I'm not exactly sure of the point of your comment, especially how it fits with the question that I posed to the group. Is it that I have too many shoes? That I should not be asking for input? Perhaps I am wrong, but I sensed some negativity and unhelpfulness in your comment. (Easily could be me... been one of those weeks.)
Guess I enjoy variety too much to limit myself to only 7 shoes. At some point I imagine a handful will get shipped off and I'll begin my shell addiction. In regards to holes, yes, I will always see new/other shoes and want to add them to my collection. I don't think that necessarily correlates with the size of my collection, rather desire, disposable income, other obligations, wife's willingness to look the other way when a new shipment arrives, etc.
Hahah if I had to cut my rotation down to 7 pairs, 5 would be Daltons.
