Velociraptors.

That too but also with the standard shoes. They often walk like after spending a few good hours horseback mounted if you know what I mean. Wifey says its because of wearing the flip-flops.

Ah, duck feet. American chicks walk the same way. No I kid you not, in London I can identify American women by this simple method.

This I have not noticed but it strikes me with the local ladies. You see a pretty, classy looking woman and then she starts to walk and the whole impression is ruined instantly.

American chicks walk from the knee downwards, and their feet land aiming outwards rather than straight ahead. Euros walk from the ar$e down... the further south in Europe you go, the higher their locomotion starts.

S'fact :)

Could mean a few things.

Since he said 'bothered' then probably the SMP* issue, which has been covered on this and other forums ad nauseam. But that is not limited to women.

If he said "amused" then like me he probably shakes his head at the vast majority whose clown-like gait double-discounts any points they might have scored with the shoes they choose. What's amusing is the chuff look they have thinking they're sexy when that clown gait makes them anything but.

Go ahead - count how many do / don't do this on a given day.

Ok, used to be amusing. Saw it too many time to register now, though I still notice and appreciate a lady who knows the TPO of clothing and knows how to walk. Nothing sexier....

Never saw that when I lived in the US, did see some pretty sexy women in downtown NY and LA with killer walks!

Yeah ok, there are breast guys, I'm a walk guy.

I'm glad I asked. The subsequent discussion has been fascinating! Now my wife thinks I am weird as I try to compare a walk with the description here. What has been seen, cannot be unseen.

me too +1 ^^^
I am actually more bothered by the tourists eating out in some more fancy places wearing shorts and sandals rather than locals who are often better and more tastefuly dressed but in the everyday setting tends to put on too much of the glitering stuff.
And I am constantly bothered by the way women walk here.


A case of singlets and shorts in HV? :mrgreen:

But seriously guys, I still fail to imagine all those different walks you all talked about...

Maybe I should Google or Youtube it around.

It's more the something does not fit the image category and it's pretty disturbing. It is to that extent that one of our past, French student (a girl) taught one of our female local colleagues how to walk for her wedding ceremony. You walk behind a lady on the street, pretty, sexy and she walks like crap. For a country that emphasizes on a harmony leaving out this important aspect is unacceptable. Personally I would sacrifice the courtesy campaign (it does not work anyway) for the sexy, classy walking campaign.
