First impressions are not always correct. However, you can make educated guesses about a man's personality by the shoes he wears. Though women might wish differently, not all men think about the entirety of their outfits. One thing they do care about, however, is their shoes; even the most laid-back man is concerned about his shoes, though it may be for comfort rather than style reasons. In this case, first impressions do count. Judge a man by his shoes to find out if he's the right one for you.
How clean does he keep his shoes? A man's shoes get more frequent wear than other pieces of his wardrobe. How he takes care of his shoes says a lot about him. If his shoes are clean he must take care of them. Chances are, he will take good care of you as well. If his shoes look abused and dirty, steer clear of this man.
He wears Converses. This guy is probably sweet, and high-maintenance enough to make sure his outfit matches, but not too high-maintenance for you. He cares a great deal about being comfortable, and would rather spend his days listening to music and watching his favorite movies. This doesn't mean he isn't trendy. The Converse-wearer is probably into alternative bands, and current fads are on his radar.
He wears reef sandals. This guy loves the beach and enjoys the sportier aspect of beach life. He is likely to be a surfer. He's very comfortable in his own skin, and he's perfectly comfortable walking around in sandals. Look forward to a fun time with this man.
He wears Air Jordans (or other expensive athletic shoes). This man probably sets his schedule around basketball playoff games. In his spare time, he calls up his friends for a game of basketball, followed by a round of beers and Sports Center. He's a man's man, which means he'll appreciate his own space when it comes to game nights and the television. That he's able to spend so much money on athletic shoes probably means he financially able to spoil you once in a while.
He wears boat shoes. This man has an appreciation for the finer things in life. He'll appreciate an outfit you've carefully put together, and will notice your new haircut without your prompting. Though stylish, he is not overly high maintenance. Boat shoes are quality shoes for lounging. He still appreciates relaxing moments and casual days. He won't mind if you suggest a Saturday at the MoMA. In fact, he will probably plan the day with you.
