My favourite shoes

I've got... 9 pairs of shoes
in scattered destinations
Two I'm not sure on and one I didn't count
another isn't listed but the first in any doubt;
number 2 is a friend
young yet good still somehow,
4 is full of laughter-
two evenings of the whiskey matrix master,
5 I probably loved,
to this day strangely
but never the same.
6 buried me with deceitful size and comfort,
whilst 3 & 7
I threw away without a glance
and 8, strange, exciting 8
I miss but never had, only for a mate.
So here is 9
the beautiful and happy
not quite eternal but with
endurable souls.
