What Your Shoes Say about You?

From a young age we’re told that our inner qualities matter more than the clothes we wear — but did you know that your shoes can actually speak volumes about your personality to strangers? Shoes serve a practical purpose, and they are kind of non-verbal clues with symbolic messages. Even if you aren’t into these kinds of things, sometimes shoes and their color, shape, style can say much more about the person than they actually want to reveal. Take a look at what the shoes of people say about them.


1 Vans

This says that you might skateboard, but you probably don’t. Maybe you were enchanted with the idea until you realized how painful it is to fall off, so you kept the Vans because they ooze with urban style. Vans are a versatile shoe that goes well with both shorts and pants. They embody the essence of Simps casual and can be worn to the beach or the club. Vans also carry a bit of a guy vibe.

2 Colorful Sneakers

They give the information that the person wearing them is emotionally stable and is less prone to attachment anxiety (fear of separation from loved ones, dependency). You might expect people with colorful sneakers to be more extroverted, but that’s not necessarily so, the researchers found. Fun-looking shoes do not mean a fun personality.

3 High Tops

Standoffish, introverted, agreeable, conscientious, according to the study. Huffington Post Style says they signal “A kid at heart who doesn’t take himself too seriously”. Do you agree with this?

4 High-Fashion

The first impression usually is that the person who wears expensive shoes has high-income. People with brand-new, well-kept shoes tend to be worried about relationships and may be prone to attachment anxiety. Wearers tend to worry more about appearance and what others think of them.

5 Biker boots

They are trendy this season, but the real meaning behind these shoes is that the one who wears them is reserved, egocentric, doesn’t trust people and has a preference to do things all by himself. Though they are tough, but are smart and sensitive as well. A study shows that ankle boots tend to be worn by aggressive people.

6 Driving Moccasins

This guy knows style, but he might be a little high-maintenance. Those baby-smooth leather and suede shoes do require much upkeep and care, after all.

7 Loafers & Oxford

Yes, this style is versatile and timeless, and it was usually associated with college students. If you love loafers and Oxford shoes, you are creative and sometimes you prefer doing everything by yourself. When it comes to shoes like these, something else that also makes them stand out is the socks that people choose to wear. As there are options to customize your own fun socks, there are even more choices when it comes to adding something extra to the outfit when wearing loafers or Oxford shoes.

8 Flat shoes

These timeless, girly and comfortable shoes can be found in almost every girl’s closet. If you are a flats-lover, you are productive and outspoken. For you, style is as important as comfort. The flats can be worn with both day and night outfits and can still look good with both.

9 Stilettos

This type of heels makes women’s legs look more toned and makes them look taller. So besides the practical reasons, these shoes are among the favorites because they can be worn with literally everything and make you look gorgeous. People who love to wear stilettos are confident and have a great taste in fashion. They always love being the center of attention and are not afraid to show off.

10 Converse

Chuck Taylor shoes make everyone look cool, calm and comfortable without actually feeling any of those things. There is absolutely no support to this shoe. It’s a wonder how every ball player until the ’70s didn’t snap their ankle the second they stepped on the court. Today, they are the synonym for the urban life and street style.

11 Timberlands

These shoes might be intended for hiking and for mountain life, but chances are, that the one who wears them hasn’t hit the trail in a while. More likely, he’s a not-so-rough guy, but is just trying to look tough.

12 White shoes

The person who wears them probably has absolutely no sense of style whatsoever. It’s not that we judge anyone, but it is a common rule that white shoes for men, or white boots for women are the worst possible decision for any outfit and should be avoided by any means.
