This is a curious question, but how many pairs of shoes do you own ? I ask, because I'm a shoe fanatic. I own about 300-350, lost count, I Love shoes ! May sound crazy, but that's who I am and proud of it !

When I started this discussion, it was really to see on the average how many shoes did everyone owned. I have averaged out about 5 - 10 pairs, and I am surprised at that, I really thought having 200 - 300 pairs of shoes was in the norm. I was wrong, maybe I have to get rid of some shoes, it going to be hard, is there any help for me ?

Yes I have worn each and every one of them, I like to match what I am wearing. For every outfit, there's a pair of shoes. Blessings to you also. I have three closets of clothes and that dress-up. I am a female pastor and you want to look nice, I'm sure. God has been tremendously good to me.

I probably have 20 pairs of shoes. Some of them are at least 20 years old. I'm not hard on shoes and prefer wearing them comfortable and broken in.

Would you believe that I have used each and every pair, I like to coordinate with what I am wearing. So I guess that makes me a clothes fanatic too !

I own 2 pairs...one for mowing the yard and basically "getting dirty" the other for going out and wearing in public...both pairs are the same type of shoe..plain black sneaker design with steel toe...when the public shoe becomes more worn out it turns into the work and mowing yard shoe...and so the cycle goes

Sorry about your mom, but she left you something at least, 100 to 200 pairs of shoes! They can be valuable, if you decide to sell some of them. May God give you peace.

In the closet, under the bed, tubs of shoes, and the funny thing is, that I have worn each and every pair at least once.

We can be best friends, but why do u have to borrow my shoes ? lol. I gained that many shoes over the years, as the style changes, I either give them away or donate them to a thrift store or something. What size do you wear ?

Thank you for that response ! I just can't give or sell any of my shoes, unless they hurt my feet. Then out the door with them, so you can say every one of them are comfortable. I have an outfit for every pair, I need them. Hope you and the love of your life are doing fine,may God Bless.
