So have you ever wondered what guys think about shoes? I mean, we ladies spend so so much time on shoe shopping and picking out just the right heel with our dresses or jeans--which heels make our legs look long & lean, and which heels add a splash of color to a simple outfit, etc. etc. But what does the everyday man think of when it comes to shoes? Does he even notice? Does he really get why we spend a good amount of our hard-earned dough on shoes (and not video games or gadgets or flat screen TVs)?
Well, my dear brother-in-law, Jeff, who's not only a stand-up comedian, but a motivational speaker and one of the creators of the hilarious WaterCoolerJokes.com website, offered to review these killer 4-inch platform GUESS 'Hondo' heels I've been eyeing, and I thought, hey what the heck! So guys: enjoy this refreshing male take on shoes...and gals: listen up to one funny shoe reality check!

This shoe is made by Guess. It looks nice. It isn’t too crazy like other shoes I see women wear. This has just one buckle rather than 20. And unlike some women’s shoes, it has classic colors, not “purple frog skin” or something equally from the future. Also, the heel is just a couple inches and so doesn’t affect the wearer’s height too much. When you see women on a regular basis and then one day she wears big heels it messes with your world for a split second. As a guy your mind doesn’t go right to “oh she is wearing different shoes,” you think “SOMETHING IS WRONG, and I MUST PROTECT MYSELF FROM THIS BIGGER PERSON.” These shoes wouldn’t do that.
I think women could wear these shoe most places without soft grass, mud or sand. If they were to wear them in those “soft ground situations”, I think the heel would sink into the ground or the person wearing them would have to walk on their toes. If they walked on their toes for too long then they would ask the guy they were with to always take a break or sit down. That gets annoying. That combined with always needing to pee would mean the day in these shoes would consist of:
20 percent = normal social activities
80 percent = going to the bathroom, looking for a bathroom, or taking a break while in search for a bathroom.
And 90 bucks isn’t bad for good shoes. I paid 100 bucks for some really good hiking boots, and they work great even when ground is soft. And they are water-resistant. In my opinion, save up 10 more bucks, go to REI and get the boots.
Good shoes though Holly.
