The Univision Shoe Diaries: Teresa Rodriguez confesses a childhood secret
Think you know Teresa? Get to know a whole new side of her…
Today Teresa Rodriguez’s job as a co-anchor on Aqui y Ahora has the world looking at her from head to toe. She often gets emails asking her where she gets her fabulous shoes from. But this stylish maven’s obsession with shoes goes back to a very special childhood Christmas.
The year was 1966 when Nancy Sinatra came out with her hit, “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” and for a young Teresa walking in the now classic white go-go boots was her one Christmas wish. Too bad she wasn’t granted her wish, at least not right away.
Check out her story below:
Teresa wants to impart some of her hard-earned shoe wisdom today:
1. It’s important that you try on the shoes. If you can, take them home (first make sure you can return if there is a problem) and wear them on a carpeted area for a bit to ensure that they fit right.
2. Don’t go shoe shopping when your feet are swollen.
3. Be practical. Ask yourself, “How much am I really going to wear this?” If you are on a budget consider what you are really going to get out of this shoe.
4. Take a look in the mirror. Look at yourself in full length and see how your leg looks with the shoe on.
And finally she has one key rule when she shoe shops: “I know style rules but comfort should be a key factor. I had surgery on my toe and so I’ve learned my lesson the hard way that I don’t really buy it unless it’s comfortable.”
Sage advice we’ll be taking ourselves.

“Traditional in the front, party in the back,” says Teresa of these fab Giuseppe Zanotti’s with a furry leopard print heel.
“This was a case where I gave in and I bought them,” she says of her yellow suede and patent leather heels, which she’s worn quite a bit.
Teresa likes to stick to classic shapes when picking out evening shoes, as in these gorgeous studded Valentino heels.
