Sole curry- PLEASE get your shoe names right
“I have too many shoes..” said no woman ever! The problem is not in the number, but in the nomenclature. The well-heeled fashionista knows her shoes as well. Here are some common types of shoes – with their proper names – so you know your corset heels from your Espadrilles.
Ankle-strap heels – These very-much-in-trend footwears have a strap that goes around the ankle, making the heels more secure and comfy to trot around. Wear them with a crisp and slinky formal dress or business suits to be the belle of the ball.
Cut out heels – Getting more on the wacky, funky, cool side of high heel types, cut out heels are any type of heel that has a portion of the upper cut out for effect. Perfect for an edgy look, wear cut outs for extreme drama. You are sure to grab eyeballs and how!
Peep-toe Espadrilles – Espadrilles are basically cloth sneakers with a canvas or cotton fabric upper with a jute sole. And if they show off a pedicure, then they are peep-toe espadrilles.
Wedge Sandals – Wedge sandals have a more open upper part with a strap to secure your globe-trotting feet. This versatile footwear goes well with anything – except of course, formals. But you knew that, didn’t you?!
Corset Heels – Any footwear that has the two sides tied together as a traditional corset would be, will amp up your oomph quotient much like what inspires this name. Wear these with shift dresses and keep the focus on the feet.
High-Heeled Boots – Steve Miller said, “In the wintertime when all the trees are brown, wear high heeled boots”. Okay, we made that last part up. But these babies pair well under or over jeans or even with a skirt or dress.
Booties – Making their comeback within the last few years, ankle booties, that flirt with your ankles, are great for fall days when a full boot is overkill.
Chunky Heels – This is the general term for any heel with a wider base that is typically square. They’re usually on the short to medium side, and provide more stability than traditional high heels or stilettos. Wear these with palazzos or wide pants.
Combat boots – Combat boots are basically military boots designed to be worn by soldiers during combat or combat training. But we wear them with boyfriend jeans to assert we are militant about being on top of trend charts!
