    If etiquette at the particular gym dictates the use of some sort of shower shoe the trendy man will wear some cheap rubber flip-flops and feel shameful for doing it.

    I don't get the shoe thing. I hate shoes...don't like anything on my feet.

    I like perfumes and jewelry much, much better. I also like dressing other people rather than myself. My sister used to force me at wallet-point to get new shoes because they would literally be falling off my feet. I'm hoping that she will do when she comes to visit me out here!

    I don't enjoy shoe shopping at all, because I'm usually looking for something like this:


    when the stores are full of this:


    Granted, clothes shopping is not much better, and not because things don't fit. Styles are just silly.

    Are you kidding? Who tells you that, and why do you listen? If I had to keep the assortment of shoes you listed, I'd land in the asylum. I have shoes for work (top image above), a dressier set for church (where I usually change to organ shoes anyway), sneakers for exercising, hiking shoes, old sneakers for yard work, and sandals.

    Is there standard operating procedure for women?
    There is for this woman:

    Black shoes and socks, always; to match gray and black pants, or black suit, or dresses/skirts that are primarily in these colors. No brown in wardrobe at all, except for sports/hiking wear.

    No one tells me, but I absorb it from pop culture and from my peers. Mostly I listen because it's fun. With trends, I always take the ones I like and leave the rest, when it comes to jewelry, makeup, clothes, hair, etc. It would be different if I didn't like clothes, or shopping. But I do. I think fashion is interesting and I like bargain-hunting.

    Yea, this is pretty much what I have. And even that feels like a lot. I don't like to buy things without a purpose. And I can't convince myself that more than that is necessary.

    Women are so cray.

    This is the only shoe you need, good for all occasions. Casual, gym, formals, clubbing, baby showers, square dancing:
