"I mean, seriously, how often do you really look at a mans shoes?" (Read 411 times)

    Looking for a pair of lace-up shoes to wear at work (office environment), a soft shoe, low heel.

     

    Basically, as close to a running shoe as possible, all black.  In the best case scenario, I get away with wearing sneakers at work.

     

    I used to wear these, but they are now up from 75 bucks to 135 bucks.  I am not sure they are that is the best value.

      All the time.

      Runners run.

        Figured. Maybe I'll just suck it up.

          Nice job on the title, Nader.

           

          I wear Merrill Tough Gloves.  No they are not cheap but I am approaching 2 years on my current pair.  Probably one more and the toe will be too scuffed for work; 3 years of 5 day/week wear is not bad even for their $100+ price.  I can't imagine you will find a lower heel that will pass in a business casual environment.

            Good look, spaniel. I'll check them out.

              I got some from The Walking Company that I really like. Can't remember what they cost, but they're good and they last.

                I used to wear grown up shoes but since I injured myself 2 years ago I now spend 97% of my shod life in running shoes. I just told the folks at work it's healthier for me. I wear lot's of bright colors. Of course, our standards are low. We work with designers. You should see how they dress. I can name various dudes who wear purple scarves in the summer...

                  So you're saying purple is not a summer color?

                    You got me. I mean, geeeze. I never get to wear my purple running skirt because it's too cold in the winter and in the summer .... well, you know. Thank goodness for tights. Plenty of purple there.

                      How are you going to know how big his feet are if you don't look at his shoes?

                        I think it depends on your company's standards. the shoe in the original post looks like a dress shoe, very nice, acceptable for business.

                         

                        do you interact with customers? How do others dress?

                         

                        where I work, people dress depending on what they do. An IT professional working at a lab can wear sneakers and jeans almost every day. Management who work in the office wear shirt, tie, dress shoes, etc. If any of the people wearing shirts and ties tried to wear something like a black sneaker, it would be obvious IMO. They are not fooling anyone. They're not going to get written up or anything, though.

                          um, that IS a running shoe...

                            Check out Keens.  They have a couple of casual styles that you could probably get away with if your office is on the laid-back side.  That's all my DH will wear, nowadays.

                              I may wear these at work this summer.

                                I wear these guys when the outfit calls for black:
