one hour later .
Now I do love my shoes , and I do have a bit of an addiction when it comes to buying them .
I think I've got about 20 pairs to show you in this video , and that's after me selling a load that I never wore .
Now there's definitely no need for you to own that many pairs of shoes , and I didn't realise I had that many before filming this video , so I don't think it's normal .
It's definitely not normal .
I have built up my collection over a number of years , though , so that's one of the reasons I have so many also talking about fashion .
It's my job , so I have more stuff than you really need .
So do keep that in mind .
The shoes I go for these days are all timeless .
They're all quite simple , so they're really easy to style .
And , yeah , I definitely have a style that I like , and you'll see that in this video .
Let's not waste any more time .
I'm starting to waffle now , and we've got a lot to get through .
If you like this video at any point , please do leave it a like and Now that's all out of the way .
Let's get into the shoes .
So let's start off with the sneaker that I wear the most .
And it's my current favourite sneaker .
And if you followed the channel for a while , you probably already know what it is .
But it's the Converse Chuck Taylor , 70 now .
I currently own these in the black colour way and in the natural colour way .
And I used to own them in the low top versions , too .
But I never wore them , so I sold them .
I definitely prefer the high tops in this shoe .
Anyway , I'm a UK size nine , and I pick these up in a half size down , so I picked them up in an 8.5 .
The Converse website suggests that you go down half a size as well , and I'm not going to argue with them .
I do agree with them now just to let you know the first wear in these is brutal .
Every time I get a new pair , my heels are shredded in them and yeah , after that , they're fine .
But just be prepared .
Just be Just be prepared for that .
Now These shoes do run quite narrow , but I found going true to size made no difference in the width .
It just made them a bit longer , and I did actually own them in my true size a few years ago .
And what I found is the end , because it was a bit too long .
It started to curl up a bit , and it ruined the aesthetic of the shoe .
But as I always say , try them on for yourself and see how you get on with them Next up .
We've got my van skate high now .
I've always been a massive fan of vans , and I've always had a pair in my rotation .
And just like Converse , they're a very simple shoe , and some people might think they're a bit too basic .
But not for me .
The more basic , the better I say now .
It had been quite a while since I bought a pair of skate highs until I bought this pair more recently , and I'm absolutely loving them at the moment .
They definitely give off a look to the Chuck seventies , but they're slightly more chunky and I'd say slightly more casual .
It's also worth mentioning that these are wider than the converse .
So if you do find Converse too narrow for you , try a pair of these out .
But like the Converse , these are a timeless classic .
The black colour way means I can wear them all year round , and I'm so glad to have a pair in my rotation .
But as I always do with my vans , I always go true to size and they fit me perfectly .
So as we're already talking about vans , I'm going to show you my pairs of authentic now vans .
Authentic are probably my favourite of the low top models , and I don't think there's been a time where I haven't had a pair in my rotation .
Maybe when I was like five , but apart from that and I currently own a pair of the LX version in the black colour way and also a regular pair in the cream colour way .
Now I wear the black pair all year round , but the cream pair I only wear in the summer because that canvas would get filthy if I wore them in the winter .
But like most vans , these will go with pretty much anything , and I feel you can easily dress them up and down .
I also wear these as my lifting shoes in the gym .
At the moment , they're not the best lifting shoes out there , but they look good and they do the job , so they're a very versatile sneaker .
Next up , we've got the Reebok Club C 85 STV .
Now I don't really know what the TV stands for .
I'm assuming it's television .
But why ?
If you know why , let us know in the comments , please .
Anyway , these sneakers are really comfortable and they're perfect in the warmer weather .
But I haven't really been wearing them that much recently .
And come to think of it recently , I haven't really been wearing white sneakers .
On the whole , I've definitely been wearing darker colours .
More so That's probably the reason why .
But as these are a timeless classic and I still do love them , it doesn't really matter .
I might wear them next year .
Or if not , maybe the year after that .
They're never going to go out of style .
I went through to size in these , and they fit me like a dream .
I'm not sure how a dream is supposed to fit , but basically they fit me perfectly moving on next .
We're going to move on to my very small ADI collection , and these two pairs are very similar .
But at the time of buying them both , I couldn't work out which pair I like best and I still don't know .
So I had to pick up both .
But the first pair I picked up were the samba , and the second pair I picked up are the handball specials .
I mainly wear these .
If I'm just popping out to get some milk or to the supermarket .
I don't know why , but they make an excellent grocery shopping shoe .
I also think they look good with a fuller length trouser .
I don't wear fuller length trousers that much , but if I do , then I do wear a pair of these now .
I went through to sizing in these , and they fit me perfectly .
But just a word of warning .
The Sabres .
When I first got them , they shredded up my heel .
I'm not sure if it's just the way I'm walking , Why I'm experiencing so much heel shred .
But if you experience that , too , do let me know in the comments .
So the next pair of sneakers I've got is the acne studio Ballow Sneaker .
Now , before I bought these , I was actually looking at buying a pair of van slip ons , and I saw these the sale , and I thought they'd be nice for a change .
Now these are actually my first pair of shoes from acne studios , and they are very simple , but that's why I like them .
I think these retail for just over £200 which is a lot for a slip on sneaker , but I was lucky enough to get these for 40% off .
Now , I normally only wear slip on sneakers in the summer .
But as these are black , I think I can easily wear them in the autumn and winter , too .
So I'm going to wear them in the autumn and winter , too .
Why not now ?
Even though they're a very casual sneaker , you could easily dress these up , and I'd happily wear them for an evening out or to dinner or something like that .
Not a smart dinner , but more of a casual dinner Now .
When I first bought these , I bought them in my true size , and they did fit me .
But because they're a slip on sneaker I was worried that they'd stretch a bit and no longer fit , So I did size down the size eight .
Do still fit me , but they are a little bit snug now .
I haven't had these long , and I've only worn them a handful of times .
So going down a .
Was I right to do that ?
Only time will tell next .
We've got a sneaker that I absolutely love , but I don't wear these days , and it's the Nike Air Max 90 .
Now the only reason I don't wear these shoes is because I don't think they suit my style , even though I do love them .
I used to always do this with sneakers because I love the look of them so much , and I appreciate them so much .
I used to buy a load of pairs that I knew wouldn't suit me , but I just kind of wanted them Now .
I have stopped doing this nowadays , and my bank balance is thankful for it , and I wouldn't recommend you do the same either .
Anyway , this was a custom pair that I made myself using Nike ID , and they were supposed to be all in the same sale colour way But when I got them , some parts were more yellowish , and at the time I was really disappointed by this .
But I suppose it's made them more unique , and I kind of like that about them .
Now it has kind of put me off using Nike ID in the future , but maybe I was just unlucky .
But if you had similar problems , do let me know Now I know I should sell these because I don't wear them .
But because I design them , they're kind of a bit special to me , so I don't want to let them go , but they are very comfortable .
I pick them up in my true size and they fit like a glove .
Next up , we move on to an old favourite of mine , my common projects collection .
So I've got a black pair and a white pair of the Achilles low and a white pair of the bee ball lows .
I remember picking up my first pair of these about five or six years ago , and they were the only sneakers I wore .
But these days I don't wear them at all , Although they would suit my current style .
I think I'm a little bit bored of the clean , white , minimal sneaker .
Even though I like things to be simple and basic because they're easier to style .
I just think I overdid it a bit .
But even though Roseanne's video tears these shoes apart literally , I always found they held up really well for me now , along with a few others off this list , I will be selling these , but I just haven't got round to it yet .
We not long ago moved house , so it's been quite busy .
But yeah , I'll get on it soon .
So the next sneaker I've got are my gats from Mason Marella .
So I've probably had these for over a year now and they've never left the house .
Basically , I picked these up in a size 43 and I should have picked them up in a size 42 .
So why didn't I exchange them for another size ?
You ask Good question .
Well , when I first got them , I was so excited to show them off that I wore them in a recent pickups video for this channel .
And even though I only wore them on the carpet where I was spending my foot , they got some really small creases in them , so I couldn't send them back .
But even though I was gutted at the time , it's not the end of the world .
These sneakers hold their value really well , so I will sell them and I'll make a decent chunk of my money back for them .
Next up .
We've got my running shoes and it's the Nike React .
Infinity two .
Now it's probably time that I got a new pair of running shoes , but these have held up quite well .
They have developed a bit of a squeak in them , so you can hear me coming .
But apart from that , they're all right .
I went through the size in these and they do fit me perfectly , and they've got quite a generous toe box .
So when you're running , your foot isn't rubbing against the sides , which is really nice .
But not much to say about these .
They are a pair of running shoes .
They're very comfortable .
I think they've actually released the three .
The third version of these .
So , yeah , I might check those out for my next pair , but yeah , let's move on .
So now we're moving into my shoes and the first pair are my Clark's Wallabies now .
I don't really wear shoes .
I'm definitely more of a sneaker person .
But I do love a Clark's Wallaby Now .
When I was picking a pair of these up , I wasn't sure whether to get the Maple pair or the black pair .
But I thought I'd be able to wear the black pair a lot more .
I'd be able to wear them year round .
So I picked up the black pair and I'm really glad I did .
I sized down a full size in these and they fit me perfectly and they're surprisingly comfortable from the shape of them .
I didn't think they'd be that comfortable , but they are .
I tend to wear these if I want to smarten myself up a bit , but I don't want to go full on smart .
But you could just as easily wear them casually .
So next we move on to my loafer collection and I've got three pairs from GH Bass and one pair from a collaboration between Arquette and Moha pronounce that wrong , but we'll crack on now .
I actually got all of these pairs of shoes through campaigns I did over on Instagram , apart from the black pair from GH bass and I've had these shoes for years now , but I'm finding myself wearing them less and less these days .
As I said , if I'm going for a casual look , then I'll wear sneakers .
And if I'm going for something a little bit smarter , then I tend to wear my Clark's Wallabies .
But saying that a pair of loafers will always come in handy and I'm sure , further down the line I'll appreciate having them now .
I always say If you don't wear something , get rid of it .
But when it comes to formal shoes , I don't always do that .
I think it's always a good idea to have some options in your wardrobe with formal footwear .
You never know when you might need a pair , so even though I don't wear them now , I'm sure there's going to be a time or an occasion where I will need them .
Maybe not four pairs , but definitely one .
And like I do with most of my formal footwear , I size down a full size in all of these shoes and they fit me well .
So next we move on to a pair of my smartest shoes and a pair of shoes that will probably only feature in this video and probably never on Instagram because I don't wear Oxford shoes unless I'm wearing a suit and I don't wear suits often .
But this pair are a leather pair of Oxfords from low key .
But in my opinion , every man should own a smart pair of Oxford shoes .
You never know when you might need them .
They're great for weddings , for funerals , sadly , but yeah , if you get a decent pair , they'll last you a lifetime .
And as I already mentioned with my dress shoes , I normally size down a full size , and that's what I did with these , and they fit me perfectly .
So next we move on to my boots and it's this pair from Viron .
I picked this pair up last winter , and I think they're a great looking boot and they're made of apple leather rather than leather .
So they are quite soft and they are very comfortable .
I don't think they even needed a break in period , and my heels were very thankful for that .
No shredded heels with these , but I think Veron boots are going to be very popular this year .
I'm seeing more and more people in them , and with these I size down a full size and they fit me perfectly .
But they've got a great sizing guide on their website , so do check that out if you want to buy a pair .
I'm not much of a boot person , but when it's really cold outside and I need a pair of boots , these are the pair that I wear .
Next we move on to my sandals and it's my Birkenstock Arizona .
Now I only really wear these on holiday or around the house .
I've never really been one for wearing sandals as an everyday casual shoe .
But , yeah , I'm a little bit bored of seeing Birkenstocks these days , but they do definitely have their place .
And I definitely prefer the look of these over a thong flip flop .
So on holiday , if I'm going out and it's really hot , I will wear a pair of these Anyway .
Everyone knows Birkin stocks by now , and I know a lot of people go true to size with these , but I find sizing down fits me a lot better .
So those are all the shoes that I currently own and I know a lot of them look quite similar to one another , but I have a style that I like .
And at least I know I'm going to wear them .
But let me know what your favourite pair wear down in the comments and let me know which pairs you own .
