The proverb says you have to walk a mile in another man’s shoes to truly understand him. Our shoes have been with us through all of our journeys, whether as a source of comfort or of pain, symbolic of where we have been and where we are going. So it is no wonder that for women our shoes are so much more than utilitarian, they are an expression of who we are. Having come so far to claim our place as more than simply barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, our shoes are representative of the path we have come by–strong yet sleek, sexy, and sophisticated–with a design demanding of a skill and grace to effortlessly endure what few men could walk a few steps in, let alone a mile.
There is something reliable about a shoe. When you first try it on, it’s either a fit or not, but you are spared the indignity of those three way mirrors that dramatize the lasting evidence of your dietary indiscretions. You walk away with a true companion that, even on your “fat days,” with the right attitude and a little strut, can make you feel sexy. Though some women remain faithful to the long lines that stilettos lend to their legs, others are overjoyed by the recent craze of the wedge and ballerina flats, which now allow us to be both stylish and admittedly more comfortable. Whether it’s for the perfect business attire, a day of shopping, or a night out on the town, selecting the perfect shoe is all about expressing yourself and finding what makes you feel your best, transcending a mere accessory into something far greater. Here are some of our favorite shoes for the Journey of Life.
