    Do women really judge men by the shoes men wear? I read somewhere that since women feel that they have to pay a lot, and put effort into shoes it is only fair that they judge men by the shoes they wear.

    To me it sounds like rubbish, I just wanted to now how true or relevant this was.

    I have to say, "Yes." My wife once noticed my boss's (cheap/worn out/nasty looking) shoes and she has never forgotten it. She brings it up every time his name comes up in conversation.

    I feel like most women will notice your shoes in two instances:

    1) They're horrible, out of place, ratty, old or not for the occasion

    2) They're spectacular and really stand out (in a good way)


    Besides the two extremes, I dont think women pay too much attention to the shoes.

    Shoes and watch.

    Shoes tell people where you're going.

    A Watch tells people how fast you need to get there.

    Also, most women prefer non-SF-approved shoes for some odd reason. Just like most people prefer Jay Z to Shostakovich, I suppose.

    I wouldn't generalize either way, but I've never received a compliment on my shoes from a woman -- only men.

    Never had many women notice my shoes. They seem to only notice when bright colored pants are worn.

    It's a bonus but it won't get you laid (or unget you laid).

    Not sure that that's such a great analogy.

    No. Very low on the list of what a woman would judge someone on, extremely bad or amazing shoes aside.
