Shoes and style

“If you want to know the measure of a man look at the shoes he wears“

Aristotle Onassis

Onassis was a smart guy, one of the cleverest entrepreneurs ever to become a multi-millionaire.

Good suit, cheap shoes? It says that this man will probably not go the final mile. When a man tells you that he will not “pay good money for shoes, they’re not worth it” is telling you he is not worth it. A lot of men will not understand this, but the women they are trying to date will.

Good shoes clean and well polished say that at some level this man is disciplined and has a pride in his appearance. Like all such visual clues, it goes straight to our subconscious, becoming part of our initial assessment of a person. It may not be fair, but it is how the human psyche works.

You can either wear good shoes and amplify your style or wear bad shoes and detract from it. Bad shoes on good clothes stand out like a beacon, shouting I do not really care about how I look.

Good shoes put a man in touch with wealth and luxury. Buying a quality pair of English shoes is one of the cheapest ways to enter the world of craftsmanship and luxury. Cheap, because the price of good shoes is low compared to other luxury goods. Cheap, because good shoes are a great investment and with care will last a man many years.
