Shoes Today. What Tomorrow?


Have you ever typed 'what do your shoes say about you' in to the Google search box? It's okay if you haven't.
I got a mad notion to do just that.

Apparently a 'Croc wearer is a health care worker who, after a long day at work, is able to come home without having to take their beloved Crocs off'. Generalising health care workers, anyone? Shame I am neither a health care worker nor or a fan of Crocs.

Someone who wears Ugg boots are just being themselves according to the same source. (Click here for the full article.) I used to wear Ugg boots. I loved them. They were are so warm and comforting. However, that was then (circa 2006, 2007) and this is now. The nearest I have to possessing a pair of Ugg boots are my leopard print Ugg slippers. I am looking at them right now. And yes, they are warm and comforting. Exactly what slippers are supposed to be like. (Not of the sexy kind, obviously.)

My shoe collection is small. I like flat shoes. During the day and during the night. Of course, I own some high heels. For ''special occasions''. Or those occasions when I am in the mood for wearing them. I know that when it comes to heels no pain, no gain is their motto. However, I'd much prefer no pain at all. I don't know what that says about me? Weak, perhaps.

I wish I had more jazzy flats, though. So, I paid Net-A-Porter a visit. Hello, Miu Miu. I would wear Miu Miu heels. I would wear Miu Miu flats. 

Question: What do your shoes say about you?
Answer: That I am a Miu Miu-er. (Explanation: Buys Miu Mius shoes. Flats & heels alike. Feet give out if any other brand is worn.)

I feel like Miu Miu has really stepped up their game with shoes lately. I crave every single pair I have seen in the past year. It's ridiculous.

haha, if I had the money I'd be a Miu-Miuer too :)
That's such a fun article, he he. I'm mostly a heel wearer but I do love flats too. I also have very clean shoes, so I guess I 'have many pairs of shoes and you may even be a bit of a germaphobe' ...except not really

Bit of a jekyll and hyde when it comes to footwear. I'm all for comfort during the day so its flats all the way! At night then it's no pain no gain! I do also own a pair of Uggs they are the black knit & I do wear from time to time usually on a hung-over Sunday :)

Those Miu Mius would be welcomed in my wardrobe anytime!

Isabel said...

i wear mostly flats. i guess that means i like comfort. lol

I love heels, but the pain is so intense for me that I just stick with flats. I also like shoes that I can just easily slip on. I know I'm lazy.
