56 Wearable Shoe Designs

From Tuxedo-Appropriate Sneakers to Thermoplastic Footwear

— November 21, 2014 — Fashion
When it comes to wearable shoe designs, there is much to be said about striking a perfect balance between form and function. Finding something that suits a professional setting, or one that simply requires more class than a public gym, can be tough when people are focused on comfort. Yet this collection of wearable shoe designs will inspire people to dig a little to find something truly exceptional.

Whether that means thinking outside of the box with a pair of boat shoes made out of rubber and an ergonomically correct ballet flat or grabbing a wearable shoe design that boasts a mix fun patterns and colors, there are many ways to incorporate comfort without sacrificing style.
