    Zippy,
    On row #2 what is between the #4 PTB and Suede NST. IT looks like a Ravello or #4 boot possibly but it is not listed

    Dear lord, Zippy and MrDV.

    Now we know where all the money went from the banking collapse 6 years ago.

    Holy smokes what a collection Zippyh!! I'm in complete and utter awe... 52 pairs of Aldens if I counted correctly. Not sure I dare to post a pic as it would pale in comparison to both yours and MrDV's. Well done my friend!

    Zippy I may have missed this, but what size are you? You know shoes are for wearing not storing right? Prehaps I could remedy that somewhat.[​IMG]

    Yours isn't shabby. Tough question. If I had to pick 3, I'd go #4 boots, ravello wing tip boots, and maybe the #8 punch cap boots.. You could ask me again later and I'm not sure I'd pick the same three. I'd probably still go with the #4 boots since I like that color so much. How about your faves?
