5 Shoes Every Woman Should Own

The right shoes can make or break an outfit. Here are 5 classic pairs that can see you through every occasion and are a must for every wardrobe. 

We love the shoes. It’s no secret. Peeps, pumps and pretty kittens are all welcome here. And the more the merrier. But sometimes, just sometimes, a lady can get distracted by the shiny, feather fairing, sky-high heels and ignore the everyday basics. So, it’s time to ensure your shoedrobe foundation is set right.

Here are five pairs that can see you through every occasion and are a must for your wardrobe. For now, let’s forget about foot floozies and focus on the long term pairs - those closet companions that are committed to getting us through every day (bless them).

While I do believe that the more shoes the merrier, there are 5 key styles that can get you just about any moment.

1. Coloured ballet flats
Scoot from point a to b in the chicest way possible in a pair of cute ballet flats. Black ballets make for a classic go-to shoe but a pop of colour makes for a fun and confident statement. This season I'd recommend dabbling in berry hues with a touch of metallic gold or silver.

2. Black heels
The staple shoe in any woman's wardrobe. A match for more outfits than you can possibly imagine, this is a worthy investment shoe. And, at shoesofprey.com you can have your foundation heel exactly as you like it. Although the outside is very classic (closed toe, closed back, 3 inch heel) you can opt for a thicker heel, pointed or round toe, embellishments or a coloured lining for your eyes only.

3. Nude pumps
The illusion of longer legs is but a nude high heel away. Perfect for semi casual through to evening, these shoes are also delightfully trans-seasonal. Try them with black opaque tights for a graphic, cool statement or with bare legs in Summer to elongate those lovely pins.

4. Cork wedges
The ultimate in comfortable, casual shoes the cork wedge is a warmer weather wardrobe hero. Dress them up by either adding height or using metallic materials for the straps.

5. Black ankle boots
Toughen up floaty dresses, complete that edgy leather look with black ankle boots or simply finish off that boardroom outfit. Brilliant for keeping yourself in chic heels while keeping your toes warm.
