A SHOELESS AFFAIRE

I love shoes. And while I keep some minimal single straps in black and beige to make sure that I have an elegant and understated shoe that would go with any of my outfits, I LOVE and collect shoes with character. 

I love the futuristic designs, the unexpected textures, the geometric heels. I always say that you can tell a lot by a person’s shoe. And if I see an unexpected color or shape in someone’s shoes, I am all eyes and interested. I reason that it requires some serious confidence to pull off that shoe and I also think that that person is most likely an artist at heart with a healthy sense of humor and a non – conformist mindset. All of which are music to my heart. I like people that are comfortable with themselves. And speaking of comfort when it comes to shoes, I also like people who are comfortable in their shoes :-)

Jokes aside, whatever shape the shoe is, I have one rule that I never deviate from: they have to be comfortable. I always loved high heels and while I first pick a shoe because it appeals to me visually, I try it on and inspect it carefully and if they are not comfortable and have an unstable center of gravity, then off they go.

And that’s what I like about these mules from Rita’Shoes Collection. They have a classic shape and their texture gives them an understated elegance that endures the fads of fashion. They are executed flawlessly, and despite their 4 inch heel they have a very precise center of gravity that makes them sturdy and balanced. These shoes are timeless, comfortable, and the epitome of workmanship. I qualify that as functional art.

 

Thank you so much for reading.
