    Gosh, those Crocolaides may be the first shoe to take me back from my shoe-buying hiatus (3 years).

    May well be worth getting back on the slippery slope for those Nuke!

    GreasyM, nice job!

    Well, fortunately, what I thought was going to be an expensive trip to the dentist this morning ended up being substantially less expensive (thought it was going to be root canal / crown, ended up being filling covered by insurance).

    So that leaves (no pun intended) a good bit of cash free to spend :). Or maybe I should keep saving for a watch.. decisions decisions!

    Got a couple of Carminas in there (about half the collection :embar:)

    You come on this site regularly and haven't bought a pair of shoes in 3 years. That is impressive...

    I've got thirty some odd pairs of G&G, EG, Carmina, Vass, Corthay, Aldens, etc. I can barely rotate them to be honest!

    I find I am drawn the most to shell and suede. So easy to care for them.

    Mate, those Crocolaides would fit right in there. Very nice collection Nuke :slayer:

    I get what you say about the next watch acquisition, I'm on the same trip. Though it's an itch talking longer to scratch meh

    Ha I am fairly OCD about my care regimen. I use reno and shine after each wear. All my shoes look abnormally new. Plus, I only wear each about 12 times a year :).
