I was recently talking with a friend who told me he owns 28 pairs of shoes. I couldn't believe it and had him show me. He has like 6 pairs of dress shoes, 4 pairs of boots and the rest are basically all sneakers. A lot of them still looked brand new. I feel like that is too many. I own 5 pairs myself. I have dress shoes, sneakers, nicer sneakers, sandals, and a pair of boots.
