New study shows you can judge people by the shoes they wear

It is such a giveaway that in the tests, observers who were shown a picture of a pair of shoes guessed around 90 per cent of the wearer’s personal characteristics.

Here’s a quick experiment: Look down at your shoes right now.

What were you wearing, sandals? Shiny, well-polished shoes? High heels? Nice shoes but a little scuffed around the edges?

Well, whatever your choices, this experiment shows that you really can judge a person by their shoes … and you do not need to see anything else to do so.

Psychologists from the University of Kansas found that the style, value, color and condition of the footwear can paint a picture of the owner’s emotional, political and other vital personality traits.

How accurate is it?
