According to researchers from the University of Kansas and Wellesley College it is possible to tell a lot about someone from their footwear. But I believe you didn’t need a study to tell you that the shoes you choose to wear, same as your clothes, communicate something about your personality.

The authors of the study found that people could correctly guess a stranger’s age, gender and income by looking at their shoes.So what does your choice of shoes say about?

Loafers are for the cool guys. Those who understand what smart casual means.


This is a difficult group to decipher going with the fact there are various kinds of boots.
