How many pairs of shoes do you have?

I have 21 pairs (shoes and boots) and I've just bought two more. I'm feeling guilty about how many pairs I have - though they all get worn.

moondog Fri 20-Aug-10 14:54:28

About 16.
All get worn.If not, I give them to someone else.

Probably about 15 including flipflops/slippers etc.

I don't have the perceived woman shoe/handbag gene.

HLaurens Fri 20-Aug-10 15:00:33

So I'm not feeling that guilty - I don't seem to be too far ahead of the average! I don't think I can justify buying any more now without ebaying some first though.

Where? At work or at home, or both combined?

Will be back in a bit <<gets out giant calculator>>

blush I have way more than anyone posted here - time for a clear out perhaps me thinks!

AbsOfCroissant Fri 20-Aug-10 15:04:21

Actually, not so bad. I forgot I'd cleared out a whole bunch. I have 17 pairs

clarabella23 Fri 20-Aug-10 19:22:34

At last count around 40. Thats just going out shoes & boots- I don't include flats/flipflops, etc. They're not pretty enough!

BelleDameSansMerci Fri 20-Aug-10 19:31:31

Probably around 120 pairs of shoes and about 15 pairs of boots. I'm not remotely ashamed of this. It's my hobby...

Many are unworn, still in their boxes just waiting for the opportunity. grin

Same here Belle. It doesn't matter if they don't get worn, they are loved just the same....

and I think that's it.

oh, a pair of slippers. grin

I've only got one handbag atm too.

2 coats.

I'm really not a 'proper' laydee at all grin

TheDoodler Fri 20-Aug-10 19:50:05

Good grief - how do any of you get to wear them all???

I have <counts> 6 pairs - one pair of trainers, tow sandals (one smart, one casual) and three pairs of Dr Martens.

Why do you even need that many? confused

LynetteScavo Fri 20-Aug-10 19:51:33

I have no idea....but I've just got rid of 3 pairs, so less than I did have.

Some where between 15-20 at a guess.

KurriKurri Fri 20-Aug-10 19:53:05

Black ankle boots
brown desert style boots
posh sandals
everyday comfy sandal/shoes

No slippers atm - I was sick on them last week, and they had to be disposed ofblush

My tally includes everything but slippers and a pair of Havaianas that are covered in paint from decorating.

I sometimes change shoes half way through the day if weather has changed/it takes my fancy.

I have all the basics in my shoe wardrobe i.e. black boots, brown boots, comfy sandals and flats, but I now find myself increasing my collection with interesting colours (red, purple, green) and things like wedges. I think I've got all the essentials covered now, though!
