What shoes mean to women

I'd like to put shoes in perspective for the masses. In particular, the universal obsession women have with shoes. As one of those women, I feel that I have the expertise to remove some of the mystery from the subject.

The shoe obsession can also be seen as shallow and materialistic. Women who truly think that beauty is in what they wear do not understand the social implications that lead to second class positions.

Think about it. What do you say about a person who says that their social status is about the car they drive, the cigarettes they smoke, or the liquor they drink. Most people today would say that is a shallow perspective. Now substitute "shoes" into the plot and you'll see my point.

Now don't start screaming that dressing good is the same as a shoe fetish.
