Online Dating: The Shoes Don’t Lie!

Nov 2nd 2009 19 Comments

You know something’s uber-POPULAR when they start mocking about it in commercials

And when you add character representation using SHOES?!

Well then, that’s just pure Marketing Genius.

The MadMen who came up with DSW’s new ‘shoe-dating commercials KNOW their shiz when it comes to online-dating

Because THIS totally does happen!

Online-Profile Misrepresentation…a.k.a B.S.!

Btw…what shoes do YOU dahlings wear on a first date?

    LOL, so true!

    I haven't dated in a couple years; I'm happily taken πŸ™‚ BUT I can tell you that I never used to wear heels on first dates. I'm 5'7" and it's so hard to find an eligible tall guy in Honolulu!

  2. Elizabeth Marie says:

    Ahhhh dating. I'm gonna start wearing yoga pants and a hoodie. LOL jk…

  3. Diana says:

    ah on my first date with scott i wore my marc jacobs mocassins. my message was "i'm too smart. just try to outsmart me." he did. with a pair of brown wallabees, the kind only professors wear. le sigh.

    I think it depends on what sort of date it's going to be.

    On my first date with the hubs I wore cork wedges. Promise they were cute. Ah ha. We went to a comedy show and Gameworks afterward. Ahhhhhhh, memories.

    That was funny, and very typical of a blind date type scenario!

    I am such a fashion guru that I wear whatever is closest to the door! lol

  17. Jaime says:

    i love that ad. date shoes? it's been a REAL long time since i've been on a date. i have no idea what i'd wear.

    sorry i couldn't come into the city and meet up with you guys this weekend.

  18. Miss Journey says:

    I have these cute Guess flats that I got at none other than DSW πŸ™‚
    They're cute and kind of dressy because of the gold adornments. They're practical, just in case I need to sprint away from the date (a strategy I learned from a wise friend, lol)
