It's reasonably likely that you have your mother to thank for your current shoe addiction. An interest in fashion is often passed generationally, from mother to daughter, teaching you to do everything from tie your first sneakers to how to score that awesome shoe deal you'll be bragging about for months. And, like everything else in fashion, your mom certainly has her favorites when it comes to her footwear wardrobe.
In honor of Mother's Day, which is this Sunday, we did a little brainstorming and figured out what your mom's favorite shoe styles say about her. Check out our results below and see which one matches up with your mom's aesthetic.
