    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Women tend to pay close attention to the shoes you are wearing.

    Shocked that once I start counting it appears to be over 25!

    I have 50-100 ... I stopped counting at 50, but I'm counting boots and sandals in that number. Also, counting several pairs of high heeled pumps that I can no longer wear but I can't bear to part with. Heck, I have 15 pairs of black shoes alone ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    I have something more than 25 pairs currently. I used to have a lot more but they were taking up too much room and I had so many I never wore any more, I tossed the very worn ones and donated the good ones to Goodwill.

    Use to be over 100+

    Now rotate between 60+ pairs divided up into seasons. Louboutins (big weakness), Manolos, Bally, Chanel and Prada are the staples for heels and dressy flats. I love Repetto for casual ballet flats. Boots are a mix of Chloé and Frye, a couple pairs of Hunter wellies.

    The seasons selection are stored in an antique display cabinet along with perfume for easy visual reference and because it's exceedingly pretty to look at. Don't start me on handbags and scarves.

    I manage to keep footwear purchase impulses under control, but I could easily get into collecting sneakers and I have been known to by the same pair of shoes in several different colours.

    I also feel the call of boots - There is a pair of Wolverine 100 miles in rust that with my name on them...

    If you aren't averse to sharing them, I'd love to see pictures some time. Do you wear them, or is it just for the sake of collecting?

    I've cut down some, but right now I have 80 pairs of trainers, mostly adidas and Puma, with some Italian brands thrown in. Did have Gripfast 10-hole, NPS 11-hole and Grinders 8-hole, but my old room-mate stole them all, despite being UK12s and no chance of fitting. Right now I just have an old pair of Chippewa logger boots (made in USA). I wear everything in rotation, as I absolutely despise wearing the same pair of shoes two days in a row.

    Shoes: 8 (6 of which are Fluevogs and 2 models of which are duplicates in different colours--I'm a Fluevog freak)
    Sandals: 5 (incl. one historic)
    Boots: 1
    Slippers: 1

    Thanks for this topic. It gives a chance to reflect on the state of one's shoedom.

    Does anyone else buy the same shoes of a favourite model in different colours?

    I used to collect sneakers as a hobby so I own close to 100 pairs, which I plan to sell in the future for a profit. But my current rotation of shoes that I actually wear on a daily basis is 7 pairs.

    Sadly I spend all my extra money on perfume and not on shoes . I have like 5 pairs of shoes . Sad but true .

    Yes it is unusual to have that many for a chap but not for a girl, I just have two pairs of shoes one for work and the other for casual.
