Comfortable shoes (particularly heels!)

We’ve heard from numerous women about the everlasting struggle to look professional, fashionable, AND stay comfortable while on your feet at work.  Serving multiple purposes — allowing us to run from meeting to meeting, commute by foot, and add the final stylish touch to an outfit — comfortable shoes are obviously of utmost importance!

This week,  Corporette, “a fashion and lifestyle blog for overachieving chicks”, wrote a piece highlighting shoes that enable standing on your feet for hours.  We couldn’t resist sharing it with you.  Not only does she provide her own advice on comfortable footwear, but there are nearly 50 commenters who chimed in with their own thoughts too!

A sneak peek of what’s included in the post:
