Yeah, but again I have to show up looking good, and pedaling across a highway can't happen plus is be pouring sweat. I also have two jobs, so I have very little time in between jobs. And let's be honest, it's Texas, why the would I walk to work when I have a truck and a motorcycle?

And yeah I look at people's shoes, I think most people notice. You might not notice if they are normal, but of you're all dressed up and your shoes look bad, then people will notice.

Same situation here actually. About 3 miles from the office and looking like a sweaty biker isn't exactly appropriate.

Just get a pair or two of nice looking shoes to wear at the office. Maybe even leave some pants there too. Its a pain, but, its about the best option.

You may not but believe it - MANY people do. It has been known for years that it is one of the best ways to judge someone. How a person cares for his shoes and what he wears gives you a lot of insight into what kind of person he is.

Yes, we all notice when you're wearing those pink stilettos and no, they don't look good on you.

Well I know it's important in business situations and job interviews as I've heard they look at that, but I'm thinking more in general. Like going to the store or even the job you work at everyday.

Then why did you buy them for me?!? Sheesh you're impossible to please.

Yep - every day. You never know who you'll run into at the office either.

Good to hear someone else agrees, I was beginning to think I was the only one. I have a pair of pants there just in case I get into something. I also don't go to the office and back home some days. There are days we go to a company lunch, or I have to go check a site, or run by another office, just another reason pedaling doesn't work, and wearing the same shoes becomes even more important. I can't go throwing on sneakers for lunch, it's easier just to cover that foot with something I can leave on the bike. Thanks again for all the good opinions guys

We agreed on all points pretty much
