Tell Us: What's Your Favorite Shoe?

11/10/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

At the launch of the new shoe-shopping site, footwear was definitely on the brain. Rosario Dawson told PEOPLE that while she may get dressed up for red carpets, she usually choose fun over fashion for her down-time shoes. “I love my rain boots that are camouflage. Those are like my favorite things ever. And those are really great with like a little mini or whatever. . .and you never know when you may need to splash!” And Lucy Liu told PEOPLE that she’s all about comfort, “I have really cool, beaten up pair of Uggs that I like to wear at home. When I go out, I like to wear sneakers a lot too.” We love wellies too, and we are all about our shoes being comfy — even our heels. Tell us: What is your favorite shoe? What do you look for in a pair of shoes?

My favorite pair of shoes are these Nine West boots I got about a year ago…ah I love them…they’re a soft black leather and it’s a short boot with a little heel and a pointed toe and around the back of the heel and the point there are little tiny gold studs, but the best part is that they are soooooo comfortable, I call them my slippers.

Pammy on

I love my J.Crew wellies and my Crocs! Both very comfy and cute to wear.

Even Though they are out of style i have seen my girl paris hilton wear them the Uggs, the just look so comfy ing every way.

On an everyday basis: comfort, convenience, and sass. My closet is STOCKED with funky little slip-on keds-ish kicks with different prints n styles such as pink w/ tiny white polka dots, blue and white diamond checkered Vans, khaki canvas w/ a giant sequined star over the toes, and cord flower print with a little bow and ‘chuck taylor’ rubber front. oh yeah which reminds me we can’t forget the classic Chucks all over the closet in different colors and prints as well! And as for nightime: keep the sass, add some sexy [4″ heels meaning the comfort goes out the door with that!], and uniqueness all the time: the leopard heels that should be a staple to every woman’s closet [mine are peep-toe], metallic silver stiletto pumps, and my favorite black satin Manolo sandals with diamond encrusted strap over the toes…. ahHhHh….. i LoVe shoes! i think you can see that from how into it I got with this comment! lol have a good day ladies…

I will b/c guess what?! I’m entitled to my own opinion. Who would have thought?! ;-)

P.S. There’s an Ugg boot forum too.

I love killer heels. I like Jimmy Choos. But sometimes one has to relax and Uggs are great for this!

Heather on

Ok, so they’re probably the ugliest shoes ever, but they feel like HEAVEN and never fall apart: my Birkenstocks! I wear them everyday in the winter and have to get my husband a pair this year because he steals mine!!

During Summer time I have to have stylish flip flops. I can’t live w/out them. Comfort and style are the key with me. I am a fan of Michelle D heels. I love the 50’s style pumps from Michelle D.

Red pointed toe flats! They look amazing with my black jeans. At least that’s what I like to think:))

i’m jealous of all you grls talking about Uggs and different kinda shoes for hot n cold weather… i’m in Miami, so the Uggs are definitely not an optiontho i’ve seen a few grls wear ’em for the fashion while suffocating of hot sweaty feet most likely lol] and as for the rest of the year we pretty much stay with the same selection of shoewear since the weather doesn’t change drastically at all.

I love my chanel boots. Jimmy choos and stalettos are also in my favorite shoe closet. Lets think I love my uggs and burks(even though they are out of style they’re comfy for church and school.) Shox are my fav. tennis shoes. They’re comfy and they’re good for volleyball, basketball, jump training(figure skating), track, fitness training(for soccer) and just having a jog. I have 11 pairs and i can’t wear any other tennis shoes besides nike(for my ankle and knee support. Love em’. I need to go shopping for new shoes, I havent gone in 3&1/2 days. I need to throw out those chanel boots from last year.

Rgal on

I love my Uggs too, I don’t care what anyone says. They are the comfiest shoes in the world and really the only option on certain days in Wisconsin.

Erica on

For long shopping days, nothing beats sneakers. Eveything else kills my feet. My choice are New Balances! The best sneakers out there. Easy Spirits run a close second. They feel like slippers!

For a night out, I love a gold strappy heel. NINA makes some very cute and affordable ones.

For everything in between, I live for boots. Ankle boots are my favorite for years since they easily slip under some jeans. Franco Sarto makes awesome boots and also Nine West never fails.

I love all my shoes I am a girly girl

Colette on

I love all my shoes so much, but my favorites are a pair of Steve Madden stiletto cowboy boots, and a pair of Dollhouse peep-toe wedge.

*** on

I love my black velvet manolo blahnik 4 inch heels. They have a closed heel and
an open and strappy toe.

Susanna on

I love the Louis Vuitton pony-styled calf leather ankle boots. Nothing brighter than this. Most shoes are just black and brown…too boring.
