Go to a discount shoe store and buy a good pair of loafers on sale. Get two boxes. Send one shoe in one box with a card that says, “Now that I have one shoe in the door let me introduce myself...” I know it’s an old gimmick but chances are if you haven’t had it pulled on you, then neither has the hiring manager.
Make sure the shoe fits you in case you get it back and want to use it again
Make sure it’s well polished and doesn’t smell.
Black is best.
Don’t send a high-heeled lady’s shoe because you may be sending a message about the wrong kind of job.
