“I don’t know who invented high heels, but all of women owe him a lot”.
Shoes have a very special place in a woman’s heart. we all love to have the perfect shoe for any occasion, and we sometimes even create an occasion for the perfect shoe 😉
But not all of us are lucky enough to have a walk-in closet, or live in a very big house with lots of free spaces (i.e. lots of money). We usually have a limited space to store our shoes plus a limited budget to spend on shoes, so it is important to know what types of shoes are necessary for us to have.
I have put a list together that I believe will help so many of us in this matter. The types of shoes I am going to talk about in this blog, are the ones that in my opinion would enable all ladies to cover almost all occasions. You can use this list as a guideline or a checklist to sort out your shoe collections. You might already have more pairs of shoes than what I am going to mention in this post, and that is perfectly fine, but you might be one who think, even though you have lots of shoes, you do not seem to have the right ones. In this case I am hoping this post will help you out. On the other hand, you might be a person who doesn’t have lots of shoes or doesn’t want to have lots of shoes and want to keep her shoe collection very minimalistic, then I think you will benefit from the list below. The good thing about this list is, it would give you an idea, a sort of a mind frame and you can adapt it and modify it based on your needs and requirements and also based on your preferences.
Ok that is enough for introduction, let’s go to the list.
1. Black Pump
A pair of black pump is such a versatile shoe, I will go ahead and say that you can wear it with almost everything and you would look classy in it. So, it is a number one must have.
2. Nude Pump
Like black pump, nude pump is a very handy pair of shoe, you can wear it with almost everything, it goes with so many colours. It is another must have in a women’s shoe collection. What I mean is, if you have a pair of black and a pair of nude pump, you really are sorted in that department. These two will go with all the colours and will always look classy.
3. Loafer or Flat
These shoes are perfect for work and our everyday life, in which we want to have something very comfy and easy to wear. We can use them to go to the supermarket for the grocery shopping, or even when we want to go out for a short stroll. But that is not the end of it, they come in different shapes and varieties. Some of them are actually very classy and chick which would be perfect for dressing up, especially for the times that we don’t want high heels.
Let’s be honest, not all of us are gym goers, but we all need a pair of trainer for those times that we feel active. We need them when we want to go out for running or a walk. Obviously, we need them for going to the gym but even for those days that we just feeling very athletic and want to have a sporty vibe in our dress code 😉.
I really don’t think I should explain why we need Sandals. Sandals are most of the time linked with holidays, therefore there is a fun and positive energy about them. We need them for the summer time, holidays, sea side, warm weather, etc.
Boots are kind of the opposite of Sandals, we need them for the winter time, cold weather, etc. like other items in this list, there are many different shapes and forms of boots that you can choose based on your taste and your needs. But essentially, boots are another must have item for our shoe collections.
As I said earlier, this list is just a very basic example of shoes that we need and it is more like a guideline. You can always choose your type of shoe (e.g. your type of black pump) based on what you prefer, such as the height of the heels or whether you like it pointy or not, etc. You might even choose to have more trainers than pumps based on your lifestyle, or vice versa.
I am aware that I did not mention Wedges and Mules in this list but feel free to add them to your collection if you feel you really need them. To be honest the choices are limitless and the whole point of this list is, to help us to make sure that we have at least covered all the basic needs for our shoe collection.
Do you agree with this list? let me know if you think of another must have item for women’s shoe collection?
