For work shoes I wear a rotation. It's a good idea. Most guys get one pair of shoes wear them every day and hope they go with everything. They don't. In a year they die. Repeat. In five years they've gone through five pairs of shoes.
If you buy five decent pairs up front they'd last five years ... Except actually they'd last longer. Because you can polish and condition the outside, replace the soles (on well made shoes) but they eventually die from the inside out. If you don't wear them every day, they get a chance to fully dry and will last through more wearings. So five pairs of shoes will last live then five times what one pair of shoes would last.
Basically it means in the long run having more shoes doesn't actually cost more over time but let's you adjust to what you're wearing better.
I realize you may not be in the dress shoe world he but you might be one day. Hope that helps.1
