Black Shoes You Can Totally Pull Off At The Office

In light of the recent uproar following the 27-year-old receptionist Nicola Thorpe who was sent home without pay for turning up at PwC in December wearing flats, we have hand-picked a selection of ‘suitable work shoes‘ that won’t have you feeling dreary and boring as you spend your days at the office,  whilst also not drawing any unacceptable and quite frankly outrageous remarks from the powers that be.

Photos of the bloodied feet of a waitress in Canada who worked a full shift in work approved high heels (part of the company’s dress code) – have been shared more than 10,000 times on Facebook and paint a horrible picture of the systematic sexism in the work place.

Managing Director of Portico, or PwC had this to say to the BBC –

Simon Pratt, managing director at Portico, said Thorp had reported to work with “inappropriate footwear”, saying she had “previously signed the appearance guidelines”. He adds that such guidelines were “common practice within the service sector” but the company were now reviewing them. PwC says it’s in discussions about Portico’s policies. The incident involving Thorp happened last December. She started the petition this week.

It has received more than 20,000 signatures, meaning the government must give a comment. If it gets 100,000, there’s a chance MPs could debate in Parliament whether women should have to wear high heels at work. – BBC
