If You Could Only Have 1 Pair of Shoes... - Page 2

post #16 of 76
It's a trick question. You can't just have one pair of shoes because then they couldn't rest between wearings.

if it were a shoe from my collection, i would have to say santoni fam.
if my house was burning down and i could only save one pair that would be it.

but if it were a shoe i could own anywhere, from what ive seen, and price no concern,
ive seen alot of good shoes and materials and leathers that are just pure decadence, but nothing ive seen tops my favor for santoni fam certain models, and the one that i have the split toe fam in brown is just my ideal shoe right now.

under that criteria, I'd pick those burgundy wholecut w/medallion bespoke Graziano EGs that are floating in pics somewhere in this forum...those shoes still haunt me with their awesomeness.

Actually, I agree - I'd rather have a jhodpur than a chelsea because then there's no chance of the elastic wearing out...something like the EG Gresham:

Returned last night from a 12 day trip abroad. Packed very lightly. Two pair of shoes, chosen for versatility. On coming home I realized I had essentially only worn one pair: English-made brown-burgundy chukkas with Dainite sole. Perfect for walking, city or country. Buffed up they looked fine with slacks and jacket. Dusty they were fine with jeans. My other pair - very old shell cordovan AE loafers which I always travel with were almost totally unused in the 12 days. I didn't need them, or the many pairs left at home. Ergo, if I could only have one pair...

If I could have only one pair I'd know my time on earth was over.

Alan brings up this good point (which had crossed my mind). It would be a great way to identify the true shoe obsessives, who would--somewhat paradoxically--spend a great deal of time barefooted.

A pair of Doc Martens.

Bespoke for comfort and durability.

Oxford for versatility in style.

I dunno... my last experience with them was pretty, well, bad.

Burgundy cordovan wholecut, bespoke. It is durable, versatile, and easy to maintain.
