There is far more choice in shoe style for women than for men on the market, however that choice is narrowed down significantly when it comes to choosing that correct shoe for an interview. Ladies and Gentlemen, when choosing a shoe, make sure the following points are bourne in mind: - For Women- - The heel is not too high as teetering into the on heels that are too high will definitely not give the right impression to your potential future employer.
Choose a low heel and above all comfortable shoe or a traditional black classic leather ballet style pump, which may be more suitable for a taller individual. Interviews often take place over a whole day so wearing a shoe that is not comfortable will take your mind off the task at hand. - A solid colour is chosen, ideally black, navy or brown, and the colour of the shoe should match any accessories that are worn.
- Choose leather court shoes, preferably with a closed toe, with a traditional classic look. Black leather sling back style shoes may add a bit more variety and class to the outfit but make sure they are not too overzealous. Do however choose a shoe that is current with the fashion trends where possible.
