    I have black ones and white ones, bought in packages of who knows how many, probably an even number though.

    I have a crap load of Vans Slip-ons and NOTW Slip-Ons. Pretty much I am a slip-ons person. Oh and I have some Toms.

    Count me in.
    I share my house with a friend and we are both Sneakerheads.
    I think we have over 50 pairs of shoes in our home.
    Only Nike.:D

    I believe this anomaly to be a genetic mutation that occurs within the womb when man is being distinguished from woman. Somehow, the seeminlgy dominant shoe-collection trait is not removed from the male, thus resulting in this truly strange abnormality.

    that is so silly man, collecting shoes is the same as collecting video games, and even the same as stamp collecting....

    damn technicks holy crap, see but I don't live in a house though so I can't stock up on stuff, unfortunately gotta go with bear minimum

    Thats why i share the cost of my house with a friend.;)
    It's a new house we are the first people who rent it.:cool:
    I beats getting a apartment alone for the same money or even more. And live in a crappy neighborhood.
    And i cant complain about my job. It pays average but enough to get the things i like.

    And you must understand that the shoe collectors world is big and people spend a fortune to get the shoes they want.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NIKE-AIR-JORDAN...3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66:2|65:3|39:1|240:1318

    You could buy a nice pc for that money. And believe me that is not the only shoe that brings up that kinda dollar.
    It's not only the shoe only. It's a investment to.;)

    If i buy a pair of special Nike Dunks and nobody in Holland has that shoe then people are paying top dollar for it.
    Thats why i love Ebay.:D

    I'm taking you mean that relatively. ie crappy compared to the rest of Twente, which basically means living in a cave.
