Dude's, how many shoes do you own?

After the horse shoe thread, it got me thinking of how many shoes I own. I just checked.

23

this is including cleats and golf shoes and shit like that.

How the hell do you not own an even number of shoes? You lose one on the highway or something?

I've been bad about shoes lately. I had some store credit with TheClymb.com and went a little nutty.

I've got 9-10 pairs of athletic shoes (running, trail running, minimalist, hiking)
2 pairs of military style boots (one is NIB spare)
1 pair arctic overboots
3 pair of hiking boots for different terrains
3 pair of dress shoes (I should have more but I hate dress shoes)
1 pair of cycling shoes to go with my pedals
2 pair of junk shoes for mowing the grass or wearing in the garage when I don't want to trash my good running shoes.

I think that's it...so about 22

I don't/won't own sandles - Oh shit, do snow shoes count? Because I've got a nice pair of snow shoes.

No, you have empty shelves, put the shoes neatly on them, once they do not fit anymore, that means that you need to purge.

waaayy too many, all the activity specific shoes really up the count. Skate, wading boots, motorcycle, golf, tennis. Plus I hold on to way too many old pairs to junk around in cutting the grass or walking the dog. It's obscene, I think I have more shoes than my wife and daughter combined.
