7 Shoes Every Woman Should Own




In your life, there are certain events you will always remember. For many women, we mark those moments by the shoes we wore. We remember what shoes we wore to prom (silver strappy heels from Payless), what shoes we wore every day in college (that slimy pair of flip flops that doubled as shower shoes), and even what shoes we wore when we met our husbands (or if we were wearing any shoes at all).

Your shoes mark important moments in your life, but as we age we tend to stick with the basics. While we used to have four of five shoes, as we age we certainly need to own a wider variety of quality shoes. To complete your wardrobe, ensure that you have the following:

That Rockstar Pair of Heels

Everyone woman needs a pair of heels that makes her feel like she can conquer the world – the heels that would look at home on Carrie Bradshaw, Madonna, or a model walking the runway. These are the shoes that aren’t the most comfortable, but they make you feel like a million bucks whenever you wear them. You really only pull them out for very special occasions or when you know you will be sitting a lot. Still, they are important to your wardrobe.

Comfortable Heels You Can Actually Walk In

While a great pair of Rockstar heels is important, it might be even more important to have a pair of heels that you can walk in, stand in, and even run in, should the moment call for it. These are the heels that you wear to the office, to church, or even on a date when you know you are going to be doing a lot of walking. They are still cute and go with almost any outfit, but they don’t pinch your feel and hurt your arches quite like your other heels do.

Classic Riding Boots to Pull Any Look Together

Few pairs of shoes go with almost everything in your wardrobe like a classic pair of riding boots does. These shoes are so versatile that they can go to the office, apple picking, out to a concert, on a trip, and even just around the house like classic riding boots do. When you get a pair with classic details and high-quality construction, they are the type of shoes that never really go out of style. You are investing in a lifetime of style.

Smart, Sassy Oxfords

Have a job where you are always on the go? Investing in a great pair of oxfords can be the best thing you ever do. While these tend to walk the line between menswear and womenswear, there are tons of options out there that embrace the feminine. Over the last few years, oxfords with glitter, lace, rhinestones, and even millennial pink detailing have hit the market. Pair them with just about anything for a fun, funky look.

Flat Sandals Instead of Flip Flops

As we age and it gets more important to take care of our feet, flip flops become less and less comfortable. There is no structure to keep your foot safe and the lack of padding can really wear down our feet. Instead of flip flops, get a great pair of sandals that can give you that same look and feel, but tends to be just a little more comfortable. Your feet will thank you for it.

A Simple Pair of Sneakers

Investing in a great simple pair of sneakers can make or break your wardrobe. White sneakers, black sneakers, or even something with a little color can change and shapeshift to each of your outfits. Great sneakers that aren’t too sporty will go with casual dresses, jeans, sweatpants, shorts, skirts, and whatever else you have to throw at it. They are versatile, comfortable, and will almost always be in style. Plus, they let you show off your favorite sock styles!

Classic Ballet Flats

Unless you are a ballerina, owning a pair of mock ballet flats that you can slip into your bag is the final pair of shoes that every woman should own. Ballet flats are like sneakers in that they are among the most versatile shoes to wear. When you find a pair that is comfortable, it is an easy way to dress up almost any outfit without seeming too formal.

For many women, you can tell just what we are feeling by what we wear on our feet. These are seven of the ways we express ourselves. These are the classic shoes that every woman should own and cherish.
