Thoughts upon wearing the right pair of shoes

Well, I have a job interview today and although I searched high and low, I could not find my usual pair of staid, black lace up shoes that I typically pair with my black pants when I’m trying to look “formal.” Although I felt myself in a slight panic, I grabbed my other, more casual – oh let me be honest – they are black, leather tennis shoes that are supposed to be “trendy” with some cream colored laces and some piping. They don’t look terrible, though they have terrible traction and I think my black pants are long enough to cover anything that screams that I don’t really have any fashion sense.

Luckily, when I got to work this morning, I realized that not only do I have a pair of black flats hiding under my desk (terribly uncomfortable, only hauled out when clients come), but I have a very safe pair of black loafers that I keep intending to throw out (I paid two dollars for them more than five years ago – the lining is gone, they tend to smell when worn for more than three hours at a pop).

It will be a good day indeed.

  1. Despite being a guy, I have a ton of shoes. First off, I am too lazy to wash my shoes off if I step in mud, so there needs to be a couple days for the mud to dry and fall off by itself. Second, I think my feet tend to sweat more now that I am older, so I rotate through shoes every other day. Third, you need a different pair of shoes for every type of activity. I have walking shoes, 3 pairs of work dress shoes, running shoes, Shoes for jeans… too many complications in life. But I am just glad I don’t have wooden clogs. That would suck.

  2. When it all comes down to reality the most important thing about your shoes is how they make you feel. Most interviewers are more focused on you than your wardrobe – unless you dress bizarre. 🙂
