There is a saying that you can tell a lot about a person based on their shoes. Shoes have a variety of personalities. Heels can be classy, and sometimes trashy. Vans or canvas shoes are simple, and are perfect for jeans or leggings. Then there are dress shoes, which are used mainly for special occasions. However, if you are anything like my boyfriend when it comes to shoes, you will not be caught dead wearing dress shoes, and I am okay with this.
Dress shoes are not for everyone, especially mens' dress shoes. They are bulky, uncomfortable, and quite frankly, not the most attractive looking foot wear you can buy. No matter what, my boyfriend just does not own any dress shoes nor will he ever wear them.
He has his own sense of style, and I admire that the most. When I said you can tell a lot about a person based on the shoes they wear, it really is true. See, since my boyfriend doesn't wear dress shoes I can tell that he values comfort over fitting in. I can also tell that he is capable of taking care of things well based on how he takes care of his shoes.
It's not only about shoes, it's about everything matching his shoes as well. He loves his outfits to match, and that is so rare to find in some guys. They usually throw on their black and white Nikes and call it good. But he wants his socks, pants, shirts, and shoes to all match and that is just impressive.
I really don't care what people have to say when they talk about how my boyfriend doesn't wear dress shoes. Dress shoes don't tell someone if they are a bad or good person, neither does not wearing them. It's all about how you wear shoes, that is where the personality comes from. I have learned to accept that I will never force my boyfriend to wear dress shoes, because I think the shoes he wears look so much nicer anyway. He matches his suits with them, and they look just as professional as wearing dress shoes, but somehow better.
