Wedge Driven: The Go To Shoe

[Post by Eena Acuña]

Scenario: Walking around the mall, you enter a shop and see something you like. While waiting for the clerk to hand you the size you requested, you check if you’ve got enough money to buy it. Check. The clerk arrives and tells you with no sympathy whatsoever: “Sorry, your size is out of stock.” All too familiar? I’ll have to admit that shoe shopping for a US Sized 9 that is me can be frustrating sometimes. Hence the saying, “If it’s available in your size, grab it.”

Which brings me to this beloved purchase. Love at first sight isn’t the proper way to describe my encounter with these shoes. It was more like “Where have you been all this time?”, like a prodigal daughter finally deciding to show up for the holiday season.

If you’re familiar with this kind of style, you would know that its more expensive counterpart has actually been available at Aldo. However, for the sake of my personal spend vs. save challenge when it comes to clothes and shoes, I decided to wait (for a miracle!).  For this answered prayer, I’d like to thank the design gods and goddesses over at Parisian that made this beauty. I am absolutely in love with its cut, versatility – and after walking around in it around Makati all day – its comfort. I now dub thee, The Go To Shoe.
