I have read an interesting article on Vogue the other day concerning the shoes issue, which discusses the topic of ‘women are wearing shoes that also have to please men.’ To be frank, with my 174 cm height, I never really bothered wearing high-heels unless the occasion literally demanded to do so. However, just as with many other things in life, with age, your perception in this matter changes as well. The article, which you can read here featured designer Christian Louboutin’s thoughts on whether women buy their shoes with men in mind. If we take the approach that states that women are obsessed with shoes and men are obsessed with female legs the straightforward result shows that men do care what women are wearing on their feet. As tempting as it can be to stockpile your shoe closet with feathery, sparkling, sky-high heels, which you know you will not wear more than once already in the moment you are buying them, I would suggest to pile on a nice pair of light and dark suede pumps, a crazy platform one, wooden wedges for the summer, ballerinas and sandals in the colours you love, a nice pair of lets say Isabel Marant boots that work well in the upcoming festival season too, a pair of converse or vans (choose the leopard one). Depending on your style and lifestyle, if you fall for heels, don’t forget to get a pair in gold and get a pair in silver and with men on mind choose your best match every time you can afford the amazing treat of buying a pair of new beauties.
