The Best Shoes For Teachers


When it comes to finding the best shoes for teachers, comfort is key. We’ve curated a collection of teacher-approved shoes that don’t look like comfort shoes. Crafted with hidden support features and designed to elevate every outfit, you’ll wear them term after term.

Whether you’re lecturing, out on yard duty or trekking the campus, there’s no denying teachers spend long hours on their feet. While you might receive an A+ for being active at work, walking on hard surfaces without comfy shoes takes a toll.

Shoes For Teachers: What To Look For?

There are many components that make up a good shoe and we’ve been on quite the journey to give you shoes that look just as good as they feel.

It all starts with the footbed. From the base of your heels to the ball of your feet, this little cloud of goodness has carefully designed curves to support your feet, prevent heel pain and promote healthy foot function.

While you might assume that soft, flat and bendy footwear is good for you, we can confirm that a structured shoe is the way to go. The very construction of our shoes has loads of supportive elements to ensure ultimate comfort —most of them you can’t even see.

Top Picks For Every Teacher

From classic boots to casual kicks, we’ve got a range of supportive shoes for teachers that will have you crossing campus without worrying about your footwear.
