I like kicking my shoes off and walking around in socks in the office. Depends on the office but less smell if you do it immediately on arrival. If anyone comments I just say something offensive, but again that depends on the office!

Is it real leather? Sometimes they trick with the term. Here only "real leather" is protected while just "leather" could be plastic.
Geox shoes are good. They have breathable soles and there is a business style line.

But why do companies insist on shoes in offices? We are here to work. Companies themselves try to make the employee feel comfortable in their companies at work but they are still stuck on the age old tradition of wearing shoes for office. May be the companies might not have thought about it! or may have chosen to ignore it as it may seem odd. I don't see any benefit in using shoes.

If you are talking about in the US, I'd guess that its about some sort of legal liability. Perhaps you might slip and fall if barefoot. Or get your toes hurt when a big box is dropped on your foot.

We're not required (per se) to wear black leather shoes in the office. But considering the black leather pants, the black leather shirt, and the black leather hood... Well, anything else would look a bit silly.

I get to wear sneakers to work. When I had to wear shoes, I wore black nice looking shoes that happened to have rubber soles. They were fine unless I had to really dress up (suit) in which case I wore my nice shoes and took them off under the table and between meetings so my feet didn't hurt. (I'm female; our nice shoes are even less comfortable than yours.)

I think one of the problems is that a lot of the world is imitating styles that developed in the U.S. and Europe, and really may not fit the climate of other countries. I lived in Viet Nam for several years, and men often wore flip-flop sandals with their otherwise western business casual outfits, but now they're are starting to bow to the pressure and wear shoes and socks.

I think you have two options here:

1. Rebel against the unspoken rule that you have to dress in western business styles to be taken seriously in the business world. Reject the homogenization of the world and become an innovator of regionally appropriate business fashions.
2. Talcum powder

It's the steel wool underwear that irritates me.
