Hey budapest12...no problem!  At least the Giants have some recent Super Bowl wins.  Tony Romo can only beat himself!

 

See Ya,

No Doubt income is a game changer rydenfan!  I'm curious if the members of this forum with a large shoe collections have any type of special insurance coverage?  Between my Alden Collection and my cowboy boot collection I've amassed a vast investment that is not replaceable.  How does one go about trying to protect that investment insurance wise, specially when some items are worth way more than what you paid?  In particular cowboy boots with ultra rare hides have gone up value wise 10 times more than what I paid for them, and still going up.  They are somewhat like rare art that escalates over the years.  Looking for ideas on how to protect that investment.

 

See Ya,

Steve

I agree...my Alden collection did not begin until my last kid graduated college!

 

See Ya,

Make sure you have enough personal property loss protection (or a separate rider), and inventory them. Pics never hurt either.

Interesting that there's very little correlation between income and size of collection.  While many have remarked about the relatively high concentration of income at the higher bracket, there's little evidence that these people own more shoes than other income tiers.  I would have expected to see a positive correlation between income and collection, esp given the sample population of Alden fanatics.

I know these don't get a lot of love on here but, I've been wearing them quite a bit lately.



For me they work very well on the biz casual side, probably wouldn't like them with a suit and I'm not too into black with jeans(personal preference) so I can see the argument for lack of versatility. But black shell has a nice glow.

Crowdsourcing this. I chew through the heels on my Indys like crazy (3-4 months avg). I can't find any cobblers in my (new) area that carry the asymmetrical heel. Can I source these anywhere myself? Anybody have similar experiences?
