  • Solely shoes

    Shoes, shoes, shoes. There's just no getting enough of them. As we need new clothes for every season, we need new shoes to complement them. Shoe fanatics unite. Let?s discuss about shoes.



    Which are your favorite shops?

    Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?

    How do you care for your shoes?

    What are the must have (for you) this season?

    Pics, please! I want to be tempted.

    Which are your favorite shops?
    My shoes are mostly bought from Charles & Keiths. I also like Everbest pumps for work. But their designs have been very boring recently. I also like to shop at Americaya or URS for ideas. Some of the shoes are nice.

    Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?
    Most of my shoes are in black. Yeah, I know .. black is quite boring. I have one pair of slip-ons in moroon and another pair of wedges in beige. I'm trying to add a few more new colors to my shoes collection.

    How do you care for your shoes?
    After each use, i will clean and air them in the open before putting them back into the boxes. I will add in 1 or 2 (white ones, not colored) moth balls in each box.

    What are the must have (for you) this season?
    I'm looking for a pair of pumps(slings back or not), peep-toe (designs), wedges(yes! I love them!), cross-but-not-too-strappy heels, shoes with nice kitten heels(i'm missing my pair of (denim jeans material) shoes which I bought from Taipei ), a pair of sneakers and lastly, a pair of boots.

      Re: Solely shoes

      What a timely thread! I'm on the lookout for more shoes. I'm so in the mood to buy shoes now.


      Which are your favorite shops?
      Currently, VNC. Cheap and good. A pity it's quite out of the way for me.

      Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?
      Not really. Even if I have colours, it's splashes of colours on a neutral base. The boldest I dare venture is red. Otherwise, my colour palettes are black, brown, nudes mostly. I don't even dare wear white shoes!

      How do you care for your shoes?
      Don't really care for them. Like Huiping, I usually leave them in the open overnight and then keep them the next morning, where I take out another pair to wear. In my little shoe room, I put a jar of the Thirsty Hippo to absorb the moisture.

      What are the must have (for you) this season?
      I'm looking for nice working, comfortable sandals. I realise I don't have a pair of gorgeous sandals to wear.

      I'm also eyeing the Stuart Weitzman shoes forever! I used to hang out at Paragon and will definitely save some saliva for drooling at the shoes at the SW store there! I truly believe that expensive shoes are of good quality and can last me years. Cheap shoes are well, cheap and good for the pocket, but they hardly last me beyond 3 years.

      On my to-buy list is also a pair of Birkenstocks.

        VS - Bow Sandals


        VS - Peep Toe Kidskin Pump



        VS - Peep Toe Pumps


        VS- Knotted Slingback

        I'm lemming for some of these designs. Wished that VS has a store here.

          Re: Re: Solely shoes

          Too excited about pics. Here's mine

          Which are your favorite shops?
          Nine West and most recently VNC. There are so many designs at very affordable prices at the latter. Main problem though - wear out my first pair bought there within 3 months.

          Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?
          Relatively good array of colors but have not tried Red

          How do you care for your shoes?
          Don't take care of them at all. For work I usually end up wearing one pair to death each time.

          What are the must have (for you) this season?
          Wedges and sandals for me.

            Which are your favorite shops?

            No favourite shops but I do buy my shoes from the usual stores like VNC, Espirit, Xodus and sometimes like Celedon, Mphosis, GG<5.

            Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?

            As you all know that I'm no girly girl, I pay attention to the colour and material of my shoes very much like denim, felt, corduroy, suede, tweed etc etc. Yes, I pay more attention to colours and material than anything. My shoe collection has more colours than my wabrobe.

            How do you care for your shoes?

            I just place them on my open shoe rack at the corner of the house.

            What are the must have (for you) this season?

            Colours and loud logos. Let everyone knows what you are wearing! How about that Chanel Scholl?? I know I am probably crazy but I do think having a pair of Steve Madden Iglous Boots in pink is cool, not in Singapore though.



            For a start, I'm buying lotsa Coach shoes off ebay. Dimples should know that

              Absolutely! I love red, pink, white and mixture of yellow and turquoise. Black is a must have too.

              How do you care for your shoes?
              I store them in shoe bags neatly in boxes inside my shoe cabinet. Wash them occasionally too.

              Birkenstocks denim, more havianas, ribbon heels, more gola hi cut, adidas maryjanes, arnold palmer maryjane, Dr Scholl's sandals in rainbow colors and pumps. I love them !!!!!

                    I used to have a pair that's very similar to this. Not boots though. Wore it in my dorm during the cold winter months.

                      I love all kinds of shoes! Particularly CAMPER SHOES!!!!!!! I like the twins range, and their lovely mary janes. Who else loves? I heard in spain there's a factory outlet, colleague of mine has 3 camper shoes, each 80SGD each! I'm into interesting twists on designs, retropop, good materials. I also llike a little bit of ethnic finishes, so I sometimes get shoes from x:odus.

                      Are you adventurous with colors or is your collection predominantly single tone?
                      I don't like overdose of colours but i love tasteful colour combis, olive green, turqoises, chocolate browns, reds and orange touches! (not all at once!)

                      How do you care for your shoes?
                      Very badly. Shoe cabinet, some collect dust. I need to start caring for them better starting today.

                      What are the must have (for you) this season?
                      Adidas maryjanes, some cute pumps from trendy zone, camper twins and mary janes

                          Think you may need to check this out IRL. The pic on the Adidas Japan website seems to be gone.

                          Price : $99. I got mine at Adidas Suntec City outlet. I saw these at S+K outlet in Wisma too.

                              You bought this, Rac? I like this pair a lot more than the other one. Must show us one of the days.
