You Can Never Have Too Many Shoes

I have a few addictions in my life, pushchairs, wraps, coffee to name a few. There is one addiction that I can't seem to kick, shoes!! I was always under the impression that you can never have too many shoes, well that is until one of my daughter's moaned because my shoes were now taking up space on her designated shoe shelf, oopsie.

So I decided it was time that I had a sort through and maybe, just maybe get rid of a couple of pairs, this was in no way a definite!!

Turns out that I have a tiny 49 pairs :)

shoe collection


When I broke it down I have :

10 pairs of trainers/plimsolls
12 pairs of various boots
4 pairs of sandals/flip flops
3 pairs of flats
20 pairs of heels

shoes converse adidas

shoes iron fist heels converse

shoes converse nike adidas

shoes sandals


Now I don't think that is too bad but I have to admit that I haven't even worn some of them, they have been left to gather dust, feeling unloved. 

Although I'm quite pleased that I still have a pair trainers that I bought when I was 15 years old, making them the grand old age of thirteen!!!

So how many of pairs of shoes do you own, do you have the same addiction as me or is there something else that you seem to have many variations of??

  2. Oh my goodness I would hate to count, I have so many like you that have sat there gathering dust and I keep telling myself I will one day wear them or need them or what if I had an outfit to match someday. I love shoes, I struggle because I am a half size and no shoe ever seems to be comfy it's either too big or too small. So I am always buying new ones and then throwing them in the closet in hate and attempting to find another pair to wear. A girl can never have too many shoes I don't think! Except maybe Mariah Carey. hahaha Thanks for linking up Share With Me and the continual blog support and love. #sharewithme

  5. I do have a lot of black shoes, if I'm honest, and often have to stop myself buying more. I love shoes. They're the one thing you can wear regardless of size so always help perk up an outfit!

  6. Wow so many shoes! I'm quite good with shoes and if I don't wear them then I give them to charity or throw them away. My addiction is makeup and skincare, I have loads of that! xx #sharewithme

  7. I think it might be time that you ditched a few - at least the 15 year old pair of trainers lol! You do seem to have a particular penchant for the multi-coloured heels!! I am bookmarking this to show my husband. He thinks I have way to many pairs of shoes but I've got nothing on you lol! #sharewithme

  10. I do love shoes but my feet have changed a lot over the last five years - they are wider than they used to be so I got rid of lots of shoes that didn't fit any more. I'm stuck in about three pairs at the moment and find it hard to find shoes that fit any more *sob*

    1. booooo!!! they still don't cater as well for wider feet do they. I struggle because I am a half size so a lot of the time my shoes are a bit too big, probably why I wear them once and buy another pair lol x
