Colored shoes might be appropriate in a fashion or creative type office environment but in most offices they pose a distraction. Colored shoes will call attention to your feet instead of you. Neutral color shoes like black, bone, brown or navy look smarter than shoes in bold colors like red, yellow, orange, etc. at work. For example you might be wearing a classic black or navy dress that is office appropriate with red shoes, instead of black, and all eyes will be on the red shoes when you walk into a room instead of on your face. The most stylish shoe for most work environments are neutral color closed toe pump styles. They look great with almost everything. Show off your expertise and good taste at the office and your fashion and style at social events.
