Autumn is well and truly in the post, and with it comes golden afternoons, comfort food and that all-important wardrobe refresh for home and work.
When it comes to work shoes, the autumn weather means that sandals and ballerina pumps are no longer going to cut it. Now is the time when we all need something a little sturdier to handle the wetter, colder conditions, while ensuring we’re still dressed to impress.
Introducing the Gabor autumn workwear edit; your guide to the best pairs of workwear shoes to see you through the autumn months in style and comfort.
Sherbert Ladies High Cut Shoes
If you want sturdy work shoes but don’t want to go for a full boot, these high cut Sherbet shoes give you the best of both worlds. The high cut design keeps your feet well covered and protected from the elements, perfect for rainy morning commutes, while still feeling lightweight and comfortable all day long. The side zip detailing and low heel add subtle smart elements, making them the perfect match for skirts or your favourite smart trousers and great for impressing at the office. Try them on for size here.
Georgie Ladies Ankle Boots
One of the best ways to strike the perfect smart casual office balance is with an ankle boot, and the Georgie ankle boot is among our favourite styles for women’s work shoes this autumn. The strong yet supple leather will keep your feet perfectly dry during wet weather, and the rubber sole provides optimum traction and grip to prevent you from slipping in the rain. And these gorgeous boots are not just practical; we just love that delicate fine stitch detailing and button decoration, which give the boots a super smart and feminine feel.

Regent Ladies Casual Shoes
If it’s a flat shoe you’re after, then the Regent design makes the ideal pair of workwear shoes this autumn. Once again striking that all-important balance between smart and casual, the Regent’s supportive and durable patent leather upper makes them an ideal match for the autumn weather, and the rubber sole provides excellent grip. And don’t you just love that incredible glossy shine? Combine the shine with that smart brogue detailing and you’ve got one fantastic pair of work shoes. Pair them up with your favourite smart trousers and you’ll breeze through autumn at the office. Take a closer look here.
Trafalgar Rouched Ankle Boots
Back to the boots now, but with a smaller heel for those who prefer the added comfort of flats. The Trafalgar boot has a cosy microfibre lining, keeping your feet and ankles wonderfully warm and comfortable. This cosiness combined with the ¾ length and durable leather creates a fantastic autumn and winter choice for your workwear shoes collection. The 25mm stacked heel adds an extra style flair without adding too much height or creating pressure points, so you can wear them all day at the office and stay perfectly comfortable. Want them?

Alice Wide Fit Shoes
If you’re looking to hold on to a more lightweight feel for your work shoes this autumn, the Alice design is a great choice. Not too chunky, but still with plenty of foot coverage for colder days, this is a shoe with just as much practicality as personality. The patent leather version boasts an irresistible croc effect that elevates any office look from plain to bang on trend. You’ll also enjoy the cosy fabric lining and cushioning insoles, which work together to make one very comfortable shoe for surviving long days at work. Find them in your size here.
These five designs have hit the top spot for us, but our collection has a whole host of options for women’s work shoes, so take a look and find your favourites at Gabor.
