Shoe People

Stilettos, flats, wedges, tie-ups, sports shoes…I love em all! I suffer from a shoe fetish…I’m crazy about em! I guess it’s a girl thing…but there’s something extraordinary about shoes. I think the kind of shoes people wear, defines their personality. Whenever I meet someone new, my attention first goes to their feet. Believe me, I’m completely put off by someone without a decent shoe sense. Anyway, I was talking about shoe personalities. I’ve actually analyzed people by their shoes, and more often than not, my observations hit bull’s-eye!


For instance, my friend TS wears delicate, pretty kinda shoes… stilettos, or strappy things, or closed shoes that resemble a doll’s footwear! She’s a typical girl! Soft spoken, feminine and a romantic. Thinks more from her heart than her head.



Another friend of mine, AG, loves wearing sports shoes. Not too stylish, keeps it simple. Also, he’s more into greys and blacks. He’s a football freak and a geek!




Then there’s NA. She’s got a whole collection of shoes in the latest styles and variety of colours! She’s vivacious, fashion conscious and has a very vibrant nature.


Another classmate of mine, AB, wears floaters mostly. Anywhere he goes, he has them on. He’s laidback, easygoing, slightly shabby but quite adorable.





And of course, there’s Milo. The woman has a hoard of shoes! Mostly black and red, her shoes are flat or with a very tiny heel. And they’re simple but stylish and quite sexy! She’s a no-nonsense person but lets her hair down once in a while! Thinks from her head, but lets her heart lead in some cases…
I could go on about my ‘shoe- people’. My own shoes speak volumes about me! Which is why I’m so particular about how I dress up my feet! :P I love observing everybody but that doesn’t mean I let my assumptions stop me from talking to them. I just like to start on the right ‘foot’!

thnk god, i'm not a shoe fetish...atleast i dn't have to do so much of thinkin and can save all tht energy,elsewhere and also keep myself away from not thinkin so much about who's wearin wat,n wat personality do they have,but one thing is for sure,i do notice the polished part of it..pun intended,plez..

maybe,tht's bcos,i barely have a collection..leave aside the collection...i barely have 4-5 pairs of footwear...i hate shoppin,except for music and movie stuff,n somethin worth readable too!!!

by the way,miss shoe thinker personality,where do i fall in?

is it the dirty sneaker part?

TripleSix said...

one more thing...milo,a "no non sense person"...
r u kiddin me!!

she's like a kid,even though i look younger n shorter to her...

Mirage said...

@nika: oye ur shoe sense is improving gradually...if it weren't for us, u wudve been happily barefoot! Nomad! :P

And milo's a bit of both- sometimes as innocent as a kid, and sometimes as wise as a granny! ;)

TripleSix said...

Ok, this is how most of my comments on your blog usually begin...
Hey, it's been such a long time since I last read your blog. :)
Ok, so now that that's out of the way, I'd like to say that this is an amazing idea for a blog entry. Really, very interesting! I'd like to tag myself with it but it's not really gonna be much fun writing about ten people who just wear floaters practically ALL the time. :(
Anyway, it was fun reading this. So, how've you been? :)
