What Are Considered Essential Shoes For Women?

As tempting as it may be to take a note from Carrie Bradshaw and stock your wardrobe with sequins, platforms and stilettos, these are definitely not an everyday option. Yes, they look fabulous, but when will you wear them? And if you do get the opportunity to squeeze your foot into a stiletto, you’ll most likely regret your choice within minutes.

We’re aware shoes can dress up any outfit, but there’s only a few styles a woman needs to elevate an outfit, comfortably walk in and to last more than one season. Here, Forbes Footwear explain what are considered essential shoes for women.

Daily sandals

Sandals are an essential now that summer is approaching, and you can’t look further than Birkenstocks when discussing sandals. A daily sandal which you can easily slip your foot into is an essential. The Birkenstock Mayari are a fabulous option as they have criss-crossing adjustable straps to keep your foot nice and snug, without being overly complicated like other sandal designs. The Mayari comes in a range of colours, but we can’t go past a playful, shimmer like Graceful Taupe.

Casual kicks

A chic, minimalistic white shoe is a must for many women and will “step up any ‘fit” (as the kids say). A white sneaker like Taos Plim Soul Leather can be rocked year-round and looks great with jeans, shorts or even a dress. To be honest, there isn’t an outfit we’ve seen that doesn’t look great with a cute pair of casual sneakers.

A running sneaker

Investing in a functional pair of running sneakers is one of the best things one can do for themselves. New Balance has been at the top of the running shoe world since 1906 and it’s easy to see why they’re still a favourite. The New Balance W1080 put comfort and functionality first, without skimping out in the style department. A great option for running, walking or even a coffee date.

Winter boots

Every woman needs a sophisticated pair of boots which naturally becomes a staple once the colder weather creeps in. Our pick is Klouds Dahlia. They feature a small heel, making these gems appropriate for a night out, office wear or even daily wear. With adequate arch support, a soft leather and they allow for your own orthotics it’s hard to find a better boot which serves class and comfort.

Shoes have the power to make or break an outfit. With this in mind, if you have the right essentials, you’ll be able to elevate any outfit, any time of the year. There’s no need to stress about finding the perfect essentials for your foot. Let the experts at Forbes Footwear do it for you!
