i know a lot of people change to slippers when they are in the office, because wearing high heels the whole time takes it toll to our heels. i used to change to lower sandals in the middle of the day. but now, ever since my sandals broke, i do not change anymore

I think wearing slippers at the office is VERY unprofessional. I think if you want to be taken seriously, you should dress accordingly.

Taken seriously? Who decided women should wear heels to dress accordingly? I think if men had to wear heels to work because there were not any flattering flats for them, they wouldn't hesitate to approve slippers as VERY PROFESSIONAL.

yes! i changed to slippers the minute i get in the office. It makes me comfortable and fell like i am at home. My job is always sitting, and thanks to my table, it allows me to hide my feet so nobody from outside can see my feet. My visitors never knew the one they were talking business to, was wearing her comfortable slippers. :-)

Much that I want to, we are forbidden to wear slippers in the office. We might get reprimanded up to the point of termination of we disobey the rules. We can wear flip-flops on the way to the office but on the office floors, definitely it's shoes or else!

Yes, when i was still working in my former office, me and my colleagues are allowed by our boss to wear sandals in our office. Only when the big boss is around, then we are not allowed to wear slippers or even sandals in the office. I ever had a sore feet due to wearing the high heels, whole day at work. Now, i do wear sandals at home, when i switch on the air-cond. If i didn't switch on the air-cond, then i prefer not to wear any sandals because it makes my feet feels very warm.

I do have a pair of crocs slip-ons in my office. I wear it during our lunch break, when the office is closed, which is from 12 noon to 2pm. For some reason, I do not like being caught wearing slippers by our clients. I am a little conservative when it comes to proper office attire. Have a nice day!
