Shoes Maketh The Man, Or Woman.
This is probably an old saying but holds true nonetheless. Studies show that people do judge characters and personalities based on minimal appearance cues such as clothes, shoes, or choice of colors. A study by Omri Gillath
at the Department of Psychology, University of Kansas, investigated how precisely people can judge an unknown person’s character just by looking at photographs of their shoes. The study found that many of the participants were able to correctly guess the age, gender, income, and attachment anxiety just from the shoes. This goes on to prove that shoes can play an important role in building first impressions. So, it’s a good idea to make shoe cleaning
a part of your routine.
