I'm a Minimalist—These Are All the Simple Shoe Styles I Own

When it comes to finding practical basics, we're good at stockpiling the perfect white tees or jeans. However, when it comes to shoes, we could use a little more work. How tempting is it to spend money on a pair of zebra-print Manolo Blahniks rather than a pair of smart loafers? Living in London (where your feet take a battering from all the walking) and being a minimalist, I've come to appreciate the pairs I can rely on. I love shoes that go with just about anything. They don't need to be flashy; they just have to work. I'm talking about the kinds that make up the bones of your footwear wardrobe.
