Too many. I just received like another 8 pairs of Nike sneakers and 2 pairs of hiking shoes. But I get most of my shoes and clothes for free. I have a cousin who buys crazy amount of fashion and designer stuff. He'll buy every color of something and wear it couple of times and then throw or give it away. I find it extremely wasteful so I'll occasionally take the stuff and wear it.
Hmmm one old pair of shoes I use for mowing the lawn, my current pair which is probably in worse shape than the lawn mowing ones, so I should replace them, then I got winter boots, then I got REAL winter boots (Sorels), then preppy shoes for church, and then at work I got slippers I switch into. Being in shoes all day makes my feet super sweaty so it's nice to have slippers and just kick them off to let the feet cool off.
Oh and a few pairs of sandals, if that counts.
Damn, and I used to make fun of my mom for having so many shoes. Then again I don't need a dedicated suitcase for shoes when I travel. I just bring whatever shoes I happen to be wearing when I leave the house, and maybe sandals if it's a hot spot.
15 or so in the daily rotation - 2pair trail runners, 2 pair flip-flops, 5 pairs of running shoes, a few pair of casual shoes for jeans/work, 2 pair of gym shoes, and a couple pair of J's & Dunk SB's when I'm looking to floss.
Time to get rid of my 6-pair of Allen Edmonds - havent worn wool slacks or a sport coat in over 2yrs now.
An absurd number. Primark (discount clothing store) a few years ago had their converse-knockoff canvas sneakers on sale for $2 a pair, and I got carried away. Had to get every available colour, and then a backup pair for every available colour. (This is pretty much how I behave in sandbox games also - I find a home base and start hoarding multiple copies of all avaiable loot items in the game - I wonder if games are good ways of revealing psychological issues? My dislike of public transport in the real world is akin to my refusal to use 'fast travel' in games, come to think of it...it's immersion-breaking)
Since I stopped cycling and took to walking everywhere, I notice I go through pairs far, far more quickly than I used to. They don't last more than 6 months a pair. (And I get a weird feeling of satisfaction when I throw the worn-out shoe-carcass away - is that just me?)
I also have 'smart shoes' for formal occasions, which I never wear and find impossible to walk in.
1 pair black Adidas BoostHD sneakers
1 pair grey Keen Revel III winter/hiking boots
1 pair brown Keen Austin summer walking shoes
Sneakers is for when I manage to drag my out of shape ass to the gym. They're super springy and bouncy which is good for my crappy back and knees, and feel great when I'm on the crosstrainer. Winter boots I've had a few years now and they're getting a bit worn. The Austins I bought this past spring, and they're pretty fricken great. They look awesome too I must say, most elegant shoes I ever owned I think.
I like Keen. My feet must be kinda paddle-shaped I guess, because I need wide shoes, which they provide.
Technically I also have a pair of Adidas basketball-style sneaker I bought a whole bunch of years ago now, but they're just way too tight for me to actually use so I'm going to donate them some day. They look wicked though, which is why I've been reluctant to get rid of them.
1 pair of White's Smoke Jumper work boots
1 pair of Sorel Caribou boots (35+ years old...just hang on a nail in the garage)
1 pair of New Balance hikers...wear for yard work and such
1 pair of New Balance trainers
1 pair of SAS walking shoes (tennis shoe style)
1 pair of Hush Puppies slip ons...water proof(ish) for walking the dogs
2 pairs of Finn Comfort walking shoes. (as close to dress as I have)
1 pair cheap sandals
2-3 pairs of flip-flops
2-3 pairs of "water shoes"
Pairs...have several singles. When you start cutting things apart, some of them get separated. Got a spare femer if anyone's interested.
Maybe 1 that works. Messed up my feet with age and 20+ years doing cardio. With they gym being closed for 2 months and my feet slightly better, you'd think I would have booked with my ortho again...You would think...:rolleyes;
I'm a bit of a woman with shoes. I'm probably up to 18-20 pairs. I wear dress shoes to work, so there's multiple colors there, I have sneakers that have different purposes, casual dress shoes, high-end flip flops, and other various ones. Is that bad?
