Shoes Make the Man

by Allen Thompson

Isn't it fascinating the way women obsess over shoes?

They love to shop for shoes, try on shoes, buy shoes, and show off their shoes. It's practically an obsession with them. Most women have a dozen or more pairs of shoes. And some women have hundreds of pairs.

On the other hand, most men couldn't care less about shoes. We see them as something we put on our feet to protect us in case we should step on something sharp.

And most men really couldn't care less what kind of shoes a woman is wearing. It doesn't really matter to us if she's got six inch heels or sneakers, if they're brown or blue, or even if they match her purse. You will never see "her shoes" listed in any survey as an important quality that a man looks for in a woman.

However, she does notice our shoes.

What we put on our feet seems to be important to women. Why? Who knows. That's just the way it is.

I'll never forget going to work a few years ago wearing my brand new, very nice, and somewhat expensive shoes. The very first thing that was said to me as a I walked into the building was not "hello" or "good morning" or "how are you" but nice shoes... and by an attractive lady.

So spend a few bucks on some cool shoes. Your investment will pay off handsomely with the women. They will notice them. They will notice you.
