Given that you’re working 9-hour work days and you need to stay comfortable, we can empathize with the fact that painful heels just don’t make for sensible footwear choices. But while most people would opt for simple ballet flats, that can sometimes get a little bit repetitive and dull. To add a little switch up to your corp-shoe game, try on one of these flat loafers. Promising to keep you standing for all hours of the day, these slip-on-slip-off shoes are great for looking presentable without sacrificing comfort.
