The Best Sneakers
to Wear to the Office
The coolest, more comfortable footwear you can wear 9 to 5.
With so many great shoes dropping these days, we thought we'd pull a few of our current favorites to showcase. These are the kicks our team can't stop talking about. But they're the type that sellout fast, so if you're digging them the way we are, you'd better pull the trigger.
If you want to dip your toe in the "dad trainer" or "ugly sneaker" trend but don't want to go full-on with retro colors and oversized squishy soles, these are for you. Aimé Leon Dore perfectly mixes your tried-and-true suede desert boots or Wallabees with classic low-top sneakers. The result is a unique pair of all-purpose shoes that have a mellow vibe with just the slightest streetwear edge.

On Black Friday, Adidas released a trio of totally black EQTs, including this new murdered-out version of the fan favorite 93/17. The cutting-edge sneaker mixes its signature pixelated knit upper and asymmetric wraparound tongue construction with the ultra-responsive Boost midsole.

Greats set out to create a winter boot "that doesn't suck." We'd say they succeeded beautifully. Handcrafted in Italy from water resistant nubuck (suede's more durable cousin), they're grounded with a lightweight Goodyear-welted Vibram Vibrante sole. But the best part? That sweet shearling lined gusseted tongue. It adds just enough swagger while keeping out all of winter's dirt and muck.

"These are the shoes I'm going to wear with my new, wide-leg pants," said one Valet. staffer. And we all agree with him. Nike took their legendary Air Force 1 and breathed new life into them with fresh suede colorways (the pink and tan are our two favorites). Plus, the lightweight gum sole give them a grown-up look made for the office.
