Enclopedia of Women's Shoes

La Clé Privée tweeted out this Encyclopedia of Women’s Shoes that defines the various styles of shoes. It’s funny how some brand names (ie Crocs, Uggs, etc) become iconic names of shoes. I guess it’s kind of like calling Puffs tissues “Kleenex”.

  1. Huh. Yeah, I’m with you about the “jellies”, I would definitely have called them flats. Who knew there were so many different categories of shoe types? There area lot of these that I’ve seen stores but had no idea what to call them.

  2. If you’re one of those who say they love boots but don’t own them because they live in warm climates, please look for another excuse. You can still get smart ankle boots that are not fur-lined and will work just fine even when it’s hot. Of course when it gets cold, you can get some delicious suede thigh-high boots.
