Now I know how you can afford so many styles of all those fine shoes! You buy only one of each shoe.


All of them are marvelous. Congratulations on more great selections.

aportnoy, you are assembling a very impressive collection of shoes. How do you find the time to wear all of them? Do you change shoes a few times a day?

P - are you buying the Lobbs on Ebay or on Madison or somewhere else? I'm trying to find a good source for Lobbs at discount, and Ebay rarely has my size.

Thanks, I really want the 2002s in black. They fit really well - the 2-eye derby works well. The Lobb store "located" 2 pairs for me @ $1100 each

(MSRP was $1050 way back when)
