What Your Favorite Shoes Say About You: Great Insights For All Women

On Easter Monday, I decided to clean and arrange our shoe storage room. As I arranged the shoes, I couldn’t help smiling at the different colors, designs, shapes, etc of the shoes in there. They represent our different personalities (my daughter and I). And yes, your favorite shoes say a lot about you.


After arranging the shoe storage room, I couldn’t help noticing that my daughter has more shoes than me (and she’s only 19). Her shoe collection includes different types and colors of sneakers, flats, boots, and brogues.

My collection includes wedges, flats, block-heel pumps, and two or three pairs of sneakers. I also have several pairs of embellished shoes.

The difference in our shoe collections is that my daughter and I have totally different personalities and tastes. In addition, she’s a teenager and so, her style differs greatly from mine.

What Your Favorite Shoes Say About You

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, your favorite shoes can say a lot about you. And by the way, your favorite clothes also say a lot about you.
