Should Wearing Heels to Work Be Compulsory?!

Does anyone really want to spend 8+ hours in pain, anyway?! If anything, we think wearing heels to work should be banned.

Let’s be frank: we live in a pretty unpleasant, hectic world at times. Luckily for us, though, our predecessors have fought for human rights, and succeeded – now, every human being is entitled to fundamental human rights and freedoms. We think it’s pretty weird then, that, recently, a woman was sent home from work for not wearing high heels. Isn’t that neglecting our basic human rights? Isn’t this a massive step backwards?

Obviously, we understand that if you work in the ‘business’ world, a formal business dress code still applies – looking smart does speak volumes – but this definitely doesn’t mean that you won’t do your best to meet your workplace’s goals if you choose not to wear 4-inch heels.

Wearing high heels everyday has been proven to be harmful. Even Victoria Beckham – the OG of impractical stilettoes, even when on a sports field – has ditched her heels for flats. Need we say any more?! You can still look the business (ahem) and represent a company with pride if, god forbid, you choose to wear flats. We should be able to pick the shoes we want to wear at work and feel comfy in them – we may have to spend the next 8+ hours in them, after all.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite work-appropriate flats, if you happened to be struggling for inspiration…
