Hi Dr Sole,

I was watching you on the Tyra Banks Show and I have a man who wears these shoes: they have a slight quarter of an inch lift on the sole of the foot and they are rounded in the front, size 11, light brown leather Sketchers.

Could you please give me some insight?

Thank you so much!

Dear Sole Lift,

Before I go into a Shoe Reading first ask yourself, “What insight his shoes give you?” Focus on the qualities that his shoes exude. Then match up those qualities to what you want in a man. Are his shoes nice and comfortable, kind and soft? Is that what you are looking for in a man? Or do you think brown is boring? And that’s not what you’re looking for in a relationship?

Try out your own intuitions about the qualities of his shoes that you discover.

Sketchers as a brand tend to be hybrid shoes. Which means they aren’t in one category or another. Guys wear them at the office; out on a date, and get away with them at dressier occasions. Be careful he doesn’t have a “one-size fits all” style (and attitude) to life.

Relationships need variety and excitement to keep them going over the long haul. Perhaps, take him shoe shopping and introduce him to new shoes that exude the qualities you like best about him and what he likes best about himself.

It’s fun to get out of your comfort zone – starting with your shoes!

Ask Dr. Sole
