SFF’s Principles of Footwear

Posted on: October 23, 2009

I remember having a conversation with a friend wherein he asked me if I wanted his Tita to buy me shoes as she was going to the US. I politely declined because I want to buy MY shoes. Not because I was territorial or anything but mainly, for me, the best part in buying shoes (or anything for that matter) was the experience of getting into the store, walking through all the racks picking out the things that tickle my taste buds, asking the sales person to get me the sizes and colors of the shoes that I desire, fitting them one by one and picking out the best pairs, falling in love with these pairs, hearing that register print my receipt, carrying the paper bags home, opening them and breaking them in.

We also talked about how some wear shoes that aren’t right, so these Principles of mine came out in the conversation.

SFF’s 10 Principles of Footwear

1. If it’s a size smaller or bigger, no matter how gorgeous it is, put it back and let it go.

2. If you can’t imagine an outfit existing inside your closet that will match it, DO NOT buy it.

3. Invest on classic pieces – it’ll be very much worth all the money you spent for it.

4. Don’t spend to much on seasonal or “trend” shoes, they will NEVER come back in the same way.

5. Don’t buy shoes you can barely walk in – rather than looking good, you end up looking, well, having a weird limp.

6. Always have a classic black pair and a nude one – these go with anything.

7. Never leave a pair unused for more than 3 months, it’ll be brittle and useless (and heart-breaking).

8. If it gets soiled, clean it IMMEDIATELY. But make sure you clean it the right way.

9. As much as possible, AVOID buying the last pair.

10. Clean out your shoe closet at least once a year. By “clean-out”, I mean, get rid of the pairs that you haven’t worn for more than 3 months.

That’s it so far. I bet this list can still go on. These are just my own basic principles for my shoes.

Tata!
