I have purchased a pair of cordovan Mary Janes, a pair of stompy boots (Doc Martens got cheap: my last pair of gothing boots was bought in1993 and I noticed in Austin that they've sort of started to hurt my feet after four hours of dancing), and a pair of rock climbing approach shoes. Closed-toe Tevas, in fact. (My old Tevas went in the trash as well.) The Mary Janes were the most expensive item. Assuming they all fit (and I bought all known brands, so they should), then come fall, I will lay in a new pair of ankle boots, and I will be good to go for another three years. *g*
Give or take a few pairs of running shoes.
