Almost every shoe I own has its own little back story. It’s not always about picking the pretty ones from the shelf and charging them to a credit card. Some of them I bought on a great day out, some were a gift from someone special, and some marked specific moments in my life.
I want you to tell me your shoenique story – one pair of shoes that have a specific story behind them.
Let me know about a pair of shoes that mean a lot to you, whether you bought them yourself or were given them as a gift. I love hearing about people’s favourite pair, because more often than not there’s a lovely story to go with them. I’ll kick this off with mine…
These are my first pair of Irregular Choice heels. My ugly duckling shoes. Before these, I wore plain and boring heels all the time. Then they came along and my shoe collection blossomed into crazy colours and several sizes of glitter. I think I owe all my shoe fanaticism (in a good way) to Irregular Choice because it’s where it all started.
They’re also the shoe I picked to wear for my very first date with Simon. He walked to my house to pick me up and we went to the best Chinese restaurant in town (he paid!). I chose them because I was so nervous and needed something to give me some confidence. Shoes always seem to do that, and these didn’t let me down. Almost 5 years later we’re still together and he’s still the first person I show new pairs to. Not that he can avoid it…sorry Simon!
