    Looks like this Christmas I got a couple pairs of boots, and I'm starting to have quite a growth in the boot department as a result.


    So my question is, mainly because I'm just curious: what's your boot to shoe ratio?

    Oh, by the way Merry Christmas everybody!

    Good lord, just checked mine, and it looks like I'm at 60% boots, 40% shoes (not counting sneakers).

    In shell 9 total and 6 are boots so running ~70% boots to shoes. In calf, CXL, etc. about the same ratio. Unless your counting hunting, hiking, wading and snow boots then it is much higher. Boots are a good thing, sounds like you had a good Christmas so far [​IMG]

    For dress situations, 60% boots, of which there is a 50/50 distribution between balmoral and derby.

    Three pairs of boots and only one pair of shoes, but I also don't have a job where I would actually need dress shoes.

    Focusing solely on leather footwear that is appropriate with wool slacks in an office setting, I'm at three pairs of boots and six of dress shoes. Plans in the works for a burgundy shell gunboat and a black calf wholecut... but otherwise it's boots dang near exclusively until I get sick of them.

    Probably have 25 pairs of boots (mainly Alden, Red Wing, RRL) to 40 pairs of shoes (mainly Alden, Ferragamo, Barker Black, Church's, Brooks Brothers) not counting beater boots I keep in the garage for riding motorcycles and stuff.. Not sure how it turned out like that, but it just did..

    I have no aristocratic English house slippers or iGent's favorite Belgian slippers. And I do not think you would want to see pictures of my geta, drivers, etc.
