It’s true what girls say about a guy’s feet: Just by looking at them, we can tell the size of a guy’s (wait for it) ego, maturity level and a million other things. The shoes a man wears do more than just cover his unclipped toenails; they provide valuable insight into what it’d be like to walk a mile with him. Here’s what your footwear is telling ladies about you…
Rocking a flashy pair of mint condition Air Jordans shows that you’re somewhat into sports, but are also into indie music and probably follow at least two food trucks on Twitter. Also, you likely have some action figures still in their original packaging somewhere in the back of your closet.
Beat Up Chuck Taylors
Chucks are now, as they have been for decades, the perfect way to tell a girl, “Hey, I’m broke, but you won’t really care because I’m really good at playing the guitar.” Chuck wearers are generally laid-back about everything except craft beers and free trade coffee.
Expensive, Perfectly Polished Dress Shoes
Dudes with extremely expensive taste in dress shoes generally have solid wine knowledge and likely still read hard copies of magazines, despite owning a tablet and a backup tablet. They are also a high-risk population for putting girls in the undesirable position of being less well-dressed than their boyfriend.
Flip flop wearers don’t have a care in the world. Some of those nonexistent cares are things girls might find important — like doing laundry or sleeping on something other than a futon — but these guys are always able to find a party.
Shoes that are intended for hiking, biking or mountain climbing — but are worn in city/suburban situations — say, “I love adventure, as long as it’s nowhere near a mall or a trendy sushi restaurant.” These guys generally have nice physiques, despite the fact that their muscles may be obscured by their often unkempt body hair.
Boat shoe wearers take leisure seriously and would be hard-pressed to name just one favorite scotch. They’ve read at least a handful of the classics, but will also happily crack a dirty joke in the right company.
