25 Comfortable Shoes for Work

25 Comfortable Shoes for Work

If you’re like me, you have plenty of horror stories detailing the pain and suffering inflicted upon you by your most beloved shoes. High heels aren’t the only culprit — poorly made ballet flats can be just as dreadful as a skyscraping stiletto.

Brands like Easy Spirit, Naturalizer, Geox, and Clarks used to get a bad rap when it came to style but high marks for comfort and wearability. Thankfully, the former is changing. By incorporating innovative technologies that let feet breathe and move naturally, these brands (and others following in their comfy footsteps) have created some of the chicest styles of the season. Here are some of our pain- and blister-free favorites.
