Comfortable career shoes for women? Know of any? Also "business Casual" tips?

Q. Hi, I just accepted a job where the attire is business casual. I need some VERY comfortable, yet dressy shoes. I don't want heels, maybe a slight platform, but no pointy heels, I'll still need to move around, lift stuff, etc. The brand, or store where they sell the brand would be great.
Also, any tips on "Business Casual" dress code would be helpful, I've never had a good job before lol.

A. Easy Spirit or Aerosoles brand shoes are comfy...some styles are a bit grandma, but if you browse all their stuff you'll find some nice casual and even trendy ones. For Biz Casual, avoid showing toe, as in sandals, but for most places clogs are okay. Definitely No Flip Flops!...I worked with someone who showed up in a nice casual outfit to work and got in trouble for the flips! Biz casual usually means, suits, blazers and such aren't necessary....I'd definitely avoid jeans unless others at the job wear them...it's usually smart to stick to slacks, skirts, blouses (no cleavage!) and button down shirts....avoid skirts above the knee if you're in an office setting. JJill.com Jcrew.com and Eddiebauer.com can give you some good ideas ....even if you don't end up shopping them because of price, you can easily copy their styles at other department stores. To get the best picture of how to dress though, stop by the new work place and check out what everyone else is wearing. Best of luck at your new job!

comfortable dress shoes?
Q. I am an interior design intern (still two more years to graduation), and was wondering what your most comfortable dress shoes are. I've been wearing flats, and they're SO flat that the bottoms of my feet are bruised. The fabric on the cheaper shoes also irritated the bottoms of my feet. =(

I dressed up at a previous job, and any dress shoes were fine because I sat down all day, but at this job I am on my feet 90% of the day. And I wait tables at night, so I'm on my feet then too. I have great serving shoes, but I have to dress up at the internship.

These women (and men) are extremely well dressed. I absolutely cannot look out of date or not stylish. I did buy two pairs today, one was the brand Bare Traps, and the others are Nurture by Dillard's. I don't care how expensive, I just need stylish classy dressy shoes that aren't going to kill my feet. I tried on Naturalizers and they hurt. It's like I'm running a marathon, I need them to be as comfortable as the tennis shoes I'm not allowed to wear.

Is this possible?? The two pairs I got are pretty amazing. The Bare Traps are brown sandals with thick cushy soles. The Nurture are black 2 1/2" pumps. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Save my feet AND my wardrobe!!!

A. I would suggest purchasing some Dr. Scholl's shoes. They're very trendy and professional but they keep you comfortable:


However, if you just want regular shoes, I would suggest investing in one pair of loafers (wedge or flat), one pair of close-toe pumps and one pair of peep-toe sandals. This basic variety of shoes is perfect for transitioning from waiting tables to your internship. If you still find them uncomfortable, simply use Dr. Scholl's inserts for better cushioning and arch support:





Good luck!!
