I don’t think I’m a real girl. These are all the shoes I own, and I can see right away that I definitely need to re-think some of these shoes. A few are pretty unattractive. I’ve decided to go in chronological order.
These are 12 years old. I bought them for a dress-up occasion (Echo’s 5th Anniversary party). They are Arche. All my nice shoes are Arche, they are the most comfortable while also being pretty.
These are Campers, they are probably around 10 years old. I bought them because I wanted a nice flat for “business casual” outfits. God they are ugly. Comfortable, but ugly. With all the cute flats they’re showing now there is just no excuse for these shoes.
Then I decided I needed another pair of dress shoes. The heel from the pair above was too high to wear for extended periods of time, so I bought these. They are maybe 8 – 10 years old and are the perfect shoe. Reasonable heel, but still pretty.
I saw these sandals at the same time I bought my new dress-up shoes, and I just had to have them. LOVE these sandals. I’ve never seen anything else like them. Aren’t they great?
I got these boots when I decided I needed a winter shoe that was a little more attractive than my regular winter walking shoes. You can’t tell in this picture, and they need a wipe down, but they’re cute.
Now we get to the worst part. I walk everywhere I go. On any given day I’m walking 1 to 4 miles. So, I’ve got two pairs of everyday, walking shoes, one for winter and one for all the rest of the year. These are my Merrells, my regular winter walking shoes. Yes, they are hideous, but what can I do? I need comfort (and warmth). I wear these with pants, so they don’t show like they do in this picture. I wear the boots above when I’m wearing a skirt or dress.
My rest of the year everyday, walk-everywhere shoes are less problematic. I usually get some sort of cute sneaker. I was in a red phase when I got these, and I will probably replace them in the spring.
