    Thank goodness you're with Mrs. Oberon.

    I'd have to string you up by your feet if you did that around me.

    I guess it beats the pictures guys usually send me unsolicited from OKC.
    Feet are a step up.

    Wait! Did you say "myth?"

    Probably too dangerous, though.

    How dare you speak such nonsense Jennifer! You know damn well shoes was your deciding factor.
    If you're wearing white shoes in that picture, then, you are SOOOO hosed.

    I agree here too. If I'm going someplace for real and not just being casual then I'll switch to "real" shoes. These are great for casual wearing though.

    You also have to consider age. lol, everyone my age (20ish) thinks that these are awesome (sometimes they think they are a bit odd) when they see me in them; male and female. But then again I do basically live in the gay center of the east, everyone here is really open minded and there are a ton of people who wear crazier things.

    To answer the thread for real though, I think that whether you are judged by your shoes really varies person to person; and on the environment you're in.

    I have two pair of shoes. One I never wear, because it hurts my feet.

    The other:



    Although I am mostly in matching outfit, I have also been seen wearing them together with shorts and shirts. Because I don't wear shoes to look good. I wear shoes I enjoy walking in.

    And the fact remains, once you walk in Van Bommels, you never walk in anything else anymore.

    If you had some chick show up to a charity carwash wearing a cocktail dress and high heels, you might make some judgements about her possible 1) need for attention 2) lack of awareness 3) lack of attention to details. That's all I'm saying. This is the same thing. Someone dressed in a tie-dyed shirt and a hillbilly beard looks great on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin and fits in well with the people there. Take the same outfit and go to an office with a formal dress code and it doesn't work as well.

    There is also something to be said about the fact that people who don't dress 'appropiately' to the standards of society and wear it proudly, have a stronger personal statement and a charisma that is more true to themselves then some random pencil-licking smooth-talker lacking any personal identity.

    Perceptual charisma is not always real charisma.

    That's possible. Although in most of the cases I've noted of people dressing outrageously, it has more to do with them hoping that their clothes will create a persona, rather than actually BEING that person themselves. You are correct though that the reasons for dressing out of the ordinary would influence how the other person might feel about them do so.

    Dress codes can go fuck themselves though. It's a personal reminder of society's games and peoples façades that bother me so.

    I can understand people being attracted to how other people dress (or not), but to read anymore into that....unless a girl goes to the charity with her boobs showing I don't see a problem.

    If there was a clear of patten for need for attention though, I'd be quick to spot that, but it wouldn't be a dress code thing really. As for lacking awareness or attention to details...those aren't necessarily problems unless they actually concern the relationship.

    What matters more than the shoe itself is the reasoning behind that particular shoe, which, as much as people would like to believe they are masters of intuition, you can't tell just by looking at it.

    Exactly, you said what was on my mind perfectly.
