What Your Power Shoe Is, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

The fierce and fabulous Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” We know you’re totally going to conquer the world, so now you just need the right shoes. Based on your zodiac sign, we’ve found the best pair for you!

Aquarius: Combat boots

Nothing says femme fatale like combat boots. The Aquarius woman isn’t interested in playing around. “I would take on the world in my Doc Martens!” says Ariel Vaisbort, a junior at Western University. “They’re badass and they make me feel like I can get shit done.”

The Aquarius girl is unconcerned with what others think of her, wearing combat boots (like this pair of Doc Martens) like an expressive armor: tough and statement-making. We need a pair ASAP.

Pisces: Nude heels

A wise girl like you needs a nude heel. Being artistic, you need a shoe that isn’t going to mess with your beautifully curated outfit. Easygoing and versatile, the nude heel is the Pisces woman’s perfect power shoe.

Aries: Gladiator sandals

A bold personality like yours needs a bold shoe to match, and there are few shoes as daring as the gladiator sandal. You’ve got confidence to kill for and you like to take risks with your style. In a gladiator sandal (like this pair from Target), you’ll feel liberated and strong. It’s a shoe fit for a warrior, just like you!

Taurus: Sneakers

Practical and patient, the Taurus girl needs a shoe that will allow her to be comfortable and in control. She wants a shoe that she can run in and run the world in. Sneakers are all of that, plus they come in all sorts of different colors and designs, so the options are endless. We like this classic Adidas pair. Like they say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Gemini: Strappy heels

The Gemini woman is the epitome of sexy cool, so she needs a shoe that is on her level. The strappy heel is super on-trend right now. For the adventurous, irresistible and strong Gemini, these shoes are the Holy Grail.

Cancer: Oxfords

If there is anything to be said about your style, it’s that you like to be comfortable. But Cancer also happens to be one of the most romantic signs. Pair comfort with old-world romance and ta-da: oxfords. They’re flats so they’re easy to walk in, but they also make an outfit look polished and pulled together. Cancer ladies will love the ’50s charm of these brogues.   

Leo: Wedges

You are laid-back yet productive, so a wedge is your power shoe. Typically more comfortable than straight-up heels, but more assertive than flats, the wedge is the perfect balance for you. And the best part is that there are a ton of different styles (we like these black booties by TOMS) to keep up with your ever-changing style.

Virgo: Ballet flats

Classy and comfy, ballet flats are the ideal shoe for the practical Virgo girl. Ballet flats are a stylish shoe that also allows you to get work done without pain. They look good, they feel good, and you can dress them up or down, so they go with pretty much everything. Whether you’re just going to class in jeans or to your internship in a skirt, your shoes will always be ready to rock, and so will you!

Libra: Block heels

Block heels say sophisticated but not too formal, and practical but not boring. These shoes are refined, just like you. With your social spirit, you know how to work a room; block heels can keep up with all of your mingling without hurting your feet. You’ll be the classiest queen in the room.

Scorpio: Stilettos

It takes a dedicated woman to rock stilettos. Naturally, you’re that kind of person. Passionate and brave, if you can’t work some stilettos, then girl, we don’t know who can. Your wild heart and spontaneous spirit make you a dangerous woman, for sure. We can’t think of anything more powerful than that confidence.

Sagittarius: Mountain boots

As far as we’re concerned, these are the best shoes for world travel. The Sagittarius spirit is known to be a wandering one, so you need a shoe that can stand up to your globetrotting (or dreams thereof). The durability of mountain boots allows your spontaneous side to come out in full effect, and no matter where you go, you don’t have to worry about whether your shoes can handle it or not. If travel equals knowledge, and knowledge equals power, than mountain boots are undoubtedly your power shoe.

Capricorn: Black pumps

Capricorn women are productive AF, so you need a shoe that will make you look and feel both polished and efficient. Enter: black pumps (like this pair from Macy’s). Since they’re black, they’ll go with anything, whether for work or play. 

“The ‘click, click, click’ of heels makes me really happy,” Natalie Pistone, sophomore at Maryville University says. Plus, who doesn’t feel like a classy lady and a BO$$ in black heels?

You can rock classic-chic like Capricorn or ancient strength like Aries. Real talk, though, you can take the world by storm in any shoe. And if that’s not powerful, then we don’t know what is.
