I spent 15 minutes discussing shoes with a woman in my office. She now has 90 pair of shoes, after throwing 20 away when she moved. I’m amazed that anyone could own that many shoes. As you’ll remember, I did admit to becoming a shoe whore for Chucks, but I know I haven’t owned 90 pair of shoes in my lifetime.
However, since I’ve learned from the master, I knew to ask the correct question. “Have you ever bought shoes that weren’t the right size because you needed that specific model?” My co-worker started laughing hysterically, then nodded that she had. Chalk one up for straight men.
