A Single Pair of Shoes

If you could only have one pair of shoes, what color should they be? Whatever color your hair is. Of course, I don't want to become some sort of shoe nazi. The principle I'm suggesting is balance. Simply put, your hair is always part of your ensemble, the very top part. Your shoes can repeat the color, like bookends, without necessarily becoming part of what's in between.

Perhaps that is why the shoe industry has stated as a code, that Black or Brown should be a shoe staple in the wardrobe...most people's hair either falls into one of those 2 categories at one time or another, unless you are a red hed or a blond and then you still have shades of brown in it. In the Spring there is always the debate about white or bone... Which one would you choose if you had Black hair?

Very sharp observation. I agree.

White or bone? As a rule, white doesn't look good ... really ever. An old trick I learned as a pageant participant (a chapter in my life I would like to forget), is to match shoe color to pantihose (read leg color). This works, but length balancing is slightly altered.

Another option: metallic.
