Is just us, or does summer always fly by? We’re never too sad to see fall coming our way though. The autumn is always full of fun holidays, football games, school events, cozy outfits, and of course the back-to-school hustle. For our teacher friends and followers, there’s an extra pep in your step. There’s so much to prepare for – prepping your lesson plans, getting your classroom set up, field trip schedules, and of course, new outfits!
We know you’re working hard on your feet all day as a teacher! Creating the perfect teacher outfit should definitely include supportive and versatile footwear. Instead of bulky orthotics or less-than-desirable sneakers, reach for a pair of Stegmanns. Having the right support for your feet, knees, and back can be stylish, too! Here’s why a few educators top off their go-to teacher outfits with our adorable, practical, and supportive shoes:
As a teacher, I am always on the search for comfortable shoes that match my style (comfy- casual that is not marmish). I received multiple compliments on them the first day I wore them (from kids and adults alike) and I felt like I was privy to a special secret all day (that I was basically wearing slippers for shoes). ;) I was hooked. I wish I could get them in every color because I love them SO much. I love how warm they are (I live in ND after all), and the wool lining feels so heavenly on my feet (I don’t even need socks if I don’t want them!).

“I can’t remember the last time I wore a pair of new shoes and wasn’t in pain by the end of the day. These are a delight! I’m a teacher and on my feet all day…I also have a bunion that makes finding shoes that don’t hurt a real challenge. These are absolutely amazing so far AND they’re cute!”
Ms. Hoag - Women's 'Eva' Wool Mary-Jane.
“I can stand on my feet all day in them (I'm a teacher), I have even walked to school in them multiple times. No blisters, and no foot pain. I have a bad back, and when I wear unsupportive shoes, my back twinges - these never cause that to happen.”

“I am a teacher, and am on my feet a good portion of the day. I ordered these looking for something comfortable as we transition to the fall. These were right out-of-the-box comfortable! I wore them all day long yesterday and today I ordered another pair! Excellent comfort and quality!”

Below are a few outfit ideas below with some of our most-loved shoes for women who work on their feet all day. If you’re not a teacher, these fall outfit ideas are also great combos to replicate for the office or working from home.
Slip on the Leather Maria Mule
If you’re all about ease, the Maria Mule is the perfect addition to your teacher outfits this fall. The shoe features an open back like our clogs, so you can slip these on and off easily throughout your day. The vegetable-tanned leather adds a gorgeous and sophisticated element to your outfit.
The Maria Mule pairs well with slacks, jeans, dresses, and jumpsuits. With three neutral colors–tan, black, and navy–you can find the right match for your teacher outfit aesthetic. No need for socks, either! The real wool felt lining helps your feet breathe and wicks away moisture. Feel the support all day long with the felt-covered cushioned arch-supportive insole on top of our famous recycled cork and latex support sole.
Dress It Up with the Liesl Skimmer
Our most popular flat dress shoe is ready for classroom action! The Liesl Skimmer comes in lots of different colors and textures including wool-felt lined leather and an all wool version. The comfortable and feminine shoe starts with a wide toe box that tapers down to a narrower midfoot and heel to create a classic and stylish silhouette–the perfect touch to your teacher outfits. Wear these just as easily with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses, and even suits.
The flat dress shoe is not like any other. Inside, the removable arch support provides all-day comfort whether you’re behind the podium, on the playground, or speed-walking through the halls. The lightweight cork and latex sole absorbs shock to protect your joints and support you when you need to turn on a dime.
Buckle Up With the Eva Mary Jane
Bring a bit of your European summer back to school! Add the made-in-Portugal Eva Mary Jane to your teacher outfit lineup this fall. This dress shoe features a roomy toe box and adjustable strap for maximum comfort and versatility during your busy day in and out of the classroom. Easily dress these up and down with any fun and flirty dress, work pants, skirts, jeans, and leggings.
You have a few different ways to wear the Eva Mary Jane with a vegetable-tanned leather option and a wool felt option. The leather Mary Jane is lined with luxurious wool felt, so neither options require those pesky no-show socks. Inside of both shoes, you’ll feel the support of the contoured cork/latex support sole that will mold to your foot over time.
