Three. An old beat up pair for yard work and such. A black pair that I wear to work (we dress casual every day) and a white pair for everything else.

3 -

DC high tops, for the gym
Vans SK8-HI high tops
Vans checker slipons

I hardly ever wear the latter two actually so I might unload them at the humane society store next time I take a load there. I'm really a boots wearer----

Red Wing #882s
Alpinestar Newlands (my regular working boots actually)
Forma Voyage (fairly dressy for motorbike boots so that's what I wear them for)
Old SIDI MX boots I got from Wolverine Bates, indirectly (my main walking-riding-driving-around-town beaters)
Old flogged out Bellville ICWs that I use for mowing lawn etc.

Age: thirtysomething

I worked in a sporting goods store for a while in late high school and college and for some reason the employees used to get free backpacks all the time from vendors, Free samples/demos, almost always backpacks. It was the strangest thing. Why backpacks? who knows. Some were pretty high end too, I had (still have) a couple very nice ~$100 Jansport internal frame packs that still get used to this day 15+ years later. Most were the basic go-to-school day pack type. At one point I had amassed something like 35 of those stupid things and when bringing the next one home my dad made some comment about me becoming the Imelda Marcos of backpacks!

That's when I realized it was time to load up a box to donate to my old grade school.

One. They are worn for fishing only. Canvas boat shoes, actually, great for wading in the creeks.
No, I don't wear hip boots or waders. If you slip and fall, those things can fill with water and drag you down. Canvas shoes and heavy socks is all I have ever worn when wading.
I am 75. Plus a little...
