"I want to see what kind of shoes a single man wears," the Mississippian Mom commented (or something along those lines) on one of my recent postings about MY STUFF.
Here it is.

I do humbly offer my apologies. About the only thing that's missing are my winter snow boots, my black dress shoes and my Perry Como lounging slippers.
I don't think this is what Awaiting was awaiting, but I blew out my tire last night and had to change said tire early this morning in temperatures of -35C with the windchill.
I have only recently returned from paying $197 Cdn for a new tire to be installed, a process that took half my day. My fingers, ears, eyeballs and some other body parts are still numb.
I fully expect I will be told I need new shoes too. And no, I was not wearing my sandals this morning.
I think what I need most is a vacation.

    I actually approve of every pair of these, particularly the inline skates. Are they yours or your son's?

    Please post an update with the winter snow boots. I find them disturbingly exciting x

    PS. Come on over to England. It's a scorching 10C here and the wind is only Gale Force 2

  2. But what size are they? (nudge nudge wink wink)

  3. .."say no more"....They don't actually look so big.
    Could you give some to the looter lady below? :). Oh dear, I mean -donate some shoes :).

  4. Andrea first:

    Ar Ar Ar. Size 10. For more info, check out:


    The inline skates are mine, but they are old and I need to buy some new ones.

    The snow boots are clodhoppers and what I should have been wearing earlier today.

    I will consider England. x

  5. Arrrgh!!!! WW you should have at least lined them before you took the photo or placed them on a rack or in ventilated shoe boxes. You have too many shoes for a man! Where are the leathers, I want shiny leathers, they turn me on. Oooh, I love shoes...

  6. Ghost Practicum:

    Ice shoes is right!


    Of course, that's what I SHOULD have done for appearances sake, but that would have wrecked the moment.

    My life is much more a bunch of mixed up shoes in disarray than it is about footwear properly lined up neatly. It's so "not me."

    Well, except when guests other than HE come over for a visit...

    As for the shiny leathers, those I keep in my bedroom closet, away from the stinky sneakers and worn sandals and everyday pedwear.

  7. sheesh- i can't get over how clean your shoe cupboard is!

  8. Angel:

    You're being sarcastic, right? Please see Ces's comment.


    Sorry, girl, I somehow missed your comment...

    Oh, but they ARE big. But big is overrated, as you know.

    And you are a naughty girl...

  9. Well....let's just say, you should definitely go shopping!

    The ones in the upper right are very sexy to me.

    Don't ask why....just play along.

    I am so over here smiling my butt off! I betcha you'd look tres hot in a pair of moccasins! underwear...

    *just kidding!!*

    (Why didn't I catch this sooner!?)

    *kicks self in the rear*

  10. Wow. You own more shoes than most men I know. Most guys are content with 3 pairs: sneakers, flip-flops, and work shoes. To hear my dad say it, anymore than that is unnecessary.

  11. I know I've missed all the hoopla about shoes so am a little confused about how many you own. Your shoe display looked like mine before I finally cleaned them up. Is there a limit to how many shoes one must own? How about cowboy boots? SC owns quite a few of those. Have you ever tried on a pair of Crocks? They are as ugly as those Cabbage Patch dolls, but are so very comfy!

    Very practical shoes these. We don't get good shoes for women. Most with heels and strappy. Impractical.

    So most of the times I end up wearing sports shoes. I own only one pair of heels at any given point of time.

    BTW, I am on vacation in Bangalore..:D
