    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]

    See this thread. Although, I must admit that the count has gone up for me, er, a bit...

    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...
