What Do Your Shoes Say About You?

big shoes

One of my favorite shopping Web sites is Forzieri, home of fine Italian goods.

In this month’s newsletter, the editors of Forzieri have this to say about you and your footwear:

Pointed-toe shoes: symbolize the desire to dominate. They elongate the form of the foot for a look that commands attention.

Round-toe shoes: indicate sweetness and the willingness to help others.

Open sandals: – the more revealing, the more confident that person is, maybe even a bit of a show-off.

Boots: worn by those who are slightly more reserved, traditionalists or goal setters always planning for the future.

Sneakers: appeal to the Peter Pan in all of us, the ideal symbol of adolescence, never wanting to grow up.

Is It Possible To Have Too Many Shoes?

Not if you keep them organized.

I finally sorted through my shoe collection. It doesn’t look anything like a celebrity closet. But I had heels and flats and sandals and boots strewn all over my bedroom.

Fortunately, I don’t throw anything away–ever. So, I put all of the shoes back in their original boxes. But first I took polaroids of the shoes and glued the photos to the outside of the boxes. This way I can see at a glance what each box contains. I read this tip in a magazine years ago and have never forgotten it.

How do you keep your shoes orgazined?
