A Shoe Investment Portfolio: What to Look For When Buying Shoes

 

There is no shopping more comforting for me than shoe shopping! My height is 160cm and so any pair of shoes that increases my height and is comfortable enough for me to walk confidently in for an extended period of time is a blessing. 

In this post, I am listing shoes that you need for every occasion and ones that are as comfortable as they are beautiful, elegant, and sexy.

For this shoot I am wearing,

+ Christian Siriano Dress

+ Elie Saab Belt

+ Balmain Leather Jacket

1. Sneakers

I know that there are so many great options out there but after trying so many sneakers from so many brands with different prices ranges, I narrowed my list to two:

Louis Vuitton RUN AWAY Sneakers

I LOVE Louis Vuittons' Run Away sneakers; they are my most favorite comfort shoes when I want to dress up and yet need to be comfortable to walk for hours with a little bit of height.

Besides the fact that these shoes have the most elegant look a pair of sneakers can have, they have a hidden slanted wedge (like a 5 cm heel) built inside that gives you a height in which your heels are higher than your toes! This shape of wedge brings your buttocks higher and gives your legs a sexier shape than wearing a pair of sneakers with a flat platform does.

The best part of it is that not only this hidden slanted wedge makes you look taller, but also it is extremely comfortable to wear and walk for a long time.

Depending on which country you buy these sneakers from, the retail price of these sneakers range from  $610 to $900 after tax. These sneakers are a little pricy but they are a great investment as they have a classic design that you can dress up and dress down and if you spray Saphir's Super Invulner Spray on them, these sneakers will be water and stain proof and maintain their look for many years.

Adidas Original SUPERSTAR Shoes

The most comfortable shoes I have ever worn are the Adidas Original Super Star shoes. At a retail price of $80, I think these are the most comfortable, stylish, and affordable sneakers in the market. Adidas never disappoints: I love their clean and modern designs that always come with quality at a great price.

2. Pumps

You must have pumps in at least 3 colors: black, nude, and red. Patent black pumps are the essential and first pair you must buy. Below are some of my most favorite shoe designers for pumps

Gianvito Rossi

The most comfortable and elegant pumps are the ones for Gianvito Rossi. You can walk long distances in these pumps. Below are some of the latest available from them,

Gianvito Rossi Silver 105 mm, €483.61

Christian Louboutin

The sexiest pumps in the market are those 'Red Soles' of Louboutin's. There are three styles of pumps that I love in Christian Louboutin,

+ So Kate: with a 120mm heel, this style is the sexiest in the whole shoe industry, but I find the 'So Kate' style to be the most uncomfortable among the three pumps of Louboutin

+ Pigalle Follies: 100 mm heel, sexy and more comfortable compared to 'So Kate'

+ Iriza: 100 mm heel, the most comfortable among the three and the most elegant that is sexy as well. This style runs big so take a size smaller.

Christian Louboutin Iriza 100 mm, $695.00

 Christian Louboutin So Kate 120mm, $745.00

Manolo Blahnik

The most elegant pumps is the market are the one for Manolo Blahnik: they are the Queen of shoes and make any lady wearing them the Queen of style. I love all the colors of the classic HANGISI Satin Jewel Buckle evening collection.

3. Sandals

The most comfortable high heels in the market are the one and only "TRIBUTE SANDALS" of Saint Laurent. Not only these sandals are one of the highest heel shoes, 135 mm high, but also you can walk with them on any surface for any amount of time with confidence and comfort. I know a friend of mine who has problems with her knees and she wears these sandals! That how comfortable these shoes are.

Definitely a great investment for every girl who wants to walk very tall with confidence and comfort.
