    Default your shoes

    I've heard you can tell a person's personality by looking at their footwear. So what kind of shoes do you prefer?
    Do you care for them (leather)? Are they expensive?
    Does your social circle or work environment expect you to wear a certain kind or quality?
    How long do you wear them?

    Im pretty ungirly with shoes. I like comfy loafers for work and they can be hard to find in a department filled with heels. I also have knockoff doc marten boots that I like but that's about as fancy as I get for daily wear. Once in awhile on an evening out with friends I'll wear heels and just in the last few years that's become comfortable enough, but its kinda notable lol. Oh, I hate sandals though. So awkward. Fuck a flip flop.

    I don't like shoe shopping. I usually just get them at Walmart when I have to. They have to fit and be comfortable enough and be colorful but not gaudy. Buckles are ugly and anything that goes between toes (glaring at you, flip-flops) is unacceptable. Also the shoelaces that usually come with the shoes are lame and don't function as well as shoelaces should. So I make my own. And I would be glad to make some for anyone who desires some.
    I actually have a picture from last year of my shoes:

    I don't care for my shoes, even if they're leather. I just wear the until they wear out then I get new ones. I recently had to get a new pair to replace the ones in the upper-left of the picture because the sole had worn away entirely in spots under the ball of the foot. The tops of the shoes still looked fine.

    Black leather lace ups, smooth or cap toe, Mephisto brand, about $450-550, keep them polished and don't use them for waders and they will last years. Very comfortable and have very thin leather. I can sprint in these shoes.

    I bought them for work but women seem to like them.

    I just checked their site and they don't make the exact shoes I have anymore. Maybe next year.

    I want shoes that are comfortable and last while still being cheap...which means they don't last and aren't that comfortable...*sigh*.
    Because of an inflamed nerve bundle on the bottom of my foot, I've had to switch over to wide toe-box t-shoes to give my toes wiggle room. They are definitely more comfortable, and waaaay too expensive ($100 on sale). But I can't go back to tight toe shoes so I hope these last. For around the house wear, I've got a pair of those garden clogs. Easy on, easy off, roomy, breathable. But I won't wear them out and about, and they're uncomfy for my walks.

    When I was younger, and thinner, I loved wearing my knee high high-heeled boots. Actually, boots of some kind were fairly normal. In high school it was well worn cowboy boots that had been resoled a few times. Then I got some black somewhat dressy, 2" heel boots that I always wore..went with almost everything. And before I got my new wide toe-box t-shoes I was wearing a pair of black leather harley davidson boots, again with about a 2" heel.

    I've tried sandals of all kinds, but they've never been comfortable...either not quite fitting right, or rubbing my feet into blisters. I even tried making my own.

    I do still have some pretty heels that I adore, mostly on the cute side and very heely. These were for the rare instances that I'd go out to socialize. I've gotten rid of most of them (my hubby liked buying them for me), but haven't been able to let go of the cuter ones. I may have only worn each a handful of times, but when we pull them out of the box I can't help but go "wheeee!!!" cuz they're just too cute. I'll likely never wear them again, though, even if this inflamed nerve healed up.

    I'd say that as you get older, comfort takes a higher priority (unless you're fighting the aging process and/or are image oriented).

    I like mostly low heeled boots, prefer wedges or under 2 inches, and tennis shoes.
     


    These are the main shoes I wear. The top right boots are Yippe Ki Yay Old Gringos. I think they cost around 250$ but my mom got them discount because she owned a western store for a time. She gave them to me for a present and Ive worn the hell out of them. The next ones are Stetsons and my mom also gave them to me for a present. Iíve worn them a lot too. The Sorel boots my husband gave me for Christmas one year a few years ago. I wear those a lot. The shoes next to them I donít wear. much but they go good with skinny jeans sometimes. I got them extremely on sale. The under armour shoes I bought for myself last winter because my old tennis shoes looked like hell. The pink crocs (lol) I bought like 12 years ago and I have no idea why I bought pink but it was a terrible mistake. I wear them around the house with my socks all the time. I wouldnít wear them out of the house except to take my kids to school occasionally and hope to god I donít get a flat tire and people see what ridiculous outfits I wear in my own home (lol). I need to invest in another pair, like a brown pair or smth. The sandals I bought this summer. I wear them when tennis shoes donít work with something, but I donít wear them that often because they arent very comfortable. The last white adidas tennis shoes my husband bought me. I didnít really like the way they looked at first, but I tried them on and they were extremely comfortable, so Iíve been living in them practically all summer.

    Leather ankle-high flat boots, or flat leather sandals, depending on the season. I care only that they are a versatile color and will last a while, because I walk everywhere, and I most of all donít want to have to think about think about them again until they are inevitably worn out.

    They arenít cheap enough that Iíd wear through them in a couple months, but I also wouldnít ever go for shoes over $200. Donít even know how to keep them polished - just canít care.

    TOM's, I have like 10 pairs of toms. They're super comfortable and don't wear out easily. Plus I like giving back to the world as I buy. I don't wear leather, being vegetarian, so I look for canvas, rubber, fake leather (though one could argue this is advertising for leather, but I like the materials it's made of), denim, anything lightweight and modern. Older styles tend to utilize lots of leather so that's a no-go for me. I have Nikes and also some shoes from Old Navy that I really like (quality isn't as good, but they look too cute to ignore).

    My dad has bright pink crocs too. He wears them ironically I think.

    I wear my oxblood Doc Martens when I can, which is only a small portion of the year due to the heat. I also wear all black high-top Converse at the moment. I was never one to clean my shoes, but I guess you're supposed to do that... wearing black just seems easier and matches a majority of things. I probably mostly wear sandals because they are easy to put on and due to the hot environment in which I live. Though I'm starting to get freaked out at night walking my dog in sandals as there are weird creepy crawlies out there. I have some sandals that are sparkly, shiny and such.

    Classic black combat boots (winter & autumn)
    Timberland GORE-TEX hiking boots (If I'm out in nature or the garden)
    Chucks or Adidas classics (summer for the city tym)

    e_e and I'll wear my Oxford dress shoes if I have to.. or at gun point if I'm forced to. Otherwise they just gather dust in the closet.

    In total I never have more than 5 pairs of shoes and per season I only use 2 pairs (to avoid stink-feet). Once a pair gets totally scuffed, I just replace it.

    I have 3 pairs of footwear near my front door atm:
    1) The one I use most nowadays is a pair of unisex black and white ASICS running shoes. I got my foot dimensions scanned in the store so these ones are perfectly fitted for my feet.

    2) A pair of cheap cloth black flats. The right shoe has a small hole in the front but I haven’t had time to find a new pair. I put black tape over it for a time which came off. I have very long, narrow feet, so it’s hard to find shoes that are cheap, fit me, and look good, especially in most places outside of North America.
    3) A pair of black high heels, medium-thick heel thickness and medium height. They are a standard uniform size for office work in my country.

    When I was a teenager I worked at a sports clothes and footwear store over one summer. I remember I learned to quickly “VI” people that way, through noting their appearances and then checking through talking with them about their lifestyle and hobbies.

    I have the same style of pumas I've worn for the past 12 years. They are 50 bucksish. I don't like spending money and once I've got my mind made up on what I like, I stick with it unless a lot of cognitive dissonance builds up.

    I don't take care of them and once they wear out, I just get a new pair.

    btw this last year ive discovered how kickass shoemakers/repairers are, I gave him 3 pair of super old shoes, one boots pair that was all scratched, one leather sneakers that has always felt too tight and one ankle boots which soles were ripping off... and with total 40 euros this man repaired all of them

    honestly im very affectioned to my shoes because it takes me a year for my feet to stop hurting when i get a new pair and i have to go through bubbles and pain and that's why i barely purchase new shoes or when i do i just buy super top ones, leather, handmade, whatnot...

    shoeguy changed my life

    I have two shoes: a pair of dress shoes for formal events and a pair of athletic shoes.

    I'm thrifty and don't replace shoes until they're really damaged — e.g. when the soles start to fall off and it becomes a health hazard to wear them. Even my pair of formal dress shoes have holes in them.

    I think I love these.

    I'm not much into buying clothes or shoes. And I do have all sorts of vastly different styles that ppl would prolly stereotype me on....but these ....ideal. versatile, flexible, solid, polished enough and rugged, and you feel barefoot in the best way. I think these are my favorites

    I normally go out in shoes similar to the 1st pair, though rather than the foam they have more foot support. Comfy and easy to slip on

    I had a pair of sanuk yoga mat wedge flip flops in brown that were my favorite, but they got torn up and they don’t make them in brown anymore. I like a little height because I’m a shorty, but not too much where you feel it, and most wedges seem blinged out for some reason and I’m not really into that.
