8 Different Mens' Shoes And What They Say About A Guy

You can tell a lot about a guy just by his shoes. There are many different types, shapes, sizes and colors; however, shoes don’t just tell you about a guy’s style. A guy’s shoes leave a footprint in the dirt and in our minds. Who is he? What is he like? What does he do? If you look down to the ground, you can probably guess if his name is Tucker or Phillip just based on his laces alone.

1. Checkered Vans With Calve Socks

He uses words like stoked and gnar and most likely grew up near a little place called Simi Valley. Catch him working the cash register at Pacsun.

2. Vibram FiveFingers Toe Shoes

No one asked him about his two-week hiking trip in Sedona, but he’ll tell you about it anyway. He only eats naturally cured meats and constantly complains that people don’t appreciate nature enough.

3. Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes

Doesn’t actually know how to sail, but his dad owns a boat. This guy’s closet is probably full of Vineyard Vines clothing, and if you bump into him at the bar, he may threaten to sue you with his family's lawyer.

4. Basketball shoes

Does he actually play basketball? Is he super sporty and athletic? Nope, just spends an absurd amount of money on sneakers and is the regional champion in Backyard Basketball Online.

5. Cowboy Boots

This guy either owns a horse and is an actual cowboy…or he just says y'all a lot and is actually from Ohio.

6. Timberlands

Check out this guy’s new rap on Soundcloud. He plans on being the next Drake and probably only wears Supreme.

7. White New Balance sneakers

This guy is either a dad or a nurse. There is no in-between. Bonus points if they have a phone holster on their belt, too.

8. Rainbow flip flops

He always smells like weed and plays guitar but the only song he knows is Wonderwall by Oasis. Rock on man, nobody likes you.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
