So today I decided to show you my New Rock shoes :)
I'm not really a 'shoe collector' girl, I don't have dozens of different pairs. I find lots of shoes really pretty, but never buy them because I know that I'll never wear them. For me shoes have to be comfortable and practical. At home I'm always wearings sneakers, but when I go out I prefer to wear something a bit more stylish. And by more stylish I mean whose with heels.
Not only do I find that high heels add a very feminine touch to an outfit and make your legs look longer and slimmer, they also give me a bit of extra hight (yep I'm a shorty!)
Only problem is, as I don't wear heels every day I'm not very good at walking with them. Walking with stilettos is impossible in my case! I'd break my ankle! Plus I'm always jumping or running around, and often trip over my own feet.
So I tend to go for safe sturdy shoes. And that is why I love New Rock shoes.
I must say that they are indeed not very feminine and graceful. More of a punk - rock style, but that's what I like. The heels are enormous, but these shoes are just so comfortable! I can even run with them!
Here are the 5 pairs that I wear the most. I have a couple more back in France.
So how did my New Rock addiction start...
With the film Fast and Furious! I was 16 at the time and loved cars, so of course I loved the film. At one point Michelle Rodriguez gets out of her car and there is a zoom of her shoes. I loved them and really wanted the same ones! But I had no idea what brand they were...That summer I went back to the UK to get a summer job. I was wandering around town when I walked past a sort of 'punk' shop. And what was sitting on display in the window? The exact same shoes!! What a coincidence!! I was also lucky that they had my small shoe size :) As you probably guessed, I brought the pair.
I had my first pair of New Rock's and wore them all the time (and still have them today, but I don't wear them much anymore, too 'punk').
They are really big and chunky, and heavy!!! In the film you see Michelle driving with them. Well, I had just started driving and decided that I would wear mine too! Not a good idea! I was not used to these heavy shoes, and backed my mum's car into the back of my Dad's! Forbidden to drive my Mum's car with heels after that!
The New Rock's I've brought since are more 'girlish'. Still chunky, but more girlish :) Of course they're not everyones idea of style, but they sure are mine!
These have to be my fave pair. They are so comfortable! Plus they look good with nearly any outfit!
These pink ones are the 'cutest'. I love wearing them with short light flowery pink skirts.
The heels on these ones are enormous! I love the height they give me! Like I said above, I'm a disaster when I walk with really high heels, but not with these ones. As they are rather chunky they are really sturdy. I can actually run up and down stairs with them!
One of my first pairs. I just love the color and the fact the the laces have been replaced by chains!
And here's the last pair. More outrageous and Lady Gaga like.
Well, there you go! Those are my fave shoes!
Did you know that (in the business world) the first thing people look at are your shoes and watch?! Well my shoes and my watch are big and chunky! Wonder what they think of me?
What kind of shoes do you like wearing best? I'd love to know!
Just to finish, here's a quick video of my puppy Hermès. Well, he's not really a puppy anymore, he's getting rather big! But he's such a whinger! He just moans all the time! So funny!
Oh, and if you watch the video and wonder why on earth do I have tires in my living room, it's normal. I don't have a garage so I have my Jeep's road tires, back seats and front axle in my small house. Make's everybody laugh, I just say it's a new interior design concept ;)
