We Found The Best Kicks For Back To School (Or Work) That Are Actually Comfortable

From classic toe-thong sandals to cushioned smart shoes, find the perfect shoe that doesn’t break the bank- or your back.

Ah, summer. For those who are in school or university, this time is regarded as a long blissful break from all the painful academics and a little more time spent at home with family and friends. For those of us working, it just means a little more sunshine- and less school kids on public transport. 

No matter which lifestyle category you may fall into, we all have this in common- September connotes a month for hard work and a packed schedule, meaning we need everything around us to facilitate comfort, enabling us to live our best, busiest lives as we plan to. That involves our clothing, and starting at the bottom, arguably the most important: our shoes make a world of difference in how we can go about our day. We all know from personal experience that if your feet hurt, your whole day is ruined, and we’ve got a lot to do in a day! So we'll need something to walk in that’s going to treat our feet right. 

Meet the brand we’re currently obsessed with: FitFlops. These shoes make it clear that we don’t have to prioritise comfort over style, or vice-versa. They work with biomechanics to build footwear that support proper alignment of the body and complement your natural walking style- not like other shoes that throw you off balance. On top of that, they come in an array of different styles, from their classic flip-flops to loafers and ballerina flats. 

So whether you’re in the market for a new pair of sandals for a late summer holiday, or just want to make the most of what’s left of sandal season, they’ve got the pair for you. Or alternatively, if you want some trend-led lace up trainers for attending lectures or need to invest in your stylish smart shoes before school begins, they have that end covered as well. To top it off, FitFlop are giving 30% off selected lines for back to school/work, so you can get a discount on your new comfy legends. Go on, have a shop:
