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?
