Ready or not, back-to-school time is upon us! The parents among us are counting down, shopping for fresh backpacks and sneakers for the little ones’ return to routine. The teachers we know? They are turning their attention to their classrooms and lesson planning after their all-to-brief break from the rigors of the school year. Teachers would be wise to add one more summer task to their to-do list: shopping for comfortable shoes that don’t hurt your feet!
Teachers rarely have a moment to sit – only about 20 percent of their workday! Wearing the wrong shoes can lead to foot problems like heel pain, toe pain, and tendon problems -- the most common reasons teachers seek treatment from a foot doctor.
These real-life superheroes need supportive shoes that can keep them healthy and focused on their important work of shaping young minds, all while allowing them to express their style and maintain a professional image. It’s a tall order, but Baretraps has it covered with these cute and comfortable shoes for teachers.
Peri Ankle Boot with Baretraps Rebound Technology™
It’s hard to describe the supreme comfort built into shoes made with Baretraps Rebound Technology. It’s sort of like a massage, a hug, and an energetic bounce combined. In short: heavenly! The Peri ankle boot is a versatile fall style that teachers will reach for over and over, and it comes in three essential colors that pair with so many outfits from fall through spring. We love it on casual day with leggings or jeans, a tunic, and a vest or scarf, or with fun tights and a casual cotton dress.
A good day at school starts with a good morning at home, and the Mariah flat makes getting dressed for school a breeze. This go-to style has a hidden wedge, giving them the lift that’s far more comfortable than a traditional ballet flat style, and a memory foam lining that eases you through a day of lessons and meetings. The sweet laser cut details look professional and appropriate, no matter who happens to pop by.
There’s nothing more classic than a slip-on loafer, and Olanna is the comfiest one we’ve ever worn! This five-star fan favorite is so soft inside and out, and can look professional or casual, depending on what your day holds. We pair ours with pants cropped at the ankle to show off the eye-catching perforations. You will probably be tempted to wear these on the weekends!
This school year, commit to being comfortable at work and play! Cheers to a great fall!
