Welcome to this week's edition of Friend Fridays, sponsored by ModlyChic.
1.What is your go-to pair of shoes?
I have a few pairs of shoes that are my go-to, depending on the season.
In the summer, my flip-flops, unstylish as they may be, are my go-to for commuting and running errands.
Year-round, I have a few pairs of flats that I wear for everything from commuting, running errands, work, casual social outings, etc.
I have had trouble lately with heels, so while I have a few pairs of heels that I truly love, they just aren't my go-to shoes anymore.
2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions?
Comfort is huge. Most of my heels are relegated to "sitting at my desk all day," but I would love to be able to wear them when I'm going out.
Price is also very important. Sure, I'm more than willing to pay more for a good-quality shoe that won't kill my feet. But I'm also the kind of person that wants quantity. (Sure, I know that quality is more important, but I'm just being truthful -- I still want lots of stuff!) If saving on one pair of shoes means I can get a second pair, I'll opt for Payless everytime.
3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
While I do own several shoes in fun colors, black is still the primary color in my shoe-drobe. Black flip-flops, black flats, black sneakers, black heels, black booties, black boots, and other shoes that have black in the pattern.
4. When it comes to design shoes what are your favorite brands and why?
I'm not really brand-loyal when I buy my shoes. I really just buy what I want/need and what feels good. I love the styles of Steve Madden shoes for fun, and I love the classic lines and shapes of Nine West shoes. The high-schooler in me still loves Doc Martens, and I think I may need to buy myself a new pair of combat boots for the adult me. On the cheaper side, I also often tend to be drawn to Fioni shoes when I'm at Payless.
5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?
A magical stiletto that made my legs a mile long that I could walk and stand in for hours on end without sore feet or back and neck pain.
