The Red Shoes

What do your shoes say about you?

They say you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their shoes.

I’m a library assistant in an academic library, and the shoes I wear to work are red sneakers, which apparently, indicates confidence and personality.

I think it is safe to assume that, yes, I do have a personality (I’m not sure I would have survived without one), but the question remains: do I wear red shoes because I feel confident, or do I feel confident because I wear red shoes?

Either way, confidence and personality are positive attributes to bring to any workplace.

The Red Shoes

My children have not yet been exposed to The Red Shoes fairy tale, in which a young woman buys a pair of magic red shoes from a mysterious shoemaker; when she puts them on, they force her to dance forever, until, finally exhausted, she pulls them off, only to die.

Fortunately, this has not happened to me.

When he was younger, my son’s favourite shoes were his pair of red Converse All Stars.

Now, he certainly has confidence and personality, but that’s another story.
