    I have three pairs of running shoes, ballet shoes, jazz shoes, flamenco shoes, cleets… that doesn’t even count the winter boots or regular day shoes or whatever.


    The thing with fancy shoes is they last forever, so you never throw them out. And with athletic shoes, I usually am in some kind of rotation because they wear out so fast!


    So, while I have *very* few shoes that most people see, I actually have more than average!

    OK, I want to know where the people who answered “81-90 pairs” PUT all those shoes. They’d need their own room!!

    I’m about average. I’d say I have 15 or so, but may have more like 25 counting shoes I *have* but don’t wear. To me, 19 sounds about right… For my family and friends at least.

    I have a SHOE Obsession!!! I don’t spend much money on clothing, I am perfectly happy with the basics I have in my wardrobe! But I will go Crazy with Shoes! I love shoes, I will be them in CRAZY colors, colors I may not have in my closet! I am a military wife, so I move often, so I tend to PURGE Shoes I haven’t worn in a while before a MOVE!  I have about 45 pairs right now! I should take a pic of my closet, I have the small RUBBERMAID tubs about the size of a SHOE box, with a pair of shoes in each, then a PHOTO of the shoes! The day I photographed all my shoes was a blast. I know sounds crazy, but the Cardboard shoe boxes get SMUSHED in the moves and if they aren’t in a box, they just throw them at the bottem of a wardrobe hanging box to get scuffed! I learned the hard way! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So did any of you ladies shop at MACYS last week? Shoes were buy one get one 25%! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have size 11.5 feet. I have sooo much trouble finding shoes that fit. I have around 10 pairs, and wear 4 of those regularly. If I had size 7 or 8 feet I would own 100 pairs of shoes. I love shoes.

    My goodness…..I feel bad.

    I wear a size 10 foot but I still have at LEAST 70 pairs of shoes. There are a good 10 pairs I haven’t had the chance to wear yet (but I definitely will). I have a tendency not to throw/give away shoes unless they on their last legs.

    Now that spring is here, it may be time to do some cleaning.

    Darling Husband and I counted semi-recently and I think I was in the upper 20s.  Some of those don’t really fit anymore though (I should probably get rid of those).

    I am below average atm because I haven’t bought any replacement shoes [runners pumps, hiking boots etc] in a while. I will probably end up buying 3-6 more pairs in the next month or so.

    Let’s see-2 pairs of sneakers, one pair of snow boots, one pair of black dress boots, one pair of brown dress boots, one pair of black ballet flats, one pair of tan heels, and oh about 25 pairs of flip flops.

    I have around 35 I think. Though I need to go through them and get rid of some stuff. I have tennis shoes in my closet that I’ve had since high school with the soles peeling off.

    I probably have like 15 that I wear with any measure of regularity. 4 boots, 2 tennis shoes, 4 fancier shoes, 5 casual shoes
