[NSFW] possibly. What's your footwear saying about you?

And to all, here’s the short video that inspired this question.

Practical, comfy, dressy for casual office….

I have a shoe fetish, but not in a sexual way. I don’t know why I spend so much money on shoes. I could care less about what any other article of clothing looks like or what brand it is, but when it comes to shoes I love having a name brand pair or something like that. My secret is that I got to thrift stores. I hate new models of shoes because they’re too flashy and everyone has them. The older styles make me feel more original and I like the look of them more (and they only cost $7–20 vs. $60+). So I guess it says I’m original? Or just weird.
[edit]: I’m not talking about fancy upscale shoes like Ralph Lauren or something you’d find at Macy’s, I’m talking about sneakers (e.g. Nike)

I wear shoes that kill my feet. I wear boring shoes for work, but most shoes hurt me. My boyfriend has a shoe fetish, especially for high boots.

My shoe collection says that I think teetering around with a shortened stride because of heels looks ridiculous.

Life’s too short for uncomfortable shoes.

My shoes get worn out pretty fast. They would say “walker” about me.

That my knees hurt.

Whenever possible I’m barefooted, so whatever that means. Old Hippy maybe?

Sunny2's avatar

Sneakers say I like to be able to move quickly and I care more about comfort than fashion. If I have on leather shoes (flats or short heels) I’m dressed up.

Steel toed Redwing work boots.

They scream loud, blue-collar excessive beer drinker..

That my feet and ankles can’t handle heels.

I loooove tall boots. But I like them flat or with a wide heel.

Right now I’ve got one pair of flat high boots, one pair of riding boots, one pair of combat-style boots, one pair of trainers, a pair of slip on sandals, and one pair of flip flops for beachgoing.

I do have one pair of knockout heels, strappy stilettos. Last time I wore them, I wiped out on some cobblestones and busted my knee. So I don’t wear those anymore.

You put your left foot in, your left foot out, in out, in out & shake it all about…

At this moment I am barefoot. You decide.

Jeruba's avatar

That I like both comfort and a moderate amount of style, but that when it comes to a choice, comfort wins.

Aethelwine's avatar

I own slippers, sandals and snow boots. I’m all about comfort.

I have flat feet. It’s funny, I like vaans a lot. They’re stereotypically a “skater” brand and I’ve never skated in my life. It does give off a “cool guy” vibe that is neither valid or rightfully earned. They’re just comfy and very flat. My feet are wide too. They just work for me.

My foot wear consists of sandals in summer, various styles, from comfy to sexy to river hiking sandals, and boots in winter. Durangos, Uggs, Cowboy boots, high heeled sexy boots.
I don’t do “shoes”.

I guess my footwear would say…” Classy hippie, cowgirl, biker babe.”

I had written a response to each of you and then accidently closed the window, losing it. I don’t have the resolve to go back and write it all again. I’ll just share that like many of you, I’m all about comfort. Sandals, running shoes, snow boots and one pair of nice go-to-meeting leather shoes. Mine wouldn’t meet Don Ward’s standards for shine, though.

My footwear says that I don’t give a rats flying fuck about what “Don” thinks about my shoes.

Currently wearing a ten year beat to hell pair of Sketchers, literally with holes all around enough to see my feet and toes. Sandals cover my feet better than my favorite Sketchers.

They will soon be put aside for the square toe Dingo Ring Boots which I wear through the late fall and winter. They are beat to hell too.

I’ve long ago slipped away from having cool goth boots to just wearing running shoes, even though I hate what they look like. I’m a waitress, I don’t have a car, I walk a lot, I’m always on my feet. Gotta be comfortable. I miss my crazy Viking vampire boots, but eh when I’m in Valhalla they’ll both be comfy and stylish. For now though, my spine appreciates me.

ETpro's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies & @Symbeline No Don Ward awards for any of the three of is. My three C’s of footwear a Comfort and Cost Control.

Katniss's avatar

A lot of my shoes would indicate that I may be a hooker. I’m not, but I do wear some pretty hooker like footwear.

ETpro's avatar

@Katniss Ooh, cool. That does bring out the shoe and foot fetish portion of my multi-pronged libido.

Katniss's avatar

@ETpro I’ve been a slutty shoe fan since I was about 15. lol
They’re very rarely comfortable, but somehow it doesn’t matter.

downtide's avatar

My shoes say I’m boring, a cheapskate and I walk everywhere.

ETpro's avatar

@Katniss Very cool. Foot massage in order.

@downtide A man after my own heart.

tups's avatar

I’ve got to have grounding, so I never wear high heels.

Katniss's avatar

@ETpro Yes, please!

Dutchess_III's avatar

What about all the shoes I have that I will never wear, but I couldn’t resist because they’re so pretty pretty? Sparkly cork wedgies with laces that lace up half way to your knee. :)

Katniss's avatar

@Dutchess_III WHY would you not wear those?? lol

Dutchess_III's avatar

No place to wear them.

Seek's avatar

Then wear then with your jim jams on your next trip to the convenience store.

Dutchess_III's avatar

LOL! I don’t have any jams!

Katniss's avatar

@Dutchess_III I’d wear them to Walmart if I had to. lol
Just so I could wear them.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I know…they are so very cool. I tried putting them with an outfit a while back. Problem was, I knew I was going to a sports bar to meet a bunch of HS class mates (class of 76) and the bar had a pool table and a foosball table and therefore I’d have my shoes off about 50% of the time. And it’s not like you can just slip them back on. It’s like…tying up a corset. But they are so awesome. Mebee I should ship them to you?

Seek's avatar

what’s your size?

Dutchess_III's avatar

:) 7, I think. I’ll check when I get a minute!
