There seems to be a holiday for every day of the week these days, but National Best Friends Day is definitely one we can get on board with.

While we’re here in the office sending emails and texts to our best buddies going way back, we also thought today would be a good time to imagine our favorite friendly shoe connections.

There are just some people who really love their shoes, and we’d like to imagine that the shoe almost loves them back. That being the case, we’re declaring these perfect pairings as our favorite “BFFs” of  the footwear world.

Major pop culture following doesn’t even begin to cover it. The Air Jordan is as iconic as the legendary man himself, and let’s be honest, the two are inseparable.

Jennifer Lopez & Giuseppe Zanotti Sneakers

Sure, Lopez can rock a stiletto of any height, but how many times have you spotted her in these statement wedges? Our point exactly. As reliable as a best friend for any fashionable outing.

Carrie Bradshaw & Manolo Blahnik

Would Mr. Big’s proposal really have meant as much with another shoe? Probably not. Because Carrie and Manolos go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Cinderella & Her Glass Slippers

The Fairy Godmother has good shoe taste. Cinderella snags all the attention (and her Prince Charming) in her standout glass slippers.

Dorothy and Her Ruby Slippers

Granted, Dorothy got the slippers by accidentally dropping a house on a witch, but they’re also the perfect fashion statement with her gingham dress. (Not to mention they have magic powers.) We’re calling this a win-win.
