For centuries males have often wondered the same question that for most women have an obvious answer, yet it is something that many men do not fully understand: "Why do women have so many pairs of shoes?" This subject can often be found as the brunt of jokes or even the root of large arguments between spouses. Although greatly misunderstood, the numerous array of shoes has a purpose, and every pair is meaningful.
One of the most misunderstood of all shoe styles is the lady's high heel. The shoe, although often associated with the "playboy" type women, is a very elegant and appropriate shoe. High heels show off a woman's feminine side quickly. Despite the feminine side of heels, they can be quite painful and somewhat a hassle when the heel proceeds to break while walking amongst a crowd; but it is all worth it when a woman feels the power that comes with her heels.
High heels are a must for any occassion, such as weddings, dates, or anywhere she may want to impress someone.
Boots are usually thought of as the army-style kind, but have been re-vamped with a feminine twist by adding different details. The most noticeable feature of this style of footwear is the shape of the toe. Since the rest of the shoe is not ordinarily seen the toe's shape is essential to her outfit. Another detail that makes the boot unique is height of the heel. It ranges from a sexy stiletto to a graceful flat. Boots are versatile, and can go with a skirt, blue jeans, and dress pants, just to name a few.
"Even ladies with awful legs, like huge columns, they get very masked by the boot. The best idea for covering up terrible mistakes of nature is the boot."
Boots can also be worn for height and of course style too. I've found this shoe is very uncomfortable, but looks the best even if some comfort is sacrificed.
In addition to boots, athletic shoes are an extremely popular style of shoe. The look can vary from one pair to another, but each has a similar appearance. The slightly raised heel, curved-shaped toe, or blatant brand name logos all add to the appeal of the athletic shoe. The main attraction to this shoe its comfort, it has great foot support, and is useful for everyday wear.
The next style of shoe is reminiscent of early ballet shoes. "Flats" have for years been referred to as "old lady" shoes. This shoe has a lot more to offer than just comfort for r ankles, knees, and calves. These shoes also offer class. The clothing industry now provides women with numerous flat styles, from dressy to casual. Flats are a must for anyone's wardrobe because they are simple, practical, and slip-on easily.
The final style are sandals, they are typically flat, with no arch support. (I know that from personal experience.) In more recent trends, they've had a small kitten or a platform heel. The comfort level of these shoes is incomparable to others. Sandals are worn usually during the summer. However, the various styles allow for flexibility throughout the seasons. These shoes, once only seen as summer footwear, have transformed into a year-round staple.
Shoes are no longer confined to a handful of styles; they're available in every conceivable style and made for any occasion. We perform a variety of daily activities, all of which require different footwear. I hope that all men out there will become a little more understanding and tolerable of the numerous shoe supply crowding his side of the closet. It is a demanding world and a woman must wear the right footwear to take it on.
