Poll: Footwear

Although shoes are normally functional, many people use them as a fashion statement. Still, shoes are often necessary. In the summer, many people might go barefoot of choice in places that are warm enough, but in the snow, on rocky ground, when mountain climbing or hiking, and so forth, the proper footwear can substantially change the experience from negative to positive.

Footwear has also changed significantly over time. At the time of Jesus, most people wore either no shoes or sandals. Today, there is a dizzying assortment of shoe styles; running shoes, deck shoes, sneakers, casual shoes, hiking boots, high-top boots, corks, platforms, high-heels, dress shoes, slippers, flip-flops, sandals, and the list goes on.

Many people have a lot pairs of shoes. Other people may only have one or two pairs. Some people buy name brands and don’t think anything of spending a lot of money for the brand name. Other people are thrifty and purchase shoes that are the least expensive. Still others balance expense and craftsmanship so as to purchase shoes that last as long as possible, for the least amount of money possible.
