An unsolicited piece of advice: As much as you might fantasize about posing at your upcoming holiday party in that pair of towering Louboutin stilettos that have been hanging out in your virtual cart for the past month, please reconsider. I’ve done it, and it didn’t end well.
After a few glasses of prosecco, those 4½-inch heels will feel wobbly. Your feet will be sore. You’ll just want the night to be over already. And what’s the point when you can look just as stunning in a pair of shoes with heels that measure in at under 2-inches?
Ahead, 9 flats, heels and booties that’ll keep you on your feet until the party ends. (Just don’t be the last one to leave. Apparently that’s bad form.)
M. Gemi The Cortina Flats
Pretty tassels fit right in with the sleek lines of these suede flats, which just so happen to come in a Chianti hue that conveniently matches the glass of red you’ll be sipping from all night.
Sam Edelman Rodney Flats
Pair this leopard print d’Orsay flat with a monochromatic outfit, then stand around looking stylish. No one will suspect you actually chose them because they’re so comfortable.
Sam Edelman Raddie Flats
Everyone in the office is already familiar with the carousel of velvet boots you've been parading around in this fall, so why not add these velveteen flats topped with a furry pom pom to the mix?
Everlane The Editor Heels
Don’t let appearances fool you. Everlane’s pointy-toed stiletto is actually incredibly comfortable — Angelina Jolie even wears it to walk her dog!
M. Gemi The Dolcetto Heels
Zebra stripes. A sturdy block heel. Yes, this is the perfect party shoe.
Chloé Lauren Heels
A scalloped trim adds some visual interest to an otherwise classic silhouette. If you’re not feeling the red, they come in basic black, too.
Another pair of velveteen booties to add to your collection, and these are as comfortable as they are on-trend.
M. Gemi The Corsa Booties
Stow these leopard print booties under your desk, then slip them on right before you head to the office holiday do. No costume change required.
Kenneth Cole Estella Booties
All wrapped up in a tasseled bow, these boots are festive without looking like you’re taking your office party’s holiday theme too literally.
