I wished to pose a question to the forum to see what everyone has to say. I also thought that it would be fun to post my shoe family one at a time. I will save you the task of counting, I currently have 21 pairs of shoes (16 in Shell Cordovan, 4 in Calfskin, and 1 in Suede) with four more on the way (3 in the mail, 1 on order). So, how many shoes is too many?

What do you think?
Nice collection. For some reason your #8 chukkas look particularly nice IMO.
Do you do anything special when taking your pictures? They have a unique feel to them.
I'm curious: which 3 or so get the most use? And, which 3 or so would you part with last?
