What Your Shoes Say About You

What Your Shoes Say About You

There are many defining characteristics of a person--their personality, their height, where they plan to die one day. But one small feature about yourself says more about you than you might expect, and that is your shoes. To find out just what they had to say, I sat down with some local shoes and asked them what they really thought of their owners.

New Balance Sneakers.

Jerry's feet are soft. But not in a good way. They're soft in a way that reminds me of a rotten peach. I really wish he would forget about me, like I've forgotten about him."


“Every owner I've had smells like what I expect Ezra Koenig to smell like. It's a very calculated and pleasant weird."

Rainbow Flip Flops.

“Please help. I was never designed to be walked on. Every time the human steps, I let out a loud *clap* to let the world know of my imprisonment. As of yet no one has come to rescue."

Running Shoes With The Toes.

“Bill was a good runner in high school, or so I've heard. Broke 4:30 in the mile apparently. Obviously he's gotten weird about it now though. I should not exist."

High Heels.

“I belong to the black-haired, cheer captain Taylor Swift. I don't really like how I'm portrayed in the song at all really. And if I'm being completely frank, I never much liked the sneakers in the bleachers."

Sneakers in the bleachers.

"Taylor's nice. A little...it's hard to describe. Voyeuristic? Is that the word? Like I agree he's cute and all, but there's a limit to how deeply you can stare at a man in his bedroom while he talks on the phone to his girlfriend."


*muffled screaming*


“You wanna see my dinosaur toy? Dinosaurs are awesome. You wanna know which is my favorite dinosaur? You wanna? Huh? I bet you can't guess. I bet you five billion dollars you can't guess. It's a Triceratops. That one's my favorite."


“Julia has had a rough year. Lost her job and such. It's too bad, cause you know, she's a nice girl. It's ironic, I want for her to get back on her feet, and her and I both know that the first step to that is getting her feet out of me."

Paper towel with a string tied to the top.

“It's cruel enough that I exist, but did you have to move to Phoenix too, John? Your feet sweat like your aunt when she talks to telemarketers."

Ice Skates.

“I was born with a mutation that led to a giant blade sticking out of my torso. I cannot balance naturally or stay upright on my own. My owner, Stephanie, tortures me by rubbing me against cold, cold ice. All I wish to ask is, why? Why, humans?"


“If I had five cents for every time Nathan has spilled beer on me, I'd be almost as rich as he is."


“Hailey's feet cold. She put in me. Me hugg. Make warm. Ugg."

Shower shoes.

“Ya'll can never truly know what I been through...I smile now, sure. Present myself as a nice, well-groomed sorta guy. But you don't truly know the hell I been through. You don't know what I seen."

Adidas Yeezy Boots.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
