Julie Says: I heart my Rainbow flip flops so hard, it’s probably illegal in some states.
Even though they’re not much to look at, they make me feel fabulous. They’re comfortable, put enough distance between my toes and the grimy streets of New York, and are totally reliable. I can walk for miles in them without blisters or aching toes. I look forward to the point in the summer, normally about three weeks in, that I get Rainbow tan lines on my feet. And I even wear them in the winter. Whenever I walk into my place, I kick off my boots and slip into my Rainbows as soon as I can. My Rainbows are the best and the most “me” pair of shoes that I own.
Melanie Says: My favorite shoes? Plain old black-and-white saddle oxfords.
I’ve never had to wear them for school uniforms or anything (although I know some girls do) but I’ve loved wearing them for years. They’re a little quirky and out of place, so they get noticed, but they’re also super comfy and go with almost anything. I think what I love most about them, though is that I can really do anything in them—oh, you need me to run to catch that ice cream truck? Done. You need me to climb four flights of stairs to the party? Done. No teeter-tottering required!
Jessica Says: I am obsessed with my black wedge boots from Aldo, and if I could, I would wear them every day.
I’m only 5’0, so I love wearing heels that make me feel like I’m towering over my fellow short friends. These are super comfy – seriously! – and they go with basically everything. They’re really cute, and I like to think they add a little bit of an edge to whatever I’m wearing. Actually, I’m pretty much obsessed with any kind of wedge heel. They’re a thousand times more comfortable than any other heel and usually have a higher platform. And believe me, I can use all the height I can get.
Emerald Says: I love my purple Doc Martens!
I got them as a Christmas gift from my dad—the only way I could ever afford them. They’re comfy and basically made to last a lifetime, most of all I love how they look. I always had an edgier style since I was in Junior High, you know leather bracelets, band T-shirts, and Converse shoes (I was that girl). When I got to college I didn’t want to lose that, but I did want to look a bit more mature (are Doc Martens mature? IDK). They’re a bit more stylish and I wear them all the time with everything, dresses, jeans, shorts, leggings—perfect for adding an edgy twistto any outfit!
