    So, I figured since everyone's been posting their shoe collections, I might as well post mine too. Included are AE Concords in Black and Chestnut, AE MacNeils in Black shell cordovan, AE Sanfords in black, and J&M split toes.

    Nice work with the rug. [​IMG]

    You should save this photo and compare it with what you have a year from now... Shoe addiction is a dangerous thing.

    Haha, yeah, I can imagine. All of those shoes were purchased within the past year. I have a pair of the Loake Chelsea boots that are on their way and as soon as I try those on (experimenting with English sizing) I am going to order a pair of the Loake Twynings. I've also sent a deposit to Schubert and will probably be measuring myself tonight and putting my order in tomorrow. So, there's an additional 3 pairs of shoes in the coming weeks. Also, in September I will be starting work at a law firm as an associate (just graduated law school) so I will probably treat myself to a new pair of shoes then - I'm thinking some C&Js from plal as a treat or a pair of Tramezzas I've had my eye on on ebay.

    As a fellow SF member with a majority of AE's
    you get my endorsement. True, we can't claim the prestige or the extra digit on the price tag, but we're probably more likely to track across a muddy lawn, that's the trade off.[​IMG]

    When I find something I like, I stick with it. [​IMG] I find AEs to be comfortable, well made, and nice looking (though, I think I need a couple of pairs of more modern-ish shoes). I also appreciate the fact that they are made right here in the United States, though this is not necessarily a deal maker or breaker to me - just a nice little bonus.
