A woman is a treasure full of mystery; you should pay attention to the small details in order to unfold every page of her life. Moreover, the way a woman dresses telegraphs many messages about her according to relationship expert, April Masini.
Move over diamonds because shoes are a girl’s real best friend; if eyes reflect her heart, shoes echo her personality. Psychologists from the University of Kansan discovered that the style, value, colour and condition of footwear demonstrate the owner’s emotional, political and personality traits.
Here are some of the things your shoes imply about your persona:
1. Oxford Shoe
Identified by shoelace eyelet tabs that are attached under the vamp, this style was originally created for men but borrowed by women in the early nineteenth century.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are an artistic person. You are confident to show your true self. You are unconventional and do things the way you want to.
2. Rubber Shoes
Primarily designed for sports and other physical activities.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: According to psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, a woman wearing trainers is on the go and ready for action. You value health over fashion and being fit is your lifestyle. You are the type of person who will break the rules but your friends love you because you are always up for anything.
3. Ballet Flats
Originating from a woman’s soft ballet shoe, they have a very thin heel or none at all.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are a woman who puts comfort before style. You are down to earth but not afraid to display your femininity. You are a friendly and outgoing person. Like rubber shoes, you are very active and always on the go.
4. Kitten Heels
Shoes of approximately 1 to 2 inches in height, they have a slight curve setting the heel in from the back edge of the shoe.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are playful, fun and have a creative personality. You are an old soul who follows the conventional way of living.
Generally covering the foot and the ankle, boots are worn to protect the feet and legs from water, extreme cold, mud or hazards.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: If there’s one way to describe you, it’s laid-back. You go with the flow and see where life takes you. You are ready to take on whatever life throws at you.
6. Stiletto Heel
Christian Dior brought back this French shoe design after World War II. Shoe designer, Roger Vivier, who worked for Dior took credit for inventing the long, thin, high-heeled shoe adding his own je ne sais quoi to create a perfectly slender heel of incredible strength. Different fashions have seen men and women wearing this style but nowadays they are predominantly worn by women.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are bold, confident, dressy and sophisticated. By accentuating the length of your legs, this makes you look taller and gives you greater confidence. These sexy shoes imply that you are a girl who likes a little glamour in her life.
The wedge serves as both the sole and the heel of the shoe.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOU: This style shows that you are very chic and stylish. You are confident but down to earth. You are passionate about the things you love and no one can stop you from fulfilling your dreams.
