I have three pairs of shoes. That’s it. No flip flops. No high heels. No sandals. I used to have a dressy kind of sandal that sort of had a heel to it but I didn’t wear them often and found that they really weren’t comfortable. After I sprained my foot in 2014, it was hard to wear flip flops and I’ve heard they aren’t that great for your feet anyways so I got rid of mine and never bought more.
I love LOVE love the idea of minimalism or simple living or intentional living… however you want to phrase it. Getting down to three pairs of shoes feels good. It feels right. I feel empowered! My shoes are below. The ones on the left are water shoes made for going to the beach or the pool or a water park but sometimes I wear them with socks and they look like regular shoes. The middle ones are trail running/walking shoes or something like that, I use them for every day shoes and also used them for jogging quite a few times. They are kind of bulky and are getting holes in them so once they wear out completely, I’m not sure if I’ll replace them. I might just start wearing the water shoes more often and then just have two pairs of shoes. The ones on the right are my work shoes, they’re actually walking shoes but since they’re all black they can pass as work shoes. They are also what I wear when I have to dress up for something, I have black pants (no dresses or skirts) so they go with the black pants for whatever dressy occasion it is.
