    Now that I think of it, I think A. owns a nice tie from C., or is my memory faulty?

    Or are you coming out with a coffee table book of Shoes I Have Loved?

    I have role in the sequel, Shoes I Have Loved, and Lost.

    I only have three lines, though.

    Not very long, because my lines are in SMS texting code. For example, instead of "Lobb," it is "LBB."

    Not true. Several Chat-Bite bespoke from my honeymooon visit to Paris as well as a healthy selection of RTW.

    That's damn nice for a bum boy.

    Did you get the RJman collar? It takes the point poke right out.

    Oh dum fq can you ask your Idol to post the least 5 pair of shoes that are worth over $1000, please? BTW I dont see a single response from your Idol. BTW I am talking of luxury fashion not cheap fashion. BRING IT ON.

    Who bought the vintage Lobb skating boots for $34,000? That is serious coin, and only a ninja shoemaster mofo is stomping around in those boots.

    This will amaze most of you, but if you recall that auction, guess who wound up with the trees?

    [​IMG]

    Check it out...far right, inside the RM Williams...yeah, that's right.

    Hah!

    You ask, "You have the trees, vox, but not the $34,000 boots?"

    I answer in all seriousness, "If boots don't cost $35,000, I'm not even looking."

    Bill, I know it's after five on a friday, but you're not making any sense any more. That post makes my head hurt.

    Which one...the one about the $34K vintage Lobbs?

    Three-piece boot trees in the pic are from the same guy.

    Got the trees. Not the boots.

    But do all your RTW shoes have lasted hinged trees? That is the Holy Grail.

    No, just a few of my 888 EG/RLPLs and the Saint Crispin's.

    Do Louis Vuitton do lasted hinged trees? Or do they rely on the customer's feet to fill this role?

    I sort of got that much. But you're quoting Daskb while posting about the Lobbs, showing pictures of $300 boots and claiming only to buy $35,000 boots... It's all too much. Or maybe I'm the one who needs a drink...

    Can someone translate this for me? I'm dumm. You somehow got the A Distinguished Asshole's custom boot trees from his $35k listing, but not the boots - someone else has those, you put them in your $300 RM Williams, and are showing a pic next to your $210 Red Wings? What?

    Get a spine. Can't you decide anything for yourself?

    I don't think Portnoy has 400 pairs of shoes. In fact, I doubt he has more than 300. More than 200, no question.
