We know nothing sings as sweetly on our feet like a pair of red or colorful shoes, but really, mostly, they stay in the closet, which is why this Black Friday, we are thinking it’s always time for a pair of new black shoes. Suede, satin or in towering heels, they are what we wear the most, so why not indulge?
Shiny block heeled booties might be a better choice for running to the subway in the rain but we don’t know anyone who doesn’t covet a new pair of low heeled “can still walk to work in these chic” Manolo’s? Our resident millennial is obsessed with the sky-high YSL stiletto heel, which are so beautiful they might be worth slathering your feet in CBD cream and hoping for the best. One of the season’s biggest trends is croc, and Loq’s boots would bring an extra edge to jeans and a t-shirt. Obsessed with the sneaker trend? The sleek, retro appeal of the Cortez is perfect for anyone who wants to take a stab at the street style girls. Wear them with a midi skirt and turtleneck. Mules? Loafers? Sensible heels? We got ’em all.
Diana Vreeland judged people by the soles of their shoes. With that in mind, don’t forget to treat your new black shoes kindly and take them to the dentist shoemaker twice a year. We are so sad when we see badly beaten heels in need of treatment? If you but a new pair, lavish them with respect or just isn’t right.
