I think this is a question for the men out there, rather than the ladies.
I was reading today that Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York and a man with a personal fortune of £11.2 billion only has two pairs of shoes for work!
I'm used to meeting girls who seem to have a different pair of shoes for everyday of the month, but how many should a man have?
For me, two pairs for work is too old skool; it's an outdated mindset for men to have these days.
I reckon a man needs at least four pairs for work!
I don't think four is too many. If you're wondering how I decided on the number four - I'll explain my thought process.
You need a very smart pair for special occasions, I'm thinking things like interviews and weddings for example.
You then need some casual work shoes for comfort, which say 'I'm still wearing shoes, but not making an effort today.'
You then need two pairs in the middle, not too smart not too casual. Maybe a black and brown pair, just to mix things up. I don't think this is unreasonable.
I have 6 pairs of what I'd describe as proper shoes, four of which I wear regularly for work. If you then add trainers to the list I have about 12 pairs of shoes.
I've had this conversation before with other lads in the past, and it seems I might not be you typical bloke when it comes to numbers.
I don't care, I like to have options when it comes to my footwear. I don't get the idea of having only two pairs which you wear into the ground, and the heals are at an angle because you can't be bothered to re-heal them. Do these people have no shame?
Having a good selection of shoes mean they last longer as you don't wear each pair that often. I never wear a pair of shoes more than twice in one week. It's the way forward.
Four's the magic shoe number for me, what's yours?
