When shopping for shoes, women may choose shoe styles based on their mood, while men choose shoes based on activity and comfort. Sometimes, (let’s say often times) the lack of attention and effort that men put into shoe shopping makes it a challenge for them to put their outfits together successfully. If men knew that as a general rule, shoes convey a message to the rest of the world about who they are, would that then prompt them to shop and choose more wisely. As a nudge to single men, be advised that women often check out a mans shoes upon the first encounter.
Wondering what may go through a woman’s mind when they see your shoes? Well for one, how clean he keeps his shoes says a lot about him. If his shoes are clean he must take care of them. Chances are, he takes care of himself. If his shoes look abused and dirty, chances are he just might be a slob.
More than any other article of clothing, shoes can influence how others view us, not to mention how we view ourselves. This summer when shopping for shoes whether it’s for office casual days, or laid back vacation days – choose wisely.
