Basic Black

Chloe, Birkenstock

Just a few years ago, I could count on one hand the number of pairs of black shoes I owned (my Rockstud phase took over my wardrobe…). Now I have plenty of basic black shoes that I live in. Actually, I own, wear, and love every pair pictured above.

Ancient Greek slide, Paloma Barceló wedge, Chloé pump, Aquazzura pump, Birkenstock Gizeh, Chloé flat & here.

  • A fabulous collection of shoes for every occasion here! Chloe just keeps getting better, as does Birkenstock. My all-time favorite black pump is a Bottega Veneta from the early 80’s–black suede ankle bootie with a sweet medium heel height, and very thinnest leather laces with ‘tassels’ on them! The linine is a gold foil of some sort. Unfortunately, my feet have ‘changed’ over the years (i.e., grown!), and the shoes kill me now . . . but I always save prize shoes, to admire and for the memories. Nothing beats a chic black pump!

  • I love this post! Great shoes for every occasion. I have purchased them all over time thanks to your previous recommendations. As you mentioned I did not own many pairs of black shoes and now wear them all often.
    I must admit my favorite are the Aquazzura pump – so stylish!!
    Thanks Preston!
