    How many pairs of footware have you bought in the last year?

    I'm thinking 15. Can we add this to the list of how to know you're an addict? *Doesn't know how many pairs of shoes he/she buys*

    Geebus.

    Then I think about how many I've bought in the last calendar year.... hahahah

    Last year at the Nordy Anniversary sale I got my walnut Strands and it was on from there. I'm probably about the same.... ops.

    Have any of you guys put a single leather sole on a casual shoe, such as the Wilbert? Is this considered tacky or strange?

    I'll take the bait:

    2014: brown Sixth Avenues, chili Daltons, brown McGraws
    2015: brown suede Fifth Avenues, brown MacNeils
    2016: bought: brown grain Dundees, on order/trying on: oxblood Strands, burgundy or tan penny loafer (Patriot, Kenwood, or possibly Rancourt)

    Do you golf?? I feel like an outsider in this thread. Golf is my ultimate addiction (sorry shoes, it's true.) There's a pair of walnut strand golf shoes on the bank that I have to hurry and skip past every time I look at that site.

    Haha I was waiting for this to appear :)

    The fact that you can do that speaks wonders. I'd have to answer from my closet to make sure I didn't miss a pair haha

    I do, but suck. My old golf shoes kicked the bucket during a golf tournament a few weeks ago. I justified it as there is no way I'd find a pair of regular golf shoes for cheaper than those.

    Considering I purchased my first pair of allen edmonds shoes less than 365 days ago I know I have a problem. Not a bad problem to have though. With my rotation and the recraft option I should have a lifetime of shoes. Not to mention the ever growing part of it.
