The Commuting Shoe Debate: Is There Really Even A Debate Anymore?

Women. We do it all! Raise families, work full-time, look beautiful, get degrees, win Olympics, etc. Can we be real though? How the hell are we expected to get from all the A’s to B’s in high heels?

Why should women be expected to mangle their feet on a daily basis? Heels look fantastic yes, but is this a realistic expectation in the modern age where women are doing much more than just throwing cocktail parties at home with cocktail weenies and highballs?

I don’t pretend to have the most fashionable foot game. Typically, unless I’m taking a Lyft or going somewhere that requires minimal walking and standing, I’m not wearing heels. Instead, I opt for Nikes, Vans, Converse sneakers, or maybe a chunky, low heeled boot if I’m feeling perky or going on a date after work.

Otherwise, forget it! I spent my college years ravaging my poor feet in too tiny, too tall high heels, baby giraffing all around campus.

If men get to wear flat shoes with impunity, then so should we! So here are some dream commuting sneaks for your consideration. Comfort doesn’t have to be ugly like Balenciaga x Crocs, okay?

For The Minimalist Queen

Sure, they’re not the cheapest option, but Vince Women’s Warren Suede Platform Slip-On Sneakers in Hydrangea Pink would pair so well with nice jeans, work pants or even a cute sundress. The luxe suede comes in other colors, but I felt this color was very appropriate for spring!

For The Throwback Diva

Keds Triple Kick Canvas in White – I’ll admit, I recently purchased these babies. Yes, they are Keds. Yes, they are platform. And you know, what? They’re everything, mama! Never hate on nostalgic dressing because it will literally come back and haunt you!

For The Hipster Cutie

As already mentioned, I’m a big fan of Vans, but have been noticing these Vans Ward Lo Sneaker – Women’s in Burgundy popping up. I love them! Simple, but edgy. Burgundy is also a unique color that is more versatile than one might think…

For The Glam Lady

PUMA Women’s Basket Glitter Lace Up Platform Sneakers are perfect for women looking to make an extra sparkly statement without sacrificing their little piggies in 5″ stilettos.
