It's getting warm (thankfully) but the warmer weather means people are putting away the winter boots and rain boots, and are shlepping around the city with some *interesting* choices of footwear.
Yesterday I thought about covertly taking pictures of people's footwear, but I stink at surreptitiously taking pictures, so instead I offer up a multiple choice drawing. I make no excuses for the quality of the drawings. I'm not great at feet- oh wait, that was an excuse. Well, I won't make any more excuses.
*me biting my lip to keep from excusing the angle of the photo, the lighting, the handwriting*
So which do you think you would wear to shlep around the city?
b) ballerina shoes (can be sneaker based)
d) 1 inch or other low heals
e) 3 inch or higher heals
I'll tell you that in cool weather (above 45 degrees but below 60 degrees) or when I know I'll be on me feet all day, I'll wear sneakers and in warm weather (or for walking to work/short walks) I'll wear sneaker based ballerina slippers (from Adidas).
Some women (let's face it, men don't have as many options), wear their work shoes on their way to work, I am assuming so that they won't get their picture taken for FashVoMax magazine with a "What not to wear" sign over their feet (I happened across a magazine with a critique on footwear worn by people in NYC headed to work- sneakers? Totally not "what to wear," even if it's probably the best thing for your feet).
I keep my work shoes under my desk at work, and my coworkers do the same. We're smart like that (hey, we are all technically nerds, or geeks. I mean, we get excited about complex Excel formulas and pivot tables).
What would you wear?
