Women all over the world tend to own more pairs of shoes than their men counterparts. This is because women always keep up with the fashion trends. These changes are brought about by seasonal changes, timing and most of the trendsetters. The changes do not only affect the shoes but to other accessories such as clothes and dressing style. The one line of the women shoe that has however been on the fashion for long is the boot, the thigh-high boot.
What do women look for in a shoe?
As discussed above there are ladies known to own more than two hundred pairs of shoes and one can always wonder what drives them to such extends.
The first thing is the size, every woman out there wants to wear the right shoe size in order to feel comfortable. Due to body changes by the ladies, the shoe size might vary over a period of a year. For example, during pregnancies, the feet always tend to be bigger. This, therefore, necessitates the need to have a number of pairs to cover the changes. When considering the size things like the width, the length, and for the boots the calf size. Know your size and insist on those that feet comfortably.
Occasional wear is another factor that dictates the number of shoes a lady must have. Unlike men, women tend to have a specific shoe for a certain occasion. There is the girls’ night out shoe, the bedroom boot, the winter pairs, the office pairs and many other. This, however, has been explained as a way through which a woman is able to feel confident and bold.
Women have also been found to spend a lot on shoes just to complement what is in their wardrobes. That red dress has to go with some knee-high boots, or that pair of miniskirt jeans has to have a lace up thigh high boots for the summer. All these just end up adding more pairs to their shoe collections.
The price and value of the shoe, this is another thing that contributes largely to the many pairs a woman has. The celebrities and fashionistas dictate the value of the different types of shoe and a woman can ditch a nice shoe just because the market value has gone down.
