5 Simple Shoes You Should Never Purge From Your Wardrobe

Asia's Tech News Daily

I've already waxed poetic about the classic clothing items you should never purge from your wardrobe (like a blazer or skinny jeans), and that story generated so many conversations that I felt it might be helpful to expand into another wardrobe staple: shoes. While shoe trends come and go, there are some styles you can let go of with little chance you'll want to wear them again (I'm looking at you, wedge sneakers), and there are other styles you're guaranteed to regret within months of tossing them.

Now I'm not talking about shoe styles that are totally thrashed. If you've worn a pair of shoes out past the point of repair, then, by all means, get rid of them. But if it's one of the styles I'm about to discuss, do yourself a favor and replace them with a new pair ASAP.

The below five styles are arguably the best shoe investments you could make because these simple, classic looks will always be on-trend and an important part of your wardrobe. From polished pumps to sleek black ankle boots, keep reading to see and shop the five shoes you should never ditch.


A good pair of sophisticated, solid-coloured pumps is the shoe equivalent of a great pair of skinny jeans. They might not be the trendiest piece in your wardrobe, but they're one of the most versatile. They can dress up jeans for an evening out or make an office outfit look feel even more powerful as soon as you slip them on.

Mango Leather Pumps (£50)

Christian Louboutin Pigalle 85 Patent-Leather Pumps (£525)

Jimmy Choo Rene 65 Suede and Patent-Leather Pumps ($475)

Balenciaga Scrunch Leather Pumps (£650)


Every summer, you'll find yourself reaching for your chicest pair of flat sandals. Whether it's jetting off on a tropical holiday or just heading to an alfresco brunch, this shoe style is an absolute necessity for the warmer months.

& Other Stories Duo Strap Leather Sandals (£55)

Ancient Greek Sandals Clio Leather Sandals ($125)

Mango Denim Cotton Sandals (£50)

ATP Atelier Astrid Leather Sandals (£140)


Classic sneakers like Converse, Vans, and Adidas will always be a cool-girl wardrobe staple. Pair them with jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses—you name it. We love that they add an effortless air to any outfit. Plus, they're insanely comfortable and make the ideal travel shoes. You're pretty much guaranteed to end up repurchasing if you made the mistake of tossing these already (speaking from personal experience).

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star '70s Sneakers (£65)

& Other Stories Veja V-10 Sneakers (£115)

Nike Classic Cortez Trainers in Retro Leather (£60)

Superga Cotu Classic (£59)


Name a more classic winter shoe style than black ankle boots. Seriously. A good pair of black ankle boots are as essential to your wardrobe as a white button-down or black blazer. They'll be the most-worn shoes in your closet during autumn and winter since they go with virtually everything, so do yourself a favor and hold on to these.

Arket Mid-Heel Leather Ankle Boots (£190)

Cos Chunky Leather Chelsea Boots (£180)

Christian Louboutin Ziptotal 55 Leather Ankle Boots (£895)

ASOS Design Roisin Premium Leather Square Toe Boots (£60)


Combat boots are one of those shoe trends that aren't really a trend, as they come back every year. They may seem like a trend because all of a sudden you'll notice them everywhere, but think of them like leopard print—they're literally always in style. So even if you're having a sleeker shoe moment, hold onto your Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens 1460 Pascal Virginia Leather Ankle Boots (£149)

& Other Stories Chunky Platform Leather Boots (£165)

Russell & Bromley Combat (£225)

Stuart Weitzman Mila Ankle Boots (£525)
