How often we should buy a new shoes/ sandals/ slippers? And how many shoes/ sandals/ slippers that you have? I have 4 pairs of beauty shoes, 2 pairs running shoes, 2 slippers. The girl next door in my dorm have 2 new pairs beautiful shoes (note) every 2 weeks! Make me desperately jealous seeing her shoes rack ^o^;

I love shoes. I don't go overboard and spend lots of money on shoes but I have several pairs. Every year, I try to go through them (and my clothes) and give what I do not wear to a less fortunate lady I know but I end up accumulating more in just a few months... I prefer to just buy shoes from the dollar store or walmart, in most cases, you can get a pair for less than 10 bucks. If you just wear them a few times, then they have paid for themselves. I can be rough on stuff sometimes. I probably have 20 pairs of flip flops but they are cheap and wear out easy so I need them. I have several pairs of boots and tennis shoes. I have certain shoes for certain things, like riding the harley, or going to work. I am a big fan of the crocs shoe. I have three pairs of them right now. I have lots of house shoes, also. They are comfy for when I am indoors.

I am female. :) yeah, I have boots I wear when I ride. It's hard to be on a bike in flip flops or something, that exhaust gets pretty hot.

I don't buy foot wear very often. I usually buy around 1-2 pairs every change of seasons. All I own would be high-heels shoes (around 5 pairs) and I don't own any sports one. I have 1-2 pairs of slippers too but they are more for leisure and walking somewhere with close distance. I am very picky about shoes and they have to be really comfortable for my feet. I'll admit that comfortable shoes are really hard to find and therefore when I find them, I am stuck with them until they fall apart, then I would need to desperately look for new ones.

I dont have time frames everytime I buy shoes or footwear. However, once i see something i like I just bought it. thats the main reason why I stay away from a shoe store coz I cant resist buying a pair or two

As for me (a guy) i do not really have time to buy shoes at such close intervals, i can wear my shoes for a long time and they still match my dressing. I currently have three pairs of shoes and are quite durable.

I have very expensive feet. I'm lucky if I get a new pair a year.
