  • I would not be a good gauge for that.

    I have paid up to 4 figures for a pair of shoes.

  • i am very practical..... i would have to know what it was made out of..... if it was versitle (like is it stilettos you could only wear once in a while, or a shoe you could wear every day). if it was a really nice quality leather dress shoe and i had a professional type job i could wear them every day then i would go for it. if it's a pair of 5" stilettos i would only wear once and could hardly walk in forget it lol.

  • For used shoes no more than fifty cents (I don't care what brand they are they are used and they are shoes end of story) and new no more than $45.

  • I depends 100% on what your disposable income is.


    That is a reasonable amount for a few people.... for others that would equal a months rent.

  • I don't think I've spent more than $60 on a pair of shoes. Those were originally $100 and I found them on sale around Christmas. They're really nice boots that are comfortable and go with all my pants and a few skirts and dresses. I usually try to spend no more than $30. I'm cheap lol.

  • I would only pay that much for a pair of shoes if they were great looking, the most comfortable shoes ever made and lasted for years
