The 5 Work Shoes Your Wardrobe Needs

You spend most of your week at work so it’s important to look and feel good, that’s why we’ve put together this list of the 5 comfortable shoes your work wardrobe needs.

We all love high heels, there’s something so exciting about a pair of gorgeous shoes. But the increasingly busy modern woman can’t be restrained by uncomfortable heels, which is why Ukies shoes are designed for modern life to be worn all day long.

1.The Kitten Heel

Phyllis Black Nappa

When you have a strict dress code at work and want the morning ritual of getting dressed to be simple, then a classic black kitten heel is a must-have. The Phyllis in Black Nappa or Patent is the perfect match for any suit or suit and blouse combo. Team with black stockings in winter or throw on an LBD to take the look into the evening. This is a no-fuss shoe that never goes out of style, an essential in any busy woman’s wardrobe.

  1. A Nude Pump

Marine Taupe

Taupe Soft Leather Full Metatarsal and Heel Support Career Pumps


When it’s a little bit warmer you don’t always want to wear black. In many offices, a sundress or brighter outfit is fine for office attire, but to stay looking professional a smart shoe keeps your look in line. A nude pump matches everything while looking chic and work appropriate. The Marine in Taupe has a timeless silhouette and sturdy block mid-heel. A great alternative to this black, this is an ultra-versatile style.

  1. The New Navy Classic

Paloma Navy Suede

Navy Block Heel Pointed Loafer Pumps With Bows

 Nude and black heels have long been a woman’s workwear staples, but Navy is a fantastic alternative that matches with just about anything.  The Paloma in Navy Suede is a smart shoe that can upgrade your work wardrobe from dull to chic. The Supple Spanish suede is polished off with a covered nappa cap toe and a sweet bow that adds a feminine touch. A chunky heel at a conservative height is the perfect combination for all day comfortable wear. The Paloma is also available in Burgundy Croc if you’re looking to inject more color into your work shoes.

  1. Classic Wedge Heel

Queen Black Nappa

If you love the idea of wearing smart heels to work all day but can’t quite manage it then a wedge heel is the way to go. The Queen comes in three great workwear colors: black nappa, black patent, red nappa and nude patent. These are career wedges to support your every step. The Queen is a mid-height slingback wedge, with a tailored look and an almond toe that is perfect to dress up or wear for every day. These are comfortable enough for the woman who’s up and about during a busy workday.

  1. Smoking Slipper

The Alexa Black Reptile Nappa

Black Croc Casual Smoking Slipper

This classic slip-on smoking slipper is the perfect balance between a smart black crocodile style finish combined with a super comfortable shape.

Many workplaces have become more casual in recent years so it’s tempting to wear yoga pants and sneakers - if you can get away with it. But a relaxed dress code can make you feel too relaxed while presenting yourself well looks professional and helps you feel focused at work. These slip-on shoes are sturdy and flat so they feel as comfortable as a sneaker while looking smart and professional.

A contemporary update to a timeless design, perfect for spending the entire day on your feet. The Alexa is also available in Black Nappa, and Pewter Galaxy Nappa if you have a more creative work environment
