I did four shows at our local theatre with the same pair of shoes. It was the only pair of tennis/running shoes in my size that they had and my own personal pair were used for set painting at the theatre and furniture staining at home, so they looked terrible. By the fifth show, I had bought a new pair and used my own in the show and kept the others for paint/stain work. For Leonard, they probably got a hold of two or three pair of those decided those are "his" shoes for "his" costume and will be for all of time.
I was just wondering this morning if they've gone through more than one pair. I remember David Duchovny talking about how he noticed at one point, during the 7th season of TXF, I think, that his "Mulder" shoes were more worn out than his own personal shoes.
From the pictures the outside of his shoes look pretty much the same from the first season to the fifth. I would like to think that they have a bit bigger budget for the show than we do for our plays that run for 10-14 days. For instance, as the set designer, I am basically the Production Designer, Art Director, Set Dresser and I supervise the construction of the set, and anything over and above construction and painting the walls, I have to do (I had to build the appearance of the cabinets and put the tile in for a kitchen set ). For all that, I get less than $1000, about two day's pay for an average set dresser or a day's pay for an art director. Not complaining, except for set design. costume design, director and stage manager, everyone else is a volunteer.
