As a mom, finding footwear that is both practical and chic can seem like a challenge, but it is worth the effort! You deserve shoes that make you feel confident and comfortable all day long. Browse the styles below for ideas, and then make sure you select the right size and width for maximum comfort. We suggest shopping in the afternoon or early evening, when your feet have swollen a bit from the day’s activities, and trying on a few different sizes and widths until you find the perfect pair.
At the top of your shopping list should be a pair of slim sneakers that pairs well with pants, shorts, or even skirts and sundresses. Plain white Keds are the most popular example, but they aren’t the only option. Low-top Converse can also work well as everyday sneakers, and both brands feature a wide variety of colors as well as a few unique prints. Many other brands offer similar options, although in a more limited selection.
Unless your area stays cold all year long, a pair of cute sandals is another must-have. These will pair well with shorts, capris, skirts, and other fair-weather styles. On the hottest days of the year, you’ll be especially thankful for this option. For all-day comfort, look for sandals with cushioned soles, arch support, or a contoured footbed. Birkenstock sandals have become popular recently, with the brand expanding its selection of styles.
On the other end of the weather spectrum, you’ll want a pair of comfy boots. Booties, calf-high boots, Uggs, leather, suede – you’ll find plenty of styles and brands to choose from. Just remember to shop for all-day wear, which means paying attention to the way the boot is constructed and how well it supports your foot. If you know you’ll be trekking through snow, rain, or mud, consider a pair of duck boots from brands like Sperry, L.L. Bean, or Eddie Bauer.
Some days, you just don’t have time for shoelaces. For the ultimate in comfort and convenience, consider adding a pair of simple slip-on shoes to your closet. You can find several stylish options, from Ariat cruisers to TOMS shoes. Brands like Steve Madden and Sketchers also offer slip-on sneakers that fit the bill.
All-Day Flats or Heels
Of course, slip-on sneakers aren’t the only way to avoid laces. It’s also a good idea to spring for a pair of high-quality flats or heels designed for all-day wear. These will work better for dresses and office attire than some of the other styles. Look for cushioned insoles and thicker heels, and read through some online reviews to see how they hold up over time. Rothy’s flats have received excellent reviews, as have certain styles from Crocs.
As a mom who goes all day, you need shoes that can keep up. The styles above offer a great balance of fashion and function, and they transition well from day to night. Plus, you can find options to fit any budget. Incorporate a few of these versatile styles, and you’ll be ready for anything your day can throw at you!
