    And people thought I was a little excessive!

    Yes but his trainers are not all on cedar shoe-trees like yours are πŸ™‚

    From memory:
    5 pairs shoes
    2 pairs boots
    1 pair wellies
    4 pairs trainers
    3 pair cycling shoes
    1 pair football boots
    1 pair sandals

    Was thinking that was a lot, but looking at some of your posts, maybe not.

    I’ve got:

    1 pair general trainers/approach shoes
    1 pair brown leather ankle boots
    1 pair rigger boots
    1 pair black leather work shoes
    1 pair brown leather work shoes
    1 pair smelly biohazard standard sport sandals

    1 pair mtb shoes
    2 pairs of road shoes
    4 or 5 pairs of climbing shoes
    1 pair winter walking boots

    BUT I regard the last 8pairs as sports equipment, so they don’t really count for purposes of the front page survey πŸ˜‰

    DrJ, only the good ones get the cedar treatment! (And yes, it’s worth doing! One pair of Oxfords is about twenty years old now. From Oxford as well, as it happens.)

    Absolute madness, you lot are like ladies. I have:

    1 pair black shoes,

    1 pair Β£26 Teva links from yesterdays PSA on their way to me

    I am staggered by this. Some of you lot are clearly running an n plus 1 rule for shoes. I like to think I’m running a 1 in, 1 out system as I’ve on about 6 pairs for years.

    I can’t believe I actually have more shoes than O’Flashearty. And I don’t even have to have lots of “suit” shoes anymore. πŸ˜†

    Too many to go listing them out here.

    DD, it’s probably a lot easier for you to store lots of shoes, though. Don’t take up as much space! πŸ˜‰


    42/43…like the UK average Flashy. Most of my horizontal efforts went where it’s important.

    I have a massive nose.


    I am not going to list them ,but 8 are cycling related 😳

    Pair of goretex salomon gutties
    Pair of asics runners
    Pair of brown boots
    Pair of black dress shoes
    Pair of mockasin type shoes aswell, but I never wear them, the sole is too thin and hurts me if i walk anymore than half a mile in them.

    I’ll generally wear these until there are holes in them and them buy new.

    Premier Icon miketually


    Of my five pairs, two are knackered and need replacing, one was from a charity shop, and one is permanently muddy. The other pair are flip flops.

    I’ve just realised that I’m going to have to buy a new pair of shoes then next time someone dies or gets married.

    Is this actually happening? Oh well WTF:

    Each below is obviously one pair.

    x1 running trainers
    x1 old running trainers for MTB all year round
    x1 football boots studs
    x1 football boots studs spare
    x1 football boots moulded
    x1 football boots moulded spare

    16 in total, I could probably get rid of one pair, but all others serve a purpose.


    Easily over 100 pairs, some of which I’ve never worn and some are the wrong size

    some of you lot are like women……

    You need to try much harder, Hun *kisses*


    Hang on, let me think…

    1x pair brown brogues
    1x pair black oxfords
    1x pair Merrell approach shoes
    1x pair Merrell walking boots
    1x pair running shoes (road)
    1x pair running shoes (trail)
    3x pair boots assault, combat high
    1x pair brown oxfords
    2x pairs wellies

    Do flip flops count too?

    Premier Icon footflaps

    willard: Not a single pair of cycling shoes?


    Hmmm, I have somewhere north of 60 pairs.

    In my defence I get given a lot of shoes for free from suppliers through work which is nice. But it also means that I never wear any out as the wear is spread over so many pairs. This means that they rarely get to the stage of getting thrown away.

    have you guys actually gone and catalogued them all, or is this from memory ?

    If the latter, I’m impressed πŸ™‚

    as far as I can remember :

    2 pairs work shoes
    2 or 3 pairs brown work/casual
    more than 2 but less than 5 pairs of trainers

    bike :

    2 pairs mtb
    1 pair road
    1 pair velodrome
    1 pair defrosters πŸ™‚

    and some slippers !!!

    Memory. But mainly because I wear them all with reasonable regularity (work shoes on rotation, though one pair of the Paul Smiths have now developed cracks in the leather – that’s why I have two pairs!).


    This thread has cheered me up.

    22 I think


    3 x smart / formal shoes
    4 x casual shoes
    2 x walking trainers
    3 x casual trainers
    1 pair road running shoes
    4 x fell running shoes
    2 x cycling shoes
    2 x hiking boots
    2 x rock climbing shoes
    3 x sandals / flip flops

    So 25 pairs, I’ve probably missed a couple of pairs but by my reckoning thats about Β£2000 tied up in shoes.
