    I have around 25-30 pairs but that includes flip flops.. I have a ton of flip flops & sandals.. Honestly I absolutely hate wearing anything that isn’t sandals or flip flops.. (You can imagine how much I love cold weather!lol) I have two favorites, my under armour flip flops are so comfy & then a super cute pair of black gypsy style sandals.

    Oh wow! I’m way below average. I think I half about half that amount, probably around 10. I’m not too much of a shoe person. I probably buy about a pair per year, and then I never throw them out :).

    I included my extensive collection of Old Navy flip flops in this…

    I probably have about 30 pairs but thats only because I don’t like to throw old stuff out. I pretty much always wear the same 10 pairs. That includes sneakers, boots, work shoes, sandals and dress shoes. I’m basically shoe challenged. I don’t like shopping for them, I only like the most basic styles and colors, don’t like to experiment, and when I finally find something I like I wear it everyday until it gets holes and then I scour the entire internet until I find the same pair or a similar one. I think there’s a defect somewhere in my female chromosomes.

    I used to have less shoes, but for some reason my future mother-in-law LOVES to take me shopping.  THEN she insists on buying everything for me (even suggesting things that would look cute on me in an attempt to buy me more) – I attribute this to her lack of a daughter all these years-  Therefore, my shoe collection has grown quite a bit the past two years due to her love. lol

    I have hiking boots, a ratty old pair of tennis shoes, chacos, and two pairs of black closed shoes for daily winter wear.  Then I’ve got snow boots, a couple pairs of flip flops, and about three or four pairs of heels.  I voted 5-10 but I think it may be more if I count all the flip flops and old pairs of shoes I need to throw out.

    hahaha 19?! No way! I was at 97 when I moved in August, but I gave about 10 pairs away so I’m probably up to 90ish? Including sandals, but not flip flops.

    Sigh.  This is a sad story.  I used to have hundreds.  Designers, name brands, shoes and boots for all kinds of weather, all kinds of outfits.  Alas, I hurt my feet by wearing shoes that weren’t good for them.  And this year, I had to start over… and only wear… Footprints (Birkenstock).  Luckily, I order them from Germany and there are actually lots of great options now, but I had to donate all of my old pairs (at least someone somewhere is probably happy).  I used to have a shoe closet just for my shoes.  Now that I have had to start over with only shoes that are very supportive for my feet (it is expensive to start over!) I probably have 10 pairs.

    Yeah, if flip flops didn’t count, I would have a lot fewer…..

    I own probably 30ish pairs total; I regularly wear 2-3 each season.

    I have like 30+ and yet I still feel my shoe wardrobe is insufficient. I do wear the same few pairs repeatedly, but I have a lot of various nifty heels that aren’t really meant for daily wear so I don’t get to break them out as much as I like. I need more “basics” to switch up the daily rotation. I love shoes. They never make me feel fat. Also, I don’t wear flip-flops. I have a few pairs for like the beach, but I really really don’t wear them unless I am just running to Wal*Mart or something. No offense, I just don’t find them attractive or any more comfortable than my regular sandals.

    How do you afford so many pairs of shoes??? I feel guilty whenever I buy shoes, I’m guessing 11-20, not including flip flops because.. they’re only sort of shoes and I kind of hate them unless I’m going to the beach

    2 pairs of Uggs

    1 pair of rain boots

    2 pairs gym shoes

    3 pairs flats

    4 pairs sandals

    2 pairs heeled boots

    8 pairs heels

     okay, so about 22 pairs- all on sale and/or under 50$ (except the Uggs, those are, well, Ugg prices).. I’ll be buying probably 2 new pairs soon though, as I’m going to Rome in 3 weeks!!
