Black Shoes

I'm really bad at looking after my shoes. They normally have to take regular trips to the cobblers for much needed tlc, I think I must stomp around a lot! My solution to this as you can see is to buy many pairs of (vaguely!) sensible black shoes and wear a different pair every day of the week. 
 
I own very few pairs of shoes that aren't black in fact! My only other tip for shoe care is to buy shoes with wooden or plastic heels, not the leather/fabric covered ones as they tend to look grubby and all rucked up really quickly.
 
What are your tips for keeping your shoes looking nice? Do you buy sensible shoes or crazy ones?!
 
ps I'm thinking of adding these to my collection, what do you think?

Those shoes are cool - sensible for work too!

I'm not very good at sensible shoes. I thought I was like you and always bought black shoes but turns out most of mine aren't actually black!!

Love the GIF - I need to try that! :)

What an awesome GIF! I try to wear a different pair of shoes every day and match them to the weather so they don't get too messed up. Those Dune shoes are very 'you' :)

Yes add those to the collection, very nice. Love your gif I've been trying to make one for ages but never works. I'll try that site out. I own mostly brown/tan shoes, this has inspired me to maybe show my shoe collection off... oh i have so many pairs that are very similar to each other. Loved this fun little post! x

I usually wear confortable and good leather shoes...my mam always has told me how important is to take care of your feet....

and I am thinking to because a cobbler because IT IS SO EXPENSIVE!!!! in lisbon the street floor is made with cobblestones then is usually you to break your heels....:S

I am so rubbish at looking after my shoes, and never get around to going to the cobblers. Argh.

Hello darling!

So, all of your shoes are adorable. I am broke so don't spend much money on shoes...however, Erika and I both have this same pair of shoes that we wear ALL the time and we love them but sadly they're getting worn out so we're trying to wear a different pair and those on special occasions. :)

And yes, those shoes are adorable! A steal definitely if you really want them.

XOXO-

Mmmm, shoes. Black shoes are such classics. I like to buy as many black shoes as possible.

I have quite a few pairs of black shoes, especially black mary janes (such a sucker for those), but am trying to branch out to get other colours...I find although black is safe, sometimes i'ts just a bit boring.
Although saying that, it's a great collection of shoes!

I buy black and brown sensible shoes and wear them to death, then also crazier floral/stripy/bright yellow shoes and never end up wearing them at all. Part of the problem is that I have funny shaped feet so lots of shoes hurt.

I am rubbish at looking after my shoes, they get thrown in a cupboard or a big shoe hamper!
