The Red Shoes
It’s been a long time since I’ve had red shoes but when I saw this pair of red patent penny loafers on a stacked heel by Tahari at DSW last week, I fell instantly in love. It didn’t hurt that they were on clearance. I know red is not the most practical color for shoes but I wear so much black, gray and navy in the fall and winter that I find myself instinctively drawn to deep intense colors in accessories and footwear. These looked fantastic with what I happened to have on in the store—dark denim, long-sleeved navy T-shirt, gray scarf, black peacoat—so I went for it. And then I bought a second pair in black patent.
But the red really stole my heart.
A true penny loafer.
What about you? Do you own a pair of red shoes?
