We can say that women are the ones who know the shoes best, it is even safe to say that they are their number one passion in life… as oppose to men. But everything has its exception.

There are men who have a lot of shoes in their wardrobe and know what every pair is suitable for.
But still for most men the shoes are a practical necessity.

In spite of this, many men wear uncomfortable and inappropriate shoes.

For example, many men wear the same shoes after work, others avoid certain clothes and events because sneakers would be considered inappropriate but they like them too much.

For most men it is not negligence to other shoe styles but lack of personal trust in the choice. If this sounds like you or someone you know, read below.

* Try to choose shoes which match the color of your pants or are a bit darker.
