Really? My DH has about twice as many as me (like two pairs per sport he does). I have 8 pairs of shoes/boots (the most recent one was a gift).

Wow. OK. I just have one pair of each type (except specially designed Chucks) and I replace as needed. I have more footwear now than I've ever had in my life, though, LOL!

I think DH has boots, black leather and brown leather for work/church/formal, running shoes/cross trainers x2, cheap basketball shoes, expensive (limited edition Air Jordan) basketball shoes, indoor soccer x2 shoes, outdoor soccer shoes x2...there must be more b/c I just got him 15-pair door hanger and they didn't all fit. Between sports shoes and basketball shorts we could clothe a small army! I can't complain though because I have several 5-drawer units full of dog training gear.

I have addida's Kanadia trail shoes for the warmer temps. They grip nice for training, going on 3 yrs old now. I'll probably replace them in the spring, but they are still in good shape!

The Whisper is a little narrower, (and less expensive I think, too) although they are all adjustable:



There's the Newport:



It looks like they've added a few other styles too. They come in tons of different colors.

I like the first one better, I think. Do the toes really look like they're coming up like that? It might drive me mad. On my feet, I'd look like a clown.

**Photo removed. Oversized. Please, no photos over 800X600. Thank you. ADMIN**

I wear these for the winter. It's lined with sheep fur, so very warm. Vibram sole.

For running and better weather, I wear my Aesics Gel runners.
