My Shoes

Updated on April 27, 2010

As a gay man I notice more and more that I seem to have more pairs of shoes than jeans, half of them I don’t wear now but you just can bring yourself to through them out as you never know when you will need them. 

I have three pairs of tan boots that just go so well with my blue jeans, 

I have 1 pair of black boots and 1 pair of blue boots that are just fantastic for walking in the mountains here in the lake district (and fashionable).

I have 6 pairs of trainers 2 are white and 3 brown and 1 black 

I have at least 7 pairs of slippers one for every day of the week I say, even though my friends find this funny because I have more than they have. 

I have my easy shoes which are like deck shoes again 2 pairs which are tan as I don’t like black shoes as a rule.

I have 2 pairs of black shoes just for going out and work but that is all they are for. 

I have my Wellingtons too (or Wellies as we call them lol) 2 pairs one black and one green

And then I find sometimes I actually borrow my friends shoes and end up with a pile of their shoes as well as my own,  but yet when I’m home I hardly wear shoes and walk around the house barefoot is this just vanity or insanity???????

Maybe its just me but my shoes I will never part with, I just love them so much I have a whole other cupboard full of shoes and I think I’m just getting sillier with collecting them but what can I say? you got to have some kind of hobby I suppose.

Tell me are you as bad as me or worse, it will make me feel a lot better to know I’m not the only one......

      Now I like shoes that are ultra-comfortable and weigh next to nothing so I always buy a certain German brand - you'll know which one it is.

      But years ago I had as many if not more pairs than you Callum - most were shoes and French - beautiful leather!

      Do we get to call you Emelda now? lol!

      I think you're definitely a nut case and you should remember that you have only got two feet, both left by the sound of it. Your friends should stop encouraging you and you should phone Oprah about de-cluttering, she'd invite you over onto her show and you'd need a lovely new pair, or two, of shoes for the occasion. I've got one pair of well worn black going out shoes, one pair of runners, one pair of concrete encrusted work boots, two pairs of soccer boots and two pairs of slippers that i never wear. Thinking about the implications of this last statement, i have concluded that i am much nuttier and scruffier than you are. Cheers

      I am not a big shoe collector but I once worked with a women who had a closet designated for her shoes - all in their boxes where she carefully put them after she wore them. I do not think you are alone in shoe collection.
