If The Shoe Fits...

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You can learn a lot about a woman by looking at her shoes – really.

In fact, a New York-based shoe expert has created a new system of personality classification based entirely on the style of shoe a woman prefers.

The sort-of “shoe astrology” concocted by Meghan Cleary shows that flip-flop wearers are energetic, outdoorsy types who love the water, while clog gals are mellow yet hard- working.

If you love sneakers, you’re a real hipster who knows the coolest music and is always dashing around town, while high-heel sandal wearers are ultra-feminine types who are experts at balancing all aspects of their lives.

Cleary created the “sole-revealing” profiles based on her own surveys and she says she’s now convinced there’s no better gauge to a woman’s state of mind than the shoes she wears.

She describes her own personality as a “stiletto sun sign with a ballet flat rising” and says she will soon create a shoe personality guide for men.

Cleary outlines her system in the book The Perfect Fit: What Your Shoes Say About You (Chronicle).
