OK I know this seems a little weird, but I don't care. I have been thinking a lot about my shoes lately. I wear shoes every day so I thought I would document the shoes that have enjoyed or currently enjoy my feet.

Mac Beth 2011 I had shoes similar to this in 2003 and I guess I am stuck in the past because I got these.

Aldo 2009 I needed dressier brown shoes for work. I went back to laces.
Aldo 2008 Similar to the brown ones below - I wanted to do something different so I went with the pointy toe.
Aldo 2008 It was time to try something a little different so I got these shoes with a more narrow tip because I am trying to be hip.
Vans 2007 I love these shoes so I got another pair. This time gray.
Keen 2007 I hate getting those white stains from salt and stuff when it snows so I got these that I can wear in the snow and with jeans at work.
Aldo 2007 It was just time to replace my black work shoes. I went to try some shoes on. I was going to get something a little more hip but these shoes I bought were just more comfy.
Aldo 2007 I wanted to get a replacement pair of tan shoes to replace these. But I couldn't find light brown so I got these. I like them. I think they are cool.
Vans 2006 I got these to replace these. I love these and wear them all the time so I thought I would get black.
Aldo 2006 These are just hot. Kidding. I wanted something a little more dope and these looked more like mocassins and they were on sale so it was a no brainer.
Vans 2006 This model was the 1st pair of Vans that I got in 1985. I also had them in the 1990s and now. They are the original classic style Vans. I am old school.
Aldo 2006 I fell out of love a little with my other brown shoes so I headed back to Aldo and picked them up. I am pretty excited about these.
BSI 2006
These are my new bowling shoes. My old pair were also rental shoes but these are paid for. I wanted something different than standard store bought bowling shoes so I went with the rental shoes. They don't help my bowling. I am very bad.
Aldo 2006
I got a pair just like these from Ken Cole but they got kind of work out so I bought these.
Vans 2005
I saw some cool people wearing these and I saw them at a store so I bought them in my size. Now I am a surfer skater dude.
J Crew 2005
These are like mocassins. WILD. I needed brown shoes so I got these and they are pretty weird.
Kenneth Cole 2005
I wanted to try something new so I got these. They don't have laces! I am gonna wear these to employment and when I want to look fancier with jeans that are blue.
Puma 2004
I have been told these look a little feminine but I thought I would try something new.
Reef 2004
This was an attempt for me to get into the whole flip flop thing and I have to admit that this experiment has not been too sucessful. I seem to trip on these things. I prefer sandals.
Aldo 2004
These have been great. I decided to try and save a few dollars and not buy Kenneth Coles so I went to Aldo and got these and they look just like Kenneth Coles and they have held up very well too.
DVS 2004
I have been looking for sandals like my Teva ones from 1999 below and these are the ones I have found. I like them and I think thie DVS company makes skate shoes even though they look kind of preppy.
Nike 2004
This was a big step for me - getting running shoes. I have not yet run in them but I have gone on a number of walks with my girlfriend with them.
Converse 2004
This is your standard low top Chuck Taylor. I bought these for Nate's wedding.
Mac Beth 2003
I think I saw an ad for these in this pop punk magazine that I get and they had Blink 182 and the Alkaline Trio wearing them. So I got them and they are pretty cool. I think this company is into like saving animals and stuff so their shoes are not made of leather.
Kenneth Cole 2003
These were a great buy and I have gotten a lot of wear out of them. But I don't wear them much any more since I got the Aldo shoes.
Vans 2002
This was an attempt I made to replace the 1999 Teva sandals and this plan didn't work out well. They sort of cut into the side of my foot so I cut a piece of the sides off but they still are a little uncomfortable.
Converse 2002
I got a lot of wear out of these. Some shoe person once told me that Chuck Taylors made after like 1999 are not high quality anymore but I have had a ton of luck with them.
Kenneth Cole 2002

These acted as my work shoes for a while and to be honest I don't know why I still have them.

Halogen 2002
These were made in Italy and were only on my feet maybe 6 times. I bought them to have brown dress shoes but these never really caught on.
Vans 2001
I got a deal on these so I bought them. I have the same problem with these as I did with the DC ones below so I really don't know why I bought these and I wear them rarely.
Converse 2000
These were the 1st pair of Chuck Taylors that I bought since I was a child. I thought it would be cool to bring them back into my style and as you see from the picture I have gotten a lot of wear out of them and my girlfriend thinks I should retire them.
DC 2000
I got these to try the new school skate shoes but I found them to be too big and clunky. So I have not worn them too much.
Teva 1999
These are probably the best and most worn sandals I have ever had. In fact I base new sandal purchases on these. I like the single strap and the fact that they are adjustable. The only problem with them is that when my feet get a little sweaty, they tend to get stinky.
Teva 1998
These have been around the block and back. I really only wear them to softball since my feet get dirty at softball and I throw them on after I remove my cleats.
