We wouldn’t blame you if you chose to live in your favorite sneakers 24/7. But unfortunately, even despite the rise of athleisure trends, there are still many work environments in which sporting your running shoes or Air Jordans just won’t cut it.
If you can’t live without the comfort factor, though, we’ve rounded up a range of sneakers so sleek, they can almost pass for dress shoes. From lace-up looks to polished slip-on styles, shop all the office-appropriate options for every budget below
