Anyone else have thoughts about slimming down their shell collection to maybe 2 or 3 pairs? I have 6 pairs currently (3 boots and 3 shoes), but only 2 pair get extensive wear now. Every time I think about selling off a pair I get cold feet though. Maybe it's silly, but each pair holds fond memories for me so I'm having a hard time letting them go. But having them just sit in a box in the closet seems silly too. First world problems I guess.

Anyway, cigar cap toes despite being hot as hell here today. My most loved pair.

Unlined snuff dovers while I impatiently wait for my first Ealdwine purchase to be delivered. I have a mental block about wearing brand new shoes, they tend to sit in my closet for awhile after I buy them. But I am so excited about this pair I think they might get their first wear later today!
