I have lots of beautiful heels but they are very rarely worn these days. Can't bring myself to part with them though

2. A pair of gym shoes and a pair of toms. I should really get a pair of sandals at some stage, but can't be bothered.

I'd have somewhere around 20-25 I think. That's simply going on memory of what is in my cupboard and in the shoe area downstairs. Half of them (flats for days with kids and heels for work) would get worn at some point each week. My poor runners don't get an outing ever and I have several pairs of gorgeous heels I don't get the opportunity to wear anymore.

Around 10 I think. They all get worn a few times a month, depending on what's going on.

Most often it's sneakers for work and thongs at home though.

I like shoes a lot and very rarely throw them out.   But OP, even though I can't be bothered counting them, I couldn't compete with you.  So I rarely buy them too, I suppose. I have shoes I bought in the 1960's.

I'm totally dobbing myself in here but I will admit to around 200. I am OBSESSED!

Out of curiosity I am now going to get them all out and count them. Part of me is a little scared that it will be more than what I think and I will have to admit that it's time for an intervention!

If I add up what I've spent on them too .... oh boy!  blink.gif

Two.  If you count slippers.

Shoes suck.

Thongs - 1 pair
Flats - 1 pair

Dressy sandals - 1 pair

Dog walking shoes - 1 pair

Horrendously uncomfortable unwearable heels - 2 pairs.

I have really wide size 11 feet so shoe shopping is a nightmare.

7 that I wear regularly, another 5 that I only wear occasionally.



#16 ~Kee~In~Hawaii~

Ok, I did a quick count of the pairs in the smallest part of my wardrobes of shoes and in only 2 minutes I am already up to 67 pairs of shoes! There's 4 more sections of wardrobe to look through!  ohmy.gif Even I am horrified!

Old Grey Mare: I have size 11's too which makes it so hard to find shoes - hence why when I find them I cannot not buy them and I NEVER get rid of them. I also stock up on whole suitcases of shoes when I am in America because my size is so easy to find there in the most beautiful styles.

Probably 20-30. A number of those are converse sneakers though - at last count I had about ten pairs. I also have three pairs of docs and two other pairs of boots. If we're talking heels, I have three pairs.

About 20-25 I'm guessing, I couldn't be bothered counting them.

I'd like to buy more but I'm a size 5-5 1/2 and can rarely find anything that fits me without heading into the kids section. sad.gif
