Just wondering I was cleaning out my closet and was wondering what is average amount of shoes to each woman, to each family?

I have around 25 pairs of shoes.

Between my whole family we have around 75 pairs or more of shoes!!!!

Someone is making a killing off of us!! LOL. Just wondering if they are you all too?

  • Ha, I have 2 pairs of tennis shoes, 2 pairs of flip flops, and 1 pair of dress shoes. My husband has 1 pair of tennis shoes, 1 pair of work boots, and 1 pair of dress shoes. Our 5 month old on the other hand has 6 pairs of casual/tennis shoes and 2 pairs of dress shoes. Plus all the little booties lol. I know he can't walk yet...I've just always had a thing for baby shoes!

  • I have 2 or 3 pairs of slippers, 2 or 3 pairs of flip flops, 2 pairs of sneakers, 2 pairs of boots, and like 6 pairs of dress shoes (which I never wear lol but keep for just in case . . .). DD has 10 pairs of shoes, give or take. Her Titi is obsessed with buying her new Nikes and Timberlands. I tell her its pointless, because I won't put them on DD until she is walking, but every holiday DD gets 3 new pairs of name brand shoes. CRAZY!!!

  • I have big feet (size 11) so shoe shopping is not fun for me. If I find shoes I like, they don't fit. So I don't have many... 1 pair of slip on sneaks (that my husband confiscated for when he goes outside to smoke), 1 pair of athletic sneakers, my Converse, a pair of flip flops. I don't think I even own dress shoes anymore because my feet got a little bigger after having kids and I haven't needed any since then. My kids have tons of shoes, most of which were given to us by my shopaholic coworker, and my husband has 3 or 4 different pair of boots (work, casual, hiking... he won't wear sneakers if we leave the house)

  • When my kids were little and shoe sizes changed every few months, I only bought two or three pairs at a time for them (one for school, one for church, and one for play), but for me, now that my shoe size doesn't change, I buy a pair I like and I keep them for YEARS!! I have a lot of shoes, but only buy one or two new pair each year.
