Here’s what the 3 of us – verynice, mt and dawn has to say.

Out of hundreds of women and teenagers I see on a daily basis, less than 10 of them managed to catch my attention successfully. Their feet scream for help and they look disgustingly distorted by those ugly things wrapping around their foot.

Yes, they’re sadly known as shoes.

I definitely know, I loathe kitten heels. They don’t flatter your legs and I wonder why Singaporean women love wearing them. Irks me to death, with their hideous appearance and dull ‘klock klock’ sound they make. Why buy kitten heels? Kitten heels are for the lazy and to me, it’s just a tiny gesture to appear professional to fit into the typical ‘OL’ appearance. (Office Lady)

I love shoes. I adore them.

I love that tingle that travels from your toes to your thighs, when you slip on that pair of shoes that has that perfect fit. That feeling that makes you go into a bit of a daze and you feel woozy. You hear yourself whispering softly to yourself,” Yes…Yes.. I’m so gonna buy you. Do you have a new piece?”

My shoe avatar was one of the shoes that took most of my breath away. I felt breathless holding it in my hands. 😀

I love collecting shoes like hello kitties and placing them in boxes.

This is the revelation of a shoe addict.

Well, you can check whether you’re a shoe addict with the following points:

  1. Has more than 40 pairs of shoes
  2. Roll your eyes when your boyfriend goes “Buy so many shoes for what, you only have 1 pair of feet!”
  3. Stares at someone’s shoes for a good 5 seconds if you like it, trying to keep your mouth close simultaneously
  4. You do not buy kitten heels at all. Note, at all.
  5. Your darling babies get constantly praised when you strut in them.
  6. Have the mentality that it doesn’t matter whether your shoes match your outfit. Who cares? Your shoes rock your outfit.
  7. Have at least one pair of SM / rock looking shoes.
  8. Height does not matter. You still wear them even though you’re 1.7

I love shoes (heels, especially) and I often daydream of spending my life in gorgeous, towering heels. You know, those that are often spotted on famous Hollywood celebs or models on runways. But let’s not get carried away now…

With the range of shoes that Singapore has, it’s quite impossible to ever make my dream come true, sadly.  The design range here in Singapore… is simply not enough to make me go WOW!

Everyone definitely (most probably, anyway) owns a pair of Charles & Keith, so that makes them everywhere on the streets. I’m not saying that their shoes ain’t pretty – they are, sometimes – but I just happen to prefer exclusivity. 🙂

And exclusivity, in my sense, means shoes that crave attention, validation and respect!

Don’t you love it when people tell you “Hey! Gorgeous shoes! Where did you get them from?”

Or, “Hey! Love those shoes! Adorable!”

These praises are seriously priceless and my face instantly lights up like this : D

It not only goes to show that I have good taste in shoes (Ahem! Or so I would like to believe), it also proves that my shoes are attention worthy and people NOTICE them shoes. My shoes, at that. 🙂

Now, take a walk down the row of shops at Far East Plaza and you’d notice most of them carry the shoes of similar designs (again! Why?!). Errr.. Yes, exactly. Brings me back to my point of preferring exclusivity!

Seriously, these soles of ours need to be given the well-deserved VIP treatment apart from the usual foot spa/pedicure stuff. I mean, if we can pamper our bodies with LBDs (Little Black Dresses), our head/hands with accessories, why can’t we do the same for our feet and doll them up?!

The mentality of a true blue shoeaholic?

You don’t really give a damn even if you’re dressed like the average Jane, because you know for a fact that your heels ROCK your outfit so much so that people are secretly staring at you. Your feet. With envy 🙂

I was never mad about shoes. Never did love or loathe any madly.

I don’t really like heels as well, since my sheer and the shortness of my friends/boyfriends just didn’t allow me to wear any of them. Kitten heels are just plain dumb and ugly to me, stilettos would have never be able to tahan my weight.

Having wide feet meant I hated buying flats from Charles & Keith, URS and the likes of them. Hated how tight my feet were. But where was a poor student like me gonna find the money to buy expensive shoes catered to wide feet? Sandals are a chore to wear, having to buckle/unbuckle, tie/untie if the need to remove them arises.

You know what fits me the best? Slippers. Yet I really hate wearing Havaianas to school or outside (unless the event/activity calls for it), just feel under dressed when I do that. IMHO, the best slippers ever invented are still Birkenstocks J Easy, comfortable, yet not too ugly looking – able to look fashionable (casual) at all times. Comes in all colours, designs and fittings. Best for the lazy me; slip on and off for a day of shopping!

Even though I hardly buy shoes unless I really need them, hardly look at shoes unless they are really nice. I love to look at what the other girls are wearing on the streets, most of the time when I see really terrible looking combinations or weird trends, I would LOVE to have a good laugh with my friends. So in my future posts, you could probably trust me to note the general trends in SG and the weird, ugly and plain disgusting shoes some girls wear.
