    I have around 100 but that includes thongs, trainers and the less exciting shoes. Heels I probably have around 70 pairs? I wear maybe 2 of them haha. I can't bring myself to throw them out though "just in case" I ever need them again.

    In the house I probably have 15 but many if those haven't been worn in years and I should cull them. I tend to wear one 'type' to death, then replace it & not throw out the old one. And I don't throw out bad buys that hurt my feet. I actually wear only 4 pairs.

    Land thongs and sandals are part of my collection as well. But I do wear them all at least. I cleared out the shoes I no longer wear. I love shoes

    Before DD was born (she's 16mo now) I counted 89 pairs... I'd probably have 100 now?

    i can't picture myself wearing them while chasing after DD lol so Most of them are such a waste now, but cant bring my self to get rid of them

    I'm no Carrie.

    Hhmmm well I used to have about 50-60 pairs and they were mostly montrous heels that I wore everywhere! I even had the blue pair of Manolo Blahnik's that Carrie wore in the first movie when she got married. God I loved those shoes! Then I met DH and he's my height (5'3) so all the heels had to go as he didn't like me wearing them as it made him feel shorter and to be honest we did look pretty silly with me towering over him. I eventually worked up the courage to sell them () and it still pains me to think about the amount of money I spent on shoes and what I let them go for!! This was almost 3 years ago.

    I now own about 25 pairs but they are mostly made up of Nike's Puma's and Adidas from when we went to Vegas. There are some ballet flats, ankle boots and one pair of knee high boots for winter. I only own one pair of heels which are like 4cm's high and were my wedding shoes.

    whoa!!! How On earth do so many of you manage to have 100 pairs of shoes? Gosh!! I have 2 (yep 2 :0) a pair of thongs and a pair of joggers (worn once!) at my defense tho my other pair of shoes broke this week so i had 3. I bought a new pair but when i tried them on in the store they were great but when i wore them again later in the day i realised they were a size small and theh made my feet go numb and sore fail. Will buy the exact same pair as i had before they broke. Im picky about shoes!! I would have a ton but my dh would crack it if i did. (he hates spendi.g money on shoes for himself and hates when i buy a pair after ive worn the others to death) sigh. Marriage, huh?

    This is pretty much me

    I've never been a shoe fanatic. When I find a comfortable pair of shoes for work I'll wear them to death rather than looking for more shoes to expand my collection.

    I have 13 pairs of heals, about 5 ballet flats, 5 sandals, 2 pairs of thongs, 1 pair of trainers and 1 pair of converse.

    Im happy with my number. It came after an ENORMOUS cull once i had DS. I dont get the chance to wear them near as much as i used to and it was making me depressed.
