For some crazy people in this world, their shoes aren't an integral part of their ensemble….this I will never understand, but that is a topic for another blog. All they are looking for is comfort, so they usually opt for shoes based on what fits their lifestyle. But for luxury shoe connoisseurs like myself, your shoes are a reflection of who you are on the inside And this is the exact reason the luxury shoe market is so vast. It can be really difficult to pick the perfect heels to invest your money in when there are so many high-end brands, styles and colors available. However, I subscribe to wardrobe stylist and fashion expert Risa Kostis’ philosophy of investing in high-end shoes is worth the price tag as it can offer excellent quality.
“The famous saying ‘you get what you pay for’ can ring true when it comes to higher-end goods,”
Kostis says. “When it comes to shoes and deciding whether or not the cost is worth the commitment, I always think about ‘reasons and seasons.’” According to Kostis, investing in a designer or luxury shoes can be rewarding when you consider lifestyle, wardrobe and fashion preferences. But with so many choices, how is a girl to pick the perfect pair? And to some, this kind of purchase may seem extravagant at the moment, but trust me, it will prove to be worth the cost over time.
With an overwhelming selection of luxury shoe brands out there to choose from, it's hard to decide. To make things easier, here are some of the top picks to choose from-not listed in any particular order- that can provide a quality and luxurious, high-end shoe experience:
