Finding a heel that’s perfect for both desk and dinner is like the holy grail of skyscraper footwear. We think we’ve found a pretty perfect hot contender.

This soft pearlescent blush leather shoe with pointed toe by Australian label Jo Mercer ticks the prerequisite comfort box for all-day office wear (well, as comfy as any 10 centimetre heel can be, really) thanks largely to its solid tapered block heel. The colour is a welcome change to the overtly sensible nude favoured by many corporates (and one certain British princess by marriage), but still subtle enough to be considered office-worthy.

But when night falls, that patent pink shine comes into its own. You’ve been warned – wear at your peril if you’re not one inclined to attract either attention and/or a wild time.
