Parking Garage With Shoes

I'm riding an elevator in a downtown parking garage.
This is the control panel.
It has pictures of shoes; Women are Even, Men are Odd. A sexist commentary?
(Floor five is supposed to be a cowboy boot, btw)
WTF is going on?
Does your city have shoes in it's elevators?

What floor am I on?

Does the average person recall shoe styles better than numbers?
I can't imagine a drunken tourist remembering "sneaker" more readily than "three", unless they are a woman.
Another sexist commentary?

Just one more strange detail of this unusual city.
It's rather funny, and now that I know about it the St. Mary's Street Garage has become Parking With Shoes in my mind.
