Standing and walking all day long is a hazard of the job when it comes to educators and school employees. Because of that, it is critical that your shoes are high quality and give excellent support for feet and legs. That is why so many educators and school employees look for specific styles and qualities for their footwear choices.
Check out this list of top choices.
Best Footwear for Educators and School Employees
Loafers offer classic styling and can be worn with slacks and pantsuits. Wearing them with skirts and dresses that fall above your knee is not really an option. While comfortable, they do have more of a casual to semi-casual vibe.
Oxfords offer classic styling, but offer a lot less versatility within your wardrobe. They work best with pants and pantsuits. You’ll want to avoid wearing them with most skirts, dresses and business suits. While most styles are comfortable, they’re more for a casual style.
Clogs offer classic styling and can be a workhorse in your wardrobe. The majority of clog styles can be worn with slacks, skirts, jumpsuits, pantsuits and with some styles of dresses. If you’re looking for a semi-casual appearance, go with a smooth leather. If you’re looking for a dressier appearance, try a lovely patent-leather.
Ballet Flats offer classic styling, but are usually not built for comfort. If you select ballet flats, make sure they have memory foam insoles and sit a little bit off of the ground. A complete flat-sole will offer very limited comfort, when you’re standing on your feet all day. They can be worn with most fashions in your wardrobe.
Kitten Heels offer a classic styling with a 1″ to 1 3/4″ heel. They’re style just like a high-heel pump, but with a smaller heel. They’re designed more for the woman who is on her feet most of the day and needs a dressier style of shoe for the workplace. They can be worn with most fashions in your wardrobe.
This is just a sampling of choices that would be a great option for educators. Lower heeled boots or booties could be an option as would clog boots.
