1.What is your go-to pair of shoes? In the winter, it was my black Target boots. Now that it's a little warmer, definitely my flats from Kohl's. They're very comfy.
2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions? As crazy as I go with clothes buying, I'm pretty conservative when it comes to buying shoes. I rarely have shoe impulse buys, so I have to identify a gap in my shoe collection and then research and hunt for the best price until I actually fill that gap with a purchase.
Since I'm tall and a little sensitive about that fact, I try to keep my heels under 3" preferably. Also, I have made the mistake of buying uncomfortable shoes because they were cheap, so I'm trying to be OK with spending a little more money and making shoe buying more of an investment.
3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color? Neutrals, including metallic neutrals. I don't have many brown shoes per se (a couple cognac fashion-y boots and a pair of brown winter boots), but I have a few black, and some gold and silver ones.
4. When it comes to design shoes what are your favorite brands and why? I haven't really found a specific brand that works for me yet because my feet seem to be in between sizes. 10s often fit, but if they're narrow at all, I have to go to an 11 because I have wide feet, and then they're a little too big. Why people don't make 10.5 will forever be a mystery to me. I guess I buy most of my shoes at Target. I used to shop at Payless pretty often, but I almost always have the size issue there.
5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe? I would like to try designing a shoe on Jeff Silverman, but I haven't been able to swallow the $125 price yet. Again, I'm cheap.
As for shoes that already exist, I really want a pair of Hunter wellies. They are also over $100, and I know they're quality, but I just don't know how often I'd be out in the rain and would need them.
I feel like I'm not dreaming very big here, but again, I'm pretty practical/boring/really cheap when it comes to shoes!
