Hi, Heels

Long ago, when I was in kindergarten, my mum bought me a pair of really cute shoes. They were made from shiny black leather with buckles and had rounded toes, and I absolutely loved them. I called them my "shiny shoes". At that time, a lot of other children were wearing similar shoes, but the tips of their shoes were pointed. I asked my mum why she bought the rounded ones for me, and she told me it was to prevent my toes from being pinched together. (I still wonder if it's true or not, lol.)
Something like this.

When I started my formal education, well, there wasn't much choice in way of regulation footwear. My favourites were the triple strap ones that look like Converse high tops, but those were pretty hard to find, so I took really good care of them.

 Then a few years back, I started falling in love with shoes. Shoes with heels, to be exact. That was around the time I started going to college/university and could wear whatever I liked to school. I'd usually match my shoes with my outfits, so they usually ended up being black, white or something in between. Since then, I've acquired more than a few pairs of shoes/heels. Every time I step into a shoe shop, my dad stays as far away as possible. LOL

I call them my "strappy sandals".

These my booties and heels.

While these are under the "comfy shoes" category.

These days, although I'm fond of wearing wedge sandals, I still favour Mary Janes over other kinds of 'covered' shoes. Being approximately 158cm, I also dislike wearing flats or slippers.

But I do make exceptions.

Pink folding flats
These pink folding flats from The Little Things She Needs were bought all the way from Singapore, and I have to say, they have saved my poor feet on many occasions! (e.g. walking around in booties/high heels for more than 4 hours.) These extremely comfy foldable flats come in a handy pouch which is small enough to put in my bag, super convenient. :) The sole is made from very sturdy rubber, so I have no worries about walking through puddles or soft grassy surfaces. Even if they get dirty, a quick wash with soap and water does the trick.

Here's a bit of advice before concluding this post:

...so that you have enough space in your shoe rack! =P
