It’s never an easy decision to choose which shoes to bring with you when you are on a trip. It’s almost like choosing which child of yours to abandon. /melodrama

I think it is especially hard when you are leaving home for a long period of time – you’ve got to consider footwear for every occasion, as well as take the weather into account. I wish shoes weren’t so heavy so I could bring every pair with me.

Here are the “finalists”: shoes which I think are both comfortable and functional, and most importantly, shoes I will wear often. Nothing worse than wasting luggage space on a pair of shoes you may only wear once.

The boots.

Clockwise from top: H&M Engineer booties. Exceeding comfortable and practical. Doc Marts lookalikes from Bugis Street. They don’t look like much, but they are a godsent when there is lots of snow around. Ann Demeuleemester wedge boots. One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, and I can wear them for slightly dressier occasions.ย  Dolce & Gabbana lace up boots (loot from the Club 21 accessory sale!). They seem awesome for cooler weather, and I can wear them when I don’t want to appear too sloppy.

The shoes

L-R: Yves Saint Laurent trooper pumps. Because it’s absolutely necessary for you to pack at least one pair of shoes for formal occasions. And who knows when you might need it for themed parties? Aldo pumps: I am still waffling about bringing this pair. I might swap it for more “everyday” shoes instead. Vvestiges balenciaga inspired wedges. Purchased from the lovely Venetia! Part of me rather doubt the practicality of open toed sandals in where I’ll be heading, but they look too good worn to be passed up. My toes will just have to be wet and freeze. Aldo wedges. I am unsure about this because they are open-toed as well, but at least I can wear these with socks!

  3. Shoes are the hardest!! At least clothes you can cram in, and bring lots for layering and changing. I almost need a whole suitcase just for shoes XD Where abouts are you traveling now?

    Also, LOVE those D&G boots!!

    you should definitely ship some stuff… I had to pack for 9+ months when I moved in New York. So difficult especially with suitcase limits.

    Those d&g boots are awesome! I like lace up boots too, but I don’t like the combat-boot style that makes your feet look kinda fat so it’s hard to find a cheap pair. Ahh the sad life of a person with a high school student budget :( haha

    Dawn replied on

    Hey Kerry, I totally get what you mean. ): And almost all of them end on an awkward length (at the largest portion of your calves) and make your legs look so thick!

    Good luck looking for THE pair of boots, I am sure one exists out there with a reasonable price tag ๐Ÿ˜€
