I've been known to just throw on a old pair if I'm going to run out real quick but my mom always says a first impression is a lasting one. But I was wondering how many women really focuses on shoes alone?
my dress could be better I don't dress in bright flashy things.
I pay attention, it's almost just a habit of looking down though but it's not to check their shoes just getting an overall view of them...
I was extremely attracted to this guy once, not 'just' the physical but his personality as well and I see him walking to someone and I'm looking, I'm looking...and then, AHHHHH, the shooooees.!
I'm not superficial but man! Them mugs were tore up from the floor, up...he had a decent outfit on, very well dressed, and he had other shoe options. I was cryin' laughin' with my sister that very same night about it. Before we would see him again she would say " Na' don't let him wear those shoes again"...smh
Those shoes were crying to jump in the dumpster, extreme butterballs...lmso
So, no, I don't focus on shoes alone but I tell you one thing, if I didn't have the extreme level of attraction that I had for him, he would have lost major cool points..and your mother was right, lol, first impression ( esp. if it's bad) is a lasting one or an unforgettable one.
Shoes are important to me. I tend to judge a guy based on what shoes he is wearing/sporting. I usually equate well kept and immaculate shoes with a guy who cares about his appearance and grooming. If he is in his sports shoes but they are still well maintained, that sends a message across too. If the guy is completely shoddy and is also sporting fraying pants... I'd give him a pass. I don't date guys who are slobs and don't care about their appearance. Of course it could be a comfort factor but it doesn't excuse for complete lack of one attention to dressing while in the public.
Thing is, shoes are generally not the most obvious thing to be noticed on the first go when you look at a guy. But they speak volumes because good shoes show that the guy cared to look into the last detail as well and not just his obvious outfit.
I like when guys where converse or basketball shoes, or running shoes.
But, it doesn't matter about shoes in the end.
I think your mom is right because we live in such a high materialistic society.
You don't want to dress in bright flashy things.
I was at disneyland yesterday and I kept noticing these good looking guys whering nike shoes, one that was orange and gray. I can't help what I notice and it doesn't matter in the end because my future boyfriend can have shaggy shoes, but I do notice nice shoes. (don't we all?)
I look at a guy's everything. I look at him from top to bottom and look at the entire package, shoes included. If he's wearing some old bummy shoes that look like they've been worn for years that's not attractive. First impression does count because if I don't know you that's all I have to go on. Just like you would judge me on my appearance, I would be doing the same to you as well.
i wouldn't judge you if I see you out in jandals or sneakers, I'm happy to compromise on a guys sense of style because there are obviously more important considerations but you're not exactly helping your game by not caring... and I would be impressed if I met you and you were wearing something stylish and leather.
also if you're actually trying to look good, then yes, shoes alone can ruin it...it doesn't matter what else you're wearing, pair it with sneakers or beige loafers and it's ruined.
Alwayyyyyyyys. For some stupid reason it's kinda important to me haha. You don't have to dress flashy just have a bit of a fashion sense. Nothing fancy. And who cares what you wear of your just going out for a run. No one willnotice cause everyone dresses comfy when going on a run.
I only notice shoes if they are in some way ostentatious. However, when a guy is not wearing shoes I cannot help but notice his feet, even if it's in a situation where you would typically go without shoes.
Hahaha yes I was dating this guy who wore the same shoes to all out dates they were like old basketball shoes and I don't know why and I know this is dumb but I hated those shoes x) hahaha and I even brought them up in a conversation, saying oh you always wear the same shoes... but I didn't have the courage to flat out say they were ugly. I don't know there was just something about his shoes that nudged me wrong hahaha... I'm so weird lol. He was cool tho :)
I'm a shoes guy. I'm swiftly becoming a collector of cool shoes, but I ain't rich. Still, I love to be wearing good shoes. I have a beautiful pair of Caramel Chelsea boots at the moment, and a real cool brown leather jacket to go with it coming in the post!
I also have a fancy pair of dark brown leather shoes.
Both feel so great to walk in, especially the Chelsea boots.
For the next wedding I'm attending (relatively soon), I plan to be wearing a pair of black and white two-tone zoot shoes. Black with the white wings across the width just before the nose. I think their technically called wing-tips. Now they are cool, and if you tell me they're not I don't care I still think they're cool and I will have a pair.
Shoes are more important than a lot of people take for I think.
Depends on the shoes... most chicks only look at wether theyre falling apart or not but if you wear something flashy ( I don't mean shiny but something that catches your eye) like high top ferraris people will notice. Also if your shoes match your style so if you got a purple tank on with a purple hat and you're wearing shoes that have some purple on them, it gives the impression you know how to dress.
