6 Shoes Not to Wear on a First Date

It’s time for yet another first date. You already know what not to order and what not to drink to appear like the classy lady you are. But, what about footwear? Most guys pay no attention to what women are wearing in the sense of up-to-the-minute trends. But, many men will notice if you look polished and put together. Wearing overly suggestive garments or shoes could turn him off (and possibly make him question your day job). To play it safe, a simple pump always does the trick. But what shoes should be avoided all together? Don't wear these shoes on your next first date.
Stipper Platforms. Hooker heels with a clear sole are just not a classy choice. A shoe with a sensible platform provides comfort and style, but remember that all platforms aren’t created equal. Platforms that look more appropriate sliding down a pole lack the sophistication you’d hope to convey on a first date.
Thigh-high Boots. Rock your own edgy style, girl - but try to avoid sporting a boot that looks more like a Halloween costume than a trend. Opt for a boot that cuts just below or right above your knee for a stylish look without too much one-night-stand sass.
Combat Boots. You may live in Bushwick, but a plaid shirt, Ray Bans and combat boots are more appropriate for a coffee run in the neighborhood than a date with a new potential love interest. Men don’t understand masculine style on women, so avoid these on your first night out on the town together.
Lady Gaga Wedges. When you need height along with comfort, a wedge is a go-to choice in the form of a boot, bootie or shoe. But, please remember that an outrageously tall or overly decorated wedge may turn off a new guy. Men don’t understand outlandish fashion. Save the risks for a girls night with your Man Repeller besties.
Athletic sneakers. Unless your first date involves a run in Central Park or a rock climbing class, leave the sneakers at home, Sporty Spice. Sneaker-type shoes have come a long way - from glittery TOMS to hipster Converses - but you don’t want your date to think you didn’t put any thought or effort into your look. If you’re going for a casual shoe, slip on embellished flats instead for a polished look with a sneaker feel.
Uggs. Let’s face it, your favorite sheepskin boots you’ve adored since college winters past are meant for running errands in the cold weather, not spending a night with a new sexy guy. Uggs, and any other similar brand, are just plain ugly.

What shoes do you avoid wearing on a first date? xo 


  1. Great list Sarah! Another one I completely avoid - flip flops! :)

  2. Great article on what shoes to wear on a first date, I'll be sure to keep this in mind at all times. Thanks.

  3. I agree that when going on a first day, it's very important to keep things natural and do not impress. Comfy joya shoes would do for a perfect first date.

  4. Awesome Then what kind of shoes are merrel shoes then?

  5. Women of today, prefers being simple in picking their attire on their first date. That’s reasonable, of course, you don’t want to impress the guy by those flashy clothes and shoes, it can just make you irritable; what’s more important is you know that you’re well dressed by being comfortable in what you’re wearing.
