Meet my Shoes
Blog posts: 27
I love shoes.
Seriously, who does not? They keep your feet dry, warm and cozy and save you from losing your toes due to frostbite in the winter.
Shoes are great, and even beyond them being quite practical... there's just more to them. Something... magical. And even though I possess no grace whatsoever on high heels, I'm very fond of shoes.
Ever since I've decided not to wear leather anymore, that has both changed and... not.
What has changed:
In the past, I could spend a lot of time unable to decide between two pairs of black boots. Very similar looking boots. Black. Now there might only be one pair of black boots, but I take it happily because I wanted to have black boots. Plus, "normal" shoe stores cannot lure me into spontaneous shopping frenzy anymore, so it makes me feel kind of cool and in control ;-) You won't believe it, but shoe shopping has gotten so much easier.
What has not changed:
I still buy more shoes than I can wear. And every once in a while, shopping frenzy raises its ugly head. I mean, seriously, how often can you wear pink satin ballerinas? But, hey, they were on sale...
I don't know if you're vegan or vegetarian, but let me tell you one thing: If you're afraid to give up leather shoes because it might be hard to find good-looking vegan alternatives... it's not. You just have to know where to look.
I order most of my shoes online, and my favorite brand is Vegetarian Shoes, a store in Brighton. Another shop, a little bit more fancy, is Beyond Skin. They smell incredibly and their wrapping is like the incarnation of Christmas.
You find a whole bunch of good stores for vegan shoes online – just give it a google.
And of course, you can always stick to your Chucks :-)
