Unless you drive to work, chances are that you do a lot of walking to get to the office. Which is why, while sky-high stilettos can make you look good, it can also tire you out before you even reach your office lobby. Your best bet? Sneakers.
Yes, you can wear sneakers to the office. The trick to avoid looking like you’re headed for the gym is to avoid graphic designs, bright colours and chunky soles. Keep it professional with a sleek silhouette, a monochromatic palette and special, subtle details.
The sneaker gets the grown-up treatment with laser cut detailing.
Sleek and shiny in feminine pink, this Classic Cortez will work with a minimalist outfit.
Make a statement with ecological sneakers that are a hit with celebrities like Emma Watson and Marion Cotillard.
For a pared-down, minimalist aesthetic, look no further than Common Projects.
Gold detailing and a hand-painted camo swoosh from this Singaporean sneaker customizer add subtle touches to the classic Nike Air.
With a slim sole and white-on-white design, this Onitsuka Tiger sneaker is great to wear with an immaculate shirtdress.
Embellished with sequins and crystals, these are not your everyday running shoes.

The satin laces and embroidered roses make this classic leather sneaker really pop.
Velcro and platform soles may sound casual, but this is office-appropriate thanks to the black neoprene material and embellished buckles.
