I kind of covet your collection. Especially the 2nd pair from the left.
I love the black ones.
Before I trashed a pair in Turkey, I also had four pairs + three Vans and some Pumas. Totally normal.
btw.... i've figured out the secret to total comfort- removing the stiff heel counter in the back. it's not hard. and it makes break-in time non-existant.
i mean, it's not hard to remove it. the counter itself is WAY too damned hard!
I have three pairs. Plus a pair of classic nikes and some vans that i rarely wear. i wear my chucks so often that i could easily justify a couple more pairs. I've never seen the buckle chucks, but I think I'm in love!
