Monsoon must haves – Footwear

The rains have arrived and that can only mean one thing. It’s time to pack away your leather and canvas shoes and get ready for the monsoons. But there’s no need to dread ruining your look with ugly monsoon shoes because we have some funky choices just for you.

Kitschy Flip-Flops

Who says flip-flops are just meant for running errands? We say, if you wish to give yourself a peppy look, opt for the tip-tap-toe flip-pies. From candy colors to crazy designs, flip-flops these days lend you a cool, carefree look for the chic and cutesy appeal. Remember to wear them with funky outfits and offbeat accessories.

Rubber or plastic shoes/ballerinas

During this weather, it is always highly recommendable to purchase footwear procured using rubber or plastics in the upper or outsole. Rubber outsoles are anti slippery and would prevent the feet from slipping and adventitious injuries. The synthetic uppers resemble leather but this synthetic material can be cleaned using a damp cloth which prevents the footwear from deterioration. These would be highly durable and flexible providing anti slippage properties.

Crocs

Crocs are a better option for the rains. They are essentially rubber, and their grip is also better, so they won’t slip from your foot when both are wet with rain water. Colourful options with holes on top make them a style statement for monsoon.

With a formal outfit, you can wear sandals with straps as they would be firm on your feet. Go for slip-resistant sandals and check that your wet feet don’t slip even inside the footwear.

Avoid

  • Avoid wearing heels in rainy season. But, if you just cannot resist wearing heels then go for slip-resistant sandals of heels not over 2 inches.
  • Avoid wearing leather footwear as much as possible since the material gets easily infected with fungus and bacteria. They have a tendency to support bacteria because of the moisture.Still have passion for leather footwear, look out for Waterproof shoes. The waterproof range of well-known brands is quite stylish and perfect for a rainy day.
  • Formal shoes made of waterproof leather and shoes with foam base that are odor-resistant are a huge hit with office-goers.

In this cynical world full of collisions of emotions I reside in my own little world full of dreams that lay fathoms above & a hope in the deepest corner of my heart to achieve them. A little skeptic yet like water..ever flowing and settling with all the seasons alike. A little sugar, a lot of spice & everything nice. I strongly believe that a little effort to dress up & make a difference in our own life is worth the shot! Because your clothes speak louder than you do. Being in style doesn’t mean spending a bomb on clothing and Fashion but it’s more of being comfortable with who you are. Fashion fades with time but style always remains eternal. Spending money is A-Ok with me but I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet. We all need to slap on some armour to deal with our boring mundane life. An armour called Fashion. Follow me and be your best for we live only once. Live. Love. Hail Fashion. ❤
