my first friday five
October 04, 2002

I've never been into the Friday Five, but I simply could not resist this week's questions...

1. What size shoe do you wear?
Somewhere between a 7.5 and an 8.5, it totally depends on the shoe.

2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Far too many. At one point I had 68, and by some miracle, ended up getting rid of about half of them. That was about a year and a half ago. I am probably getting close to 68 again. I have realized that my shoe buying addiction is a little out of hand, and am happy to say that I've gone exactly 3 months without buying shoes. We'll see how long that lasts.

3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)?
I used to have a thing for Dr. Martens. I had 15 pairs at one point. I think I'm probably down to 4 or 5 pairs now. With all the shoes I own there about 3 pairs that I wear on a regular basis (I know it's silly, shut-up), clunky black mary janes (grip fast), black and burgundy saddle shoes (also grip fast), and converse low-tops.

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?
There are so many, I can't pick just one...but if I had to, my favorite pair is probably the black and burgundy saddle shoes (photo here). They're pretty darn comfy, they go with almost every piece of clothing I own, and they have a steel toe. They're so marvelous that I bought 2 pairs.

5. What's the most you've spent on one pair of shoes?
If I remember correctly, I think the most I've spent is $130 on a pair of Campers.

And there you have it. My first, and probably last, Friday Five.
