The difference between men and women is that men buy shoes because they have to, while women buy shoes because they like to. The average woman has more shoes than there are days in week. Given the amount a torture a pair of shoes have to withstand, worn out or uncared for shoes is the most common taboo amongst men. Filthy or damaged shoes automatically cancels out any dressing effort made on rest of the body as it’s the last thing someone will remember. It’s as bad as dirty teeth or hair that’s not combed, and gives a poor impression on one’s lifestyle.
A new pair of shoes makes us walk gracefully as the Queen of England as we walk carefully in order not to trash the precious things our feet are wearing. Like a set of new rims on a car, an addition to the shoes we already own can be very uplifting for our appearance.
