I have a pair of dark brown Prada buckle-back boots, a pair of zip of Mocha Costume National waxed leather boots, a pair of old Donna Karan Signature balmorals (when they still had shoes made), a pair of Prada laceups, a pair of John Varvatos distressed leather laceups (these and the Costumes are the only leather bottomed shoes I'll wear with jeans), a pair of ancient Clarks Desert boots, and about 2 dozen pairs of sneakers of various sorts. Of course, I have running shoes, approack shoes, hiking boots, and other technical gear, but I'm not counting those.

Brown suede Hush Puppy slip ons Nike Shox running shoes Footjoy Classics brown bicycle toe golf shoes Footjoy Classics black with brown saddle golf shoes I am sorely lacking in a good pair of dress loafers and something in shell cordovan, as you can see. That will be my next area to address.

tdial, If you are the weakling in the gym, then I am the weakling's weaker friend, or something. C&J Handgrade Aintree, tan C&J Handgrade Weymouth, Brown (in the mail) C&J benchgrade Suede half-brogues, tobacco suede Churchs (shudder) brogues, dark brown Cheaney (double-shudder) pebblegrained, split-toe ankle boots, medium-darkish brown Converse hi-tops, blue That is it for good shoes that are worthy of publication. My collection is small but growing. I think my next purchase will be C&J Saviles in dark brown. I wish they offered them in a dark brown suede. When I was in the C&J store on Jermyn Street (purchasing the Aintrees) I demanded they offer more handgrades. I may have pounded my fist on the counter for emphasis. I can't recall.

Wow... seeing how so many people have so many shoes, I am embarrassed to say I only have 5 dress shoes, plus 1 sandals, 1 flipflops, 1 (or two?) sports shoes... but then, I am only 16 years old. I have them only this year, actually... once I am financially independent, I should be able to exceed jerry... WJTW

One more recent purchase (from Bennie's): Grenson "Rugby" brogue cap toe in mahogany (box: "dark brown calf oxford") 8002/27 I may have a few more shoes than Will, but I think he beats me for consistently having only very top quality. Ken Pollock PS-by the way, the hint I dropped in this thread on 15 Aug. 2004, at 1:54, about big shoe news coming soon, was right after Louie told me about just purchasing a load of English shoes that he was not previously familiar with, a brand named Grenson.
