Are YOU a shoe addict?

Obviously, this discussion is directed at the ladies, but you guys can also chime in if you love shoes too or if your wife or significant other is a shoe addict. I could easily be a shoe addict, but I really try to curtail myself. My husband just doesn't understand and since we moved to this house over ten years ago, I have really been working hard on this problem. Why? This house was built in 1860 and there are only a few closets in the house. Yes, we have one small closet in the master bedroom. It is SMALL. It is almost useless. Now that I have a problem with storage for my shoes, I have stopped buying so many extra pairs of shoes...just because. I buy what I need or I may pick up a pair of boots, etc. at the end of the season for next year on sale, but normally I don't overdo it on shoes anymore. Or is your addiction more to the point of having a pair of shoes for each of your favorite outfits? You hate to wear the same pair of shoes with several outfits, so you have to get a new pair? This brings me to ask you, "Are you a shoe addict?" Where do you store your shoes? Do you have a nice walk-in closet with ample space for all of your shoes? Do you shove them under your bed? Where do you put them all? And how do you organize them? Photo: Pixabay, public domain

I am 100% without a doubt a shoe addict. I probably have close to 100 pairs of shoes in my closet. Sperry boat shoes are a particular weakness of mine. I just bought a pair last week, and I'm already eyeing a pair I want to buy this week!

@kareng Our son LOVES Nikes and manages to get us to buy a pair when we visit. He is four hours flight away as we only see him every few years. Last time we went he'd picked up two pairs for me that someone was selling and talked me into buying a new pair as well. I have to admit they are very comfy.
I have a storage unit out side of my home in the backyard. Lots of room to store and organize my shoes. When my storage shed gets full and there is no more room. I take the shoes I had the longest and go straight to operation blessing. I make sure the shoes are in great shape so whoever gets them will be glad to have them. My old shoes will be their new shoes. I do the same thing with my handbags.
