For a lady, shoes are a vital part of both her wardrobe and her self-image. You can change your personality and mood as often as you change your footwear, and so the range of shoes in a lady’s collection will often say a lot about the type of person she is. Just look at the girls in Sex in the City. They would not be seen in a pair of hiking boots, for example, and spend a huge portion of their wages on getting the latest designer shoes from the top designers.
A lady’s shoes are thus a teller of her personality. If you wear high heel shoes all the time people will see you as someone who likes to dress up, feel powerful (for there is no denying the power of heels), and yet who also likes the slight vulnerability of wearing teetering heels. You might need an arm to lean on, perhaps, more than if you were wearing flat sneakers. That is not to say that power only comes with heels. Being grounded and well balanced in a pair of flat pumps is just as powerful, and perhaps more practical.
The range of ladies shoes is far wider than the range for men, which many men find disappointing. In fact, historically shoes were just as important for men as for women, with many of the designs being unisex up until a couple of centuries ago. Rich people used to wear dainty leather slippers with varying degrees of decoration on them; the daintier the slipper, the more money that person had as they would not have needed to work.
There is perhaps a slight hangover from this tradition in the ladies shoes on offer today, with vibrant colours, decorations and rich materials being used to produce them. However, today’s women need to be more practical than their predecessors and can’t afford to buy a new pair of shoes every time they go out. This does not mean that a lady cannot relish the thought of new shoes, or fancy evening shoes, even if she is obliged to consider practicality before beauty from Monday to Friday.
So, look at a woman’s feet to see what she is wearing and whether that can tell you anything about her personality from her choice of footwear.
