It started with a pair of Indys for me last August, then it became a pair every month soon after.

I'm tempted on the snuff suede LWBs too, but I don't want it bad enough to pay retail. I will get a pair if it shows up on the irregular listings.

It means that he has about 30-40 pairs of shoes in his possession.

This, and also because Shoemart doesn't charge tax or shipping. The shoes really do it for me though in terms of quality and pricing. Prior to the Aldens, the only other nice pair of shoes I owned was a pair of AEs, and I thought the Aldens blew those out of the water.

I guess I'm not old enough to appreciate the super sleek lasts that the MCers love yet. I wear suits with my Barrie last Aldens all the time.

There is nothing else that I really want.. I have all the shells sans #4 and enough calf to be versatile for a while. Plus I'm running out of room doesn't help. I'm just going to save up for my Rolex and Panerai and revisit the footwear department in 2013. smile.gif

As long as I keep my closet and dressers clean and organized and stuff isn't spilling out all over the place, my wife doesn't care about my shoe/clothing fetish. I usually try to get rid of a pair of shoes for each I purchase so that helps with the effort.

My gateway drug into quality footwear was a pair of Allen Edmond Strands that I got back in the early spring of this year.

i hope you are a 8.5 biggrin.gif

Age has nothing to do with it, just personal preference and cohesiveness with one's overall style/fit.

Anyone looking to sell a pair of nst tanker boots? I'm a size 9.5, let me know
post #17925 of 122416
Holy crap I'm a small-timer. I have three pairs of boots, two pairs of sneaks. That's right, that means NO oxfords. And none of my boots are Aldens. *needle scratches off the record; room goes quiet; I slowly back out..."
