How To: Build Your Shoe Wardrobe

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Step into the DNA closet for a moment and let’s discuss your shoe wardrobe. Today, we will act as your shoe therapist, providing you with the necessary tools to flourish as a shoe connoisseur.

Over the years, you have collected shoes here in there from different seasons, styles, and trends, but have you ever asked yourself why you have the shoes you do and how you could spend your shoe budget more wisely? The first step in shoe therapy is admitting you have a problem, a problem that can easily be solved by DNA Footwear.

{1} Line up your shoes by style and color, giving you a full view of your already overindulgent collection.

{2} Narrow down — If you have more than three of the same color in one style, nix the least worn. Be realistic — Nobody needs more than three neon yellow loafers.

{3} Dispose or donate never worn or damaged shoes.

{4} Time to rebuild with shoe basics — If you don’t already have them, you will need at least one pair of:

Flats: Ballet Flat, Clog, Loafer, Oxford, Mary-Jane, Moccasin, Dockside, Mule, Espadrille, Slipper, Flatform

Sandals: Flip Flop, Gladiator, Dressy, High Heel

Heels: Pump (open & close toe), Platform, Wedge, Slingback

Sneakers: Running, Hiking, Every Day

Boots: Bootie, Heeled, Mid-calf, Knee-high, Thigh-high, Cowboy, Rain Boot, Snow Boot

This may seem like a daunting task not only to organize your shoe closet but also to rebuild your footwear wardrobe with the basics. This is not an overnight process and instead takes time and money to complete. God forbid you don’t have the appropriate shoe for every occasion! That’s why here at DNA we have your best interest and footwear needs in mind.

Today’s shoe therapy session is over. Please pay our secretary on the way out — we take all major credit cards, checks, and of course cash. See you again next week!
