How many pairs of shoes do you own?

I saw a picture of inside Oprah's closet and I was suprised at how many pairs of shoes are in there. I have often thought that I have too many pairs but after seeing hers I now think differently! At last count I have 14 pairs, most of them being sneakers and thongs. How many pairs do you have?

Oprah's closet probably makes mine look good! I probably have about 30 pairs of shoes at this moment although I used to have 40 before I took inventory. I more than likely only wear about half of them on a semi-regular basis. However, in my defense we have extreme summers and winters where I live, and my shoes must reflect that. Technically, I don't count flip-flops (thongs, as you refer to them) as shoes (LOL). I have about 5 to 10 pairs of those. However, I do wear them often during the summer as well. When it's all said and done, I'd much rather have too many shoes than not enough!

Yeah, its true that many people are fond of shoes. And I am also one of them. I dont have too many pairs. I own 7 pair of shoes. Three of them being leather shoes and rest ones sneakers. I will definitely add more shoes to my collection once I start earning!

Yes, I have seen oprahs closest for shoes. I once heard that she has about 360 pairs of shoes and now I don't how much she already added to her collection. I'm not that of shoe person so I don't have much of shoes. I do have about 10-12 pairs of shoes and these are all used for the daily purpose.

*going to count now* I believe I've got 31 pairs. Not that I wear them all...or even most of them LOL. But I've got about 10 pair of sandals and flip flops, and a numerous amount of dress shoes. One was my shoes I wore in my wedding and another pair I've never worn. But I loan out sometimes. I've got several pairs of different kinds of boots. And the rest are sneakers and of the like.

lol...I have too many as far as a normal person is concerned. Well, I can't compete with Oprah! At present, I have 10 pairs at home where I live. I have another 10 pairs at my parent's place (my mom threatens to give them away). I seem to be addicted to footwear. Right now, my husband keeps a check on the footwear I buy! I've got all kinds that go with the different outfits I wear. I wear Indian as well as western...so I can't use the same footwear for both outfits. And everytime I see something I like, I want to get it. At a point, I had more footwear than clothes!

I have a pair of shoe and a sandal. I could not afford to buy many pair of beautiful shoes and sandals if i could afford it, however i like flat shoes, not the heeled one, it makes my toes ache a lot, and i like to run a lot in my work place so i like flat shoes.

I dont have that many pairs of shoes. Let me think! I would say about four pairs of summer shoes (that includes 2 pairs of thongs) & two pairs of winter shoes.

Four pairs I think, as I leave two at our vacation place. I had a few more, but threw them all away and bought comfortable shoes when we retired.

I own seven pairs. Plus i think three in my closet that I don't wear but I keep anyway. Like my dorothy shoes I used for a Rainbow Brite halloween costume. I have 3 pairs of shoes I frequently wear. One I rarely wear.. and three pairs of dress shoes I hardly wear since I hardly dress up!
