I like Vivobarfoot shoes when not running, they have smart shoes which I wear to the office.

I don't believe "should" but I wear lowish drop shoes to work, like Ecco Biom and Nike Flex, especially when travelling on business, as I can then take one or no other pairs for running after or before work.
