Emily Matthews, a senior from Greenwich, Connecticut has an amazing collection of shoes that we are incredibly envious of. I got the chance to talk to her about her shoe obsession!
How many pairs of shoes do you have?
I think I have over 25 pairs of shoes… plus all of my mom’s that I like to steal when I go home. Shout out to my mom for passing on her shoe addiction to me.
What’s your favorite type of shoe?
It definitely depends on the vibe and my mood. While I love how my over the knee boots make me feel like Ariana Grande, I would have to say heels given the fact that I am 5 feet tall! A good pair of 5+ inch heels makes me feel all the more confident and beautiful in whatever outfit I’m wearing. It also makes it easier to talk to people of normal heights…
What’s your favorite pair you own?
I think my favorite pair would have to be my Aquazzura black pumps with the pearl and gold detailing. I love how classic and chic they are, yet also make a subtle statement. I get countless compliments every time I wear them.
What’s the most classic pair you own?
The most classic pair I own is probably my YSL black slingback pumps. They are perfect to subtly dress up a formal or informal outfit.
What pair do you wear the most?
I think I wear my black Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots with the wedge the most – In the winter time at least. I feel like they dress up any outfit but not too much. Also, again, Ariana Grande vibes.
What’s your favorite brand for shoes?
I love Aquazzura! All of their platform pumps are amazing and so surprisingly comfortable. The founder actually sought out to make them comfortable when he created the brand.
