How many pairs of shoes do you own? 3

They say that one can never have too many pairs of shoes. There’s those that you rely on time and again, and then those that are just so beautiful that you only take them out on the rarest of occasions, or maybe not all – only viewing them looking pretty in your wardrobe.

It’s a common occurrence for someone to stand in front of their wardrobe and say ‘I have nothing to wear.’ This also happens in terms of shoes, leading to way too many to choose from – especially when travelling. If you are ever in a situation where you have to pick only 5 pairs of shoes to get you by, make sure you have at least 4 pairs.

For the ladies:

  1. Sturdy ballet flats
  2. Pointy toe black pumps
  3. Minimalist sandals
  4. Black ankle boots

For the gents:

  1. Casual office shoes
  2. Black boots
  3. Black dress shoes
  4. Brown dress shoes

Tell us, how many pairs of shoes do you own? Do you have a favourite?

  1. One pair, now getting holes, no money to buy another pair.

  2. This article was obviously written by someone who is much younger than 60. Any podiatrist can verify that we lose the fat pads on the soles of our feet as we age. This is why most older ladies wear comfortable shoes and often require custom-made orthotics. We still like to look our best, but personally I don’t understand the apparent fascination with masses of shoes by some younger women. I’m hoping it’s only media-driven and that the silent majority have a higher measure of what’s really important in life and what’s trivial. I detest the term “killer-heels”. They’re just a modern version of Chinese foot binding as they can ruin young feet over time. Those who frequently wore stilettos in the 1960’s know about this.
