Do women really look at a man's shoes?

  1. Nov 24, 2012 #1
    If so, what do they garner by them?

    Today I bought my very first pair of very fine shoes. Hopefully they'll last a loooong time. I'm also just wondering if what they say is true, do mothers really tell their daughters to check out a man's shoes?

    Normal women, no. Superficial women, I've known golddiggers that judge men by their shoes.

    My wife checked out my shoes. She married me anyway.

    *looks at his own shoes* ...I certainly hope not.

    I like to see a man that wears nice shoes, I don't consciously look at it though. A man that wears ugly white sportshoes all day long would put me off, it's a first impression thing.

    Well if it's something you buy 20 pairs of a year you probably are an expert on the subject :)

    You can't have fun in nice shoes!

    Women pay attention to a man's whole wardrobe, not just the shoes.

    From what I've heard, men in general couldn't care less about what women wear at all. That's why women are the superficial ones, men only cares about what lies beneath.

    Only the shy ones.

    This describes me to a T. I don't care what a woman wears, I only care about what lies beneath.

    Well. Downright intimidating women (head-shoes-head) while shy type (shoes-head-shoes). Both' stare in the middle. Goes with guys also... Don't ask me why. "Head scratch"

    @julcab12 lol interested, never thought about it like that.

    Last summer I went outside to get grab something out of my car wearing my roommates pink flip flops with a flower on them. I figured I only have to walk ten feet down the hall, down three flights of stairs, and it's in the middle of the day so everyone is at work. Naturally a girl who lived in the first floor happened to be doing the same and sees the flowers.

    She said "Nice flip flops?".

    We're still dating.

    In college, if I wasn't wearing nice broken-in running shoes, I was wearing broken-in work boots. One variation was when I was playing music, and I often wore cowboy boots. They were so comfortable to stand in - not so much for walking, though. If women were looking at my shoes, I probably got down-graded regularly by the shallow ones. That's OK.

    I'm okay with any woman willing to judge me by my shoes keeping herself out of my life.

    Beneath what, though..

    Isn't that a bit judgmental in itself? Do you really think that your appearance does not influence how people perceive you? Look at society and it should be very clear that appearance plays a big role, whether you like it or not. One needs to be a robot to have a completely blank impression of a person.

    Recently there was a discussion here on open-back tops, are people shallow for judging women on the tops they wear?

    Women who appreciate a pair of shoes are shallow, but people who find open-back tops poor taste, the showing of bra straps tacky, the trend of bra-less look attractive are.... ? Just as shallow as they claim other people to be?
