What shoes mean to women
Original post made by Sierra Rhodes on Aug 19, 2013
Shoes make or break an outfit. A little black dress might as well be a potato sack if worn with an ugly pair of sandals or worn out tennis shoes. Shoes can make legs look infinitely longer and more shapely, can give a flirtatious air to an otherwise conservative outfit, and the click-clack of heels striding down a hall is a symphonic announcement of "I'm here. Now stare in awe, shut up and listen to what I have to say."
Shoes are a status symbol. Whether recognizable as a certain brand or not, the elegance and make of a shoe is obvious at a glance. Cheap shoes are like a cheap car. Roll up in a 90's Kia and everyone suddenly assumes you live in a trailer park.
But these are only words. To illustrate my point, I give you an example in film of the power of shoes. A classic story and film that shows just how important shoes really are.

One of my favorite scenes from Lackawanna Blues, narrated during the 'Caledonia' dance party sequence:
"It didn't matter how you were dressed from the ankle up, because it was the SHOOOOez that made you sharp!"
Heartwarming film -- the world could do with a few more Rachel Crosbys!
