How many pairs of shoes do you own? How many of those do you actually wear?

I own too many shoes, as I discovered when we moved. I got rid of a bunch, but I still own too many. 

I wear probably 2 or 3 consistently.

Two pairs, the dog got to the rest of them.  I wear both pairs, one pair of tennis shoes, one pair of dressy flats.

About 20 pair.     Half work,   half casual/other.    

I'm fairly good at donating or pitching any that I don't wear but there's always a few that I really like but just don't wear much.

Shoes are so HARD to purge! Because even of you need special occasion shoes once or twice a year, financially I kind of need to keep those, I do not want to buy another pair every time, I have a formal event!

I rotate through probably about 10 ballet or flats for work, then another 5 for casual wear. But I have like 10 pairs of heels for special events! It's crazy, then throw in winter boots, crazy amount of shoes here!!

I have a lot, but I wear a lot. probably 10-15 in regular rotation. and probably another 10 pair that I wear occasionally, but not regularly.

Probably 20. A couple of casual pairs and a bunch of summery heeled sandals for work.
Winter though, I need some new ones.

I own about 70-80 right now, cut down a bit. I wear every pair within the year. I cycle them out between storage spaces because I don't have enough room for them lol. Right now my flats and sandals are in my mudroom (have a bookcase for them there), and my boots and wintery boots are in my basement. About to move all my fancy shoes to my bedroom as we just rearrange and I can fit a bookcase there now.

It's ridiculous to some, but I'm in fashion and shoes have been a passion of mine my entire life :-)

I have flip flops that I wear daily to & from work & crocs that I wear at work (daycare- infant room)

Tennis shoes in the fall & spring when it's too cold for flip flops.

Boots for winter

2 inch heels that I HATE I wear once in awhile for church- usually when I'm singing.
