    just curious, after getting a few pair of shoes a few weekends ago, my wife said "you have way too many shoes". i counted, excluding athletic and sandals (i.e. dress, suede, boots you know what i mean) and i had 37 pair. is that a lot or what?

    You can be in trouble if you have more shoes than she does.

    I say it's outright shameful. (Unless you own five housesand thus have about 5 pairs of shoes per house). [​IMG]

    Bring her shoe shopping this weekend. Maybe something from Dolce & Gabbana.

    I suggest getting his, and hers at Manolo Blahnik. Yes, they do produce men's shoes.

    Dolce Gabbana shoes I find unfathomably uncomfortable but delightful to look at.

    If you are married, there is only one correct answer. One pair less than my wife. If you have more than her, time to donate some, if you have less than her, time to buy some more.

    I think I'm up to 31 pairs, and I have a couple more on the way. This is my cue, I think, to give some of the lesser-quality, less frequently worn pairs to charity...

    Who's got a favorite pair? Currently, my favorites are a pair of purple-and-white Converse All Stars. Cheap, cheerful, sporty and everyone loves them...

    I have 13 pairs. And yes, I do have a favourite.

    I bought Dior Homme high top white sneakers while I was in Paris in March. Those things are beautiful.

    I am craving the new Nike Terminators right now - the brown on white with NIKE in different colors on the back. I'd also like a pair of Nike Lasers - the problem (apart from the exorbitant prices) is that I prefer the pattern on the Cortez (Series 3) but much prefer the shape and style of the Dunk or Air. Decisions, decisions.

    Of course, my go to shoe is the classic black Chuck Taylor high top. But recently, my ankles have been bothered by their complete lack of support.

    I went to the Puma store in San Francisco yesterday, and I have to say the shoes are pretty.

    Isn't that the essence of women high fashion?
