When you think fashion I'm sure the mind automatically goes to clothes. Perhaps to accessories as well, handbags, and purses for the ladies, jewelry for both sexes. But another part of fashion is of course footwear. When we think of what to wear in real life we think of comfort, style and others' impressions. For some, what to wear may have to do with mood and or expression of one's self. Yet in our virtual world we do tend to roleplay and live SL as if it were real and our avatar has come to life on the screen.
When you're on an SL beach do you go barefoot? When your av is nude, are your feet dressed up or nude? As Sesame Street once asked in a Ziggy Marley song "Set your piggies free," do you ever set your piggies free or does your virtual footwear always stay on?
And with enhancements such as mesh feet, I'm sure some of us have gone barefoot just to admire our avi feet. With Foot Fetish being big in real and SL, I am more than certain that some tend to buy not only the best in footwear, but also the best feet and foot accessories they can. Fashion and things surrounding it will always be big in our Second lives.
Today I'm headed out to ask: heels, shoes, boots or barefoot? I for one like all of them. I love admiring my av's feet rather they're prettied up in shoes or boots, or barefoot and nails painted...I love em. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. Not only fashion but our avatar style altogether is a form of pride and creativity, especially when SL content is mostly user created.
Becca Drascol: Heels,Shoes,Boots or Barefoot-How do you run around SL?
Marie3whispers Resident: hmmms Heels most of the time, boots sometimes, barefoot once in awhile.
Katkafox Resident: Heels and boots mostly... I've found that thigh-high boots render most men weak in the knees.
GlamSwede Resident: Depends on the situation, but mostly heels.
PixelBlossom Melody: Shoes mostly and boots. I don't like heels. I like flats in the warmer months and boots in winter.
DragonMaster Mistwalker: I personally love boots never found any shoes in sl I find for males that look good.
Of those asked, seems heels are a popular choice followed by boots. Perhaps it's the hick in me, but I don't like wearing any shoes RL when relaxing around the house. Yet in SL I tend to flip between various heels and boots. With so many styles and variety of footwear in our virtual world, there's just so much to love.
