    There appears to be a very real propensity for our pets to damage our treasured possessions.

    This sort of thing has prompted me to border on anal retentiveness.

    I have several pairs of EG that were around 420 gbp on sale. I have looked at more expensive shoes and liked them, but struggled to feel comfortable paying the 600 - 900 GBP price

    I have a pair of Handgrade Sutor that someone gave me...what's that run? $1K? A pair of Church Consuls that are about $600 and a pile of Gucci/Ferragmo that run in the $400/500 range.

    Bear in mind, I didn't actually spend any real money on any of that...[​IMG]

    $1,200 for a pair of Lobbs I believe. I know I would spend more, but the MTO maker I am after won't be visiting Los Angeles so I guess I won't be spending more just yet.

    Shoes - two pairs of BNIB EG Chelseas, for which I paid about $325 a pair (or so) - definitely under $400. Budget was tight for a month or so afterwards, but oh, so worth it. I wore a pair yesterday.

    Other (SF-approved) "good" shoes would be my C&J Canterbury brogues, and my PS spectators. I paid about $200 for each (PS specs were seconds).

    Everything else (AEs, etc) I have cost me $150 or less.

    GBP400 on some C&J handgrades. They was full price from Jermyn St. I've never been in EG or Lobb as I think 400 is my ceiling.

    I bought 1 pair of CJ Brunswick in brown and 1 pair of CJ Rosemoor in black at the CJ store on Jermyn Street in one transaction last summer.

    It was by far the most I've ever spent on a single pair, let alone two. And now, spending that much doesn't seem that extravagant, especially compared to a lot of you ballers.

    EG Midford purchased from Browns. Easily $900 and add on an $80 UPS import fee (which I haven't paid) and you're in the ballpark. Never again.

    My new cap is $600.
