‘Show me your shoes and I will tell you who you are’ is the conclusion a published study by a pool of researchers at the University of Kansas seems to have reached.

The study shows that the types of shoes people wear reveal more about them than conventionally thought.

Participants of different ages, social backgrounds and professions took tests that determined their personalities based on the shoes they preferred.

They also explained their choices and surprisingly, the results were consistent.

Factors such as levels of income, temperaments, composure and the general outlook of life, were all gathered just by looking at the shoes the people chose.

Below are the stunning conclusions .

Should you find yourself with plenty of these kind of shoes, you are an extroverted individuals who loves to flaunt what you have.

This is evident with many boisterous celebrities who love to be seen and heard.

Within your cycle of friends, chances that whoever has colourful shoes is the most talkative and feels confident in his or her own skin, judging by factors such the manner of expression.

Individuals with expensive shoes tend to be top earners in the market, often lacing their feet with designer footwear that costs an arm and a leg in order to impress.

Such individuals tend to work in highly competitive environments and take themselves very seriously.

They are business-minded and prefer to make silent statements through their dressing.

Good examples are Hollywood superstars, who wear expensive and often custom clothes and shoes and complete their looks with equally expensive accoutrements.

They often wear brands including Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Roger Vivier, and Oxford.

3. Old but very well maintained shoes

This kind of shoes belongs to the industrious fellows who take their work very seriously and perform their duties thoroughly.

People who were these shoes are conscientious and never abandon their responsibilities.

Often, they tend to perform noble tasks and are willing to forego benefits for the sake of their calling.

They do not waste their resources.

Just like soldiers put on boots before they go to war, so do the wearers of these shoes.

They are aggressive by nature and prefer to be in charge.

Their willingness to handle matters hands-on often tends to make people rely on them as they make even the toughest of assignments appear very easy.

Women who consistently put on boots show more masculine traits and often take the leading roles in their relationships.

These are the individuals who seldom want to be heard or even seen.

They marvel in carrying out their roles silently without seeking any attention.

Women with an affinity for this kind of shoes glow in their femininity and feel girly when adorned in such.

Their work ethic is unquestionable and they are also very practical and agreeable.

They are often up to a good time and loud laughs.

Ever seen individuals who show up in embarrassing flip flops to dates?

Sometimes it’s inexpensive old sneakers with unimpressive colours.

Interestingly, these people walk around as if they own the world and give no care or thought to what others think.

The study found that people who love shabby shoes tend to be liberal thinkers.

In Kenya, they are fondly referred to as the I-don’t-cares.

They are quite vocal about their beliefs and hardly back down when discussing matters that affect their well-being.

Have the latest and trendiest pairs of shoes is common among fashionistas.

However, those who constantly wear new pairs shoes display the trait of anxious attachment.

They are unsure of their place in people’s lives and constantly fear they will be rejected if they do not pay close attention to their looks.

It is natural to always want to give the best first impression.

This being a biological fact, people work on their shoe game because people take notice.

It therefore beats logic for one to always attend gatherings in boring shoes that squeeze life out of them and their beholder.

The study found that people who wear boring tend to be very aloof and repressive.

They really have no time to try please others and the need to be appear outstanding does not appeal to them.

The biggest irony the study found was that lovers of uncomfortable shoes are actually very calm people.

They hardly react to external factors and take their time before acting upon occurrences.

Perhaps much of their focus may be tuned to their balancing mechanisms should they stumble upon anything.

In this category are the flashy Converse, vans and Nike shoes.

Lovers of these type of shoes are often young people who dislike the formal look.

These people are fashion conscience and move with the trends.

They are simple by nature and want to be viewed as ‘cool’.

The next time someone asks you about your shoes, be sure of the kind you prefer as the question as simple as many imagine.

A journey of a thousand many miles starts with a single step. A Nakuru-based bodaboda operator’s self-help group proved this in its growth. Driven by the ambition to have something to take home once they couldn’t ride any more, ten bodaboda operators from Barut, Nakuru West in 2015 formed Kianjahi Group, pooling a minimum savings of Sh100 per week per person.

“Being a bodaboda operator is a risky job and has serious effect on one’s health especially if you don’t dress properly for the cold. After attending a seminar in Machakos we decided to start making savings,” said Benson Sigei, the group chairperson.

The group grew as more members joined in 2016. After evaluating their progress, the members increased their weekly savings to Sh200 and eventually to Sh1,000.

“Before the year ended we were nearly 100 members. Our savings were growing and we had to come up with plans which some members considered as too ambitious and pulled out,” says Sigei. With savings of nearly Sh2 million, they bought a 1.6-acre piece of land which was previously a sand quarry.

“It cost us Sh2.1 million in buying the land and rehabilitating it to usable standards. We embarked on making savings for constructing houses which would be of similar design,” he said.

To make this possible they converted the group into Kianjahi Housing Cooperative Society Limited and introduced Sh15,100 registration fee and minimum share capital of Sh60,000 payable in Sh500 weekly instalments.

AmpThe group started the construction of two-bedroom houses in a gated community model.

“Every member now contributes a minimum of Sh1,500 for savings every week. Those yet to clear their share capital make an additional payment of Sh500. This amount does not exert great pressure on the riders since the majority make nearly KShs1,000 per day.

The group then started the construction of two-bedroom houses in a gated community model where four houses sit on every 50 by 100 feet plot. The cooperative completed the construction of the first 50 units majority of which have already been occupied.

“We took a Sh15 million loan and in addition to our savings we bought an additional acre of land at Sh2.1 million. In the first phase, we have constructed 52 housing units. 35 members have already moved in,” said the vice-chairman.

The cooperative has bought a third parcel of land on which they intend to set up houses for all members. Members who moved in during the first phase like pay Sh2,000 per month. Sh200 goes to savings and Sh1,800 going towards offsetting the cost of construction. The payment for the houses is spread over seven years.

A woman has been arrested in the Kenyan coast after spiking his drink, and stealing Sh1.7 million from his bank account.

24-year-old Beatrice Mueni Mbiu had been on the run since September 8 when the incident occurred at a night club in Nyali, Kwale County.

“She took off alongside her two accomplices but we got her,” a DCI detective told Capital FM News, “she will be charged on Monday even as we seek the other two.”

The detective said the suspect had been positively identified by the victim.

According to police, the woman first spiked the man’s drink then stole his phone which she used to transfer Sh1.7 million from his bank account.

Detectives said they relied on the club’s CCTV images and footage to identify and trace the suspect.

Drink-spiking is common in night clubs frequented by commercial sex workers in major towns including Nairobi and Mombasa where they target both locals and foreigners.

Africa is filled with amazing talents, that goes without much debates.

There have been instances where young people have demonstrated unmatchable skills like a Nigerian man who used pencils to create an amazing 3D drawing.

A video of a young boy has added to the repositories of Africans whose works have found visibility online.

In the clip, the young boy showcased the contraption he made with carton boxes.

When asked what it is, the boy said it an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM).

He demonstrated how it works as new naira notes dashed out of a hole to the floor.

On one hand, he held what looked like the battery that powered the machine.

His creation became known months after yet another Nigerian kid did something similar but with a different body design that mimics the real ATM.

Meanwhile, TUKO.co.ke earlier reported how a 14-year-old Nigerian boy, named Praise Kelechi, showed off his improvisational skill of using cartons to create robots and other superhero costumes.

In an interview with BBC, the boy, while, displaying the Iron Man suit replica he made, said he was worked on it before the lockdown but had more time to perfect it as school was on a forced holiday.

He gave this piece of advice:

“I want to tell the world that no matter how rich or poor you may be, you can still be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want. It does not matter the resources available or not, you can just be who you are.”
