Apparently they believe women should be made to wear more sensible shoes! We would all look like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda haha!
How wrong is that? Surely it’s a personal choice about what you put on your feet when you go to work? As long as it does not affect your ability to do your job then what right do they have to stick their oar in?
Can you imagine your bosses walking around carrying a tape measure and various other tools to carry out a ‘shoe risk assessment’? I can imagine the following;
“This one is to pointy you may get angry and stab someone at work”
“This one is really high it could make you appear taller than you are”
Etc etc… Hehe! Imagine all of us women in flats 24/7! Don’t get me wrong I probably wear flats more than most (not of the Miss Trunchbull variety) but some outfits need a heel to be complete!
Not to mention confidence – sometime wearing a certain shoe can give you a little extra confidence to do your job effectively! I know its only a shoe – but they make all the difference! I mean Imagine wearing your pajamas to work!!!!!!
