Sole Venture Shoe love since '91.


My love affair with shoes started at the ripe age of two. My mother was pregnant with my baby sister and to prevent any kind of rivalry, she purchased my favourite, red shoes (I was obsessed with red shoes at the time) and put them in the hospital cot with my newly born sister.

Needless to say, it was love at first sight – with both my new red shoes and my baby sis.

That’s as far back as I can trace my shoe love. Nearly twenty three years later and my closet comprises of 70% shoes and 30% clothing (this is true a true story).

The newest addition to my shoe closet? These tan lace up block heels that are flattering as they are versatile!


I’m wearing:

Top worn backwards – Zara

Jeans – H&M

New Shoe Smell


Who doesn’t love that smell of a pair of brand new shoes? Every fellow shoe-obsessed will know exactly what I’m talking about.

I’m loving the shoes on Superbalist at the moment, they have some amazing winter buys!

Here’s My Pick of My Five Favourites:

-Chunky Heels Boots:

Recently, I love a slight pointed shape when it comes to ankle boots. This chic black pair of leather boots are versatile and will look great with pretty much any outfit.

-Metallic Sneakers:

I love these classic Superga sneakers in this modern metallic shade. Metallic sneakers can act as a neutral which means they can be paired with just about any look.

-Thigh High Boots:

How gorge are these black mock suede thigh high boots? I would wear them with skinny jeans and a chunky knit.Boots

Not only are lace ups super on point but these block heeled babies add extra comfort so you won’t be dying a slow death in your heels! Perfect for work and play.

These heels are everything. And can you believe they’re R349? I love their babydoll feel with the peep toe and chunky heel.
