Every city has them—women who commute to work in their gym shoes. Even when she's dressed in a skirt and stockings, Julie wears her sneakers to the office and says comfort is key.

Thanks to new shoe technology, Joe says working women now have more sophisticated options—sans laces. "Cole Haan does a great shoe because what they've done is taken Nike technology and infused it into their shoe," Joe says. "It feels like a sneaker, but it really is such a great shoe. This you can keep on all day."

Julie slips on black Cole Haan flats. "They're great, and they are comfortable," she says. "I can feel the support."
