They are Tricker's Kensington.

Crossover from the WAYWRN: Can we start/restart using spoilers?

I feel like this would take years to achieve...and I hardly think it would look like AE's bourbon.

 

I'd say that if you have enough black polish left on your brush to alter the color of your walnut shoes, you are using too much polish to begin with.

I don't know if it's my browser or what, but at least half of the time I try to use a spoiler, it doesn't work.  patch[1].gif

It is becoming apparent that more and more folks are getting their collections up to $20,000 to $30,000 in value . . . but some are still showcasing them in plastic containers, over the counter shoe racks, or some other contraption that does not carry the same value as the shoes themselves.

 

I remember back in the 1990's when I started collecting films on DVD, and I chose to set aside an extra $1.00 per film for the cost of having the collection in an ever expanding walnut case.  In the end I had collected over 5000 DVDs, and then began giving many away as the new technology entered as a choice.

 

Perhaps adding $30 to $50 per pair of shoes to be set aside for the housing of $350 to $650 shoes and boots would present the total package in showcasing AE shoes and boots.

 

 

IDEAS:

 

A relative small collection, but certainly expandable horizontally.

 

One of my favorites and certainly expandable.

 

 

Even good suits need to have a nice bedroom showcase

 

With the ability to showcase 60 pair, this selection is something to grow into.

 

Can showcase 24 of the best.

 

 

 

 

Like fine hardback books showcased, adding a proportional cost to the price of a good book, pair of shoes, or even fine wine - is much better than sticking precious items on the floor, in cardboard boxes, or other cheap means to store them.

 

I'm not suggesting it is easy to think ahead about the housing of shoes, but it can be done next time you choose to buy two pair and go with one, by saving the cash toward a showcase.

 

All my best,


David

 

It isn't a matter of cost but real estate. Floor footprint is at a premium for those of us with nomadic lifestyles. Having individual cubbies for shoes is glaringly inefficient from a space-planning perspective. Hell, I don't even have enough room for my wardrobe, let alone shoes.

 

Otherwise, I would love to have my shoes in something like those pictures.

I have been thinking about some sort of shoe storage device...but then I think that I'd just rather put the money towards more shoes!

Not a bad price! haha. Just spin the wheel and be surprised everyday at what shoe you'll be wearing!

 

I'd rather put the $70 towards more shoes! nod[1].gif

Uh did anyone notice the Neumora is discontinued and now theres the MORA 2.0, if its the same as before I think im gonna pass out from sheer glee
post #27719 of 47151

That looks like a rather good and space-efficient way to store shoes.

 

I'd be seriously tempted to get some if they were horizontal (like the old spinner tower cases for CDs), and if you could stack a few of them on top of each other.

Enjoy,

Thanks David. Are they still making the Park Avenues in 6? IMHO the four eyelet create a vamp that looks disproportionately long.
