When it comes to footwear everyone has their preference and taste. Attracting the desired sex however puts much more emphasis on the look and style of the shoe. From time immemorial clothing has always tried to adapt to the exigencies of those times, after all conformity is something which we as humans strive for to live and be accepted by our brethren. However, recent studies have put this to the test. It has been found that a unique, non-conformist footwear style earns more points when being judged by a potential mate. One explanation for this is a perceived level of independence to pursue a different path and having to bear the brunt of this action. In other words the status of that person wearing unique clothes will be elevated.
