What type of shoes best represent you and your life? Are you an old, comfortable pair of sneakers? A pair of leather cowboy boots? A pair of soft, furry houseslippers? What are you?!

Who am I? I am a pair of Dr. Martens. Strong and durable on the outside...comfortable and supportive on the inside. I have a variety of styles, but am never snooty. I am tough to break, but have a soft sole. Hee hee, I couldn't resist ;)

I have got moccasin type shoes in 7 different colors and am kind of known for wearing them whenever I can.

Oh I think I know what you are talking about. My mom used to have a pair of light pink ones. They are suede and look oh so comfy!

Not hard to guess what I am lol!!! I am the oldest pair of lace up cowboy boots that you can find. Comfy as any pair of slippers on this planet or any other. I'm just in for the weekend to do some errands, have a hot bath, and just generally WARM UP. It has been cold and rainy out in the middle of nowhere. I am going back on Monday. Just thought I'd pop in and check on a couple of old friends.

Sneakers, worn and comfortable. I like the casual clothes mostly. Although, I wear flip-flops mostly around the house in the summer and slippers in the winter. I have never worn cowboy boots, but admire the lifestyle. Furry slippers? My granddaughter has some Doras like that...I don't think I could wear them even if they came in my size...lol

Hello nurse, This is somewhat of an odd discussion, I'm not knocking it. It just not one that I would of though to make. I have to admit it is a good one. Because there are some of us, when buying shoes.. lol, can certainly take forever to get one pair. I like to buy an affordable pair which should last about a year. So I guess, I'm an old comfortable pair of sneakers kind of guy. When I buy shoes.. I look for errors in the stitching, I want to make sure that they're not going to replaced within the same time frame that I bought them in. And yes, I'm one of those guy's that takes forever buying a pair of shoes. I can't help it, it's in my nature. I do however like a comfortable pair of slippers too.

I think I'd have to choose the old comfortable sneakers. Sneakers represent being active and being ready for anything. I'm also comfortable with myself, and try and make others comfortable. Sneakers have rubber soles, and I have a resiliant rubber 'soul' too, I bounce back pretty easily. Sneakers are casual, and I'm casual too. Sneakers get pretty beat up & are rugged, and they still keep doing what they're meant to do until they reach their final days.

To be honest with you...my bare feet! Especially with the summer coming. I actually go barefoot all year in my apartment and if I could get away with it would go outside that way...and have once or twice. I don't like slippers at all. Just give me good ol' bare feet!

Yup, I seldom have shoes on when at home or around the yard at my home.

I'm definitely an old pair of sneakers, but with some funky rainbow laces, and lots of scribbles and drawings on them.

Pink flip flops, girly and easy to get into (sorry had to type that lol), I'm really married and boring, but like bright colors and fun shoes.

I am so into sandals and I try to wear them in the winter when it isn't too cold out at all. I like to wear anything that is comfortable.

At work: My Black very flat EasySpirits. At Home Inside: My black $6.00 moccasins! At Home Outside: My big clunky black slip on shoes that can go in mud, water, dirt, and still haven't gotten ruined yet! Never heals, never furry, rarely sneakers.

I haven't tried them yet, but Sketchers has some sandals that look pretty comfortable. I have Sketchers in 3 different colors, and they are some of the most comfortable sneakers I've ever had. The sandals look like they're built like the sneakers.

Trainers. I like training or helping others. They're also the type I wear and like but I don't think I would compare myself to any other type because I'm actually what they are. Useless! Nah i'm joking, ~Joey

I guess I'de have to be a pair of well worn earth shoe clogs. Kind of clunky and chunky but made well, comfy, dependable and balancing. (just don't walk on a wet floor or ice, no traction...I just had a bad fall...lol)

Well it depends on my mood. I have my boots that I love and would wear them year round if I could get by with it. I have a pair sneakers and I have my sandles. I love to mix it up and not be so predictable when it comes to my shoes.

I'd say I am an ugly pair of crocs! lol. I might not be the best looking but at least i'd be comfortable and not too flashy! That sounds about right to me!

In the cool and cold months here in Minnesota USA I weqar my favorite worn out tennies. But in the spring and summer months I wear what I refer to as "My Jesus Sandlas". Open toed with starps across the top of the foot and across the heel in back. And only leather not vinyl or some other manmade product. I can;t wear but leather sandals. They look like the sandals that most pictures depict Jesus wearing. LOL. It's always hard to find the right style the past few years now with velcro and all. Makes it difficult to find the true so called "Jesus Sandals". HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
