We had heaps of shoes in our wardrobe, but the past couple of years we’ve been getting rid of old shoes and trying to keep the number of pairs to the essentials. Our two favorites are a pair of black Paul Smith boots we bought in Paris last fall and red lace-up Van’s we picked up last summer. About 90% of the time, we’re wearing either of these, leaving about a dozen other pairs of kicks lonely and gathering dust in the shoe shelf.
