I was working at an on-site construction office and I kept hearing rumors that I wore high heels to work. I had 2 pairs I wore, one black and one brown. To me they were boring 2″ heels and definately not sexy. They were “office shoes.” If I went out on site, I had another pair of site shoes that I wore.
One day while sitting in my office I heard another PM on the phone whispering “She wears high heels to the office.” OK time to correct that misconception.The next time I went home I brought back a pair of black high heels – nothing too sexy, but a nice pair I would wear to work if I wore a dress suit and doing a presentation.
When I got to my office I took one of each pair of shoes and set them on my desk. Under the shoes I hung a sign that said “Site Shoe, Office Shoe, High Heels” with arrows pointing to the appropriate shoe.
That got the discussion going. The guys started discussing the kind of shoes they like women to wear. They determined that my high heels were nice but not sexy enough for date shoes. I told them I left my Carlos Santa shoe collection at home.
And as for my wearing “high heels” to the office the misconception was corrected – I wear ugly shoes to the office.
