The 9 Most Comfortable Shoes for Teachers

Teaching is hard at the best of times. The long days, endless marking and relentless scrutiny can take its toll on us mere mortals. Don't get me wrong, the rewards outweigh the cons, but we’re only human.

So my question is this: why would you want to make things harder for yourself?

Gone are the days when women were expected to wear heels whilst they worked because flats were deemed matronly and out of sync with style. Luckily, comfort (and, of course, always style) is now the name of the game.

As you guide our future generations through their journey of self-discovery and enlightenment, why not do it in a flat that’s both practical and also pleasing to the eye? No matter what the itinerary for the day, I’ve found 9 pairs of flats that will have you sashaying down the corridor and ready to take on anything.
