    I have about 40-50. More than half are really pretty sparkly high heels that only come out every now and then. The rest are just normal, casual shoes. Im no Carrie Bradshaw but I do LOVE my shoes...

    (my shoes fit my closet though, most of my clothes are dresses, the rest are jeans and tank tops. Its like I have NO inbetween. Its either very formal or quite casual)

    I don't really know. Around 15ish? I mostly switch off with 2 or 3 pairs during each of the 4 seasons, almost all of which are Dansko. And a few dressy shoes that don't come out often.

    SHOES! :wav: My one true love! I have about 30-40. A mix of heels (business wear, cute stilettos, wedges), flats (ballet flats and moccasins), and one pair of tennis shoes, and 3 pairs of boots. Oh and about 10 million flip flops

    Before 2006, maybe 10. Now, around 80. :oops: I've accumulated more heels over the last few years. But I have a good mix of boots, heels, flats, about 5 pairs of sneakers, flip flops and sandals.
    A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    About 10 or so. I'd like to have more, but $$$ is the issue.

    1 pair of sneakers.

    1 pair of winter boots.

    1 pair of cowboy boots.

    A couple pairs of flats and loafers that I wear to work

    1 or 2 pairs of dressy high heels

    1 pair of dressier sandals

    1 pair of flip-flops
  • curlyjenn10curlyjenn10 Posts: 2,034Registered Users
    A lot! Most are in my closet and pretty much worn to death, but I'm a pack rat so I won't throw them out. I only get maybe 5 pairs a year because it's so hard to find shoes in my size!
  • guinnessguinness Posts: 351Registered Users
    50 to 60 pairs? But that's everything, running shoes, flip flops, flats, one pair of boots, dressy-ish work shoes, four or five pairs of chucks, some Keens, and sandals. Lots of sandals.
  • SarahMarieSarahMarie Posts: 901Registered Users
    I just got rid of a bunch of shoes, but I would say 30-40 pairs are still in my closet.

    This should have been set up as a poll, so I could have anonymously selected the highest number/range. I have a sick amount of shoes, bordering on obscene.

    I have too many to even store together. I forget about half my shoes because they are in a box in the next room.

    I LOVE shoes. I bought 4 pairs since the start of December! Really great stilletos and boots. OOOHHHH!!! My new boots are soooo cute!

    I haven't counted in a while, but I would guess somewhere between 40-50.

    Yeah, me too. I counted once years ago and it was around 70, and a lot of them hurt my feet (I have wide feet that are difficult to fit). Since then I threw out (well, donated) a ton of shoes, and now I only buy shoes that actually fit. OK, well USUALLY I only buy shoes that actually fit--I do have moments of weakness when something is on sale and is just so darn cute I don't care if it's uncomfortable. But I'd say about 80-90% of my shoes I could walk a mile in, including the heels.

    How many I OWN? probably 20-30 pairs. I probably only wear 5-10 on any kind of regular basis.

    I honestly have never counted how many pairs. I guess it doesn't matter since I tend to rotate just 3 or 4 pairs.

    I saw this online and got serious closet envy. I would love to have a closet dedicated to just shoes!

  • rileybrileyb Posts: 1,975Registered Users
    My original guess was somewhere around 40, but then I counted just that on the shelves in my closet, and I still have more under the bed and on a shoe rack... so I guess more like 60.
    I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
  • Myradella3Myradella3 Posts: 2,481Registered Users
    I'm going to say 50 or so, but my coworkers would say 3.
  • geminigemini Posts: 3,325Registered Users
    30? 40? My summer shoes are packed away. I really don't know.
  • SheSheSheShe Posts: 40Registered Users
    I have around 80 - too many!! It's a good variety of everything, boots, sneakers, sandals, casual, dress.... I really need to bring some to goodwill because it's getting ridiculous!

    I am so telling my husband about this thread. I have 14, 15 at most, and he complains that I have too many shoes. I tell him I don't have enough. Sure, I have 5 pairs of 3" or higher heeled boots, but I still believe you can't have too many boots.
    The one things I could do is get rid of 2 pairs of gym shoes. I have four: 1 for garden work, 2 for working out, and one I use as slippers.

    Yay! Lots of other shoe addicts!!! :blob7:

    I have mostly heels or wedges with a few pair of sensible ones thrown in. Plus tons of boots and a few pairs of running/exercise shoes.

    Last count was 103 in November. But I've bought a few since then - 5 I think?

    wow....i feel so.....ashamed :sad5:

    I'm hoovering around 100 pairs.....and I think I've broken that since I've been in TX...because I've racked up in the past 5 months (i tend to shop when I'm bored, stress, and breathing). I didn't own any flats and I now have a nice assortment of them (which is all i've been wearing lately)

    I need a 12 step program. Someone help me :(
