how often are you disappointed when basking in the glory of your $5K shoe collection? Honestly, unless I were going to Mongolia, I would rather stay home than go anywhere else in the world. Awesome shoe collection or not, I'm just not a vacation kind of guy.
People have run studies that have shown that, for many people, the pleasure of planning and anticipating the vacation is greater than the pleasure of actually taking the vacation. I love planning and anticipating my shoe purchases - and I love wearing them when they arrive!
yep... shoes are a win-win for sure. I love the hunt, I love wearing them after the hunt, and I even love caring for them after wearing them.
