The Shoes: White Alligator Skin Extended-Toe Lace-Up Loafers
He says: I'll call you.
His shoes say: At 3 A.M.

The Shoes: Suede Two-Toned Saddle Shoes

Men's shoes aren't just an accessory--they are windows to his sole! This frank, eye-opening guide helps you determine a guy's potential as a date or a mate--all by looking at his shoes. Shoe guru Donna Sozio teaches you to determine your Solemate Compatibility Factor before you say "I do." . .or "Okay, let's do it."

Now, for the first time, you will find out how a man's shoes can answer three crucial questions: Who is he? How does he feel about himself? And what can you expect from him in the relationship? Inside, you'll also find such chapters as:

  • Talk Shoe to Me

  • Sex and the Sole

  • Coupling (Socks and Shoes)

  • Size Matters

Remember, men don't often say much--but their shoes speak volumes!
