The Best for Work: The Gemma Mule

Set aside your pumps and slip into these brown mules from Nordstrom to give your feet a much-needed break. The made-for-any-season mules feature soft leather, giving them a broken-in feel. Pair them with dress pants for a professional look, or dress them down with jeans and a blouse for casual Fridays.

The Best for Everyday: Adidas Superstar Sneakers

Every woman needs a neutral pair of shoes with a little something extra, and thanks to the metallic gold accents, these Adidas sneakers are exactly what your wardrobe may be missing. For a cute yet casual summer look, wear them with a t-shirt dress, and as the seasons change swap the dress for a pair of black skinny jeans and a denim jacket. Note: These shoes tend to fit large, so you may want to order a size down.

The Best for Date Night: Faux Suede Block Heels

When you have these versatile block heels in your closet you'll always have something to wear for special occasions. They are made from faux suede for an elegant look, while the low heel makes them comfortable to wear for hours. We love these heels paired with a red dress for date night, but you can also wear them to work or a wedding.

The Best for Rainy Days: Jeffrey Campbell Rain Boots

Bright-red rain boots are cute, but they aren't great for commuting. These Jeffrey Campbell boots from Nordstrom look just like a stylish pair of Chelsea boots, thanks to their matte finish, but they're made from durable, waterproof rubber just like your favorite wellies. On cold days, add another cozy layer by pairing them with Smartwool socks.

The Best for Outdoor Adventures: Teva Verra Sandals

If you're an avid hiker, these Teva sandals will be a game changer — especially during the summer. All straps are adjustable to make sure they fit just right and don't cause blisters, and they feature a hook-and-loop closure so you can quickly slip them on and off. The foam midsole and cushioned footbed provide added comfort and support so you can hike for hours without having sore feet. Although we love this universal black pair, you can also get them in five other colors.
