    Sneakers probably aren't at the top of anyone's list when it comes to work-appropriate footwear. Even though many workplaces are starting to take a more relaxed approach to dress codes, life would be a lot easier if we could all wear sneakers to work on the daily: No more dreaded commuter-shoe changes on a park bench, no more twisted ankles, and no more blisters by lunch time. Sounds like a perfect world, doesn't it?

    Believe it or not, with the right pieces and clever styling, you could probably get away with wearing sneakers for a week straight — without any trouble from HR. And using the ensemble inspiration ahead, we dare you to try it (but of course encourage double-checking your office's policies first).

    Read on for some foolproof sneaker-wearing tips, because it is possible to wear a pair and still look polished and professional enough for a one-on-one with your boss.
