The shoes we wear have a major impact on our feet. Although we sometimes cram our feet into shoes that are too small, wear flats that make us feel like we're walking on the ground or struggle to survive in a pair of heels all day long, I believe our feet are probably the most important part of our body as far as support. If we damage them, it impacts the rest of the body and we will find difficulty in getting around.
We should take better care of our feet. I know a decent pair of gym shoes are best for my feet but I only wear mine on my lazy days or when I am doing something athletic because gym shoes have never really been my style. I love a good flat when I am being casual and a variety of heels when dressing up.
I wear a pair of flats just about everyday, so I know it's important for me to invest in a high quality pair instead of wasting money by purchasing a cheap pair that I'll have to replace every few months. So I have the Michael Kors Fulton flats. I love them so much that I purchased them twice and will probably buy another pair later this year. I will also invest in heels that I know I will wear often as heels are tricky. They are both a pleasure and a pain.
Heels keep your body balanced and they keep your feet from being flat. However, they can also hurt your feet after wearing them too long and if you're not used to them, you will find yourself tripping and possibly falling in them. Heels are definitely my favorite pair of shoes, as they speak to my style and boost my confidence in many ways.
When you know how to identify a good investment in a pair of shoes, you don't mind the price because you know it's worth it. This is why it's important to have good taste. Take style blogger, Find Me Those Heels for example. She was excited when she invested in her first pair of Christian Louboutin's and has even taken pictures to reflect on those memories. It is an accomplishment to have the ability to invest in high quality, as not everyone can.
Fortunately, investing doesn't always mean you have to spend over your budget either. As Find Me Those Heels mentions, you can purchase luxury pairs for less online. You will often find luxury for less when the items are gently used but that's the capability of high quality, it lasts. Companies aren't always trying to take your money. Knowing the value of high quality and learning your style will make shopping a fun experience.
