I used to by them on a regular basis, now that I've settled on a particular style and maker I don't buy them nearly as much. My last pair of boots I purchased was probably close to 3 years ago. I am getting that itch though, really thinking about having a pair of Truman's or White's made up in Waxed flesh.

I buy every 3-6 months shoes and I don't know exactly how many pairs I have. I have a lot, over 60 is sure,maybe 100. But every shoes are with very good quality. For me quality is more important than quantity, although I have very big collection of shoes.

Anytime I can find a decent shoe in my very hard-to-find size. And I'll buy several pair at once.

Whenever the shoes I have start to wear out, I buy replacements. Sometimes I buy new shoes just because I like them.

I may go a year without buying any shoes, then I'll buy 3 or 4 at once. I did that this past week as Steinmart had a buy one, get one 50% off.

Casual shoes: 1x per year or so
Sports shoes: 1x per 6 months
Hiking boots: 1x per 2-3 years
Dress shoes: I usually buy a pair every 3 years or so, but keep wearing that pair for 10+.

I was just looking in Walmart yesterday but i didnt find any i like...

I take size 8 and I saw 8W which looked OK but I dont like the fact that shoes are NOT AS DEEP as they used to be.. They dont feel like they are on!!


The ones Im wearing now are starting to get little holes...... I do wanna get new ones but its not easy in todays world!!! (Where everything is worse and worse quality)

Lol. Way more than I should. Bought two pair yesterday, but one was for the boyfriend. I need to limit myself, but hard to pass up a good deal. I have over 200 dresses, so need shoes to match.
