Should Men Care About Wearing Stylish Shoes?

Feb 28, 2008
While women like a man who has a sense of style, the actual expression of style differs from culture to culture, but the concept of being 'stylish' remains the same.

An important point to begin with is: You don't have to wear the most expensive labels to be stylish.

However, I do recommend that you browse magazines based on the social scenes that you want to be successful in. For example:

- If you want to fit into the 'high fashion' social scene, then check out mags that have models wearing those clothes.

- If you want to fit into the grungy/alternative scene, then check out mags that have models wearing those clothes.

If you can't afford the labels that the models are wearing, get cheaper versions as long as they don't look cheap.

Another way to find out what male fashion women find attractive is to ask them. Doing so can be a great way to start an interaction with a group of women. While you're getting free fashion advice, you'll also be getting experience at vibing with groups of girls:

"Hey guys, I'm updating my wardrobe and want to find out what the hottest male fashions are at the moment. Have a look around...who do you think the best-dressed guys are in here?"

This is often a great opportunity to be playfully cocky with the women by busting on their preferences. Doing so will attract and interest women to you:

"Whoa, you have funny taste! Should I really be taking advice from you? Hmmm... ok, how about your friend here? Can you point out something better?" She points something out and you say, "Wow, you have awesome taste and style, I should take you shopping with me all the time...you can be my new stylist."

Shoes: Girls notice a guy's shoes. I've spoken to several attractive women who've told me similar stories about guys that they liked at first glance, but then couldn't push themselves into approaching or dating because of his shoes.

Check out the male fashion magazines and stop wearing the styles of shoes your mum bought you for school.

Great shoes will be an advantage even if you want to go for the grungy/alternative look. Women aren't going to say, "Gee, his shoes are good, so I'm not attracted to him" but, they might say, "He seems cool, but check out the crappy shoes...what a mummy's boy."

The moral of the shoe story? Give yourself the best opportunity at all times by wearing cool shoes. I have several pairs of shoes that go with pretty much everything I wear:

1. Stylish black boots: Go with black jeans, trousers.
2. Stylish tanned colour boots: Go with light blue jeans.
3. Stylish dark brown boots: Go with dark blue jeans and some dark trousers.
4. White designer sneakers: Go with any kind of jean or sweat pant.
5. Thongs: Go with any kind of jean or sweat pant, plus shorts.

Next, let's look at wearing Colognes/Aftershave: We all love a good scent.

If you have no female friends to ask, go to a few aftershave stores and ask what the most popular men's aftershaves are. Or, simply approach a random woman in the store and say, "Hey, I'm looking for a sexy aftershave...what's your favorite men's aftershave?"

Get into a conversation with her about it, asking her to describe her favorite and then ask her to help you pick one out.

How to wear aftershave: One spray of aftershave on either side of your neck and one just below your throat 30 minutes before going out is plenty. There are few things women hate more than a guy who smells like he has bathed in his cologne.

Your scent should be subtle and allow a woman to get a hint of it. She will need to get closer if she wishes to smell it again.

Consider this: If she doesn't like the scent of your cologne and you have put too much on, it can be the difference between success and her walking away.

Aim to get your sense of style and fashion under control and it makes meeting, attracting and dating women just that extra bit easier.
