Question

 I had just approached the corner when the light turned red indicating that I had to halt for passing traffic.  As I stood waiting patiently for the green signal a taxi slowly eased up aside me as it had been blocked by traffic ahead.  In that second I noticed the very handsome passenger in the back of the taxi checking me out.  Aowwww he’s feeling me (Brooklyn girl voice) I said to myself. However my excitement came to a crashing halt as mister handsome drifted his eyes from my face to my (wait for it) ....shoes. HUH?  Yeah my shoes.  And it wasn't any kind of glance it was a strong glance.  Now I didn’t exactly have on red bottoms but I thought my work appropriate Ellen Tracy oxfords were pretty cute.  So what was homeboy looking at? Before I could gather my thoughts and toss him the evil eye the taxi sped off just as quickly as it arrived.  The light finally turned green and I headed across the street with the city noise being drowned out by my confusion.  What just happened?  Is this a new thing?  Are fellas checking for a stellar shoe game these days?  Ladies & Gents please chime in on this pretty please.  I need answers.

  1. He was either a fashionisto, gay, or has a shoe fetish! LOL I think some guys are into shoes but this is NYC-- these mean streets will destroy on a pair of overpriced red bottoms! We reserve the fancy heels for models and taxi cab nights!

    1. Yeah maybe he was a fashionisto. Fashion week just wrapped so the city is crawling with style divos. LOL

  2. If they were oxfords then he may have been wondering if they were something he could rock, or some men don't know yet they we can rock oxfords and still be a girl.

  3. Lol too funny! I will say men do check for the shoe game, it has happen to me often. Men have even complimented me on my shoes or a particular clothing item. I am usually taken back because I didn't think they cared about that stuff.

  4. I agree with Bajan Beauty. They do pay close attention to that and most of them are straight.

  5. lol, that does seem crazy but I have noticed that guys are now taking notice in the shoe game. Unless he says, "your shoes are hot! where did you get them? my girl would love those", you have no reason to worry. if he says, " i need those shoes in my life", abort and abandon ship!

  8. I'm cracking up!! Guuurrllll... I truly believe guys are checking for the shoe game now. I constantly hear dudes talking about red bottoms and Jimmy choos. Meanwhile I'm like whatever. Red bottoms ain't my thing as they are too overpopulated for my liking. I do like a nice pair of shoes, affordable ones! Mr Fashion shoe fetish man has made for a great post, I'm still smiling.

  9. Some men really like to see women in nice shoes, especially high heels. I get compliments from men all the time about the shoes I am wearing and I had one married, supervisor who I had to keep an eye on, because he would often make comments (complimentary) about my pumps.
