2 summer dress shoes

2 casual summer shoes

1 pair winter dress shoes
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! 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. 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
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!
CG since 6/15/08!
Medium-Fine/Normal Porosity
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.
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.

If a news story breaks and no one on the Internet comments, did it really happen?

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.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
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!

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.
I'm going to say 50 or so, but my coworkers would say 3.
