Anyone who’s on their feet all day at work knows that comfortable shoes are key—especially if you want to make it to the end of the day sans blisters and achy arches. I’ll be the first to admit that I tend opt for style over comfort, but what if we could have the best of both worlds, aka chic shoes that provide comfort and support?
We tapped into Jason Beckley, chief brand officer of Clarks, for insights into what we should be looking for. “A proper fit is paramount in any environment where you’re standing for long periods. Our Unstructured line offers a range of width fittings in addition to extensive half sizes to make sure that our shoes have the most accurate fit for a full day of varied movement and activity.
“The shoes provide all-day comfort for maximized well-being: ultra-soft underfoot cushioning for shock-absorption protects the foot and joints, flexibility within the shoe allows for maximized natural movement, anti-friction linings prevent any irritation, and leather insoles that shape to the foot add more personalized comfort.”
So for those of you who work long hours and are on your feet all day, this one’s for you! Whether you’re looking for a style that’s more polished or you can sneakers at your workplace, scroll below for the must-have shoes that combine comfort and style.
