I own three pairs of shoes, new shoes, my old shoes and a pair of smart shoes. I wear the smart shoes when i wear my suit, so almost never, i dont wear my old shoes now i own my new shoes, i only keep them around (in a state of shoe retirement) out of a sentimental attatchment to shoes i have owned for about five years and cant bring myself to throw away yet. so i wear the new shoes all the time: answers 3 and 1, i suspect this is where my hidden geek nuerosiees are hiding.

On a shoe related topic, to make this a slightly less insanely banaal post i once operated a shoe scam as an undergraduate that kept me in shoes until my conscince kicked in. I used to buy M&S cheap trainers in a non commital unsporty brown type colour, then (as is my habit) wear them exclusivly .. they would fall to bits in about 3 months, i would take them back having kept the recipt, and say in a sad dissapointed voice, "these shoes only lasted 3 months" ... i would then have a new pair pressed into my hands by a helpful shop asistant who agreed this this was far too short a time for shoes to last... Infinte trainers, one £30 pair lasted the majority of my undergraduate career. This was probably wrong, but i think any shoes should last longer than three months, but i probably shouldnt have repeated the process for quite so long. Happy days
I'm suprised they let it carry on beyond the guarantee of the initial pair, tbh...
