In a recent post in the Allen Edmonds Appreciation thread, a fellow SFer said he had 35 pairs of AEs, and considers himself a typical SF member. I wondered if that's really typical (for instance, I only have 18 pairs of shoes across all brands), so I thought I'd post a poll to get an idea. Feel free to respond with your count by brand, or your total, if it doesn't fit into any of the possible answers.

Edited to add: when I say shoes, I really mean shoes and boots: my 18 pairs include 8 pairs of boots. (I probably should have called it "How many pairs of footwear do you own?", but that just didn't sound right...)

I have a bit less than 20. I try to get a pair of each top tier brand, seems like fun to me. I'm missing an Edward Green and a Corthay.

In terms of dress shoes and boots, I think it's a bit under 20. I'm consolidating, though. I should probably sell off my brown calf oxford dress shoes as despite Styleforum's best efforts, I really prefer black shoes to brown for wearing with a suit (with the exception of brown suede oxfords.)

I have a brown pair and black to that I wear to work. Nothing fancy but they are Hudson because I love the fit and are very stylish. The carpark at work has shingle everywhere so every time I walk across, which is often to get from 1 building to another during the day, my shoes get absolutely wrecked! Then I have a spare dark brown pair at home which I wear at special occasions.

Including sneakers, sandals, etc or are we talking strictly CMW?

I didn't include any of my sneakers, sandals, etc.; I was thinking more of dress/casual shoes/boots.
That's what I figured, if leaving out things like Sperry top siders, trainers, hiking boots and sticking with basically GYW, handsewns and similar then I'm probably under 30 but I started less than 2 years ago, I think my AE's should be around 20.

If I could fit into other brands or had access to try them on I'd bet the ratio of AE to non AE would be higher. I'm going to include ones that I currently have and plan to sell because technically I still have them...

I can see adding at least 10 in the next year or two.

I know what you mean; I just fell down the rabbit hole this year (joined SF in February) and have gone from mostly wearing trainers and having 3 pair of dress shoes* to only wearing trainers to the gym and having 18 pairs of dress shoes/boots, with more being contemplated...

(* 2 pairs of the dress shoes I started with were donated to the Vinnies this summer as they'd been replaced by much nicer shoes.)

Not including sneakers/trainers, I am at at 25, but I do plan on adding a couple luxury sneakers, and I think those should count here.

Not a problem, @EZB - you're the one who's counting; you get to decide what counts. :-D

Break down 11-15 and 16-20 IMO.

11 seems quite different than 18.

Fair point, but since most of the existing votes are already in the 11 - 20 bracket - and I have no way of knowing who should fall into which of the new brackets (or even who voted in that bracket apart from myself) - I think it's too late to change it.
