Shoe Do You Think He Is?

So it worked for Cinderella…..she found the perfect fit, both boy-wise and shoe-wise. So how come it’s taking your Prince Charming so long to bring that glass slipper? Well ladies, stop fretting and start searching! Yup, that’s right – no more having to search through endless pairs of unsuitable, incompatible and quite frankly sleazy boys. Let’s face it, if there’s one thing us girls know about its shoes, so put that knowledge to use and start looking at your man’s feet!  


So he wears smart shoes…

He’s turned up to a date in a pair of impeccably polished shoes that you could eat your dinner off. Okay, they are a little over the top, but since when did OTT ever register with men?  You’re dating Mr. Serious. It sounds daunting, but don’t be too keen to take off this pair of shoes. He has clearly put a lot of thought into planning his outfit this evening, which shows he thinks ahead. In short, not only does he have a brain, he actually uses it! Secondly, the fact he has made the effort to polish them means he is here on a mission, and that is to impress you! Granted it’s a little dressy for Nando’s, but with such good organisational skills at least he’ll never be late to pick you up!


So he wears the same pair of shoes…ALL the time…

You meet for coffee and, as always, he is wearing the SAME pair of shoes (despite the fact you bought him a new pair for his birthday and Christmas!) Don’t be too hasty to judge this guy as boring; in fact deep down he’s quite the opposite. True, Mr Dependable is predictable, but he is a constant, and perfect if you’re looking for someone a little more serious. He’s already proved that once he’s with someone he’s committed to them. I mean he wasn’t tempted by the two pairs of shoes you bought him was he? No, he stayed faithful to the same worn, scabby shoes he’s been wearing since you first met! Quite frankly he’s a catch- loyal, dependable and like a pair of old shoes – comfy! 


So he wears sleazy shoes…

When I say sleazy, I mean deceivingly sleazy! At the very first glance, his shoes look like genuine Italian leather, but after a few weeks you can really smell the ‘cheap, plastic leather’ and discover that you’re actually dating a pair of shoes that are in fact from the fake goods market. From the minute you spotted his shoes they screamed stylish, rich and handsome – I mean what more could you want? After a few weeks however, just like your relationship, these cheap shoes literally fall apart in the rain! Yeah, he’s fun to begin with and no-one can blame a girl for having a good time, but if you’re looking for someone a little more serious then you’d better ditch Mr Casual. Mr Casual – just like his shoes – is unreliable yet unbelievably charming. If you don’t want shoes that let water in though, it’s best to take them off and save yourself the heartache now! 


So he wears…flip flops…

When you think of the kind of guy that lives and dies in flip-flops, surfer dude usually springs to mind! And like surfer suggests, this guy is care free and all about adventure! He is spontaneous and lives for the moment – whether that be diving out of a plane or living dangerously (by dangerously we mean he starts an essay three hours before it’s due!) True, he’s not the most reliable type but he’s got a good heart, and you will never be bored with him! He wears open-toed shoes, which means he is pretty open to trying anything! Take a chance on Mr Spontaneous and enjoy the adventure, what’s the worst that could happen?


So he wears…clumpy ‘old man shoes’…

Don’t be so quick to judge! Has it ever occurred to you why he is wearing those hideous shoes? Yup -unfortunately his mother still buys his shoes for him. She obviously wants to make sure he is left on the shoe rack, which means he is probably a treasure waiting to be discovered and polished! So what are you waiting for?! His mother still buys his shoes for him; of course it’s up to you to make the first move. So what if you’re manlier than him – the Suffragettes didn’t fight for nothing! Think of this as your chance to be a modern Hilary Clinton – after all behind every great man is an even greater woman. With a little bit of tender loving care he could blossom into the hunk his mother was hoping he’d never become!  Mr Innocent ticks all the boxes- he just doesn’t realise he does.


So he wears…dirty shoes with holes in them…

So he has either spent the whole of his student loan partying hard or he just makes no effort. AT ALL. Let’s face it – if he can’t be bothered to replace those shabby, holey shoes then he isn’t going to make an effort with you. He is nice enough, but he wants a ‘convenient relationship.’ What I’m getting at here is if he can’t even be bothered to buy new shoes, then you shouldn’t expect too much from him. He lacks motivation and always settles for ‘ok’, Mr Lazy won’t be replacing those shoes until their soles fall off. But at least he is honest and doesn’t try to hide the fact that he just doesn’t care!


So he wears…no shoes…he prefers slippers…

Mr Snuggles is your typical ‘2.4 children’ guy! He is happy to settle down and saunter through life! He is a perfect fit for you if Coronation Street is your thing! He is utterly adorable and every mother-in-laws dream! However, if you’re not ready for life in the slow lane just yet I suggest you over- take him and put your foot down.
