Can You Have Too Many?




83






Pairs of shoes after trying to get rid of "unnecessary" ones before I left and put them into storage.

How many pairs of shoes infest your closest? Is it crazy to you how many shoes we have?  How much do you think we spend on shoes in our life time? And why do I crave more?  I think we are all nuts. Complete nuts. Men, what's your take?

I don't struggle with having too many shoes as a whole, I struggle with having too many flip flops. Like I've been known to have at least one pair in every color, more in colors I wear more often. I threw out a lot at the end of last summer so I need to restock!

oh, i have way too many. i have an over the door shoe rack, on top of my armoire in my closet, and a HUGE tupperware bin full of shoes! plus..some of those "unnecessary" ones at my parent's house! i should probably try and take some of those to plato's closet to get some money for them :)

There can never be "too many" shoes. It can be about an outfit, comfort, height, anything...but there MUST be options. Always options.

Around 50? Well, it's my guilty pleasure and I can never get enough of them. But as long as you're happy, and you're using your own money, not loan. Is it wrong for a girl to spend a lil more just to be happy? It's basic human rights, isn't it? :p

Last year I moved to a new apartment and decided to leave all my shoes to my sisters. This past December, I counted the shoes I've accumulated over the past 12 months and I own over 50 pairs. I have a ridiculous obsession with shoes!!! A girl can never have too many. :)

Way to embarrassing to even count how many I have... I have a major shoe obsession - never have too many :-)

Isn't it funny how we all love shoes so much? What is is about them, anyway? I'm out of control when it comes to the shoe issue as well though- I just can't fight the power!

I love shoes with a passion... I own closed to 100, but wear maybe 5 - 7 on a regular basis... I just bought two beautiful Jeffrey Campbells!

The more shoes the merrier! :)

I have probably 60ish pairs of shoes. And it doesn't curb my desire to continue to collect more. Contrary to my finance's request.

Teresa said...

Nope, I've decided that you really can't have too many pairs of shoes. There are just neverending outfits that need the perfect pair to match. Now if only my pocketbook agreed with me.

LouBoo said...

Hello - enjoying your blog...and categorically NO one can never have too many shoes (or boots). This is the rule!

I don't mind being nuts. I have around 30 or so pairs of shoes and (as many bags) and my husband hates it!
