To win in the new world of business, you have to be fast on your feet. So when you want your feet to be fly — at work or at play — look for shoes from John Fluevog and from Skechers. Fluevog's Gibson Swirl ($109) sports a thick latex sole, plus stitching that stands out as much as you do. It comes in men's and women's sizes, and in such foot-tapping colors as burgundy, black, and brown-and-green.
Skechers's Dealer ($89.95) is a smooth-leather dress-casual boot with a thick welt sole. The clean lines, subtle stitching, and raised heel on this men's shoe will help you walk tall.
