Essay in the CSM

I learned this week that The Christian Science Monitor will publish an essay I wrote on the nature of being a "shoe guy," i.e., a guy who owns many pairs of shoes and is keenly aware of the shoes of others.
In the essay I discuss how I became a shoe guy, what it's like being a shoe guy and the pair that transformed me into a shoe guy.
A pub date is TBA.
The essay will appear in The Home Forum, which from what I can tell is wide open for personal essays. It pays decent too ($150)
Here are the guidelines: http://www.csmonitor.com/aboutus/guidelines.html#homeforum

So, how many pairs of shoes do you own?

Congrats!
I'm not being insecure here, but I'm dying to know what you thought of MY shoes? I was sorta trying to communicate an off-balance casual elegance and that's why I didn't always polish them or wear them on the right foot. Snazzy brown Oxfords? You must have remembered them.
