MOLEBOGENG SIKWE My shoes, whether heels or flats, give me that extra confidence I need. They’re a reminder to always walk tall and put my best foot forward.

If you have dark skin,choose a colour that isn’t too light so you can avoid looking ashy. Your chosen colour will depend on how dark your skin is. If yours is tan or darker, then deep red or orange colours will suit you best.
