Women's Fashion Shoe Names Description

This is just a brief description of different shoe names for women. I want to stress here that shoe names are quite different from designers shoe names. Any designer shoe name is only the brand name for that type of shoe. Here are the shoes:

  • Sandals do not cover the heels. Women sandals are light shoes that straps are used to hold it together at the foot. Some sandals are strapless, but have open heels.
  • Pumps usually have no fastenings and they have thin soles. This style of shoes do not cover the instep. Pumps are lightweight shoes.
  • Boots are type of shoes that rise up to the calf. There are ankle boots as well as thigh boots. Ankle boots are usually buttoned shoes or tight fitting. It comes up over the ankles. Thigh boots covers most of the thigh area.
  • Mules and Clogs shoes are usually worn indoors. Mules have vamps and leaves the heels open or bare. Some clogs usually have wooden soles.
  • Flats shoes are casual wears that have soft slip-on. They have flat heels

You can wear your shoes with any number of clothing. You can team your heels up with jeans, skirt, blouse or shirt. Your flat shoes can go with your tight or leggings.
