How many pairs of "shoes" do you REALLY own?

Another thread on bits , and bit "collecting" got me thinking about shoes, and how many pairs the "average" American , Canadian , Aussie or Brit (and others, I just don't have all day to list you all) has in their closet. This is mostly aimed at women, but you men can chime in.

Just think about it! Remember (you older folks) how the media made a big deal about Imelda Marcos and her thousands of pairs of shoe? Or those pictures of people who have like rotating closets to show each pair of shoe?
I say to myself, "oh, I dont' have anywhere near that many shoes! I am a simple person when it comes to clothes; just what I really need. "

Yeah , right! Including sandals, flip flops, snow boots, slippers, paddock, show or cowboy boots, dress shoes, high heels, running shoes, water socks, I must have 25 pairs of shoes. And that's just ones I actually wear. There are more that are too old and worn out, but I haven't thrown them away.

I have approximately 30 pairs of shoes, even though I only really wear three shoes continuously.

Converse, Adidas running shoes, flats, boots and Ropers. 5 pairs! I have more at my parents house but I haven't worn them in who knows how long so they don't count :)

I never thought about it before but geez, I have a plethora of shoes - 2 pairs of Converse, 3 pairs of Chucks, 1 pair of TOMs, 1 pair of running shoes, 3 pairs of horsey shoes/boots, 1 pair of rainboots...and I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting that I don't wear often.

I kinda feel like such a pig! Haha

I have two pairs of tennis shoes, a pair of flip flops, three pairs of dress shoes, one pair of slippers, and two pairs of boots.

I have about five. I can't afford any more.

Yeah, well, they do kind of accumulate with age. Many of my shoes are at least 6 or 7 years old, or older, actually. When I'm an old lady I;ll need someone to dig me out of them

And, strangely, I mostly wear my black Danskos and my cowboy boots or paddock boots. I could manage with maybe five pairs.

I have 2 pairs of knit boots, 5 pairs of dress heels (not work appropriate) one pair of trainers, one pair of paddock boots, and 2 pairs of flip flops.

Not really anything too useful for the current weather except the knit boots and trainers but will get some more soon.
