Sandals are a firm favorite in terms of comfort. It’s important to know what sandal suits what occasion, rocking up to the office in a flip-flop is a no go. A sturdier flat or mid heel sandal is more suited to your 9 – 5 look. Heeled sandals are perfect for dressy summer events, making whatever you wear have a more delicate and feminine feel. This diverse shoe will look great with jeans or a summer dress.
Block Heel Ankle Boots
The perfect ankle boot shout have a heel height that is comfortable for your to be able to sport all day or night. Block heel ankle boots are ideal as the thicker heel gives you a sturdier stance. They are ideal for winter with jeans or a dress and tights.

This is a shoe that looks great in just about every material. Leather are ideal for rainy days and are easy to wipe clean. Suede and velvet options require a little more care but are so worth it – nothing a little suede protector spray can’t solve. Opting for a bolder color will also make you stand out from the crowd.
The ballet flat comes in such a wide range of colors and patterns, there really is one for
everyone – whatever your style. They are the go-to for a classic yet comfortable look. Simplicity is key with these shoes, leaving your outfit to do the talking. They can be worn with just about anything so feel free to get creative, maybe with some bejewelled shoes, for example. They can be bought on a budget – but don’t expect them to last forever.
The black stiletto pump is a timeless shoe that can adapt to a range of occasions. Whether
you’ve got an important meeting or you’re attending a party – these are the perfect choice. The simple black color goes with anything and can be dressed down with jeans or glammed up with a dress, either way they remain an elegant addition to any outfit. It is essential to get a pair that fit right and will last accordingly (scuffing and heel snapping nightmares are to be avoided at all costs).
For someone who is on the go and likes to be comfortable, white trainers are a wardrobe
essential. There are no longer strict fashion rules that apply to trainers – anything goes.
