Not on the poll: Leather/Suede sneakers, ala GATS

Wearing sneakers or trainers to a first date doesn't make much sense. I'd wear them at the beach perhaps although nowadays I tend to wear them as impromptu slippers in the yard for jobs.

Depends on the date/where you are going/what you are doing.

I’d only wear sneakers in any situation if I were going somewhere good shoes would be inappropriate, but gun to my head I’d probably wear something like classic Converse. I can’t see it ever coming up, though. If I want to go casual I’ll wear suede loafers or a pair of boat shoes. Sneakers are for athletes and layabouts :)

Terrible question...........too much nuance comes into play. Sneakers are perfectly acceptable on a first date depending on a plethora of factors. In NYC where sneaker culture is prevalent, I wear sneakers of all types with various outfits as I choose - and females do even more.

I doubt that it matters much as it is likely to also be your last date.
Only if the date is the girl equivilent of you.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
