Before we go too far let me just say that shoes are not my forte...
I don't really know what my forte is...
seriously, I am not an "expert"
Maybe I could be considered "gifted" at growing roses
making the most of enjoying doing the laundry
or washing dishes at my farm house sink..
Well you asked, so I am going to share my thoughts...
Shoes MUST be comfortable for walking.
I cannot condone discomfort when it comes to footwear...
bleeding blisters and bunions ugh!
If I were to own shoes that I only wore to sit and look beautiful on my feet,
I suppose I could justify buying seriously high heels
but that seems like an extravagance
not a reasonable or justifiable expenditure with my budget.
Shoes that cost over $250 are considered too much for my budget...
I like to buy mine on sale.
(BTW I am still lusting over those long wished for red Ferragamo Varinas.)
Yes they are on my "lottery win list"
IF I won, do not think for a second that I would not run out and buy a pair...
if the lottery was vast I could buy two in different colours and then I would have to distribute the wealth to my family and local worthy organizations.
Fashion and style come second over comfort.
Colour for me is basic...you may already know where I am heading...
yes it is classic black...
I deviate once in awhile and buy a cheery colourful pair of walking shoes for spring and summer but for Fall and Winter I do not stray.
Conservative, practical, affordable.
Fall and Winter Shoes...
2 pairs of boots
3 pairs of flats
2 pairs of short sturdy heels
(one pair of black kitten heel pumps are in the downstairs closet)
these are years old and still going
Amalfi and Stuart Weitzman
(did you notice that I like gross grain bows?)
Flats that I wear with my jeans and ponte knit black pants.
Clarks are what I like to wear when I walk many many kilometres.
These came with me to Paris and my feet were happy even after 8 hours of walking.
My current crush
are these Chelsea Boots
I wear them with dresses and skirts with tights,
and with socks and leggings, pants or jeans.
I have black Sperry rain boots and Saucony walking sneakers
but that's it for my footwear.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Do you like to wear heels?
What do you consider when you buy new shoes...
comfort, style, fad, fashion, price, designer brands?
Will you pay upwards to $1000 (or more) for a pair of shoes?
I won't be offended if you think my collection of shoes is boring and unimaginative...
So please share your thoughts.
We had a fabulous weekend...
Bad news is our dishwasher is on the fritz,
good news is that the repairman is coming by...
