Shoes In History and 2011

2011 March 2

Shoes are as old as human kind and they were always an important part of people’s lives mostly for practical reasons. Fashion shoes became widely available in ancient Greece and Egypt. Women were having the same habit as women today, to have as many shoes as possible. However, there were still places where only wealthy people could afford shoes. High heel shoes were popular in Egypt but became a fashion icon in the 18 century. In more contemporary times, high heels were in fashion in 50’s, 70’s, 80’s, and early 90’s.

When it comes to heels, there are different types: stilettos, cone, puppy, kitten, wedge, etc. Stilettos are in fashion in 2011 so make sure you buy a pair. The great thing about these shoes is that they never really go out of fashion and they look amazing on your legs.

Wedge heels are also a must have this season because it seems that designers create and use them in their fashion shows. These were very trendy in the last years and although people don’t wear them so often they are still in trend. If you find them comfortable, you shouldn’t be afraid to wear them.

Platforms and high heels – With chunky heels and platforms you will look a bit extravagant if that’s what you are aiming for. However, if you are planning a feminine outfit, try to avoid these types of heels.

It seems that different patterns and color combinations on shoes are something designers loved to use this year. Some may look weird like those shoes with strange geometric heels and different textures, but if you want something special you should at least choose shoes that have two or even three colors on them. They give you a special naughty independent look, so if you are aiming for that, they are perfect.

Flat shoes are also in trend, especially sandals for this summer. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman; the sandals are in trend for both genders. You can choose ethnic sandals if you are into that trend or if you like gladiator style sandals you can always combine them with pants or a nice skirt. Ballerina shoes are again in fashion and this is mostly because they are a very confortable choice for any outfit. For an elegant look, you can always buy a pair of ballerina shoes that have romantic designs or different elegant patterns.

As you can see, shoes gained a lot of importance in fashion in the last 200-300 years and they are an important part of our look so make sure you always buy quality products.
