Now this is a subject that has such diverse psychology lol. Are you one of those peole that love to wear comfy fitting shoes and do not mind walking out of Clarks looking nerdy? Or are you one of those Prada Divas or gents in croc leather? Do you compromise the care and comfort of your very important feet just to look 'good' and sexy? Or you like to be comfortable and say say hey this is me, like it or lunmp it? I try to flitter between the two..Most of the time I wear very comfy slip ons but very now and then, rarely that is I will wear a pretty dress and heels to please my Beloved..I LOVE TO BE COMFORTABLE AS I SAW MY MUM'S FEET GET BAD BECAUSE SHE USED TO WEAR THOSE POINTED SHOES IN THE LATE 50'S EARLY 60'S LOL..THEY ARE BACK IN FASHION TOO!!

Oh barbie. I am a guy so it can't be for fashion. I want my shoes to look decent, yes, but they have to be comfortable too. I can't stand wearing uncomfortable shoes for the sake of fashion. But after all, all men shoes look quite the same, don't they? LOL :P

I like shoes for comfortness and not for style.Mostly I dont wear a shoe but when ever my exams comes or when I go for a meeting or something,I wear one which is not at all for style.

I have to wear shoes for comfort. I have had two back surgeries and my one leg was paralyzed for a while so now I can't wear heals. I have to wear flat shoes. And my leg and foot swells up so I have to be comfortable, even if they look ugly. I hate it but nothing I can do about it now.

I am one of the people who could care less what other people think of me and what I am wearing. So for me, my shoes have to be comfortable. I am happy with my flip flops and my two dollar pair of canvas sneakers.

Hi Yan. I'm one of those people who is a certified shoe lover. Its one the whims I have since I was a little girl. I always go for good quality and comfort. It doesn't necessarily be expensive. There are quite a good number of local brands here that are affordable, have great design and best of all, won't hurt my feet.

I'm in college right now and i have to walk in a very very zigzag and ugly road but i choose to wear fashionable shoes rather than a falt shoes to become comportable while i'm walking in school. hehe.. I dont kno why is that. but I just think that whenever I wear shoes like I'm wearing in school now, a pointed shoesand high heels I feel like I'm the most beautiful in the campus and everyone's watching me. hehe.. lol. but that's true. hehe.. dream on myself. hehe.. for me wearing a shoes like that can add confident to us.

I actually wear shoes for comfort. I don't like to wear shoes if i'm not comfortable with it because it will be hard for me to walk and that is not good. But there are also times that i need to wear shoes even if i'm not comfortable like when there is a special occassion. I think it will be better to have a nice and fashionable shoes but very comfortable to wear.

I try to combine both - comfort and fashion. I used to wear really high heels but as age has crept up on me I have toned the heels down somewhat. In the house I go barefoot. I guess that proves to me as well as everyone else that I like my feet comfortable.

I like shoes for comfort and flats especially. Sandals are good. Actually good shoes don't really make your feet hurt. I remembered during my studies in London, my Hong Kong friend was wearing a flat pointed shoes. It is very fashionable at that time and I kind of itch to buy it but I was really afraid the damage it will do to my poor feet. She told me its really comfortable actually and she bought it at LK Bennett. I know its expensive. Hence, when my parents visited me during the Summer Sale, we bought like 5 pairs altogether. When I wore it, it kind of irritates me a little at first but after a short while, its really comfortable. Never thought pointed shoes could be so comfortable. Its really nice.

Hey there.. Hi You know what Yanji I am a bit of both, I mean I like fashion but will never compromise on the comfort. Actually I like wearing those sports types and so those are mostly comfortable. If bought from a good company they are always a lil funky, you know. I like being sporty and easy. So most of the times I prfer wearing my sandals or those sports shoes. I do like wearing those light wight canvas. they are cool. I like canvases from Converse and reebok, they are always great in design and they match my dressing style. I do wear leather shoes sometimes but I never go for the heal ones. I am actually not comfortable with them. The flatter they are, more comfortable they are. But not as flat that they look bad. I like wide shoes actually so they look good on my feet. Any ways Take Care May GOD Bless YOU

I used to wear shoes for fashion, but ended up with fascitis. Then I had to go to more sensible shoes, because on top pf that, I ended up with rheumatoid arthritis in my feet. I have so much pain in my feet now, no matter what kind of shoes I wear, so I try not to push it. It is now what ever hurts my feet the least. I wear a lot of clogs so that I can slip them off if they start to bother me.

I remember Greta Garbo said once, the clothes have to be a size smaller and the shoes a size bigger LOL! In fact, I'm a shoe freak. I love shoes! Luckily I managed somehow to find a pair of ballerinas, which are so soft like slippers. They would be wonderful, if they wouldn't be... pale pink! I haven't a lot of pink clothes... I haven't anything agains heels, and some of high heel shoes are very comfortable (but the heels shouldn't be higher than 7 cm. Alright, 8, but this is maximum. The best would be of course comfortable AND fashionable shoes, two in one (LOL). It is possible, it isn't a fairy tale or science fiction, it happened to me couple of times that I find a perfect pair!

I wear shoes to protect my feet. As long as it is comfortable and faciliates me to walk fast and run, I wear it. It doesn't matter if it look odd or does not match my clothes. Heels are out for me.

Comfort is more important to me that the personal look. But I always ensure that there is a balance between the Comfort and Look whenever I select the dresses and things like shoes for me. It also varies on the situation too. When I go to some Professional Meeting, Parties etc., I give preference to the Look than the Comfort. Because at those cases, it is the look that matters than our personal comfort. When I go out for shopping or other personal reasons, I give importance to my comfort. With that, I prefer to wear shoes when I go for some Professional Reasons. But for the other reasons, I prefer not to use Shoes.

i prefer shoes more for the comfort that they provide. i would not look for the design/fashion in the shoes. A wrong shoe might give a nightmare as we need to wear it for hours together.

shoes are very easy to wear and they provide comfort also. they make the fashion also so i make both the uses of the shoes.

I'm forced to wear shoes for comfort because I wear size 13 shoes. They are hardly any fashionable shoes that are that size. But I prefer shoes that absolutely confortable.

i think the answer tio this is both. i like shoes becuase they are confortable and thy protect the ffets from getting dorty so that is an advantage anmd also when u buy a good shoe it make a nice fashion to your dress code and thatr stands out and i like the fact that people like my shoes. i think ithers also like it and i am like the same view

I am very lucky to have feet that are comfortable in most any shoes..( save those really pointy toed shoes).. but I stand at my job for up to 10 hours a day and I stand in 3 inch wedges or heels ( mainly wedges) and my feet/legs don't get tired...I walk 5-7 miles per day after work either on my treadmill or outside and at that time I wear very well made running shoes. I have been doing the same job for over 25 years and since I love shoes I usually choose "cute" shoes....My feet appear no worse for the wear...I wouldn't wear shoes that hurt my feet...so guess I am an oddity in that I can pull off wearing most any style shoe and standing all day and have few troubles with them. I love Clarks and Privo's but also love very high fashion shoes that friends of mine don't see how I walk in!! LOL...I have sandals called Chacos that are all terrain sandals that I love to hang out in on the weekends...I hike in them, wade in the ocean in them...and run errands in them...so I cover most every catagory of shoe...again...but not the extreme pointed variety!!!!
