Today’s Coveted Working Look: Boots for the Commute

by Rachel Yeomans | December 27th, 2013   

Commuting can be cumbersome not just for you, but for your footwear. Do you wear winter boots, rain boots or can you get away with stepping carefully still wearing your pumps? If the weather isn’t inclement, I usually try to wear a pair of flat boots, but my current pair from United Nude are getting a wee bit ragged. A new pair of boots is in order! How convenient that I stumble upon the Ryley Flat Boot by Steven.

A lot of flat boots don’t have a lot of support nor traction for the icy patches on the sidewalk. I like the heavy soles and short stacked heel of these boots. Plus the distressed leather and buckle detailing add texture that I like. Because, heaven forbid I have boring boots!

These will be fine for casual work days, but don’t assume clients would jump at the commuting boot. Your commuters may, though! And they should as they’re currently 20% off at Shopbop! Now there’s a post-holiday treat indeed. See you on the sidewalks!
