FUNKY WORK-APPROPO SHOES FOR THE FLAT ENTHUSIAST
Heels hurt–there is no way around it and quite frankly, it's hard to convince me otherwise. When you work or intern in the fashion and communication fields, calm and routine days are not anywhere in the job description. In fact, a good part of your day is dedicated to market appointments, runs, events or maneuvering around sets. As you might imagine, comfort is an important part of assuring the aforementioned run smoothly–or at least as smooth as possible, considering the unpredictability of each industry.
I truly commend the superwomen that can wear heels everyday. If one of you majestic gals are reading this, kudos to you. But if you're like me and many of my work counterparts, flats shoes–oxfords, loafers, mules–are your almighty savior. Don't get me wrong, there are thousands of beautiful sky-high pumps out there that I dream of pairing with a few things in my wardrobe. That is, until an ankle breaking nightmare follows. However, many brands have taken the initiative to create a bevy of aesthetically brilliant flat shoes that you can wear to work and beyond. Dare I say I may never buy a heel again?
