Have you read articles or ever watched trending videos about the 'top things that women notice first about men?'
Did what they say surprise you?
It’s not all about your looks as it relates to your general physical appearance, but about the finished LOOK that you pull together. There’s an important style detail that’s near the top of every list – your shoes.
It has been said, “A successful man will be judged by two things in life, his watch and his shoes.”
If you haven’t invested in a quality pair of leather shoes, now’s the time and yes, she will notice. Maybe you decide on an Allen Edmonds lace-up or a pair of Ferragamo loafers for business wear. On the other hand, there might just be the right pair of gently worn shoes in your closet that need just a little extra attention to look brand new. But a good pair of leather shoes can double for business or casual -- a special date with your partner or a stroll downtown on a warm summer’s evening is just the occasion to wear your new or revitalized shoes.
When you arrive at your destination – whether it be work or a casual gathering, you don’t want your shoes to be memorable for all the wrong reasons. If you are going to dress to impress, don’t overlook your shoes.
Remember, in lists of top things women notice about men, shoes and how clean they are rank in the top five!
