There are some fabulous quotes about footwear for shoe lovers everywhere, that I would like to share. Being something of a shoe and boot enthusiast, like a lot of ladies, I think shoes are so important. I'm no Imelda Marcos, mainly because I don't have the wardrobe space, but I have my fair share of fabulous footwear. Most of us have heard of the sayings, such as putting yourself in someone's shoes to really know what they're going through or walking a mile in a person's shoes. Elvis Presley sang about his Blue Suede Shoes, Paul Simon sang about Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes, David Bowie instructed us to put on our red shoes and dance the blues and Nancy Sinatra reminded us that These Boots Are Made for Walking, showing that often shoes are used as a metaphor and help us to look at life in a particular way. So here are some of my favorite quotes about footwear that are actually about life.
1. Oprah Winfrey
We all know that Oprah had a difficult early life but this inspirational woman managed to rise against adversity and show that it's not where you came from, it's how you deal with the trials and tribulations of life and come out the other side that matters. She still has her feet firmly on the ground, she just wears more expensive shoes. And why not? She deserves it and has worked hard for them! This is one of my favourite quotes about footwear.
