Shoe mania is a common girls’ affliction, and I am no exception. My collection has more than 53 pairs of shoes. That only includes boxes I can count; I keep some pairs without boxes, like seasonal shoes (Uggs, etc.), and so it’s hard to keep track of those.
My shoe shopping is always impulsive. I never think about a particular brand, color, or occasion when I am looking for a pair. Spontaneity makes the buying process less stressful, more pleasant and widens the variety of my collection. I usually remember the circumstances, mood, and atmosphere which made me buy a particular pair; so, each one has a little story.
It is a well-known fact that New Yorkers walk at an average person’s jogging speed. It is completely true, and sometimes the jogging part turns into a race on an obstacles course, especially when your route passes a tourist attraction. With this in mind, I feel all the heels I buy should be as comfortable as they are good looking and fit for walking 30-40 blocks, no problem.
I would like to share 5 pairs I picked for you. They might not be the most valuable specimens in my collection but definitely some of my favorite heels and so New York:
I bought these precious heels in the winter season, 2012/13 at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City. Surprisingly enough, they survived the 30% sale period, and I bought them at a 50% discount, which is a rare thing. I take either a size 5 or 6 shoe, and so, there are usually not many choices for my feet.
