Do women really judge men by the shoes men wear? - Page 10

It really depends on the woman. some care more than others, but overall I'd say yes they definitely do judge your shoes.

Believe me, they will judge you more by the content of your wallet than by your frigging shoes...

you dont need anything in your wallet besides your ID and your american express (preferably centurion), that's all.

...and most are smart enough to make the link between shoes and the contents of the wallet.

Women are impressed most if they catch a whiff of Saphir Renovateur, the Elixir of the Gods, from your shoes.

It's a pheromone that announces, "No unsightly creasing here."

My (very recently made) ex, told me she'll never be able to ignore men's shoes again and cursed me for it. Trained that one right, I'd say.

Simple well polished shoes complete the outfit -The answer is yes. Garish , unpolished , well worn shoes will also get noticed but not in a positive way.

I caught a large breasted woman staring at my shoes today. They were the RL Marlowe in delicious cordovan leather. She could not get enough.

I kind of do. While i can't tell the difference between Aldens and whatever else a guy is wearing (most of the time, anyway), I can tell if he cares about his style/how he looks by how well his shoes go together with his outfit. I guess I do kind of pigeon hole guys when I meet them based on shoes, though. What's funny is that I don't think the shoes themselves are ugly, but I correlate how I imagine a guy's personality and tastes would be based on his shoes.

ie: hiking shoes = guy either getting his BSC or in grad school for something to do with biology/zoology, probably grew up in a smallish Canadian town, probably likes Vonnegut books and reading philisophical theory and thinks it makes him artsy, has simple tastes but loves Indian food, hates shopping and girls who wear make up, doesn't understand 'pop culture obsession' etc etc...

I'm probably wrong most of the time, but I can't help the pigeon-holing.

Is that linear and simple?

I can understand you judge people by the clothes they're wearing but it is only a first impression...

You can meet a sharp dresser wearing hiking shoes because he went on a hike...

I don't know about the rest of your pigeon-holing, but the Canadian part is spot on.

Actually, apparently, women have very active imaginations when it comes to putting the shoes to the man... you gotta love the hiking shoes to Vonnegut correlation.
