Here is a picture of the CULLED shoes:
|The culled shoes - 27 pairs!|
The reasons for culling each pair of shoes varies... too small, too big, too unstable, worn out or out of style - are the common reasons, but one pair of shoes I culled because I fell down the stairs in them. As a result I'm a little hesitant when I wear them now - I probably should just get rid of them.
Here is what my shoe collection looks like after the big shoe cull:
|All my shoes - AFTER shot|
Here are the close up shots of each of the bookcases:
|Post-cull contents of bookcase No. 1 - shoe count: 8 pairs|
|Post-cull contents of bookcase No. 2 - shoe count: 17 pairs|
|Post cull contents of bookcase No. 3 - shoe count: 19 pairs|
ETA: plus my Country Road biker boots... which are on their last legs, which will take my shoe tally to 46 pairs.
The Twilight Zone
|Potential future cull candidates - colour coded!|
There are a number of pairs which survived this particular cull... but they are future cull candidates - either not worn often enough or needing replacement soon.
RED - too high (I'm eager to try Insolia Inserts to see whether they will make these shoes more wearable).
BLUE - whether these shoes stay or go depends on how often I wear them over the coming months. The brown and grey boots were purchased for a good price at the end of last Winter - they remain untested!
YELLOW - slightly too small. Most probably the brown wedges I will give to my Mum when I find a suitable replacement. My silver MJ Maddies I will keep because I like looking at them and they are my first ever designer shoe purchase.
GREEN - these shoes are well worn and most likely to be replaced in the coming year... hopefully if I am lucky I will find some nice pairs in the US!
