Sustainable Shoes: Boardroom to Dance Floor Edition

You know it’s going to be a long one: back-to-back meetings, drinks with clients, dinner, and hitting that new hot spot. The only release? Unleashing that workday frustration on the dance floor.

As you plan your outfit, you’ll need to be strategic: it needs to effortlessly take you from daytime to nighttime—without having to go home and change. On your check-list: practicality and impressionability (ahem, for both clients and hostess)

For the ladies…

The ankle bootie is a fall staple. The four-inch heels on ALDO’s Oringao provide that confidence boost needed to win the new account, while its square shape allows your feet to last from the morning subway stair climb to the late-night dance-off. The zipper detailing adds a cool, casual element to the typical office shoe while the round toe makes them totally daytime appropriate. Is the bold blue hue too loud? Opt for the all-black leather option to strut through the season.

For the guys..

There’s no better time than autumn to purchase a crisp new pair of brown shoes. To make a statement both in the boardroom and on the dance floor, opt for ALDO’s Aloysiau this season, perhaps paired with a navy suit. The leather Oxford shoes are a reliable staple (seriously, is there anyone who doesn’t love Oxfords?) when it comes to your professional wardrobe, but they are still cool enough to wear to the club once the jacket and tie are removed. If brown isn’t your thing, they are also available in black.
