As I typed out the Ruby Shoo blog last month, it really got me thinking just how much our shoes can really change our mood. Popping on those heels made me feel glamorous, kinda sexy and even a little bit more powerful!! Hey all I was doing was walking through a supermarket, and I felt gooooood!!!.

Ok, so I conquered the supermarket!
But really what does the outside world think of our shoe of choice?
According to one fashion expert Kathy Kelada Author of “Be the Shoe” and Holly wood stylist , our go to shoes say a lot more about us than you may think. Continue below for a light-hearted view on what your Ruby Shoo shoe of choice might be saying about you………
The Heel Wearer
You’re a total “girl boss” and you know it. You’re competitive, resolute, and intimidating to those who can’t keep up with your pace. “This is the most mature of all the shoes,” reveals Kelada. “It’s someone who’s caring, efficient, and powerful. They are usually in a leadership role. When everything is falling down around you, everyone will turn to the pump woman and say ‘What now?’ and then the pump will step in and kick ass and take care of business.” We all need a pump woman to ensure a job gets done properly.
The Heeled Boot Wearer
You like to take charge. In the event of a crisis, the person who loves wearing high-heeled boots will always be the one to take control of the situation. They’re quick on their feet and able to make clear, rational decisions. This woman is exceptionally self-assured, so people around her feel instantly safer in her hands. “The high-heeled boot is a take-charge kind of person,” says Kathy Kelada, author of Be the Shoe and a Hollywood-stylist turned life coach. “She loves being centre stage and is very assertive.
The Flat Wearer
Behind the scenes leader. If you’re someone who always turns to flats, we know that you work your butt off behind the scenes to ensure there’s always a perfectly finished product. And the best part is, you’re so humble that you don’t require any attention or recognition for your efforts. “The flat-wearer is focused, very modest, and generous,” says Kelada. “They’re often the women doing all the work in the world. They’re the ones behind the scenes making the engine run.”
The Wedge Wearer
Self Confident! You’re someone who always knows how to carry yourself. You’re graceful, assured, and always have a strong presence. There’s something inviting and warm about you that draws people to your company. “The wedge is wilful, has a strong sense of self, and is very outgoing,” Kelada says.
The Trainer Wearer
Are you someone who relates to people much younger than you, yet also feels comfortable conversing with someone much older? Sometimes you’re an old soul, and sometimes you’re the life of the party. For sneaker buffs, age truly is but a number, because you get along with everyone. “The sneaker is very versatile—a very open person willing to explore a lot of options and different ideas. They’re energetic and ageless; they’re really not young or old. They seem to move fluidly through age-specific groups,” according to Kelada.
The Loafer Wearer
You could be described as meticulous, perfectionistic, and steadfast. When there’s a task at hand, you make sure it’s done to the highest possible standard. Whether in relationships or at your job, you give everything your all. “The loafer is very responsible, very detail-driven, very much the person who manages all the details,” says Kelada. “They’re completely unshakable. They’re the true blue—the true friend, the true employee. With the loafer, what you see is what you get. They are on the job, whether it’s being a friend or in the workplace.”
Is it just me or could you totally find yourself in a few of those?? I know I’m not the completely unshakable Loafer wearer that’s for sure, but maybe if I try it out for a day or two, I wonder if I could convince myself? I guess, who do you want to be today? Dress for the woman you want to be, go kick some ass and put on those heels. I’m off to pop on my Suzie Trainers to be energetic and ageless, while I mingle with the oldies at Step Father’s Garden Birthday Party! Hopefully he never reads this……ssshhh!
Ok, so I just totally made up the Slipper lover, but oooh how we’ve loved our slippers (thinking emoji face)!!
