Growing up, I always had one pair of shoes until I wore them to the ground. This was all well and good until I started paying attention to style and realized that no matter how nice my outfit was, if the shoes weren't something other than my beat up Puma's with a bright yellowed sole, the whole ensemble was ruined. That's when it started.
In the following years I would admire my older sister (11 year age difference) and her consistent high heeled French shoe purchases, as well as my basketball fanatic older brother (5 year age difference) who introduced me to the Nike Air Jordan 11 "Bred." I followed my affection for shoes with schooling at FIDM (LA) and LCF (London), and personal explorations and curiosities. I have been a part of the footwear community ever since then and can't get enough.
I live, eat, and breath shoes daily. ShoeQUEENDOM.com is where I document it all.
I believe that heels can be comfortable, sexy, and on trend all while being affordable. Like me, many girls are not able to afford the high-end designer shoes. The good news is there are so many great brands out there that are producing really innovative and top quality products at fair price points and I'm that girl who loves to discover them. With sneakers, I love being able to take such a male aspect and turning it into a feminine look. Plus, having the mobility of confidently running around without the fear of twisting your ankle is something every woman can agree they desire.
Heels and sneakers are on such opposite ends that the bridge between the two really excite me!
