for three things:

  1. Heel Height: I am 5’11, so 4″ is too tall for me. 3 1/2 is jusssssttt right. This heel height is also SUPER professional for work. I think this height is also pretty comfortable no matter what type of heel the shoe has.
  2.  Comfort: Most heels I buy are for work, so comfort is a huge consideration for me. When I find shoes I think are cute, I immediately look at reviews. If you see one or two bad ones that is normal, but three or more about the shoe being uncomfortable is a RED FLAG. These Louise et Cie pumps are the best shoes for work because I can wear them ALL DAY LONG and not even think about them. When you don’t realize you are wearing heeels, you know you have found the perfect pair!
  3. Color: When I buy heels I want to make sure I am buying a color that I can wear with multiple things. Picture at least 4 things you own and wear in your head that will go with that color before you buy the heel. Heels are an investment, so you want to spend your money on the RIGHT ones.

These Louise et Cie pumps are also super stylish and can be worn with much more than just work clothes. The tan pumps are more casual so they will be perfect for spring dresses and the red ones can add a pop of color for when you are heading out at night! I am pretty excited about my recent purchase.. the black pair. I can pretty much wear these with EVERYTHING!

For $119 these heels are a steal guys. I wouldn’t have three pairs if I didn’t believe it. They are seriously the best shoes for work, but can be worn with so much more than just your business attire. The best news? They come in NINE COLORS!!!!!! Which color should/will I buy next???

    This outfit is adorable. I really love the top. I just bought some lace up ballet flats by the same brand as your pumps and they are super comfortable. It makes me want to buy more of their products. I also spend 40 hours a week in business casual so I am super excited about your series.

    Love this series! I am ALWAYS on the hunt for good work shoes – I will definitely be checking these out! I actually did a round up a few months ago of the top 10 best shoes for work… I may have to do a new one with these added in!
