Why A Pair of Shoes For Everyday?
A Pair of Shoes For Everyday came about because people often admire the shoes and outfits that I wore. This blog is really about my own personal style.
In high school, I admired the shoe collection of one of my besties who had the most amazing shoe collection. I started collecting shoes in college from brands that I admired or styles that I liked from that time. My father also influenced the idea that shoes should be cared for and last a long time. As a child, I remember him getting his shoes done by a cobbler and the way he took care of his footwear investments. In 2007, while cleaning out my shoe collection, I realized that despite the beauty of some of the shoes that I had owned they also fell apart and their materials did not last a long time. I decided from then on that I would invest in shoes that would last a long time with proper care. That started my journey in finding shoes I can wear everyday.
The blog’s name is a play on Words. A Pair of Shoes for Everyday, meaning that I have pairs of shoes that are my go to pairs and they have been in my shoe wardrobe for years. As a result, people have asked me to share about them, the tips that I use to care for them, and where I shop for them. I often go to them to finish an outfit. The name also plays on the idea that I have shoes for every day. I do own many pairs of shoes but I do not own a pair of shoes for everyday of the year. I do not have the space to house them all.
