The Five Day Shoe Challenge-as selected by our readers-cast a vote for what shoes we have to wear!

Okay, so my mom and I did a ‘three day’ shoe challenge in which we selected two pairs of shoes for each other. We had to wear these shoes for three days-it forced us to wear shoes that were not getting the ammount of wears they deserve.


The challenge proved to be a great success and we both ended up coming up with some great ways to wear the ‘challenge’ shoes. When it was finished, we decided to do it again-only this time, we don’t get to choose the shoes-if you’re reading this, you should help us choose!


Here are my shoes-



and here are my mom’s shoes-



and here are some more detailed pictures-



1. A pair of rafia Alaia platforms-stripper chic!
2. A pair of Chloe shoe boots
3. A pair of yellow patent Dries van Noten sneaker wedges



4. A pair of baby pink patent Givenchy’s
5. Blue Comme des Garcons sandals with a painted wooden heel and sole
6. Taupe patent studded Alaia gladiator sandals


and now, mom’s shoes



1. Red YSL Tribute heels 
2. Leopard ponyhair Prada mary-janes
3. Candy stripe Prada platforms


4. Studded Burberry platforms
5. Navy patent Lanvin platforms
6. Canvas and leather shoe booties by Bruno Frisoni


Okay-now it’s up to you guys to vote on the shoes we have to wear-two pairs over the course of five days! If you want to vote, reply in a comment choosing one pair for me and one pair for my mom. Leave the number of the shoe of your choice (example, for Jane: #4, for Judy: #2) We will choose the first and second place shoes, respectfully.


I will post the results on Thursday-this challenge will be particularly difficult because we are going to a shoe consolidation sale on Wednesday-what if we find a fabulous pair that we are dying to wear? Oh well-I guess that’s what makes it a challenge!


Comment now and leave your vote-thanks for reading as always! :)
Now I have a cooking class to attend-till next time!
Jane

  11. Stephanie says:

    Jane: #3 (because I want these), #4 (because they are unusual/kind of phallic looking and I’m interested in how you will wear them)
    Judy: #1 (because I want these), #4 (because I want these!)
    I hope your shoe closets are insured!

  12. Mavenda says:

    Jane: 2
    Judy: 4
    (My choices are somewhat selfish — I have both of those pairs of shoes and would love to see how you two would style them!)

  13. ProfMonnitoff says:

    those burberry shoes (the whole collection actually) are one of the few examples i can recall of studs done well. i’ve always wanted to see them on actual people.

  46. Jamie says:

    Mostly because I would kill for both of them, and yet I have no idea how I would wear them, so I’m really excited to see what you guys do.
    Also, I’ve been a reader here for about a month, and this is my first time commenting. I love the blog!

    I’ve seen those Burberry shoes that your mom has before, probably just in an ad or something…but I recognized them and remember adoring them! Hope they win a spot, I would love to see what she’d do with them.

    The most comfortable shoe to me is just a plain old flip flop, however that doesnt work well in all weather. I also love the tennis shoe. High heels are great for looks, but not so great for comforts.
