Well, since we are talking about closets.... I just started my collection last fall and I am kind of embarrassed as to what the obsession has become.  It started quite innocently with Allen Edmonds, then took an abrupt turn towards Alden and Carmina.  A coat closet was converted specifically for shoes.  There are 9 racks, with 2 boxes per rack. The shoes are kept in clear shoe boxes and kept covered in their bags.  I made laminated tags with the maker, style, color, last, size and photo.  Please be gentle with your comments, I know I have some issues to work out...<g>

Very respectable and admirable collection @Burzan! I'm always admiring your rotation on Instagram

I also am not believing this, @tifosi. It just can't be true.

I recognize that photograph on the upper left! Looks like you've hit the foot size lottery.

I used to keep them in the boxes but that was too cumbersome. I like keeping them in the dust bag. I can tell what the shoe is from the back (usually) and only once have I tried to put on one #8 shoe and one cigar shoe on in the morning!

I agree I like to be about to see my meager collection. I now however have acquired a major problem with that, an Oorang Airedale. This 2 yr old 97 pound rescue has taken the laces out of every pair of shoes/boots I have and eaten them. In spite of a head the size of a baketball and huge jaws, he has done no damage to the shoe or boots. They now reside on the upper closet shelf on the Banks cedar rack. Benjos loves me.

tried to delete this post when I could not figure out how to upload a picture, but couldn't.

You can select it, but not add it to your basket. Their website is lame. In any case, I've asked Robert and Jim about it a million times.

For many photos, I found attractive screenshots of the same model of shoe from the web. My apologies and my thanks for some amazing pictures out there.  Many shoes were purchased as gently used 2nds - some of you may recognize yours.  I'm a size 12.0D on the Brannock.  I could only wish to have the same foot size as @mdubs  in order to buy his cast-offs...that would be truly hitting the foot size lottery!

Awesome! One of the few posts I have shown the wifey. She appreciates the system and is now searching for a laminator... Yikes

Ah, ok.

My feet are the same length as Dubsy's, but sadly (for me), they are 3 full fittings wider (3e)

There are a few of us who wear that size. @Handcuffed @NAMOR @kwhitelaw among others. You're in good company!
