We have a general fashion thread, as well as one for J fashion, makeup, etc.
How about a shoe thread!
Any shoe lovers here?
Any brands you recommend?
Any shoes on your wishlist?
Any you think are absolutely ugly?

Shoes are the one area I personally fall behind in. I’m tall so I usually just wear flats or vans. Trying to wear more sophisticated and interesting shoes moving forwards and I’d like to hear your opinions! I did search in a case a thread like this already existed and nothing came up

Like I said, I know it’s basic but I live in Vans. I have like 8 pairs in different colors and designs. They’re just so damn comfortable.

What are some comfortable shoes I can wear with socks that look normal with skirts? I like socks, but I have so many skirts that don't get enough wear because I don't feel like breaking out flats with those tiny socks. I have some boots, but I'd like something more appropriate for summer.

Depends on your style (mine is a bit preppy) but I wear Mary Janes, pennyloafers or oxfords with socks and skirts/dresses. Not really wear basic anklets though, they tend to have frilly trims or cuts to look more dressy.

Where do you guys normally get your shoes? I'm looking into more minimalist shoes or black oxfords like >>83115 that are more high quality than fast fashion shops, but I don't live in an area with dedicated shoe shops beyond Clarks.

I really like the chunkiness of the heels, but puckering from the elastic is a buzzkill, especially on the black pair. The nude ones are cool, though.

What sort of shoes do you wear in hot, humid weather when you have to walk a lot? I'm going to Japan in summer and I don't want to wear flimsy sandals or flip flops when I'll be on my feet all day because I'll definitely get blisters. Are there any brands that are particularly comfy with solid soles? And that can be worn with dresses/skirts? I can't wear sneakers for that reason, they don't suit my outfit. I don't need anything super pretty but they have to somewhat match.

I even bought pic related in anticipation kek. I know, I know, they're crocs and crocs are the worst, but to be fair people wear the fuck out of them in Japan and the cut/colour matches my clothes nicely. But they don't quite fit right so they're not as comfy as they should be.

I love high heels and I have no problem wearing them in autumn and winter. But when the weather starts getting warmer I can't wear my high heel sandals because I get blisters all over my feet. It doesn't matter how old those shoes are or from which material they are made. Literally every sandal hurt my feet and I can't do anything. My doctor told me it is a combination of sweat, rubbing and too sensitive skin.

Does anybody have the same problem and can give me some tipps?

If you're hot enough, you can wear basically anything you want. There's that saying about pulling off a trash bag as a dress.
Also different scenes and areas have different norms. I don't own any of these but I bet I could rock them in my area on a friday night without any strange looks and with plenty of compliments. But if I wore some of the other shoes in this thread, I would get strange looks. Fashion is different everywhere.

I splurged on these during a Ted Baker sale.

These are lovely. Almost all my shoes are literally vans haha. I think the vans authentic especially look great after being worn in, but I even love the look of them when they are falling apart to fuck. The vans old skool hi are nice too and really comfy and wear a lot longer than the authentic. My authentic pairs last about a year and a half max, but I do wear the shit out of them like every day.

I mostly just hate people who wear vans as some kind of skater touch to le quirky girly outfit and have the huge skater shoes with like a dress or whatever? Really specific people I see do it and it looks so clunky and 2010. Can't go wrong with a plain pair of black/white (not checkered imo) vans and I think the authentic ones like your pic are the only ones that sometimes look good with neat designs like this. Otherwise they look very pander-y and the special edition ones are always work by the ~so quirky gamer girlz

I got a pair of Cole Haans very similar to these years ago at a discount store and they're starting to show some signs of wear. I love the look of very masculine cut Oxfords, especially with a little thicker sole because these are very comfortable. Where can I find something like them that aren't $160+ a pair, in any color? I typically would save up but I'm just starting a new job so I need a replacement sooner than I can do that. If you do have the cash, I would definitely recommend them though, I walk at least a mile a day and wear them often- the sole has only started to wear down after 6 years of semi regular wear.

Apply some bandages over the areas where there might be friction.
My first pair where the Polley shoes, and now I also own the 1460 boots.

Breaking them in was a bitch, but now they're the comfiest shoes I own.

This, I also found that conditioning the leather with mink oil seemed to make the process a bit faster too.

I'll try this but I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to remember bandaids while in the process of rushing out the door. The Polleys look like they're meant to be worn without socks too, that must have been really painful!

Mine are actually vegan leather - not sure if that'll make a difference

I just got my first pair of docs recently too. My mum got me a pair of vegan 3989s as a random gift. I was so shocked because they aren't cheap and she isn't rolling in cash but she insisted. I was thinking I'd have to spend winter wearing an old pair of £13 boots from new look.

Clarks might be worth checking out, though the pair I had only lasted 2-3 years.

My sales rep told me you can't use oil on the vegan shoes. She said something about a water based spray. I think it's the patent cleaner from looking at their website.

I tried wearing the Polleys with shoe liners, but even a quick run to the store ended up destroying the back of my feet lol

Ended up buying some cute socks from aliexpress instead.

you have any recs for winter boots, docs or such, we have actually cold and slippery winters here and my last shoes broke.

I wouldn't recommend docs for winter, it's the fastest way to lose your teeth lol docs are extremely slippery on snow, especially this freezed morning snow. Last winter I literally tip-toed every day through an uphill to my school because it was so damn slippery in docs. They're warm enough though.
I have secondhand Timberland winter trekking boots and they're amazing. Super warm. Not very presentable though, if you need to look clean-cut or whatever. But I think they have some charm combined with a thick sweater. The mountain chick look

Not the prettiest, but Ariat's extreme waterproof boots are amazing. They're fully insulated and I've walked through soggy, melting snow and stayed perfectly dry after keeping up with reapplying waterproofing every few months. If you have a tack shop near you, they often sell them cheaper than online. I don't even ride horses but I wear English paddock boots all the time because they're cute but actually durable.

Bought another pair of these despite that my previous one’s heels caved in due to one of the heels being very hollow due to shit quality. But they’re so comfy during the cold season and are easy to walk in.

Anon it's time to love yourself. You can find other, better options than shitty Hot Topic boots that cave in at the heel.

I saw your post days ago and I've been perplexed ever since.

bump for winter months. does any one have any go-to lesser alt style stores for boots that arent unif/dollskill? ive been trying to buy a pair or boots for moths and i cant seem to find a pair for me

Any flat footed anons here? My feet literally make all of my shoes end up deformed I hate it and I don't know what I should wear. I got a pair of Dr. Martens last year and the boots look good but they look deformed now do to my feet pointing inwards.

Harley Davidson? I have the two on the left n I love them! But I live in a place where it hardly dips below 50 degrees F so idk if they are ideal for winters.
