Feet and shoes

This week pay particular attention to people's feet and shoes. At this time of the year those of us north won't see much more than shoes and boots, but those say a lot about a person too. A woman in fashion boots with 3 inch heels is not the same person as a woman in salt stained Timberland boots.

Some things to look for:
  • Size, length and width
  • Stillness, movement
  • How they're held at rest (Don't worry about how people walk unless you want to. Just doing how feet look is enough for a week.)
  • Do the feet point straight, in, out, slump to the outside edges
  • Color(s)
  • How old
  • Practicality
  • Thickness of sole
  • Size of heel
  • Wear on the heels (amount, evenness)
  • Clean or dirty (new dirt or layers accumulated)
  • Stains
  • Wear pattern
  • Crease pattern
  • Stockings, socks, patterns or solid
