Darlings, let’s talk about the five pairs of shoes women over 50 MUST have in their closets, shall we? With a heavy travel itinerary on the horizon, I’m curating my best sartorial choices while keeping in mind that I will be doing plenty of walking, sightseeing, dinners out and beyond. These five pairs of shoes for women over 50 can get you by on just about any occasion.

Take it from a woman who has had her fair share of foot surgeries and injuries… just because you make smart choices doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.

Best Shoes After 50

Animal Print Flats

Time to get wild, darlings. Animal print flats are a must and I consider them a “staple” for your shoe wardrobe.

How to wear them? That’s even wilder… think of Animal Print as a neutral, which is to say it can be mixed with anything, including other prints, patterns, colors, et al. In short, go wild when it comes to mixing and matching these flats with your wardrobe for an end look that is both chic and modern.

Get the gorgeous Blugirl flats pictured above for $264,96, reduced from nearly $400,  here.

Booties

Booties are a new classic. They can be worn in all seasons and with any manner of apparel. Wear them during spring with shorts + skirts. It’s fall and winter that really illustrate the work-horse like prowess of booties. Pair your favorite booties with rolled up jeans, leggings and even cuffed trousers. Or wear them with a maxi-dress or skirt and sweater.

Peep Toe Wedges

What’s as sexy as a high heel, and practically seasonless? Why a peep toe wedge of course, darlings.

The “peep” allows for a pop of color via a peek at well-manicured toes. Wedges, which can be found in a variety of heel heights, depending on how comfortable you are in shoes with some height, provide much of what so many women love about heels but in a more practical design.

Get the UMA WEDGE BOOTIE in brown, normally $109, for less than $40 here.

Ballet Flats

Ballet flats are simply a must! If you can only purchase one pair, I recommend nude. Perfect for traveling and unbelievably comfortable (if you get the right pair), nude ballet flats will be your go–to shoe. It’s the shoe that truly goes with everything in your wardrobe and saves your style when no other shoe will do.

Meet the deal of the century and get yours before they are all gone! These pretty and versatile nude ballet slippers by Liz Claiborne are marked down from $60 to just $18 while supplies last! Get them here.

Sneakers

There are so many stylish sneakers on the market now-a-days. And sneakers with style do not need to be less practical or less supportive and comfortable.

Fit and support are clearly key, but there’s no need to eschew style when it comes to sneakers.

These are the sneakers that will let the Grands know just how cool you are! These are Adidas Superstar sneakers (pictured above), a vintage-inspired style that is all the rage with the kids — and frankly, I think they are pretty as a picture…and comfy, too. Get them here.

I would love to hear what shoes you swear by (and where you purchased them, of course)! You can comment below or find me on FacebookTwitter and even… Instagram. Let’s chat!

    my top five are sneakers, shoes for church (2 pair) , flip flops and slippers.
    Mainly because I wear sneakers to work, flip flops for around the yard, slippers in the house
    and good shoes to church.

  • Love your list but… for travel I always have a pair of shoes that I can put my orthotec in. Must have support of my arch and what ever else needs sipport. Ballet slippers are divine. But. No support. I can wear them for a day but then need more help. I do love some Arche heels that I purchased 3 years ago. Simple heels that the French lady who sold them to me said, "We wear these like erercise shoes in France." Bottom line. I love shoes that fit and are confortble. Oh, I almost forgot patent leather clogs are also great for every day! Now as to fancy shoes. They just have to fit and be confortable and I’m good to go.

    Honey, you look petite like myself. I was so happy to see you in chunky platform heels in your adorable silver dress. You have a chic style, and I can appreciate it. Being 60 myself, I try to look updated, yet sophisticated, but I like to add height with heels, platforms, booties w/ 4″ heels. etc,…

    Mae West wore platform shoes to give her height (she was 5ft), and she was smart (wrote 9/13 of her movies, saved Paramount during the GD),and business savvy. I don’t want to do the Mae Shuffle, but I want to look taller. Mae West is one of my role models. A woman ahead of her time. She broke rules, and I do as well.

      I sure would love to meet you. You are one interesting gal. I am going to Google Mae West and learn about her. When I wear my shoes and boots that give me height I walk taller and I feel my power and most important: I feel feminine. Happy Holidays. Warmly, Honey
