'Every Shoe Tells a Story'

I am posting alongside the 'Clarks:Every Shoe tells a story' Campaign.You can add your very own story the their facebook page with the chance to win a prize each day. The overall winner will recieve 3,000 pounds worth of Trailfinders vouchers!! Being a bit of a shoe addict I have many pairs. But a girl always has her very faves... Be it heels or flats, stilettos or wedges, there is the right pair for each specific occasion. I think as a girl Clarks were definitely my favourite shoes,I loved being taken to get some navy blue mary-janes. I think desert boots are a classic and therefore timeless.I recently bought these turquoise platform sandals from Office, and I'm really loving them at the moment.
Although I'm a westwood pirate-boot girl, and love my converse when i'm feeling lazy, I think my all-time favourites are my Dr.Martens. I started off with a pair of black leather boots when i was about 16, i asked my mum to take me to the shop in Covent Garden, that's when I got hooked!But now, i'm in love with the low-top shoes. The story of these shoes are..I went to the factory shop in Northampton, and liked the fact that they were made in England, instead of production being taken to eastern Europe or further. The thing with these shoes is they will last my life-time, if not my childrens. I can wear them with everything, they are a classic.When the craze for Dr.Martens came back recently people were buying them from vintage shops, second-hand. So god only knows what stories they entail!The best thing is they get better with age too, and become molded to the shape of your feet.I'm sure they will hold a lot of memories for me when I reminisce about them in years to come!
