I don't go very often to malls, but when I do I actually enjoy the shoes--- I collect boots, so the shoe stores are a place to inspect new arrivals. I also like shoe stores because their employees usually leave me alone, unlike other stores in the mall. I also get to sit down and remove my old shoes and let my feet breathe--- even walk barefoot if I desire, although I don't because the floors aren't clean. But I can order boots online now, so there is even less reason to go to the mall.

Malls do me in. It became worse when I worked at one for a few years. Sensory overload every day, and I kept picking up colds and flu.

I got a job at the mall near me just to get out of the house and kind of break out of my shell a little. I wanted to lock myself in the bathroom until closing during the holidays though. :? Too many loud noises, rude people, and it got REALLY warm inside. No bueno for me.

I never go to malls anymore. You can buy everything you can get there online, the food is crappy and overpriced, it's loud and noisy, and there are people and germs everywhere.

Occasionally there's something like an ice rink or movie theater, but I never go skating, and I can go to a non-mall theater that's just as close (more expensive, though)

I suppose if I was at all concerned about fashion I'd want to try clothes on before buying, but my usual repertoire of T-shirts and shorts/slacks, it doesn't really matter. :)

Malls - overwhelming. I tend to focus on the plant life or get bogged down observing all the visual clutter. It's not always an unpleasant feeling. It can be quite fun, but I don't wish to get lost. Wandering through crowds makes me feel like people are walking right towards me and about to collide unless I move. If there is a lot of noise it can be a problem.

Although considering the fact I need new glasses, going to any store not only gives me the typical anxiety but I get eyestrain as well.

Being in MN, I have a chance to go to an especially large mall, but I don't feel any modivation to go there...

Shoes: I have problems finding just the right fit that doesn't cause pain somewhere. Often I find myself making a tough call between two or more pairs.
