True Story! I Found the Most Comfortable, Work-Appropriate Sneakers Ever Created

I’ve searched high and low for sneakers that won’t get you called into HR. 

By Liz Kennedy

Can I be honest with you for a second? All I want in life is to be cute and comfortable. I used to think that was an unachievable dream until I was introduced to the world of athleisure. (Side note: I would personally like to thank the person who invented this trend.)

In the last few years I have mastered the art of athleisure and slowly but surely it’s made its way into my work wardrobe and I discovered the art of worklesiure. Since I already found the most comfortable work-appropriate pants, it was time to move to shoes to wear with those pants. And guys, I’ve found them–shoes that are so comfortable you can work out in them and so cute you can wear them to work. They’re called Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit Metallic and all I have to say is just do it. These sneaks are sleek, they’re oh so fly(knit), and they’ve got a touch of metallic to make them feel a little fancy. Plus, you can hit up a HIIT workout after work without bringing a change of shoes. Buy them now and be the most comfortable person at the office.
