Previously I made the mistake of collecting sneakers, I had about 15 pairs and I slowly retired them out of my wardrobe. I've changed the way I dress and have upgraded to suede shoes when I don't go to the office. So the sneakers are sitting in my shoe rack and it was a waste of money.

I use 4 pairs of athletic sneakers for the gym.

However, the formal/suuede wear is a fully functional arsenal. I have 7 pairs of allen edmonds, 2 bruno magli's, 3 johnston murphies. But my most prized are a pair of Church's I don't even wear them. I put them atop my shoe rack and admire them once in a while lmao.

I also stuck a deal with a local shoemaker and he fixes my collection. I have no plans of shopping again. If soles or anything else wear out, he fixes them. And I also got wooden shoe trees so that they last long.

Shoes are VERY important. There's absolutely no use in dressing well when standing on a pair of bizarre shoes, like converse, athletic sneakers or something. I don't like the look when I see down.

53, 1 pair with velcro straps instead of laces...but I can't remember when the last time was that I saw them. I have no clue where they are...though the back of the walk-in closet might be the first place to start looking.

Everything else is boots, 1 for dress, 1 for casual/motorcycle, and everything else is some type of work boot. The first two are many years old, they don't get much wear- I work hard for my livi...er, existence (can't call it a 'living' anymore since the freaking gov't is taking so much that there is barely anything left to live on).

Whats a "sneaker"? Who do you sneak up on? can you wear them to work? How about to the gym? Do you need a license like 007, Licensed to Sneak.
