The Best Shoes to Wear in the Workplace

When assembling your outfits for work, you may obsess over the perfect blouses and bottoms; however, don't forget about one of the most important (yet often overlooked) pieces of your ensemble. Your dress shoes. 

Selecting the proper footwear for the workplace is critical to your comfort and confidence; in fact, wearing the wrong pair can make the work day feel much longer. At Vaila Shoes, we provide chic, work-appropriate shoes that grant long-lasting comfort. Most importantly, our shoes are for ladies with extended shoe sizes of 9-14. So, whether you work in a corporate office or a creative field, we have the right shoe to help every woman step into any setting with unfailing confidence.

  • A Neutral Pump

  • For those of you who pride yourself on a timeless style, our Jane Pump allows you to achieve a classy appearance you’ll love. Crafted from luxe of patent leather, they feel as good as they look, providing endless comfort for those long hours. Meanwhile, the clear PVC adds a subtle twist to this elegant shoe that is sure to become a staple in your weekly rotation. 

    Plus, if you’re one who dreads putting an outfit together in the mornings on little sleep, this versatile pair complements anything in your closet. With these pumps, your high-waisted trousers, brightly colored blouses, and slinky pencil skirts are all fair game. 

  • Subtle, Sophisticated Straps

  • Our Renee Slingback erases any bad experiences you’ve had with strappy sandals (e.g., straps that painfully dig into your skin). They feature two thin back ankle straps that keeps your feet secure all day, so you never have to worry about your shoe sliding off in the middle of a presentation. 

    In addition, the luxurious black suede material and color-blocking style lends a modern touch to your look. Pair these must-have sandals with your favorite workwear pieces and watch them transform your ensembles.  

  • Sleek Slip-On Sandals

  • If you don’t like to fuss with clasps, our Frida Sandal is the perfect shoe for you. Like the Renee Slingback Pumps, they feature a luxurious soft suede color-block pattern; however, they stand out for their superior convenience and versatility, securing a permanent spot in your workwear collection.

    The cushioned footbed provides much-needed comfort, while the 3.8-inch heel grants you a decent amount of height that instantly elevates your look. Simply slip them on with your go-to trousers and head out the door. These sandals are perfect for Casual Fridays at the Workplace. 

  • White Pumps

  • Looking to add a pop of color to your work wardrobe? The Myra Pump comes in a beautiful white shade in an ultra-glossy finish and a red sole that adds a subtly sexy touch, while the slingback silhouette cradles your heel for a barely-there feeling your feet will greatly appreciate. Additionally, their versatility allows you to wear them year-round for work and after-work drinks with your colleagues. 


    Finding the right shoes for your nine-to-five doesn’t have to be a guessing game you dread playing every morning before work. With Vaila Shoes, you can rest assured that your comfort, style, and size will be protected. So browse our collection and prepare to wow your coworkers with your undeniable confidence.
