    If I see a man who is in his later 30-50s all decked out in gangsta wear and he lives far away from any major urban centre and has never met a gangster in his life, I would have a hard time taking him seriously. It's not age appropriate, nor is he part of the group he is trying to emulate. Shoes are only one part of that.

    I think Jennifer is right though that the biggest factor in my judgement of shoes is where they are worn. Even if you do legitimately dress to reflect a certain subculture, there are some occasions or some workplaces with a different subculture dress code which ought to be observed or it indicates a lack of awareness that could extend into other areas of a potential relationship as well.

    So it's partially true then... if your SO is wearing a shoe that you might deem inappropriate for the occasion... would you correct him?

    I mean, if I like a guy enough, I'll buy him a pair of damned shoes. What do shoes have to do with anything?
    (Well, unless he's wearing 6" shiny red leather F-Me pumps.)
    now you're just discriminating... what's wrong if I wanted to wear some 6" shiny red leather F-me pumps.

    Hot. They're not jesus-sandals, you see.

    Joking aside, I've yet to meet someone who pays special attention to what kind of shoes a man wears. But if we're talking clothing in general, you can wear anything you like, as long as it's clean.

    Except for togas. Togas freak me out.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    How about if I sported this shoe Fidelia? Everywhere we went... would that be cool.

    I'm probably screwed if they do, since I wear these-

    Yes, it is. And it spreads through the web like a plague. Lots of sites about coaching, which make people believe they can become HR Managers by just reading them. And they are so happy to find them, that they go and tell their friends and family about their "discoveries" or all they have learnt about life by suscribing to their newsletter. Male shoes included.

    I notice the things guys choose to wear, including shoes, which goes into forming an impression of how they choose to appear, which does strongly hint towards personality, I think, despite the inevitable exceptions.

    I wouldn't rank shoes higher than any other item of clothing in forming an impression, unless they're those ridiculous pointed men's shoes, or something really strange, or out of place for the situation, or otherwise socially inappropriate.

    edit: general style category (skate shoes vs running shoes vs dress shoes vs sandals, etc) and colour would be mostly what I would notice, along with how well they fit the situation and the clothes being worn with them. Not so much the brand.
