A fine pair of shoes is as essential to your outfit as that steaming, hot cup of morning coffee. But the task of coupling five different looks through the work week can be particularly daunting. Dont fret anymore.

Here’s a guide to sauntering into your workplace in style with an eclectic mix of fashionable footwear to suit every taste and mood from Shashank Arya, Director, DAR Group (for Heel & Buckle London by Berleigh), Rohan Batra, Managing Director, FILA India and Kapil Mahtani, CEO, Tresmode.

* Monday: The beginning of the week is like the first impression; you always want to get it right. Fashionably formal yet comfortable is the way to go. Opt for a snazzy derby in a burnt patina hue with a perforated texture detailing and a lace-up fastening.

* Tuesday: You started the week on a high fashion note & day 2 should be no different. After a frenzied first day, it’s time to get your head in the game and rev through the day. Nothing speaks classic than a simple black pair of shoes. A versatile pair, just right for completing any look, this one is a must feature in every gentleman’s wardrobe, assured to evoke a sense of savoir faire.

* Wednesday: Rise & grind, its Hump day! You got through the worst and now it’s time to power through the rest. Clock in those hours at the office in style but not at the cost of comfort. A pair of loafers is perfect to take you from excel sheets to karaoke night in an instant.

iPad Neck Pain More Common Among Women Than Men

Postures that led to pain included those that cause the tablet user to "slump" over and gaze downward

Women are two times more likely than men to experience pain in their neck during iPad use due mainly to bad postures, warns a new study.

iPad Neck — a condition of persistent pain in the neck and upper shoulders caused by slouching or bending into extreme positions while using tablet computers — is also more prevalent among young people than older adults, said the study.

The findings, published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science, suggest that posture, not screen time, is the biggest factor behind neck and shoulder pain due to iPad use.

“Theoretically, the more hours you spend bent over an iPad, the more neck and shoulder pain you experience — but what we found is that time is not the most important risk factor. Rather, it’s gender and specific postures,” said lead study author Szu-Ping Lee from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

Postures that led to pain included those that cause the tablet user to “slump” over and gaze downward.

The pain disparity among men and women might be explained by size and movement differences.

Women’s tendency to have lower muscle strength and smaller stature (for example, shorter arms and narrow shoulders) might lead them to assume extreme neck and shoulder postures while typing, according to the researchers.

In the study, the team conducted a survey of over 400 people, including public university students, staff, faculty, and alumni who were touchscreen tablet computer users.

The results showed that 70 per cent of female respondents reported experiencing symptoms of iPad neck as compared to just under 30 per cent of men.

Women were also more likely (77 per cent) to use their tablets while sitting on the floor than men (23 per cent).

Further, sitting without back support increased the odds of pain by two times. Sitting with the device on the lap or sitting on a chair with the tablet placed on a flat desk surface also contributed to the pain.

The researchers found that university students, staff and alumni they studied reported a higher prevalence of neck and shoulder pain than the general population.

Sitting on chairs with back support and exercising to strengthen muscles are some steps that users could take to avoid pain due to iPad use, according to the researchers. (IANS)
