The Ultimate Business Shoes Guide For Traveling
Best Business Shoes for Men
Lenox Hill Cap Toe Oxford Cole Haan
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “I’ve owned Cole Haan shoes before but as i’ve gotten older and been in more casual work environments, i’ve gotten use to more arch supporting walking shoes. However, when i saw this sale on these Lenox Hill Cole Haan’s, I had to give them a try.
- First, they are stylish. I like the look of lace-up shoes . . . much more classy than slip ons.
- Second, they feel solid and well built. Have only just had them a couple of days, but I am looking forward to wearing them.
- Third, they are a name brand i can trust”
Hush Puppies Men’s Rainmaker Slip-On Loafer
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “My husband loves these shoes. They look great, are made of quality materials, and are well-constructed. Unlike his last pair of work shoes, these were comfortable the very first time he put them on (no need to break them in). They were a little squeaky at first, but that went away pretty quickly. The fit was true to size.”
Cambridge Wingtip Oxford Cole Haan
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: ” I’ve had these shoes for a few months now and they are very comfortable. I’m a heavy set guy catching the Metro train in the D.C. area, so I have to walk to and from the training. I also work in one of those early 1900 buildings with very hard floors and long hallways, which I’m walking up and down all day, also using the steps. The small rubber areas on the bottom keep you from slipping. Despite all of this, my feet never hurt. I highly recommend these shoes for work and dress!”
Rockport Men’s Essential Details Waterproof Wingtip Oxford Shoe
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: ” These shoes are unbelievable. I’m thinking of buying two more pairs in case Rockport goes out of business. They look like normal dress shoes and very professional BUUUUUT they feel like tennis shoes. Mega comfortable and gets compliments routinely at work. This is the most comfortable dress shoes I’ve ever owned. Now that I discovered this, I will never go back. Works
Cole Haan Mens Washington Grand Laser Wingtip Oxford
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “These shoes look amazing and are very comfortable. I usually wear Allen Edmonds as I feel Cole Haan has moved too far in the active dress shoe direction for me personally. These Washington Grands caught my interest so I bought the BritTan and Black with matching belts and haven’t regretted it. Hope they bring back styles like this.”
Samuel Hubbard Mens Tipping Point Oxford
My Review: ” Two words to describe this oxford from Samuel Hubbard: classic and sturdy (the two traits you definitely want in a quality shoe). Plus, the Vibram Morflex rubber sole and the memory-foam insole will keep your feet happy for hours on end. I love these shoes, and when I am racing from one delayed flight to a next, I forget they are dress shoes”
Best Business Shoes for Women
It doesn’t matter if you’re going to a work conference, wedding, funeral, or first date, each shoe style perfectly balances the right amount of style, formality, and comfort.
Blondo Women’s Villa Waterproof Ankle Bootie
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: ” I wore these boots all across Europe! They were very comfortable to walk in all day, more comfortable than the Tieks and Skechers that I also purchased for the trip. Several days were rainy, the boots got wet, my feet did not! The boots dried nicely, and looked brand new.”
Cole Haan Women’s Dawna Grd Pump
Leather and patent upper with
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “The style of these shoes look awesome once they are on your feet. Great for wearing often and even for traveling in. I really love them!”
Nine West Able Platform Slingback
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “These are super cute and so sexy. Especially if wearing heals is difficult, like it is for me. It has a high enough heel to be cute, but the platform makes the stress and angle of your ankle less and thus less pain. I’m not saying they are super comfy because they could use some more padding, but for a fashion shoe (an not a comfort brand), they are pretty comfortable. I didn’t have to go a size up though because they are not that wide in the toe.”
Nordstrom Review: “I have only worn these heels about 4 times but so far, they have been great. The first time I wore them there was no break in period at all. These heels are very comfortable (for heels) and feel sturdy when walking. I have not experienced any wobbling like other heels. The height is perfect for wearing them with my work outfits. Even though they are a basic black pump, I have gotten compliments when wearing them. Since I have never owned any shoes by this brand, I hope they hold up under daily wear.”
Cole Haan Women’s Zerogrand Stagedoor Stud Ballet Flat
Business Shoes Guide Amazon Review: “Very comfortable sole. Took one work day to break them in and now they fit very well. I wear them for 14 hours straight and walk all around Manhattan in them with no problems. Worth the investment!
I used to buy several pairs of cheap flats, but this ends up saving you money, band-aids, and blisters. Will likely get in another color.”
