Do you know what your shoes say about you? In the words of Carrie Bradshaw: “Shoes are the quickest way for women to achieve instant metamorphosis,” and we have to agree. Shoes hold a special place in the hearts of women around the world and, as most fashionistas know, a fabulous shoe can make an outfit.

There are so many different types of shoes — from chic and sophisticated to casual and comfy — and your shoe choices say a lot about you. In order to help you put your best foot forward (get it?!), we’re giving you the Zodiac of Shoes so you can understand the message you’re choice of footwear is sending. Notice there’s very little that is bad on this list — just different. Don’t worry if you’re favorite shoe is a sensible sandal, once you know what your shoes say about you, you can decide for yourself if that’s the message you want to send.

  • Flip-Flops

    I am ready to go to the beach, like, now! or I’d rather not be indoors so get me out of here ASAP. Obviously not a good choice for making a good impression at work or on a date…unless it’s on the beach, of course.

  • Wedges

    I am stylish but like my comfort. No shame in that! And wedges do come in lots of lovely styles. And as far as a high heel go, they are comfortable.

  • Lucite Platforms

    Nosebleeds do not affect me. Okay not really, but wearing sky-high platforms does make observers wonder if you’re compensating for something or getting ready for work at a less-than-classy joint. It’s definitely worth taking a moment to consider what your shoes say about you.

  • Lace up Sandals

    Being sexy comes naturally to me. Because these sandals are usually flat, they exude an air of being carefree and confident while the laces up the lower leg add some sex appeal.

  • Ballet Flats

    I’m fashionably cute and functional. Yup!

  • Booties

    I’m chill, I’m cool, I’m chic! Booties have been really popular for the last couple of years so you look current, modern and just a bit edgy. And if you’re a teen, a wannabe teen or the mother of a teen they’re a staple for the music festival circuit.

  • Louboutins

    I am beyond FA-BU-LOUS. And wealthy.

  • TOMS

    I care about the environment and people, but I’m also super hip. TOMS is known for its One for One business model, so when you wear them, you’re not only looking good, but also doing good. We like these types of shoes!

  • Air Force 1

    I kick it old school.

  • Jellies

    I’m nostalgic and don’t care who knows it. Jellies are making a comeback so we’re seeing them in stores for the first time in decades. If you’re hanging out with your kids and their friends, these types of shoes sends the ‘hip mom’ message.

  • Wedge Sneakers

    Function and Fashion is EVERYTHING! I’m Sassy! You’ll like what your shoes say about you in these. It takes a brave woman to pull these off and we will bow down at your trendy feet if we catch you rockin’ these.

  • Chuck Taylor’s

    I appreciate a true classic! These are great for moms-on-the-go with young kids and they’re awesome for lifting heavy weights at the gym too.

  • Doc Martin’s

    Don’t mess with me, I’m a bad ass—never mind my floral dress. We see you combining your masculine Doc’s with your sweet, flowy dress and we have to agree, you’re edgy, sexy, strong and feminine all in one. And you definitely love Pearl Jam.

  • Birkenstocks

    I was a hippie in my past life. or I’m a hippie now. or Hippies know comfort. Whatever message you want to send, just keep your Birks clean and buy new ones every once in a while. Those can get super stinky really fast!
