This Week in Fashion: The Perfect Brown Shoes

June 23, 2010

First of all, I have to say that brown shoes have come a long ways from the boring, unattractive styles, that made you look too conservative and just plain dull.  I probably already talked about these, so forgive me if you’ve already seen them.  If this is the first time I’m spotlighting them, you’re in for a treat.  They are gorgeous, sexy, and they come packed with loads of compliment.

I entered the workforce in 1987 and experienced with mostly different styles of high heel pumps some with ankle straps (Mary Jane’s), and some without.  I tried incorporating sling backs, but I really couldn’t get into the styles back then.

When we take a close look at shoe styles and designs the selection is phenomenal at best.  From the thickest to the thinnest heel.  From single soul to platforms over 3 inches.  From 2-inch high heels to the extreme 6+ inch high heel.  To me anything above 6 inches is a fetish shoe…just too much shoe for me.

So, about a couple of months back (April), I stumbled across these from Qupid that I grabbed from  And get this, they were marked down to $12.99.  When I first looked at these my initial thought was they didn’t quite have what I was going for.  Remember that was my first initial thought.  Upon looking at them again, and because I was looking for “the perfect brown shoes” I changed my mind when I thought of the possibilities they had.

These are a patent leather, with a 5-inch heel and a full 1-inch platform.  It is a double T-strap with the straps going down both sides of the shoe and a wide band to cover the shoes.  Has a cushioned foot bed, fully adjustable strap, and I probably mentioned it before, but the platform makes wearing these shoes easier and comfortable.

I like wearing these with my brown and my multi-color stripped capri pants with a nice top that pairs up the shoes just right.  When I’m not wearing these shoes with capri pants, I have a sexy brown sheath dress that draws attention to the entire ensemble.  I don’t wear too many accessories, preferring to keep in subtle.  So when I wear the sheath dress with the shoes, I’ll usually go with my multi-color gold watch that my daughter bought me for Christmas last year. 

Funny thing about the workforce is that it continues to change and we change with it, keeping up with new trends and what can be incorporated into the office.  Aside from having the classic black pump in your wardrobe, let’s not overlook just how far brown shoes have come.  They are stretching beyond what we’ve ever imagined and designers are wowing us throughout the years of the past and the future, always leaving us wanting more.

So the next time you’re out shopping for shoes, don’t over look the color brown.  You’ll be surprised at what you find.
