I figured it was time to update my collection photo. I sort of accidentally became a Vivienne Westwood shoe collector. I’d pick up pairs here and there that I like for the unique design, color, fit, season, etc. and before you know it I’ve got 34 pairs and counting.
As far as comfort goes, my top favorites would be the Gold Label Mary Janes (Thanks for the recommendation Pearl!), the Gold Label McCambridge Gillie, and Accessories Pirate Boots (the soles have a bit more support than the gold label boots), and oddly enough the Anglomania x Melissa Wedge Sandals. I rotate the most between the shearling pirate boots and the toe mary janes. I love my Gold Label pirate boots, but I find that for extended wear they need a bit of help in the comfort department by adding extra cushy insoles and topy rubber soles.
The shoes which I would recommend staying away from because they are a comfort disaster, would most likely be the Temptation Pumps, Lady Dragons, and Skyscraper series. I can’t wear those shoes past my bedroom to get to the front door much less wear them in public. I keep them as visual pieces in my collection mostly, lol. The roman boots and the ankle strap pumps are close to intolerable, and they are very much date shoes where the only walking you have to do is from your car to your table and back. Of course, everybody’s feet are different, I just have incredibly high arches, so any shoes with no arch support makes me cranky.
In regards to design, my favorites are the loudest. The Red Squiggle Pirate Boots, McCambridge Gillies, Gold Wing Sandals, Bondage Boots, and Ballerina Rocking Horse Shoes.
If you have any specific questions about these shoes, feel free to leave a comment.
