    For some of the contestants, the more straightforward the shoe, the better. Miss Washington, Reina Almon, will be wearing heels with a simple silver platform heel with a striking blue sparkly heel. The real standout is on her shoes' toes. It's pretty clear Miss Washington has Seattle Seahawk pride, with the NFL team's mascot on her shoes.

    It looks like Miss Minnesota might have a hard time walking in her shoes during the 2014 "Show Us Your Shoes Parade." Reminding everyone of the chilly Minnesota weather, Miss Minnesota Rebecca Yeh will be wearing ice skates! These aren't your normal skates though: rhinestones decorate the blade guards, and a snowflake hangs from one of the laces.

    Miss Indiana, Terrin Zoe Thomas, will be strapping on some very creative heels. With Indiana University Hoosier basketball pride as the prominent theme, the heel features a basketball on the toe strap, Hoosier colors, a basketball net, and even a foam hand!

    Miss Florida Myrrhanda Jones will be walking on Florida alligators---made of rhinestones that is. Her heels are also in University of Florida colors: green and orange.

    Jennifer Smestad, this year's Miss Arizona, will be donning very simple sparkly pumps---except for the giant cactus that is. Representing Arizona's desert, there is a green shimmery cactus and even a cowboy hat.

    Boots are not just for cowboys! Both Miss Texas and Miss Virgin Islands are wearing boots that reflect their state personalities. Miss Texas Ivana Hill's boots are glammed out with bejeweled designs and a sparkly Texas state flag. Miss Virgin Islands Ashley Massiah's boots are much more simple in a bright white shade and the emblem from the Virgin Islands state flag.

    Red roses are very significant to the state of Kentucky. For example, the winner of the Kentucky Derby receives 554 red roses. There's even a song named "Kentucky Rose," so it's no surprise that Miss Kentucky Jenna Day will be wearing tall black boots decorated with red roses.

    What reminds people more of Idaho than Idaho potatoes! Miss Idaho 2014, Sarah Downs, is wearing a tribute to Idaho potatoes on her shoes for the "Show Us Your Shoes" parade in sparkly baked potato brown colored heels complete with butter and chives.
