Walk a mile in their shoes, as five cool women talk about their favourite pairs!
Tarini Manchanda, Digital Content Creator and Founder, The Initial Studio
“I am wearing a pair of black leather, closed-toe mules with a classic crystal detail from Manolo Blahnik. I treasure these heels because they are from my favourite brand, and I love them as they are very comfortable and feature an elegant two-inch heel. It is a huge leap for my five-foot frame! For me, this shoe means stepping into my new era— one in which I choose myself, I am more confident and where I can finally let go of my insecurities.”
Avantika Bakshi, Producer and Disc Jockey
“This pair of black, knee-length chunky boots from Steve Madden stir nostalgia and bring back memories of the time when I studied at Babson College, Massachusetts. They were my go-to pair when I was in college as they protected me from the punishing Boston winters. Even today, when I wear these boots while dancing, they rekindle the bygone memories. Being versatile, comfortable, and bold, I have enjoyed pairing my boots with short dresses for DJ events and lazed around in the same pair for sunny winter lunches with friends and family. The boots, like my personality, are fun and bold! One could even say that these boots and Avantika (as an artist) ‘sync’ well together.”
Aradhana Minawala, Co- Founder, CAI
“The power that a good pair of shoes holds is unbelievable. Great pair of heels can add flair to the dullest of outfits. I truly believe in comfortable fashion and there is no better synonym for comfort than CAI. These strappy heels give me a great deal of confidence and help correct my posture. And I feel I make better eye contact once I have my favourite pair on. I love that this pair elongates my legs, making them appear more attractive. And that’s the reason I recommend everyone to own at least one pair of high-heeled shoes that brings out the best in them.”
Punanya Virmani Co-Founder, Trykiya, Wedding Artistry, and Humans of Delhi
“The shoes which carry me through the rainiest of days and the coldest of winters are my Hunters! Keeping me comfortable and stylish at all times, they are part of all my travels and adventures.”
Bhavisha Dave, Co-Founder, Director Capsul India
“It is an incredible era for fashion. Streetwear and sneaker culture has welcomed everyone into the fashion world. Sneakers are a comfortable cultural powerhouse. As an enthusiast, I try copping a pair that is a female-led collaboration. My favourite pair of shoes is the Ambush Dunk High in the OG Black Colourway, which is a female collaboration with NBA and Nike. The founder, Yoon Ahn drew inspiration from the Japanese bike culture, which is visible in the accentuated swoosh that resembles the tailpipes of a bike. These are the details that make me love this pair even more.”
