It just speaks of your laid back, down to earth, and practical nature. Ballerina flats mean you’re a woman who puts comfort above style. According to psychiatrist Carole Lieberman women who prefer ballet flats are just grabbing something to put on their feet because they have to, and they could be pretty free-wheeling about other aspects of their life as well. Productive and outspoken, you’re not one to mince your words and it would be foolish for those around you to underestimate your style game. Print flats in every conceivable color and fabric combination, though, tell another story. However, those women who wear flip-flops—if they’re not at the beach—may be too laid-back and seen as a conformist, traditional, perhaps a little timid.

Apparently, you like attention as when it comes to dressing for an occasion you have a hard time scaling back when the occasion calls for it believing it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. If you wear designer pumps, you’re a woman who invests in yourself and values personal style and comfort. “If she’s wearing an expensive pair of work shoes—closed-toe, conservative pumps—she probably values her work a lot,” says celebrity stylist Christa Scherck. Also, it shows you’re the kind of person who likes to splurge on luxuries. According to the report of University of Kansas study, researchers found out that a woman who spends half a month’s rent on a pair of shoes is likely to have a more demanding personality, but the good news is that she can probably afford all her luxuries on her own. That’s no real surprise, considering that the style of a shoe or its designer label can be immediately revealing.
