    I feel this is a good amount of shoes.

    2 pairs of Vans
    a pair of Nike SB's
    a pair of running shoes
    2-3 pairs of boots varying in ruggedness

    I think I counted to 60 pairs a year ago or so I shift between regularly between...
    That does not count useful but ugly shoes like crocs, wellies etc. or shoes I don't even know why I own but refuse to get rid of...

    To make me sound less insane, I've had the same size since I was 11 and I have the same size as my mom. I buy most of them second hand.

    I own mostly platform shoes and heels

    Red high converses
    Burgundy low converses
    Grey high converses
    Navy blue sneakers
    Black sneakers
    Running sneakers
    Dress black shoes
    Hiking Boots
    Black winter boots
    Navy blue winter boots
    and slippers, but I don't think they really count, I have quite a few of those.

    I feel I have such a limited range to pick from, I definitely will be adding a few extra colors this spring.

    I own 2 pairs of (hi-top) shoes.
    One of which is a bit small and is only worn when it is absolutely necessary.

    Total 11 pairs, various colours shapes and sizes. 12 if you count dancing shoes :grin:
    2 pairs of those are regular business shoes to be worn with suits.

    Some of them I ought to toss away, but I just can't bright myself to because of memories :/

    So I have to add another pair of shoes, for a grand total of 10 pairs.

    I just bought a pair of Vans, simply cause they're Vans and they're awesome.

    Hmm...maybe you're on to something there. I'd definitely say it qualifies as an obsession. :lol:

    That reminds me I need some moto boots to match my jacket!

    I think I have five pairs. Two pairs of athletic shoes, two pairs of boots and one pair of sandals. Although one pair of gym shoes are "back-up" shoes, in case my primary pair get very wet or wear out, I always have another pair to wear. The sandals I rarely wear because my feet are too ugly to wear open toed shoes with no socks.

    Not so many...

    I usually have

    1 or 2 for the given season
    1 for running
    1 for formal occasions.

    I'm not really a shoe fanatic :grin:

    2...1 pair of work boots and 1 pair of sneakers, I don't think this stereotype is really accurate, I have straight friends who are obsessed with shoes and have lots of em, i don't really care about shoes, well quantity anyways, i just care about quality and i do mean QUALITY lol my work boots are 160dollar composite toed Wolverines (their like steel toe but better) and my sneakers are 140 dollar Nikes. I'll spend a lot because they last a long time

    Just counted. 22 pairs of shoes that I wear (fairly) regularly. Then another couple of old pairs in a drawer I hardly ever wear but can't put myself to throw them out.

    Probably around 50 pairs including womens boots 3 pairs, trainers for summer and winter about 20 pairs,walking boots 4 pairs, walking shoes about 4 pairs, shoes for gardening(old pairs).
    I'm going to have a clear out and put some on Ebay I think and try to stick to around 20 pairs. Yesterday I had to force myself to walk past a trainer shop that was having a big sale on.I tell people that I have enough shoes to last me 20 years without buying another pair and they dont believe me.
