Entering college often signifies a new stage in your life–a perfect time to update your wardrobe. As you grow and learn, your style should reflect that growth. We’ve made a list of some of our favorite shoes for college and university life below.
Comfortable flats from Cole Haan, Timberland, and Softspots are perfect for when sneakers or other casual shoes just won’t do. Wear them to class with skirts and dresses (easy to throw on!) or slip them on with your business casual wear for all-day events.
Times are changing, and now you are more likely to receive an interview for a job or internship while still in college. While flats are acceptable in interviews, closed-toe dress heels are more traditional. Comfortable heels not only feel great, but also make you look more practical. Try a pair from Rockport, SoftSpots, or Cole Haan (45 or 65 series for lower heel height).
Your summer wear doesn’t have to be restricted to flip-flops. Rock a more mature look that also helps keep your feet comfortable as you run from class to class with cork-bed or leather sandals from Naot, Olukai, Vionic, or Softspots.
Lace-Ups are comfy, but slip-ons like moccs, loafers, and boat shoes are easy to slide on and off–perfect for those mornings when you don’t really want to get out of bed. Make getting to class on time easy by leaving a pair near your door. Our favorites? Minnetonka Kilty, Sperry Top-Sider classics, and Cole Haan LTE styles.

Wet, cold, and crazy weather happens–and it doesn’t always result in canceled classes. Be prepared for whatever with Waterproof Boots from Kamik, Timberland, Sperry, Cole Haan, and Sorel (Coming Soon).
