Two new additions to my shoe cupboard are these Superga x Henry Holland flatforms and a pair of red Melissa x Vivianne Westwood boots. They are still to be delivered from the UK, BUT I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT! I just cant resist a good shoe.
Since i was young i never thought i was a shoe and handbag kind of girl. But over the past few years i often find myself thinking about anything except that. It all stated when i read an article called ‘The Perfect Shoe’ in Elle many, many years ago. I still remember the illustration pointing out the qualities of a good shoes, and i still havent forgotten it.
When it comes to heels, a good shoe will be equally balanced. When buying a heeled shoe always hold it up and even out the ratio of toes and the balls of your feet to the heel with your eyes. The rise in the shoe will be right in the middle, therefore the distance from the middle of the shoe to the heel should be the same as the distance of the middle of the shoe to the toe. You’d be surprised once you start taking notice of this that there are so many heeled shoes that are not made this way and are uncomfortable to walk in.
