    Common fellas spill the beans and leave no dirty details! What's the damage on your most expensive pair of shoes...


    I'll show you mine if you show me yours.

    since our cats pissed and badly damaged all my AE's and English-made collection, now what's left is my KCole squared toe Reaction flex-bend ...

    There appears to be a very real propensity for our pets to damage our treasured possessions.

    This sort of thing has prompted me to border on anal retentiveness.

    I have several pairs of EG that were around 420 gbp on sale. I have looked at more expensive shoes and liked them, but struggled to feel comfortable paying the 600 - 900 GBP price

    I have a pair of Handgrade Sutor that someone gave me...what's that run? $1K? A pair of Church Consuls that are about $600 and a pile of Gucci/Ferragmo that run in the $400/500 range.

    Bear in mind, I didn't actually spend any real money on any of that...[​IMG]

    $1,200 for a pair of Lobbs I believe. I know I would spend more, but the MTO maker I am after won't be visiting Los Angeles so I guess I won't be spending more just yet.

    Shoes - two pairs of BNIB EG Chelseas, for which I paid about $325 a pair (or so) - definitely under $400. Budget was tight for a month or so afterwards, but oh, so worth it. I wore a pair yesterday.

    Other (SF-approved) "good" shoes would be my C&J Canterbury brogues, and my PS spectators. I paid about $200 for each (PS specs were seconds).

    Everything else (AEs, etc) I have cost me $150 or less.

    GBP400 on some C&J handgrades. They was full price from Jermyn St. I've never been in EG or Lobb as I think 400 is my ceiling.
