A journey walking in womens shoes

Welcome to my shoes site, which tells a story about me and why I wear them. They say a lot about a person's identity and will often change as the person changes the mode or mood they are in. Nowadays we have them for every occasion, but not so long ago for many, there would have been one pair for all eventualities. Even Cliff Richard explains in his biography how as a child, he had to share one pair of shoes with his mother for a time whilst money was tight. He would wear them during the day at school and she would wear them in the evening when she went to work.

We all begin life without shoes and then, we wear our first pair as we learn to walk and step out into the world.

A pair of shoes can really set off an outfit or indeed ruin it. They can also make a difference to your stature and the way you walk, so it is important to wear the right kind, as they will carry you throughout your day. What better comfort is there than to get home after a busy day, take off your shoes and replace them with your comfy slippers. Well, now is the time to do just that as you take a look at my life through my shoes, step by step and browse at a selection of womens shoes that you can buy.

Here Are My Pretty Dancing Fashion Shoes

I won't hang them up yet!

These were bought for me by a friend, as a sign that I should keep dancing and enjoying life. Not that I have ever been a real dancer, but I love having the occasion to wear them. The first was for my 50th birthday party, which was a lovely evening with friends and family and the second was my son's wedding, when I had them dyed to match my outfit. They come out of their box every now and then and remind me to enjoy life and not take it too seriously.

Elegant Wedding Shoes - The most important!

Yes, I had some, but they are no longer with me. Here are some pretty ones that Amazon sell:

Gumboots

My Really Old Gumboots

Bought about 40 years ago!

These gumboots must be my oldest piece of footwear! They have been with me through rainy puddles, snowy paths and muddy fields, travelling with me around the country, abroad and back again. Still my faithful protection from dirty and dangerous terrain. Sitting there propped up by the door, they remind me of the "get out there and tackle it" approach. I hope I always have a need for them.

Walking In My Shoes

What do these say about me?

I love walking and wear these when I do so. They have to be comfy and robust. These are just right for me and keep my feet comfortable all day when out in the country or enjoying the coastal paths near us.

Loafers

My Loafers For Everyday Wear

These are easy to slip on and off

They take me most places. They are always ready for average walking and are comfortable to spend all day wearing them, if need be.

My Flat Fashion Shoes

Worn for nice occasions when I don't want a high heel

I would usually wear these at the office. They are pretty without being uncomfortable and are great with trousers or a skirt.

Then There's The Office Shoes

What I might wear to a job interview

These are worn for more formal occasions, such as weddings, funerals or sometimes to work. They have a medium sized heel, which means that I wouldn't be comfortable walking around in them for long. However, they compliment the right outfit well, especially a matching skirt and jacket.

So Many Women's Shoes

How many pairs do we need?

Summer Footwear

Summer Footwear

These sandals hold special memories

I bought these sandals for a holiday in Israel, when we went for a relative's wedding, that was celebrated for the better part of a week. It was a holiday of a lifetime and the sandals remind me of it each time I wear them.

Summer Footwear

More Summer Footwear

These are my light, casual shoes

Great for when I need something cool, yet fully supporting my feet, for those long walks in the Summer, when I'd rather leave the socks at home.

Beach shoes

My Beach Shoes

I enjoy swimming in the sea

As I live just around the corner from the beach, these are an important part of my beach wardrobe. They make it much easier to walk over the pebbles when getting into the sea and are light enough to swim in.

Short Boots

My Short Boots

I wear these mainly with trousers to give extra warmth

Sometimes a full-length boot feels too much and these short boots are a comfortable compromise. They look smart and yet are warm and protective too.

Long Boots
Long Boots

Long Boots

For cold, winter days

I love wearing these with a full skirt, to keep warm and cosy. They are easy to wear, being flat and simple.

Mocassins
Mocassins

I Just Love My Mocassins

Suede slippers with faux fur lining

I have been wearing these slippers for years, because they are soooo warm, cosy and comfy. Everything you need in a slipper to get you through a cold Winter. I like cosy evenings at home with candles and hot chocolate and these slippers are a must-have!

Slip On Slippers

Here Are My Slip On Slippers

Great for taking with me to the spa or when I go away

They are so slim, they need little space in my bag and help to keep my feet cosy when I'm visiting the spa or family or friends for a few days. They just give me that cosy, at home touch.

Bootie Slippers
Bootie Slippers

My Super Cosy Bootie Slippers

For those extra cold nights

These were given to me by my sister for my 50th birthday. I guess by that age you need something more to keep the warmth in!

      I am a bit of a shoe-aholic. I'm not really into clothes, make-up or bags but I love my shoes and I enjoyed seeing some of your selection. My favorite pairs are ones which show off my toes since I like to wear polish on just my toenails. So I like open-toe sandals and cute flip flops best :)

      I like your taste in shoes! Comfort is a priority for me, too. Right now I'm wearing a pair of Crocs with knee socks since it's chilly out. Love being able to slip them on and off so easily.

      Comfortable shoes are my priority now - it's hard to smile when my feet hurt.

      The great thing about this shoe site is that it actually makes a wonderful "about me" lens. It was very nice to learn more about you. You are very right -- shoes tell us so much about a person. I live in my moccasins, my Uggs-like warm boots, and my hiking boots. Very practical and always ready for an adventure. Enjoyed this lens. I found it on RedGage. :-)
