Store Offers Dates in Exchange for Shoes: Cute or Creepy?

Who said Cinderella is just a fairy tale? Just like Cinderella's glass slipper led her to her handsome prince, a shoe store in Malaysia claims that buying shoes can help you find The One. "As seen in fairy tales," read the ads for Shoes, Shoes, Shoes in Kuala Lumpur. "Buy a pair of shoes, get a date for free."



So how does it work? According to the store's Facebook page, "A man knows your taste for shoes and he buys them for you. A dream come true? Well, it is." According to The New York Daily News, women buy a pair of shoes at the boutique and leave their "details" (we assume this means their contact information) with the store. A dating website then matches the woman’s profile with "eligible bachelors" who have chosen the same pair of shoes.

Now here's the first problem we detect: Not to stereotype, but straight women: How many straight men do you know who are into shoes? Nevertheless, once the store finds your "match," you go on a date. You even receive a discount on shoes from your handsome fella. Interested? The only thing is, you must live in the Kuala Lumpur area (in Malaysia) to join in the fun. We can't say we're disappointed to be ineligible. Are you?

    It's creepy... as long as there's any pressure to opt in (and I'm assuming there is, salespeople being what they are and all that).

    If not, what's the harm?.

    thats just weird. I want to go over htere just to do it and laugh about it. and so true about the straight guys: they probably wont care about shoes, most are just like, yeah those look fine whatever. but yeah, i wouldnt want to date a guy just cause we picked out the same pair of shoes! haha just sayin:D

    It could be cute but it also could cause problems. Woman could end up w/ a rapist or worse.

    Well, there are a lot of foot fetishists out there, so the guy choosing your shoes that you date is probably going to spend a lot of time getting your feet sticky....

    It's really random and lame, but I'm a closet romantic who finds the whole Cinderella idea cute, even though it's definitely cringeworthy. I wouldn't necessarily go on a date with some shoe boy, however.

    If finding a good man was as easy as finding a good pair of shoes; I'd have a closet full! No, seriously...I would so go shopping for a man if I could. This is a great idea!!

    Thinking to highly of yourself. Kid don't even look good.


    but now that I think about it, it is a cute little concept but in real life would never work out.
