My Husband Has More Shoes Than Your Husband


These are my husband's shoes.
I make fun of him because he has twice as many shoes as I have. He insists that each shoe has a specific purpose and that substitutions cannot be made. Example: he has a pair of road bike shoes (bet you didn't know there was such a thing) and a pair of mountain bike shoes. These are not interchangeable. Now why you need two different kinds of shoes for something when your feet don't even touch the ground is beyond me. There is some subtle difference in the way the laces are tied, I think. He also has tennis shoes (specifically for TENNIS, since they have white soles), running shoes, TRAIL running shoes, basketball shoes, and cleats. And those are just his shoes for sports. He also has THREE pair of church shoes: black, maroon and brown, so he always matches (and he does look great, I might add). Then to finish it off he has his flip flops (he says these don't count as shoes), crocks, water shoes and hiking boots.

That makes a grand total of 16.

How many shoes does YOUR husband have?

  1. How funny...my first question is why are they outside? They look ready for a yard sale. Nathan doesn't get close to having that many shoes. Your husband wins!

  2. My husband has a lot as well now that you bring it up. I've never counted but I'm sure it isn't as much your husband. He probably has the same as me. I'd like to mention though that Jeromy, my bro has a huge amount of shoes. I'd like to find out how many he has. . . a shoe for every occasion, just like your husband.

  4. You're right, I'll admit defeat. Your husband does have more shoes than mine. I just counted, and Nick only has 9 pairs, including a pair of flip flops and his house slippers - I don't know if those qualify as shoes or not. This post has inspired me to find something that Nick would have more of than other husbands...I'll keep a sharp eye out.

  5. Andrew has about 4 pair, and he needs more. Maybe I will show him this post for inspiration on the shoe possibilities.

  8. First of all, Thanks for a great laugh! You are hilarious! I am amazed that you don't have a least as many shoes as your husband. I would like a reply from Scott documenting just how many shoes you have! I am ashamed to say how many shoes I have! I could do a post on my shoes alone!
