Shoes are always an important part of an outfit. The first step in selecting the best shoes is choosing shoes that complement your clothing, rather than ones that compete with your outfit.
For that reason, I always recommend pairing busier shoes with simple outfits, and wearing simple shoes with clothing that features a lot of prints, embellishments or dynamic accessories. It can be tricky to find shoes that complement your clothing, without dominating or being overpowered by it, but the reality is, it's a simple balancing act.
...and just remember that good shoes will take you to good places
