    Even if you're just wearing jeans and a tee, some days it's nice to wear sneakers...some days boo-its etc.

    Indeed!
    When I judge a person Ive never met before (and lets be honost, we all make our first impressions based on looks) I always look at their footwear first, men aswell as women.

    The main reason I took him off my ignore list was that he posts so much that sometimes half the page was "folded up" posts.
    Well - we're all getting along now, that's the main thing huh :-)

    GWAMM is a huge undertaking, it's not possible for most people unless you have like a billion ectos.

    My main account is currently at 35/50 and going for even 40 for the next title seems quite impossible for me even though I could get 6 titles easily I would still need 19 other titles to get the 5 points.

    I've given up on further progress.

    So how does it work - if I ignore you, I don't see your posts...but you see mine? Or, neither of us can see the others?
    Heh I didn't even find out there was an ignore list until recently, don't really see the point in using it but mehhh...

    Heck yea. I don't "buy the guys don't care about footwear" thing. Some men probably be apprehensive about admitting such depending on their upbringing. Deep down, I think men are as vain[er!] as women when it comes to appearance. ;d

    The comment was made in jest, dear. Don't be bad at the internet.

    You guys are being so sexists, surely everyone, man or woman, wants to look pretty.

    The only part of me that's vain is my hair. But unlike most guys, I like long hair.

    My girlfriend will be the first to tell you I'm way too feminine, but I still don't get the shoes thing. I like to keep it simple.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    And what do you think about a guy in his early 20s wearing black basketball shoes?

    Dunno. Id need not only the shoes, but the whole outfit and the rest of his looks to be able to make an impression. Dont we all?

    You're weird.

    I look at hair first and foremost, it's rather hard not to!

    Some people got the client from the stress-test, no one has gotten a link for the new client yet.

    If you bought gw2 you will get an beta email when it's ready for download, don't worry about it.

    Well...it's not just the shoes, I have black high-tops...it's the fact that the shoes paint a brush stroke that adds more information about the whole picture - sometimes it can be just another stroke...but sometimes it can be quite powerful and realigns the rest of the painting.

    For instance - say there's a guy in a really expensive business suit...but he's wearing really old and muddy shoes. There's a story there...there's something going on that you can't just see from the surface.

    To be fair, I had my own psychotherapy practice for years and am deeply fascinated by this kind of thing...

    You would think - it would be as hard for us to not notice your shoes as it would be for you to not notice some persons hair...

    ^ Absolutely. Haggerty gets it. Shoes are telling of one's tidiness, social status and attention to detail.

    Obvs. I will notice other aspects of a man's appearance, but his shoes do not go unnoticed.
