Minimalist Shoes

This page is all about my personal shoe collection over the years. I went from keeping all my shoes from the 4th grade to only keeping what I use.

This page will keep getting updated.

I went from 4 shoes to a million.

Well, it seems like a million, lol.

Here’s the updated list:

  • 2 cork clogs
  • 3 sneakers
  • 1 hiking boots
  • 1 winter boots
  • 1 heels
  • 1 flip-flops

Why 3 pair of sneakers? Well, my mom bought me a pair and gave me a pair. And although I don’t use all 3 regularly, over time I’ll have backups when things get worn down.

So, eventually, this list will get smaller or larger if there’s a good deal on cork clogs.

I’ve been thinking about all the topics that I want to write about, and I decided to start from my roots. In the very beginnings of this blog, I did a post on my shoes. I had 13 pairs of shoes. I was saying that I would soon pare them down — which I did — but I also made some excuses for a few of them. One example were my Ravens slippers. I said that these slippers didn’t count because I wanted everything that supported my favorite football team.

But, they do count. And, I no longer have them. In fact, I no longer have any of those 13 pairs of shoes.

At this current moment, I have exactly 4 pairs of shoes. This is a big improvement on the 13, and even though I could get rid of another pair, I am happy with where I am.

So, my shoes consist of my everyday slip-ons, my sneakers, my winter boots and a pair of heels. I could get rid of the heels, but they make me super happy!

I am also thinking about getting two more in the future. When summer comes, I may want a pair of flip-flops and since I live on a farm now, I really want some hiking boots.

But, for now, 4 pairs of shoes is all I need. I’m keeping this post short in honor of my short and sweet first post on my shoes.

These are the shoes left in my collection after going through them yesterday.

-Pink sneakers
-Blue sneakers
-Professional black pumps
-Professional brown flats
-Clogs (not the ugly plastic ones. The cork kind)
-Black and white graduation heels
-Brown flats
-Tan sandals with a flower
-Cowgirl heel/boots
-Pink booty slippers
-Ravens slippers

I know 13 pairs of shoes does not seem very minimal, but I will be paring them down again in some time, and the Ravens slippers do not count because I like having articles that support my team.

After awhile, I plan on having this collection to be down to 10. Blue sneakers are a back up for when pink sneakers gets worn out.

I’m going to wear my graduation heels one last time on July 1st when I graduate college (I thought it would be nice to graduate in the same pair of heels that I graduated elementary school in).

Brown flats’s life is coming to an end and if I don’t wear the cowboy boots in a year, then I’m giving them away.
