No Aldens on this wall. They're on the North wall.

Bill, that's an "EVERY FREAKIN SHOE AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET WARDROBE".
Wonderful stuff!

1) I have no idea what you criminals are talking about - Vox's pic is still up.

2) Here is the pic for posterity. Now stop complaining.

Well, lord knows I love me some Shoe Fairy - but one suspects that, to at least some extent, he is a collector of shoes moreso than a wearer of shoes - and SF is the richer for it.

Hold up, acecow just PM'ed me some shit he photographed after breaking into Vox's leafy Greenwich estate (he had to grapple with Kimbo Slice, Vox's personal bodyguard, before getting clobbered by the Iron Sheik in Vox's "mud room" (that no mud has ever touched.))

With that, I give you...teh East Wall:



And...South Wall...



Whilst wrestling Iron Sheik, acecow was flung toward the North Wall, landing squarely between the shelves, colliding with all shoes constructed with "gemming." Naturally, they all exploded. Shoe parts everywhere...Much like an "Allen Edmonds" factory tour, if you will.

The plot thickens...

Felt it was worth a cross-post for those who didn't see that thread (and note my proper attribution). But thanks.

Masterfully done!

tl;dr but did this ever happen e.g. mafoofan wearing only one specific pair of shoes?

Collecting does not interest me and makes clothing look stupid (how many barely used things can you own before you look like you throw your clothes away after one wearing). I know some will say that, for example, I don't own any monks or jodphurs or loafers or etc etc.


My shoes wardrobe as of now


Black captoe oxford

Black chelseas

Black austerity brogued boots

Black wingtips

Black plaintoe derbies

Wine plaintoe derbies (got some blue in it, weird Corthay colour)

Whisky captoe zip boots

Brown captoes oxford

Brown plaintoe oxford (bicycle toe), might get rid of this one although it doesn't look bad.

Chocolate chukka boots

Grey double zip distressed boots

White dancing shoes

Black hi-top sneakers

White hi-top sneakers

White lo-top sneakers

Has this changed since 3 years now?

During my time in acquiring footwear, I limited myself to 10:
Black side-zip officer boots with a wedge sole
Black side-zip boots
White reverse kangaroo lace boots
Brown (chestnut) pull on boots (think MMM, but mine are Silent Damir Doma)
Black cap-toe oxfords
Black plaintoe derbies
*edit* Black plaintoe derbies (Forgot about these Raf Simons lol)
Black suede derbies
Nike flyknit in black (sequoia)

Out of the current 9 pairs, I can honestly say 3 of them I feel comfortable wearing in the office. Looks like I am missing a brown suede and leather (perhaps one with a medallion design or punched cap-toe).
Should have a pair of Guidi in gray coming soon.

So, after an edit, looks like I'll be with 11 instead of 10 frown.gif. Perhaps I should consider letting the Raf's go as they do not see much wear.
