Good Shoes Take You To Good Places! 25+ Types Of Footwear To Add To Your Closet

We can’t say anything about you but prince charming was certainly not the hero for us in the classic fairytale, Cinderella. The dude played a side character at best while Cindrella’s shoes took central stage. Decades and so many versions of this fairytale later, Cinderellaesque shoes still continue to fuel many fashion fantasies and we kinda understand why. Shoes can after all make or break the entire look! With exactly that thought in mind, today we’d be talking about all types of shoes for women and here are 25+ styles that you should definitely know about:

Types Of Formal Shoes For Ladies

  • Stilettoes
  • Pointed Toe Slingback Pumps
  • Kitten Heel Mules
  • Oxford shoes
  • Brogues
  • Peeptoes
  • Moccasins
  • Heeled Loafers
  • Block Heels
  • Ballerinas
  • Juttis

Always lost on how to elevate your workwear with the right kind of footwear? We have got you covered. Here are ten types of formal shoes for ladies who always like to keep it sharp:


The suavest of all, stilettoes are a fail-proof choice among the different types of shoes for ladies who often keep frequenting corporate meeting halls. However, you might want to steer clear of them if you aren’t comfortable with high heels.

Pointed Toe Slingback Pumps

Pointed-toe slingback heels are great for women who like to play around with their formal wear silhouettes and tend to prefer dresses and skirts. Covered on the front and open at back, these shoes are super comfy and will never give you a shoe bite.

Kitten Heel Mules

Easily one of the best types of formal shoes for ladies, mules with kitten heels instantly elevate the entire look and go beautifully with cigarette pants. We love how they pack in the classy appeal of the stilettos minus the discomfort.

Oxford Shoes

An edgy choice, Oxford shoes go really well with power suites and trousers. Fashioned after the classy Derby shoes among men, they come in various iterations and we do recommend that you opt for solids.


A fancier version of the solid oxfords, brogues come with decorative perforations which give them a distinct appeal.


Yet another update on the classic pumps, peep toes ensure that your toes feel all comfortable and breezy while you sprint from one meeting hall to another. They go really well with both Indian and Western formals.


Often confused with loafers, moccasins happen to be their most polished, refined versions. One of the most preferred types of formal shoes for ladies, they can be identified with their soles. While loafers can come with heels, mocassins are always flat.

Heeled Loafers

While basic loafers are not the type of shoes for women that we’d recommend to office goers, we can definitely give a go-ahead to their heeled iterations.

Block Heels

If just the thought of wearing pointy heels scares the hell out of you, might we suggest that you give block heels a try? They have almost the same visual appeal as stilettos but are way comfier than them.


Safe, comfy, and quite appealing, ballerina flats are easily the most common choice when it comes to formal wear and rightly so.


If you can resist all the embellished juttis that have been trending of late and opt for their basic versions, we see no reason to say no to them as office wear. In fact, we insist that you opt for them while wearing Indian formals.

Types Of Canvas Shoes For Ladies

  • Sustainable Canvas Shoes
  • Canvas Slip Ons
  • Printed Canvas
  • Tie-Dye Canvas
  • Ankle Length Canvas Shoes
  • Colour Block Canvas
  • Denim Canvas 
  • Plaid Canvas

Have a thing for canvas shoes and just can’t stop hoarding them? Well, we can’t blame you! But do you even qualify as a true blue canvas enthusiast if you don’t have at least one of all types of canvas shoes for ladies out there? Here’s a list for you to compare with your tally:

Sustainable Canvas Shoes

Sustainable fashion is the way ahead and it sounds only fair that we open the list with a green choice. The soles of these Greensole canvas shoes are made with repurposed and old shoes and thus they make for a very sustainable choice.

Canvas Slip Ons

But why should we just stop at canvas lace-up shoes when we can also lay our hands on canvas slip ons?

Printed Canvas

Easily the coolest type of canvas shoes for ladies, they come in all hues and patterns and you’d never be able to have enough of them.

Tie-Dye Canvas

Safe to say that the tie-dye trend is not dying any time soon and it makes absolute sense that we incorporate some in our canvas shoes as well.

Ankle Length Canvas Shoes

Whenever someone talks about the types of canvas shoes for ladies, it is the ankle-length ones that pop on our mind the first. Pretty sure it is ‘coz most of us early 90s babies saw a time in high school when they were a huge rage.

Colour Block Canvas

Why go for canvas shoes in basic hues when you can opt for striking, colour-pop options?

Denim Canvas 

A one of its kind shoe design, these canvas beauties come with a denim touch and are as cool as they sound.

Plaid Canvas

These are the type of canvas shoes for ladies that a footwear enthusiast would want to buy the instant they lay eyes on them.

Types Of Flat Shoes For Ladies

  • Sneakers
  • Flip Flops
  • Gladiators
  • Thong Sandals
  • Sliders
  • Espadrille
  • Mules
  • Mary Jane Flats
  • Loafers

All about that comfy girl life? We support you and here are ten types of flat shoes for ladies and you gotta try them all:


Great for everyday wear, sneaker shoes are a must-have in everyone’s footwear arsenal. That said, we do suggest that you research carefully before investing in good sneakers. Or you can simply buy these Hush Puppies offerings if you want to skip that step.

Flip Flops

The breeziest footwear picks for women, flip-flops are the perfect choice for home and even the beach.


Recognised by their multi-strap design, gladiator heels actually date back to the ancient Grecian and Roman war times.

Thong Sandals

The best types of flat shoes for ladies who want their flip flops a little snugger and in place.


Equal parts comfy and practical, sliders are a great choice for those who wan’t something comfy to wear at home but aren’t great fans of flip flops.


A breezier alternative to sneakers, this type of flat shoes for ladies compact the wearability of sneakers with an airy touch in one design.


Mules are shoes that are covered on the front but have no constraints at the back.

Mary Jane Flats

This type of shoe for women are characterised by a loose footwear pattern that it put in place with a strap after the covered toe part.


The more casual cousin of moccasins, loafers are trending hot right now and are a great choice if you want to give a polished touch to your casual outfits.
