2 for active use (my army boots and sandals).

Riding boots + shoes for winter riding.

3 or 4 pairs of high-heeled shoes for celebrations.

Few pairs of old, already small or otherwise out of use shoes which I should sell/give/throw away but I haven't managed to do that.

I don't know if I want to count & find out. I love shoes, particularly boots & flip flops. I have a shelf thing with 15 cubby holes, there are at least 3 pairs in each. Then there's the mud room closet that has barn gear, probably 15 pairs of western boots, 2 pairs of field boots, 1 pair of paddock boots, 3 pairs of rubber muck boots, eek....no wonder DH makes a point to say "are you really buying another pair of boots?" when I insist we go to Boot City when visiting his sister.

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.

YOU?
Haha
Like you I have an assortment of various shoes, all of which were bought BC (before child.)

Nowadays all I buy (and wear) are work boots/shoes. I have about 3 pair of those tan construction type of boots men wear (only when I can find them small enough) 3 pair of Mucks boots with various treads, 3 pair of super cheap sneakers, all covered in poop, of course. About three super duper winter work boots....
Yeah... my feet are sooo pretty from all of those!
I think the last time I wore heals was in... um... ah....(thinking)..... ??
