    I don't think it's a myth. I've heard a lot of women talk about it too. I don't think I'm very specific, but it's a factor, just as the rest of their appearance is.

    All I know for certain is that my Campers get a lot of compliments, and are very comfortable.

There are women on What Not To Wear that just look like they've totally given up caring about their appearance or who have a weird perception of themselves and what their clothes say about their personality (clothes should reflect personality, not create it). I don't think all men are exempt from this either, although the variety and nature of women's clothing makes it easier for them to fall into this trap.

    I wouldn't write someone off solely based on that, but it would contribute to the total picture I had of him.
    No socks with sandals is a given for me... that ain't gangsta. .. So what is the thought process of women when making an evaluation like this?

    Urban myth.

    It comes from the job interviews´ processes, in which, for male candidates, HR employees (according to themselves, of course) can tell how a man faces his responsibilities according to how he keeps his shoes. Not by the type of shoes he´s wearing. A former HR boss explained this to me, as he asked me to help him interviewing candidates.

    Now that HR related disciplines such as "coaching" became a fashion, it is not unusual to hear women saying this.

    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    I think some women who focus more on superficial aspects might, but I don't think it's a pressing issue. The same women who indulge in stockpiles of cosmetics and obsessively check their pocket mirrors, as if their faces change like the tides of the sea, are probably more likely to be concerned about what shoes you wear.

    I've hardly known any women who were completely oblivious about these things, so they generally have a better radar for fashion than I do.

    Of course, there's the issue of women evaluating men by what size they wear.... but that's a different can of worms.

    For me, it depends on where he's wearing the shoe.

    Interesting... I can see this... so is this where it stemmed from? Because I have heard females speak very strongly about a males choice of shoes...
