What Your Favourite Pair Of Shoes Say About You


Like most fashion and beauty items, the shoes you wear for can say a lot about who you are as a human. Not only does your footwear of choice arguably hint at your daily mood, but it’s a sartorial symbol often wrapped in clues about your hobbies and interests. Shoes are, after all, armor with which we can protect our feet as well as the foundation needed for taking on whatever the day may throw our way (whether it’s a torrential downpour orfour flights of stairs).

A pair of shoes must accurately capture your essence,. They’re just such a personal item. Every individual has a preference for design, comfort, appearance, and structure, of course — things that are crucial to feeling happy and confident in your ensemble. Despite those unique preferences, though, shoes are one of the few items we all wear.

So, whether your favourite kicks are comfortable, chic platforms that transition perfectly from work to play, or a pair of suede flats because you can’t be bothered with any kind of heel, here’s what your favourite type of shoe says about you.

bootiesIf there’s one way to describe you, it’s laid back. You go with the flow and see where life takes you. Whether it’s to a music festival in the middle of nowhere or to Europe with a one-way ticket, your easy breezy personality sees you on eye-opening adventures constantly. With booties on your feet, you’re ready to take on whatever life may throw at you next.

You would consider yourself a serious person, but you›re still a major goofball at heart. Every time you have had an intellectual conversation with a complete stranger at a bar, you send your friends hundreds of silly face selfies on Snapchat throughout the night. Your work life is very professional, but once you have your favourite pair of stilettos on, you go straight to having fun. You like a balanced existence, and your sky high heels keep you focused on maintaining said balance.

Flat Sandal
Flat-SandalIf you often reach for flat sandals, you’re probably all about being active and staying on your feet. Even though you have an office job, you much prefer speaking to your coworkers in person rather than shooting them an email or calling them from your desk. You’re a true extrovert and get your energy from others. You’re also almost always the one your friends go to when they need someone to talk to.

High-Top Sneaker
High-Top-SneakerYou love a good classic. From Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s to a quilted Chanel bag, you›re all about the sophistication and chic feel of traditional items. When it comes to sneakers, there›s nothing more classic than a high top. You pair your high tops with anything from jeans and a T-shirt to a formal cocktail dress. These kicks are basically a part of your DNA.

Kitten Heel
Kitten-HeelYou’re a true old soul. Your friends ask you to go out, but you would much rather stay in and watch a ‘50s movie. You have no idea what Twitter is, and still don’t understand the concept of hashtags. You would describe your personal style as a sailor girl from the ‘40s, and you love polka dots and cats. A kitten heel gives you just enough lift and personality to take on the day, so it›s always been a staple in your wardrobe.

Lace-Up Flat
Lace-Up-FlatYou stay current, and your love of fashion and style has you falling for trendy things. However, you’re a creative person who actually analyses the design process of those latest trends. Sometimes you even DIY a few things yourself, because that’s how good you are with your hands. Your friends, of course, always ask you where you got your clothes when you made them yourself.

flatsEvery morning, you choose your outfit based on what will be the most comfortable. Although you adore heels, you just can’t walk in them. So, you reach for flats instead. Flats better capture that happy-go-lucky, outgoing personality that has you laughing at yourself until you cry, and climbing furniture to capture the perfect video for a Vine.
