Busy moms need footwear that can handle their daily grind and then some. If you know, then you know. It doesn’t matter if you’re a mother who works out of the home, a work-from-home parent, or a stay-at-home mom. You’re busy all the time. Being on your feet requires support – but craving supportive shoes doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your style. You need comfortable, reliable shoes for your on-the-go days and your off-duty hours, such as a much-needed date with your spouse or night out with your friends. We’ve got you covered. If you need footwear inspiration, you can get started with a few of the shoes on this list. Trust us. These styles are mom-tested and mom-approved.

Serviceable Sneakers

Sneakers are a must for busy moms, but not just any pair will do. Naturally, you want your sneakers to look good. Every mom also needs a pair of grubby tennis shoes for working in the garden or taking the dog for a late-night walk, but for day-to-day wear, choose a pair of sneakers that you like the look of, and make sure that the soles are supportive. Flat sneakers can place too much stress on your arches. Consider picking out a pair of running shoes with plenty of cushion. They should be able to keep up with your hectic schedule.

Stylish Slip-Ons

Slip-on sneakers and similar shoes can get the job done, as well. Those trendy slip-on shoes with no laces are perfect. They’re easy to get on and off, plus they look terrific with a variety of mom-approved outfits, including skinny jeans, casual skirts, and day dresses. They’re also a fab pick to wear with your shorts.

Low-Key Loafers

For something with a bit more polish than sneakers or slip-ons, a pair of loafers should do the trick. They’re as convenient as slip-ons, but tend to look more upscale, making them ideal for anything from PTA meetings to dinners out with family or friends. Because they’re a terrific “anywhere shoe,” they should match most of your wardrobe without a problem, as well, which cuts down on the amount of time it takes to pick out footwear for whatever the day brings.

A Sturdy Pair of Slides

We don’t know about you, but we wouldn’t want to live in a world without slides. Whether you’re a fan of Adidas or Nike slides, or if you’re more of a Birkenstock girl, you can’t go wrong with slider sandals. They’re easy to slip on when you have to unexpectedly chase after a toddler or a pet, they make fantastic house shoes, and they’re a must-have for summer. Wear them to the beach, the park, or the pool. In some cases, they can even double as water shoes. Honestly, versatile footwear is worth its weight in gold.

Ballet Flats, Squared

This suggestion is twofold because ballet flats are the absolute business. It’s hard to find a somewhat casual shoe that still looks chic. The beauty of ballet shoes is that their versatility extends to all of your outfits. Let us explain.

Let’s say you have a pair of nude ballet flats. They will go with pretty much everything in your closet. They’re not too dressed up, but they effortlessly pair with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, and more. It pays to have a pair of nude flats in your shoe closet, but if you prefer a different neutral, such as black or navy, feel free to choose those hues instead. The point is that you’ll benefit from having a utilitarian pair of ballet flats because you can wear them to the office, to campus, on the school run, during the weekly grocery shop, and on evenings out.

However, you should also treat yourself to some fancier flats. There are embellished ballet flats everywhere. Glittery flats are particularly gorgeous, whether you opt for gold, rose gold, or a shade of silver or black. Embellished flats allow you to get a bit dressed up without being uncomfortable or over the top.

On-Point Ankle Boots

Still crave a bit of a heel? That’s no problem. Splurge on a hip, trendy pair of shoes – or boots, rather. Ankle boots never go out of style. They work with everything. They give you some lift, but you also get stability and support. You’ll never want to wear anything else with your jeans, dress pants, or dresses. All you have to do is choose the color and design you like.

You’re busy. You’re constantly on the go. To get through the day, you deserve a closet full of shoes that offer both comfort and style. What’s your go-to pair of shoes?
