I often say that if I was tall I would wear heels only once in a while. I would probably live in flat and low-heeled shoes. After all, my favorite shoes are biker and ankle boots.
I love high heels but I realized that I can’t wear them everyday like I used to do. There was a time (and writing this makes me feel kind of old!) when I basically worn high heels every day, even when it was very unnecessary, for example to walk my dog.
I perfectly know that high heels are beautiful, sexy, feminine and that they can make the difference. I just think that wearing them every day is not for me, anymore. And for “not for me” I mean my feet (toes most of all) and knees (I have kind of weak knees, unfortunately).
Even if I like flat and low-heeled shoes, there’s a type I don’t like: ballet flats. I have bought 2 or 3 pair in the past years, I worn them just a few times and I realized they’re not for me. I find them unflattering and uncomfortable. They only look good on the shelves of the stores. And of course on Audrey Hepburn, which is the reason why ballet flats are considered sooo chic. Ballet flats are one of those things I like worn by other women but that are “so not me”, like chandelier earrings and colorful prints.
I don’t even consider slides proper shoes, let me say. To me, they are still the rubber pool slippers I used when I was a child so I wouldn’t wear them to go out. They’re slippers, so let’s wear them at home or to go swimming. The trend, started by some bloggers who wear them even with gowns and frocks, is just non-sense.
These are the flat and low-heeled shoes I chose for you.
