This week?  5F Shoes.

In the spirit of Denim Week, why not share what I think the best three shoes are to wear to with jeans. There are so many great options to choose from, it was quite a challenge to pin-point just three. My favorites? The flat, the wedge, and the heel.

The Flat

Flats are the perfect every day shoe when it comes to commuting, working in a fast paced environment, or lounging around on the weekend; this is my go-to style. Whether it’s a ballerina, a flat sandal or a chic lace up, flats go great with jeans. I absolutely love these oh-so-fun Elizabeth and James flats. They’re feminine and just compact enough to slip into my bag if I ever need a quick change into heels – plus the almost-pointed toe elongates your leg. What style denim would I pair them with? A cropped or skinny jean like J Brand’s Maria.

 The Wedge

The espadrille wedge is a spring/summer no-brainer, and Paloma Barcelo’s Formentera is super fun. Utilizing mixed materials and multiple colors, these are super light-weight and easy to walk in. The platform helps lower the pitch of your foot so it’s almost as comfortable as a flat but gives you that height you need to elongate the leg. Pair these with a skinny jean or my personal favorite, a wide-leg flare (Mother Denim has great wide-leg flares!).

The Heel

 

Isabel Marant, 212 872 8941

Last but certainly not least, the heel. No matter what the occasion may be, a heel always does the trick. Lady-like yet sexy this Isabel Marant style known as ‘Rea’ is straight off the runway. I adore this in the natural nude/tan color that blends right in with your skin-tone. You can wear this single sole strappy sandal with almost anything to effortlessly go from day to night. Style this just like the runway with a cropped skinny jean or a rolled up boot cut style.

Rachel is an assistant buyer for our Second Floor Shoe Salon. First joining us as an intern, this Mid-West girl discovered her shoe obsessions as a wee one admiring a pair of Victorian booties that inevitably inspired massive pangs of envy.  From then on, she was hooked — from spinning about as a child in crystal-flecked Converse to discovering Fashion City’s sample sales just after college. In fact, Rachel has been known to spend her entire Saturday in our Shoe Salon, searching for her next pair.  You can follow more of Rachel’s shoe adventures on Instagram.
