Shoe shopping is not fun
I went to pick out a pair of runners for every day wear. The first thing the girl showed me these:
|Yeah. 15 colours. NO.|
After a rant about how I am a damn grown-up, I went to two other stores and bought a pair of reasonable shoes.
This led to a very interesting conversation on Facebook about how I have no sense of joy.
But, like I said, I did the neon thing in 1987. I am NOT doing it again.
Finally, my cousin asked for help with her shoe issues. And I do mean issues.
So here is my list.
The essential shoes for women who hate shoes
1. Black riding boots
|Good with dresses or skinny jeans!|
I love a good pair of black boots. I bought the most expensive pair of my life and I wear them with everything. Skinny jeans, tights, or bare legs, they look great with everything. You cannot go wrong with one good pair.
2. Brown casual boots
|With or without buckles, these boots rock|
I have a pair of brown boots I bought in Vegas 5 years ago and they are my favourite.
3. Neutral dress shoes
|low heel, sling-back|
There is always a spring or summer wedding you need to go to. Have a pair of these handy. You will never go wrong.
4. Black dress shoes
|black pumps - classic|
Also, you will have a Christmas party or fancy dinner to go to. Black pumps is a must. You must have a pair of black pumps. Skirts, dress pants, or LBDs need a good pair of pumps.
5. Flat slip-on casual shoes
|Black, classy, and comfy.|
These are for casual jobs, lunch with friends, or a coffee date. They are also just a good go to shoe.
6. Comfy casual sneakers
|Basic, but cute.|
These are great because you can buy a thousand cheap pairs of these. These are shoes that never stress you out. They don't judge you or make you feel bad about yourself. They just accept you are wearing comfy pants.
7. Cute ballet flats in as many colours as you want!
|Aren't these the cutest?|
These are the cuter version of casual sneakers. They make you feel pretty and think that everyone is smiling just for you.
8. Leather flats
|Fry Carson Sandals|
A good pair of leather sandals are worth the money. Trust me.
You will need to work out eventually. Get a pair of runners. But, for the love of God, not the neon ones.
|Ralph Lauren wedge|
I might be biased, but these are my go to for everything. All summer long, I wear these and maxi skirts and tank tops. Don't get too high of wedges because your feet will hurt.
