Womens work shoes

Whether you choose your work shoes primarily for comfort, function or style, Famous Footwear has the right pair for you. If you’re on your feet or on the move all day, a sturdy pair of flats will get you through the week in comfort. Some classy black pumps or smart heels will be perfect for the office, while a pair of our gorgeous low-heeled sandals will give you a similar look, without the foot strain of higher heels.

Work Shoes for Every Wardrobe

Every hard-working woman wants a pair of work shoes that look stunning but mean business. For a corporate setting, pair some black or solid-coloured shoes with business bottoms and a light, feminine blouse. Mary Jane shoes are always a winner, but you can change it up a bit with some platform heels too. Black flats or low-heeled shoes are perfect for most work situations and can be paired with almost any outfit.

Frequently Asked Questions about Women’s Work Shoes

How to style mules for work

Unlike sandals, mules are more acceptable at work as they have a closed toe; however, many of the same fashion rules apply. The most enduring work look for mules is a pair of black bottoms (pants or skirt), a nice top in any style, as well as a blazer or jacket. You can choose to either show your mules and ankles off or wear longer pants, which can make your mules a more comfortable choice that are almost indistinguishable from fully enclosed shoes from the front.

What are the best shoes for standing all day?

The work shoes offered at Famous Footwear are selected for their comfort and quality, so you can stand without pain all day. In general, the most effective work shoe features for when you’re on your feet all day should include the following:

  • A durable but lightweight construction
  • Good heel and arch support
  • Extra padding (add a quality insole for even more support)
  • High traction shock-absorbing soles
  • Breathability

These features will keep the pain at bay and a smile on your face.

How to Measure Your Size

1. You will need a ruler, pen, and a piece of A4 paper.

 Place the piece of paper flat on the ground and stand on it. Make sure your foot is flat and your foot is in the middle of the piece of paper.

 Draw a mark behind your heel and another in front of your longest toe. If one of your feet is larger than the other, use the longer foot to calculate your size.

4. Measure the distance between the the two lines.

5. Find your measurement on the ladies’ size chart above to determine your correct size. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend taking into consideration whether you're purchasing a closed in shoe such as a boot or ballet flat and whether you'll be wearing socks or stockings.

Also remember your left and right foot will vary in length and width, so choose the size you think will be most comfortable for you.

Each shoe style is fit tested in Australia and we do everything we can to make a fit as close as possible to the correct AU standard sizing measurements.

Use these sizes and measurements as a guide only. You know your feet best!
