When I was working in Downtown Dallas – my “go to” Shoe was what used to be called a “Stewardess Heel” – a medium heel with a closed toe- the exact style depending on what heel and toe shapes were in style that season – no straps, and always black.
Some seasons it was more comfortable than others – but generally flattering to the calf and acceptable to my company’s dress code policy.
I’ve no complaints – I had a closet full of them – I admit I am a pack rate and hate to throw anything away! But now that I get to work from my home office – I get a little more freedom. So my new, “go to” shoe is actually a bootie – still black – this time suede instead of leather – and extremely comfortable. I can wear it all day and when I take them off – my feet don’t ache – not even my toes! Plus I can wear it with pants of any length, dresses and even my faded old, jeans.
