this is, after all, a shoe porn thread and damage thread. Any douche with enough cash can buy a rack full of Edward Greens and John Lobbs or bespoke shoes. For collectors, NOS pairs, samples and vintage shoes are more inspiring -- like livings examples from the past, things you cannot buy or have made in the same way anymore.

 

We all have diffrent taste, I like the douchebags more then biggrin.gif

Some old and dusty shoes.

How do you come up with this "$100- $200" cost? It's simply not true and a very muddled process to figure out.

What are your variables? Moo has posted some very nice shoes over the last year plus. Some of them were purchased used, though. SO, is it RETAIL cost new or is it the price the poster paid if they were used?

What about gifts? What if the poster paid nothing because they were a gift?

What if they were bought on a clearance sale? Retail or Sale cost?

So, unless we disqualify any used, sale, or gifted shoes... For Vintage shoes, it would seem to make the most sense to translate their original cost to current dollars. ALSO, one would have to consider what the shoe market is today vs what it was when the shoes were manufactured. What percentage of the average person's income was spent on a pair of shoes and so on.

After, we assign a cut-off point on price (ie: all shoes posted here MUST have cost over $X), we should require a photo be posted of the receipt for the shoes to be absolutely sure!

OR, we could just drop this as a silly requirement and/ or point of argument and spend more time posting!

I think the battle over the original meaning of the term "damage" in this thread has already been fought, won, lost, reenacted, and analyzed by e-historians. NORE retired from the field of the battle, his supply lines cut, cavalry lost in the wilderness, reserves exhausted.

And that's why I dont go deep in the discussion, i'm to lazy to write that much.

Friends again smile.gif So you know i'm not talking about your posts. I really enjoy watching your shoe collection (something new for me) I think it's fun because I learn something here everyday about shoes from the past that impresses me. I need to learn more about shoe-history happy.gif

I ALWAYS disagree with my friends. People you agree with 100% are boring and un-challenging. I have always found respectful banter to be quite enjoyable and stimulating. Thank you sincerely for your postings, my friend!

True that! But how many shoes do you have? You post new shoes quit alot, or it's the same shoes that come here again from time 2 time?

I am an addict! As the father of 3 young kids and a happy husband, I decided to discard all the other "hobbies" that would keep me out of the house and away from them. With the Vintage Shoes, I can involve and include them. My 8-year old daughter can ID any exotic leather. From gator to croc to lizard to hornback to shell to ostrich and so on. My 4-year old son's favorite shoes are some NOS 40's wingtips i got him. NOTHING better than involving and including the kids.

To answer your question, I have around 65 pairs of my own at home right now, but probably only 40 that are "Permanent". The rest get worn a coupla times then moved out to make room for new.

This is why I like Moo's posts so much! Like me, he is always "trying out new material", but he's also a tough guy to satisfy so he "loves 'em and leaves 'em" more often than not.

I'm sure you get pissed when the little buggers accidentally step on your vintage shoes. One of the many reasons I hate children.
