The 5 pairs of footwear I've worn numerous occasions since January 1st


Twenty was a weird year, to say the least. There are many, many things we've done differently this year: we spend most of our time in our homes, living on Zoom calls, and using terms like "social distancing," to name a few. Another thing that we've been doing very differently over the past 12 months is the way we dressed. I don't know about you, but I've lived in the same cozy outfits because it just feels wrong to wear something different.

This is especially true for shoes (what are heels again?). I've spent essentially the same five pairs of shoes all year, completely neglecting every other pair in my closet. Not only are they comfortable, but they also go well with all of the laid-back outfits I've shot this year. From the comfy sneakers I've worn on a daily basis to my chunky boots that go with any outfit, listed below are the five versatile shoes I've lived in this year – and I probably will continue to do so in 2021.
