Converse: the perfect shoe to wear with anything, anywhere.

You know that Sunday when you really do not want to wear heels, or that Tuesday when you refuse to wear flats? Those days are the days when you can wear Converse, flat enough to not be heels but you can dress them up so it doesn’t even look like you’re wearing sneakers.

“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world”; Very aptly said by the great Marilyn Monroe, right shoes even at the wrong time with the wrong attire can overturn the situation, such is the power they wield.

Stilettos, wedge heels, and platforms are every girls’ magic wand, no matter how painful they might get, they will stand tall with a smile on their face; however times are changing, slow and steady but I can see the change. Comfort is finally starting to gain a little bit of importance when it comes to footwear and guess who the happiest person is- ME of course! Do not get me wrong- I do love them 7-inches killer heels, but I also beg for comfort, especially on a rainy/icy day, when one has to walk miles, stay on feet for entire day/night, flats come to my rescue!

Oh Glorious SHOES!

OMG!

Oh Glorious Shoes!

The warm weather is almost here and I am so gushing over heels. Yes my summer heels.

I wear heels from Fall, Winter, to Spring and Summer. I love heels and how they lengthen your body and give you a new platform to view the world from. So did you see JustFab.com lately? They are doing a great job, I might say myself, on their new summer collection of heels. Bright colours mixed with patterns and prints. Heels are to be worn with everything, in my opinion, even with a bathing suit if you are headed to the pool or to the beach this summer. Its sexy, alluring, an attention getter in every way (hint). Look below at some of my favourites.

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. Memorial Day has also become a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race. – Wikipedia.com

I think with the increasing trends in Hi-Top sneaker design and popularity, everyone in the industry is trying to get involved in the action.

Heritage and style collide in the latest Nike Sportswear summer footwear collection with Liberty. One of Nike’s most coveted collaborations, it will celebrate the legacy and evolution of the brand’s running innovations over four remarkable decades of style.
