    1 x Black work boots
    3 x Shimano cycling shoes

    1x pair Impact Karvers for Wimmins
    1x pair leather boots

    Most annoying thing is that pretty much none of them fit very well due to my stupid narrow feet (particularly towards the heels).

    1 x Redwing boots
    1 x Cheney smart brogues

    1 x Nike AF1’s
    1 X Wellies
    1 x Roadie Shoes
    1 x MTB trail SPDs
    1 x MTB XC SPDs

    and either a pair of Redwing Beckman boots or Cheney Ranger brogues will be added when possible.

    Oh and I still ‘need’ some walking boots.

    Thanks, yossarian, I have just suggested that, and I have to say that it didn’t go down well! It may surprise you to know that if I make the slightest critical remark about her own attire, shoes or otherwise, we don’t speak for a few hours 🙂

    After many years of manky feet I have finally learnt the benefit of leather soles for extra breathability and less manky feet. the down side, leather soles and wet weather don’t go together…so I still need some with man made soles too

    In work: (i cycle commute so these stay in the office)
    leather soled brown brogues x1 worn on rotation with
    leather soled black oxfords x1 (rotation allows shoes to dry fully, prolonging their life)
    old and worn out rubber soled brown oxfords for nipping out if pissing down x1 (got wet feet Wednesday lunchtime…these may be for the bin)

    at SWMBOs
    black chelsea boots leather soled x1 (work well formal or casual)
    brown casual/chunky style commando rubber soled brogues x1
    plimsoles x1 (for summer use)
    old and split shoes for diy…about to bin

    at home
    black trainers x1
    black rubber soled chunky casual x1
    black oxford with rubber sole x1 (for smart wear when pissing down)
    brown dealer/chelsea boots with leather sole x1 (bad buy, not lasting long)
    black brogues leather soled
    wellies x1
    spd shoesx1
    flipflops x1
    plimsoles x1
    walking boots x1
    climbing shoes…errr….4 pairs? several pairs are unworn ‘spares’ bought when on discount…so do they count?

    other spares bought as part of bogohp offers or when discounted
    spds x1
    black chunky style rubber soled brogues
    brown leather soled brogues

    blimey, that’s 17 pairs not counting the unworn spares! think that’s the lot. Am I a girl for having so many?


    damn, I forgot the ski boots.

    Some of you know the brands and models of your multitudinous shoes! That’s proper geekery.
