Having 10 1/2 wide/narrow feet sucks. I own very few shoes.

Oh, and weird- when I was really young and my mom would take me to a department store, I would bee-line it for the shoe department and try on all of the high heels until she was done shopping. haha I just remembered that!

I have probably about 20, but have very specific taste. I guess that's just the designer in me coming out. I analyze the color pallete, pattern, hardware, material, heel and toe shape, heel height, and how they all work together! My picky taste saves me money though!! haha, when I find a pair that just mesh, my heart melts and I MUST buy them no matter what the cost!!

I put myself in the 50-75 range even though I've never actually counted how many pairs I have. However, considering I tend to buy shoes from DSW's clearance racks every time I go there and that in the last year, I've bought over 10 pairs of shoes from there alone, I may even be closer to the 100+ range if I include the shoes I've left behind in Cali. I love shoes! :)

I thought 16~20 pairs that I own was a lot....but 60??? wow.

I think I have about 30 pairs. I used to have more, but I did a majoe shoe-purge when we moved two years ago (I think I got rid of about 20 pairs). Lately, I've been thinking about reorganizing my closet, and part of that involves purging them again. I think I can get rid of at least 10 pairs.

Between 40 and 50. But they are 80% designer shoes like Marc Jacobs, Louboutin, Chloe, Jimmy Choo. They just ruin me. I try to have all kind of shoes and lot of different colors. For good quality shoes and not designer I love Jonak in France, or Nine West and Minnetonka. And I use all my shoes. I take care of them like babies!

Around 40 pairs. If someone has 100, their shoes must be like those cheapy one unless you're rich as a celebs or your lying. seriously..

I think I have 10 pairs in rotation right now, and a few more that are too worn out to wear again and should just be thrown out. It's more than I've ever had and I thought it was a lot until I saw this poll. My feet are very narrow and it's difficult to find shoes which aren't extremely painful. So I hate shopping for shoes and when I find a pair that doesn't hurt me, I wear it until it's dead. I looooove buying clothes but won't go near the shoe department unless I need something specific.

I work at a shoe store part time! Enough said. They may not all be the best quality but I don't wear shoes long before I fall in love with another pair so spending a fortune doesn't seem like a good idea. One of the girls at work has over 100 pairs of sandals alone.

I agree with Berlin... but only halfway. I only buy quality shoes, but still have over 100 pairs Maybe I've been collecting longer

I also have multiples of shoes in different colors. If the shoe is really versatile or comfortable and a good deal, I'll buy it in several colors (I do the same with clothes...). Also, if I find a casual shoe that I love and wear all the time, I'll buy a duplicate of it for when the first pair gets completely worn out. I did it recently with a pair of ballet flats I got at Urban Outfitters. It sounsd crazy but in the end, its totally worth it.

I chose 50-75 but to be honest, I have no idea. I have soooo many shoes and it kinda makes me feel guilty because I usually cycle throught the same ones. I did finally get around to organizing them a few months back though. They're in containers that I got at Target, labeled and stacked in my closet. I keep the designer shoes in their original boxes. I have a lot but I'm also a bargain shopper. I've gotten Miu Miu wedges marked 80% off and Lanvin flats marked 70% off (in an amazing plum shade too!) and Marc by Marc Jacobs heels marked 80% off. And as I write this I'm reminding myself that I'm hitting up DSW this Friday for some more shoes. Can't help it, its an addiction.

I have a shoe closet it is wonderful I can see evey pair of shoes I own I have them catagorized by color. I own currently over 100 pairs that range in price from $200-1,000 (and I have about 50 pairs of flip flops not included)I am an addict and I take very good care of them all. I get them resoled when they need it and polish and mink oil them to make them last longer if they are leather. Obsessed!

I remember when I moved out of my parents house my mom called me on a normal basis to remind me that I left about 40 pairs of shoes at her house..haha. Right now, I probably have 25-30 pairs. I only have like 5 pairs I wear on a normal basis.

Probably around 60, and I adore eeevery single pair, even the "trend whore" ones. ;) I totally got it from my mom (my dad has nicknamed "Imelda") I'm sure she's at Mariah Carey status with her collection...

I'm around 12 pairs. I'm in constant shoe denial. I love shoes. But like some of the other girls, I'm particular in my basics. A pair of nice boots, heels, and tennies. 1 pair of flip flops. Oh wait, I forgot those insane stripper boots tucked away in my closet. 13.

Wow, after having to actually think about it i have at least 25 in just flip flops (gotta love Old Navy for that)and then I have about another 10 pairs including flats, heels and running shoes. Luckily I have a walk in closet and my fiance only has like 4 pairs of shoes :)
