Nice collection you've got there! It is rather nice to have permanent and organized place to put one's shoes. I built some shelves in my basement a few years ago to house my approximately 60 pairs, and I don't know how I got along without them. What I find is that when I can see them all, I wear them all more regularly. Conversely, if there is a pair that I haven't worn in a very long time, it's easier to realize why and possibly cull that pair. I just did this two days ago, in fact.

I don't have mine organized quite as well as you have yours, but there is some method to my display. I've got mine organized with a winter section and summer section, and then there is dressy to casual within those categories. Every year or so, when the mood strikes me, I will do an actual written inventory. It is interesting to note how my tastes have changed over the past 7 years.

I had an interesting encounter today. It all started the other day. I was searching through Facebook Marketplace as I usually do. I came across a pair of black patent stilettos. They looked great and the $10 price tag didn't hurt either. So I messaged the seller to ask her a few basic questions. Things like the brand and size and such. At no point in our conversation did I mention or lead on that the shoes were for me. I finally told her I was interested and I could pick up the shoes tomorrow. She said great and gave me her address. She also said she had some other shoes I might be interested in.

So I drove to her house at the agreed-upon time and knocked on the door. She came to the porch area and let me in. She brought me the shoes and without missing a beat she asked if I would like to try them on. The whole drive over I was wondering how it was going to go down. And I was prepared for anything that might arise. I thought about her proposal for just a split second and said sure! I put them on and she asked how they fit? I told her they were really comfortable if not slightly large. Then she asked if I wear them around town referring to heels. I told her I do. Then she said if you don't mind me asking are you a crossdresser or trans etc etc. I felt really comfortable at this point and she seemed that way from the get-go. I told her none of the above. I told her I just wear whatever I want. If it looks good I wear it. She said okay. Then she started telling me about some trans person she knew years back in town. And all the struggles she had before she eventually died.

After a brief conversation she mentioned she had another pair of heels that I might be interested in. She said they were red patent and she went to fetch them. I was excited because I didn't have any red patent in my collection. She came back shortly with the shoes. I was slightly dejected as they were more of a maroon wine color. They were nice just the same though. They were Jessica Simpson brand. They had a 5-inch heel and a platform. They also had a keyhole cut-out in the toe box. I slipped out of the black ones and tried these on. They fit great and we're just as comfortable as the other ones despite the added height. She told me how great both pairs looked on me. She told me these ones would be $15 if I wanted them. I happily paid her the $25. She grab me a plastic bag to put the shoes in. And then she said if I have any shoes for sale later I will message you a picture. I thanked her and left one happy camper! Two hot pairs of heels for $25 and a very positive shoe buying experience.

The only negative is that when I got home I noticed the patent on the Black shoes had started to separate a little bit from the side of the heel shafts. I missed that earlier but since I only paid $10 for the shoes it was no big deal. A little glue and I should be back in business. I am going to get pics up of the shoes as soon as I can so stay tuned! Oh and I forgot to mention that earlier in the day I found a near-perfect pair of mint green patent stilettos in a thrift store for less than $10 also!

So let's recap. I got three pairs of heels plus a story and interaction of a lifetime. And not to mention a potential source of future shoe buying. And all it cost me was 30 bucks! You can't beat that!

I have had similar experiences buying off FB marketplace.  I don’t normally disclose I’m a guy.  I find 4 out of 5 times people are pretty open, as they want to make a sale. Shoes are a pretty easy one to just try on.  It’s when you shop for clothes on there that I will disclose I’m a male.  I’d rather try on things before I buy them.

2) Wine color Jessica Simpson brand with 5-inch heel and a platform. They also have a keyhole cut-out in the toe box

3) Mint green Le Chateau brand with 4.5" heel

Outstanding, Mr. X! I like the mint green heels most. You don’t see a color like that every day.

Perhaps a green jacket, black top and black skinny jeans for contrast.
