Denim Shoes Have Come a Long Way

When I was growing up, if we wanted to wear denim shoes, we were stuck with denim Keds – the sneakers. These were fine, of course. They were comfortable and trendy, but they were really, really boring.

There just wasn’t much variety when it came to denim shoes, at least not in the circles in which I traveled. Maybe the high fashion industry had more to offer, but my family wasn’t very concerned (and couldn’t afford) anything that the fashion gurus recommended. So, we were stuck with Keds.

Now, though, there are many different options when it comes to picking out a denim shoe to wear. As this hub suggests, there are even denim sandals. In fact, there are so many different types of denim sandals, they come in numerous styles and price ranges. And they actually look good. This is a list of some of my favorites, from most to least expensive.

Disclaimer: I do not actually own all of these shoes – especially not the more expensive ones. I just think they look really cool, so I included them. I’d love to own them someday. I just don’t see it being an option for me right now, since I’m currently unemployed and am trying to help support two little girls.


Ode to Sandals and Blue Jeans

I love sandals. I always have. If I lived in a warmer climate and my feet and body would permit it, I would wear sandals all the time. As it is, as long as the temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, you will likely see me wearing sandals.

For now, though, I'm suffering through a lot of postpartum pain, and I'm trying to get my body stronger. To do this, my physical therapist says I need to wear more supportive shoes. Unfortunately, this means wearing plain old ugly (and hot and heavy) tennis shoes as the hottest part of the summer approaches - at least until I can go out and buy some really good, supportive sandals. My physical therapist thought my cute little brown slides just weren't doing the trick.

In addition to my long-term love affair with sandals, I’ve also had a consistent admiration and appreciation of the blue jean and anything made with denim – denim jackets, denim shirts, denim skirts, denim bags, and (of course) denim shoes. There’s just something so effortlessly stylish about a really good pair of blue jeans. The same holds true for anything denim. Denim is almost always a part of every season’s fashion trends, and for good reason: it’s very versatile. You can do so many things with denim that you can’t do with other fabrics. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can wear it to garden or to hang out with friends in a classy nightclub after work. Heck, you can even wear it to work.

The sandals in this hub run the gamut from fun and funky to fabulous and fashionable. They’d be great for daytime or evening wear. And with all the different price ranges from which to choose, there really is something for everyone!

Denim Goes Great with Denim or Anything Else!

As much as I love denim, I would not wear head-to-toe denim. That's just not me. Denim sandals with a white cotton blouse and light khaki pants or shorts, now that's more my style.

Oh, and don't forget the handbag. I don't see anything wrong with pairing up denim shoes with a denim handbag, as long as you've added some other colors and fabrics into the mix. Then again, I'm not exactly the fashion police, so take what I say with a grain of salt. And if you're really concerned, ask a fashion consultant. They'll give you all the right answers - for a fee, of course.

I hope you've enjoyed my brief foray into the world of fashion. Maybe you've gotten some ideas for a great pair of shoes to buy that will take you through the rest of the summer (and into next year - that's the great thing about denim - it never really goes out of style!).

If you like what you see here, leave me a comment and let me know. Even if you don't like it, let me know that, too, but be sure to tell me why. At any rate, thank you for taking the time to read my hub, and have a great rest of the day!

Thanks, chatkath. I thought the same thing - except I won't be wearing any of these any time soon - not until I get my body more stable and aligned!
