What Are Your Commuting Shoes?

Every morning, no matter how put-together our work outfit is, we almost always ruin it with our commute-friendly footwear. Right now, we’re bundling up with soft-soled tall boots (or even Uggs on the chilliest N.Y.C. days). We simply couldn’t make the trek to work any other way. Of course, once we’re there, we swap the sensible shoes for some stylish heels, but we can’t help but envy the women who seem to effortlessly wear their stilettos through their morning commute. And then there are the women, like Jessica Biel, who make flat-soled shoes look spectacular any time of day. Tell us: What kind of shoes do you wear on your commute? Do you wear your high heels? Do you change once you get into work?

LOL, SpeakEnglish, what man wears stilettos in the first place? Also, there are many women in power who wear heels, such as Condi Rice (those knee high boots of hers).

Anyway, most of the time I am wearing flats or sneakers, so driving with my stick-shift car is no problem. But when I do wear heels or platforms, I wear flip-flops.

Flat boots are my friends- and I like pairs that are stylish enough to wear to work. I’m faintly amused by the comment that implied that George Clooney doesn’t wear heels, so neither should be. No offense, but how many male actors DO wear high stilletos, at least in public?

I take offence at SpeakEnglish’s comments – many successful, intelligent women can also wear stilettos – it’s called being multi-talented :) It is not counterintuitive for a woman to be both intelligent and stylish – and heels compliment business attire much more than flats ever will. As a successful, stylish woman who does use her brains for a living, I’d like to speak out against the sort of intellectual snobbery shown by SpeakEnglish – “real women” can wear whatever makes them comfortable. And, personally, wearing heels to work makes me comfortable. The only time I trade the heels for flats is when it’s snowing, so my heels don’t get ruined.

uggs are my shoes of winter, they go with so many things and they’re super comfy. Just make sure to spray them with a water protectant first!
