Shoe Deathmatch

Shoe Deathmatch 2005: A New Summer Series

My shoe collection is once again out of hand. How out of hand you ask? If I told you I own roughly 48 pairs of shoes, would that be out of hand? Here’s part of my collection as it stands today. This does not include several pairs of running shoes.

Given my problem, I’ve decided to have a good old-fashioned deathmatch whereby each week (for as long as I decide to do this) two pairs of shoes battle to the death. The winner stays in my closet, and the loser dies an ugly, horrible death, also known as the “Good Samaritan Store.”

For our first match we have the boring working class shoes. The not-so-trendy-but-comfortable brown Eastlands, against the worn once navy Nurtures. Be as superficial as you want, tell me which one needs to go. In the future, I’m going to try to set up an official ballot box of sorts, but for now, put your votes in the comments.
