Model, Minneapolis, MN
What shoes go best with short shorts? Something like my moccasins, or a pretty sandal.
What would you not wear with these shorts? There’s not much you couldn’t wear. If you have the confidence, go for it.
What kind of shoe style best shows off your legs? Probably not little ankle boots, which chop off the leg. I’d say a nice sandal, flat or heel.
Where do you do most of your shoe shopping? Some storefronts just get your attention, like Filene’s Basement. But I’m an equal opportunity shoe shopper. I’ll go anywhere.
Clogs or oxfords? Clogs. I’ve had a favorite pair for quite some time.
