    I've always been a huge fan of Lobb's work. If I had the kind of cash where I could drop a megapile on proper shodding, I'd pay them to custom carve a last for my feet and make all my shoes custom.

    I don't think Lobb makes a US size 16 right off the bench.

    I wasn't aware that Lobb's brand was owned by Hermes.

    That's a nice pair Thai, one of those, in a dark cordovan brown, and i'd snap em up in a minute ! Hermes own all of Lobb, but let the Lobb family run the boutique in London, all Hermes shoes (atleast the pricier ranges with the croc leathers and so on) are custom made by the Lobb family, and then finished and quality checked by the French Hermes craftsmen.

    Bironi are also really cool, the way they swift-polish the leathers to change the colours, it's simply fascinating, unfortunately, they come of to me as highly tacky (due to my minimalist preferences) so I can just admire them

    I kinda don't want the Gucci moccasin anymore, and am leaning towards something a bit different! I'll be buying a navy suit soon, so i'll need some nice brown shoes to top it off

    Really like Onitsuka Tigers by Asics. I have mexicos, tai chis and runsparks. The mexico are by far my favorite pair. I'll be trying out the ultimates next week.

    I guess I am something of a "dresser" and I love J. Weston; Grenson (for Paul Stuart); Aldens and Gaziano & Girling. I own all but the last name, which is somewhat beyond my price range right now.

    That's kind of what happened to me! I discovered this shoe store next to the new Ulta (which I went to initially because of the perfume. . .) and I discovered Coach heels. They were $80!!!! The lady said they were over $150 when they AREN'T on sale. I was like, "NO way! I can buy a (really really small) bottle of Rose 31 for that much!"

    But I tried them on and just about died. I never find heels that fit me! The sad thing is I found another pair of Coach mules that fit me to a TEE. I so rarely find shoes that fit me. But I had to buy those too!! These weren't on sale.



    Now I'm pretty much broke, but I love wearing these babies with ripped blue jeans, and they look awesome. I especially loved how, when I wore them in the airport (not only were they easy to take off at the security checkpoints but), people really get out of your way when you come clacking down the moving sidewalks in these things. Not only that but they're REALLY REALLY COMFORTABLE.

    I LOVE shoes. I wear them almost every day with jeans to match an outfit.
    I like edgy and funky styles..mostly from Italy.
    I was bored..so I decided to take pictures of some of my shoes with my iPhone.
    BTW.. they are all MEN'S shoes. LOL! Most of these I picked up during my travels.

    I 2nd that. I cant find any of my daily outfits to match. And i dont at all find them comfortable. Rather tacky looking. quite a bad attempt to copy the early birkie classics imo.

    Nice collection of Nike cleats you got there.
    I'm lovin' the three pearlized metallic pairs on the top rack to the right.
    I'm guessing... you're size 9?

    I am with Matthewfoo - that shoe collection rocks, Quixotiq. I especially like the pinkish/silvery pair in the top row. Now I need to see what outfits you pair them with!

    Mmmm, collecting things. My shoe collection is fairly limited (thank goodness; I haven't got room!), but I do have a thing for Converse!

    For casual everyday work, city walking, travelling - I have several pairs of Converse and a couple of pairs of Sketchers.

    For dressy/feminine/cute shoes I have Faith black chunky high heels, Faith green satin espadrillos and an adorable pair of bright red & white polka dot TUK shoes. http://www.tukshoes.co.uk/

    Plus various functional shoes, sandals and flip-flops of various makes, but nothing too expensive or designer-y.

    That's not a 'problem' DrBubba, it's an achievement! Heh. Can you ID the brand/style on the last pair you posted, btw (the ones you're wearing in the photo)? Those are very cool.

    As for me, I'd be more of a shoe person if I had more money but I've scored a few awesome pairs on eBay. The best is a pair of burgundy patent leather platforms by Gina (UK brand) that were designed for a runway show only, which I won for under $100.

    One day, when I can afford them, I will have a pair of Louboutins. And instead of wearing them, I might just sit and gaze at them all day.

    my current favorite pair of shoes are the black vans prison issue #23 (the one with the 3 velcro straps). i still love my chucks but since i sometimes wear jack purcells, i find it a lot more comfortable in comparison to regular chucks.
