    How many pairs of shoes do you own?

    Stupid thread I know, but wife and I laid all our shoes out over the weekend to find the odd men out... I had 45 pair while my wife had nearly 60... Didn't include rollerblades, ski boots nor slippers (NOR flippers) but everything else.

    45 pairs, you should lose your man card for that.

    Re: How many pairs of shoes do you own?

    To be fair to the OP, I went to HS with a kid that wore a different pair of shoes every day for school his senior year. He had at least 150 pairs of shoes. And no job. But a rich daddy.

    Re: How many pairs of shoes do you own?

    That I actually wear on a weekly basis: 3 pairs in the winter and in the summer the number goes to 1-2 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of flip flops.

    If I count the total number of pairs that I own currently, no matter how often I wear them then the number is around 10 Pairs.

    Re: How many pairs of shoes do you own?

    2 pair flip flops
    1 pair target Vans knock offs
    1 pair dress casual everyday shoes
    1 pair dress shoes for work
    1 pair tennis shoes for working out
    1 pair old tennis shoes for yard work
    1 pair cleats for various rec league stuff
    1 pair hiking boots
    1 pair wrestling shoes
    1 pair of those 5 finger atrocities

    11 pairs of shoes. That's more than I expected. Though in my defense other than the flip flops I don't own more than 1 pair of any of the same kind of shoe.

    Not your average female here. I may have 8 pair (three of which have holes in the toes because they're broken in & comfortable and I refuse to throw them away...)
