Shoes,shoes,and more shoes
Okay fellow iquers we have a new person to our coffee group and they was sharing the fact that the new shoes they bought cost $350.00 .I don't know is that true or not,but it got me thinking my wife got to have at least 30 pairs of shoes ,me 3 pairs,so I was wondering how many pairs of shoes do you have and what the most you ever paid for a pair of shoes

I have a pair nice black gym shoes for work, old beat up black gym shoes for working (car, yard, painting, etc.), dress shoes, sandals, and winter boots.

My daughter is like jswol, she pretty much only wears Jordans and has about 30 pair. She also has at least 299 flip-flops. I know it's an odd number because she's always looking for one.

probably 20-30 pairs. i wear maybe 10 of the pairs. and i've never spent more than $30 on shoes.
#5 | 743 days ago

I have 42 pairs of shoes in my current rotation.  It would be more if my mother didn't donate approx 20 pairs of shoes after I left for school as a young lad.  The most expensive I have are my limited edition (Space Jam) MJ XI's valued at around $550 - I bought them for $300 a few years back.  I will never wear them - they are for display only, though I hope to get them signed some day.

Yeah, about that....my GF pretty much only wears this brand.  Shoot me. 
#7 | 743 days ago

I hate most of the shoes I have. I have a medium width foot and a 1/2 size.  Impossible to get shoes to fit right.
 
The most I've spent on shoes was a pair of Ferragamo Black Pumps, wholesale $180.   My dog chewed up one of them.

When my mom lived in Connecticut her friend's daughter had a "guy" on Canal St. in NYC who would go "into the back" for his stash of the good shiite. LMAO, they'd run $70-$80 ish instead of the $10 stuff out front or the real $350+, but apparently it was primo swag. (She never knew, ha.) Same dude had the knock off Roley's that didn't tick-tock. Late 90's me and my GF were kickin' it like Puffy and J-Lo for a bit.

You stay in touch with the friend's daughter?  I NEED to get a hold of her and find out if that guy is still running that racket.  If anything, he could put me in touch with someone in Chicago. 

I used to have an Oakley guy in Chinatown, but he got busted and sent back to Hong Kong.  I shed a tear that day.

My mom has a "guy" like that in L.A.

Idk how many pairs of shoes I have. I know I only have two pairs of sneakers, lots of sandals and flip flops, and the rest are heels. Most expensive pair were probably my Steve Madden Boots, those were $240.

I'll ask my cuz staying with me now, she just spent 8 months working up there and is rocking some tight shiite to work everyday and she is NOT Beyonce. I know she's peacocking around the office down here like "B's, please." lol

#16 | 743 days ago

2 pairs, 1 pair of sneakers and 1 dress shoes. Max I would spend would be 40 for sneakers and 20 for dress shoes. I get a new pair of sneakers every spring and wear them all year long.

Had a pair of these Stacys back in the late 80's early 90's


Wolverine workboots



Dress shoes for when we go out dressed up



and two old pairs of sneakers for working outside.

The most iever  paid was 120 for the boots.
#19 | 743 days ago

I have 4 pairs of running shoes-----one so old I should toss them but I love them, school field trips/field day Adidas, and my Brooks and Nike running/walking ones. Then there are my A LOT of Teach shoes..........which includes any and all kind of shoes that won't kill my feet while I'm teaching, flip flops, sandals that kill my feet while I teach, and boots (Uggs, dressy, casual). 

I spend most of my work days on my feet, so I will spare no cost for comfort...........but my taste usually doesn't go higher than 200...and that was for a pair of boots. 


***And Leigh............where do you find running shoes for less than 30 bucks? Tell me and I'll be your BFF. 
more than 20 pairs  
#20 | 743 days ago

I probably have 20 pairs of shoes.. including sandles and boots..
I spend usually between $75-$100 for running/training shoes, and about $50-$60 for skate shoes.  I don't own one pair of basketball sneaks so I avoid blowing my wad on those.  I'd rather spend a few hundred bucks on a night out at the bar with my friends than on a pair of kicks
Best recent purchase? These bad boys.  $11 at the thrift store.  Boom
#21 | 743 days ago

3 pairs of running shoes, also wear to work, and 2 pairs of heels!!  mmmmmmm $280 my most expensive pair

What are yoiu  waitig for then, go get the purple ones or yuo could get these:

#26 | 742 days ago

Every season (summer) I get at least 5 pairs of flip flops. I have a pair of Uggs I bought for 75 bucks and a pair of over the knee that are something something I paid 125 for. I have 5 pairs of converse that sit in my closet unless it is raining and a pair of Nikes still in the box. I usually don't pay more than 5 bucks for shoes unless they are tennys which makes no sense since I never really wear them.

My daughter is like jswol, she pretty much only wears Jordans and has about 30 pair. She also has at least 299 flip-flops. I know it's an odd number because she's always looking for one.
