    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...)

    13 pair, if you leave out $1 flip flops.

    And two pairs of those I haven't had a chance to wear yet.

    I guess I'm lucky my foot is terribly hard to fit.

    First guess it is around 12 pairs

    1(+2 old) - basketball shoes
    2 - running shoes/sneakers
    1 - tennis shoes
    2 - sandals
    1 - hiking/snow boots
    1 - hiking shoes
    1 - cleats
    1(+2) - casual shoes
    1 - dress shoes
    plus quite a few old sneakers that are never worn.

    I probably physically have 18-20 pairs of shoes.

    I looked in my locker and counted 7 pairs of golf shoes.

    At home I have 10 pairs.
