    For 2006:
    3 VASS/3 EG /3-4 LOBB/Assorted lesser shoes

    I have 3 VASS on order. Considering a pair or two of St. Crispin's. Contacted Tony Gaziano regarding bespoke.

    All because of finding SF/AAAC in 2005. Before that probably a couple of lesser shoes a year with Ferragamo being the highpoint[​IMG] .

    And don't get me started on Attolini, Kiton, etc. My wife is pulling her hair out.


    ok, ragdoll needs help too. my guess is that's close to 10K in shoes. [​IMG]

    Of course, I'm not in the least bit nosy, but mind me asking, what style are those?
    Pictures would be even better. (Again, I'm not nosy at all.)

    My purchases are streaky but I've got roughly 25 pairs of dress shoes now so I'm getting more selective. Because of the knowledge gained here I'll probably buy a few pair more of EG, some Grenson from Bennies, my second pair bespoke, and possibly a G&G or Cleverley soon. I'm going to look for Lobbs to go on sales at Neimans as well.

    I'm intrigued with the decor in the background of some of these submitted photos[​IMG]

    Too much temptation from Grapevinehill, Asprey Sample Sale, and the a. testoni store closing for me to resist...

    Approximately 11 pairs in total, the majority being Crockett and Jones for Polo, a C&J shell cordo blucher, a few Edward Green, and a lone a testoni and Lidfort. I've managed to avoid the latest round of the Barney's Warehouse sale.

    I'm slacking on dress shoes this year, two pairs of EGs, one pair of C&Js, and a couple pairs of chelsea boots (one CT and one other)

    I've spent most of my time buying trainers and more casual boots etc, probably bought 8-10 pairs of those this year.
