Comfy and Cute Shoe Search-The List

Hi, friends!
Many of you commented here and on FB about your favorite comfy/cute shoes. 
Many of you are on the search with me! 
 Looking for a casual slip-on?

How about a lace-up?




Are you a boot lover?

 Can't part with your heels?


Why is it so difficult to find a cute shoe that is comfortable enough to teach in
and doesn't cause leg/foot pain at the end of the day??
Seriously, someone could make a mint if they listened and created.


I've been introduced to several new-to-me brands on this search, so...
I thought it might be a good idea to compile a list of Teacher Recommended Shoes
complete with links.

A few observations
1) There is a market for cute and comfortable shoes for teachers.
2) You need to be willing to spend a little $$ for quality shoes.
3) There is no One Great Shoe for all teachers.
4) Some of these companies have brand new looks!
5) Several shoe companies have cute bags, as well! 
6) Shopping for shoes is fun! Okay, we already knew that!


Here you go, my teacher friends! Happy Shopping!
Teacher Recommended Brands 
Click on the brand to shop.
Just FYI: no compensation here!
Skechers
Tieks (sigh...)
Tennis Shoes

Spendco Insoles

UPDATE: Here's my Pinterest board for more choices!




I will add to this list as brands are shared.
Thanks so much for sharing your favorites!
Have a comfy week!!

  1. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Our feet have been killing us, no matter what shoe we've tried. We think they got too comfortable in flip flops this summer. :) Off to shop!!

  2. I have some Sketchers shoes (not GoWalks) that fit like flat tennis shoes, but have a suede/leather combo that looks nice enough for work. They're not exceptionally cute, but they work for me and they are SO comfy all day!

    1. I talked about Tieks on my last post, but no one had worn them. A few people have chimed in since then. Adding them now. Thanks, Miss Inzitari! They are sooo cute!

  5. Omg! No one mentioned Born! Ok there is an umlaut on that o but I can't do that on an ipad! Lol they are very comfy and great support! They are becoming more mainstream so they are often on sale at Bon Ton, DSW and Super Shoes has them also- at least where I live! They are pricey but worth it! Love them!

  10. Hi,
    My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you earn royalties of 70%. You can visit us at: http://www.resources4teaching.com

    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day

  11. I'm not a teacher, but I work at a car dealership. My job is to take photos of all of the used and new cars on the lot... there are 3 stores on the property, so I'm often schlepping from one side to the other. Have found that my cute shoes are certainly cute, but maybe not so great for daily wear. Sneakers are a strict "no" on the dress code, but I think if I keep them black and low I can sneak them by - thanks for the suggestions!

  12. Have you heard of Kurus? They are so comfortable! I can't believe that I hadn't heard of them sooner!

  13. Have you heard of DexFlex shoes from Payless? http://eslcarissa.blogspot.com/2014/07/teacher-fashion-back-to-school-shoes.html I LOVE them (no compensation here just a teacher sharing her under $20 shoes!) Seriously, the best teaching flats I've ever owned.
