I think that being categorized sometimes confuse us much more than in the past. When I go to a shoe shop, I am always annoyed by shoe categories.
I think that all shoes should be categorized by foot shape and size. If so, I just need to go to some specific foot shape corner which matches my foot in the footwear department. Then I just simply select my shoes by design or use. It will shorten my shopping time until I find my shoes. So I can go home very quickly.
But now all shoes are categorized by use, brand, men’s, women’s or children’s. I can remember some brand names which have a suitable shape and size for my foot. But sometimes a favorite shop closes. So again I feel astray looking for shoes.
Categories should be simple and help to find something which we are seeking. Don’t you think so?
