Until you've gotten a feel for your office's footwear policy, keep the boots and sandals in the closet. Instead, go for a pair of dark pumps. Heels are a great way to give yourself a bit of extra height, but make sure to keep them on the short side -- nothing slows you down like a pair of aching feet. Leather shoes are a sure bet, but microfiber will help your feet breathe. If you do go with leather, be sure to break out the polishing cloth at least once a week. Gleaming footwear will be the perfect compliment to your already springy step.
