For those of you who flip through shoes quickly, how do you determine what you are selling? Fit, obviously, but what if the shoes fit well?
The reason I ask is because I'm seriously contemplating selling my Cigar PTB. Now with my fourth pair of Cigar coming in (Cigar LWB, NST, Cap Toe Boot) I just don't see the need for them. With many pairs in the rotation they get worn probably twice a month.
The problem is the patina that has developed on them is amazing and I'm a bit selfish and want to keep them..
I think this pretty much answers your question, but i can relate where I don't want to let go of pairs even if they don't get worn often
PROS: Less shoe congestion, money in pocket (or towards something else you'd use more often), happy wife (perception that you're selling something; even though you'll buy something else), easy sell (supply & demand is in your favor)
CONS: Dat patina (will be sorely missed I'm sure), hard to replace
I guess if you have a massive shoe closet & sitting on $$ shoes going unused is no issue, then really no harm in keeping them. But the logical answer (based off what you wrote) would be to sell them
