How Many Pairs Of Shoes Do You All Own?
I was cleaning out my closet earlier (always a job that takes a couple of days ) and rearranging my shoes, I thought it might be fun to ask everyone how many pairs of shoes they own and what kind of shoes that may be.

So here's my list:
- black low dr. Martens
- black globe sneakers
- ancient adidas sneakers that were blue in a previous life, but after years of wearing them are now a charming grey-blue with paint-stains on them. I still love them though.
- Teva sandals, not very elegant but really comfy for taking long walks, I’ve had them for 4 years and they are still not worn out!
- dark brown leather strappy flat sandals that have been in my possession for about 5 years
- cream Audley slingbacks with a 5 cm. heel
- the measuring tape sandals I posted before (under 'I bought new shoes-what do you measure')
- black ballet type flats with 6 elastic 'mary jane' straps
- black army boots that I bought about 6 years ago and haven't worn in about 3 years because I don't like the army-message that they send out
- sky blue flip flops
- black cotton chinese mary jane type house-shoes
- black wool house shoes for the winter
- limegreen pumps, hideous as hell, but I wore them in a play in highschool and just to look at them makes me remember the good times I had
- black nike's for gymclass in highschool (never worked out since )

God I wish I was rich so I could buy more shoes
I may have forgotten some, but that's my humble list. Now share yours!

I'll list the ones I can remember, but I don't think it's very interesting, no fancy designer shoes or anything...

- Dark brown leather trainers
- Rainbow stripey converse shoes (my new )
- Beige and red converse sneakers
- Black leather ballet flats
- Black strappy 4-inch stilettos
- Gold strappy stillettos (my favourite pair, they used to be my grandmother's)
- Gold flat strappy sandals
- Olive green suede loafers (look like little elf shoes! )
- White slip-in shoes
- Dark blue slip-in shoes
- Dark blue 'boxing' shoes (impulse buy, I hate them and have never wore them )
- Black knee-length boots
- Deep red ankle stilletto boots
- Black high Dr.Martens
- Leather/white walking thong sandals
- Leather flip-flops
- 'Roman' leather flat sandals
- Dark brown flat strappy sandals
- Beige mules
- Black high heeled strappy sandals
- Black slip-in sandals
- Dark grey flat strappy sandals
- Wedges with dark leather straps ( )
- Black loafers (almost never worn, they're not very 'me')
- Black trainers
- Red New Balance trainers
- White with pink flowers converse lookalike shoes
- Red high heeled strappy sandals with white trim (super-cute!)
- Turquoise ballet slippers with dark blue embroidery
- A collection of rubber flip-flops, including stripey ones, turquoise, red, pink, black...
- Tan ankle boots
- 3 pairs of chunky winter shoes from ART, a necessity for winter here.
- Black strappy wedges ( Bought the last time wedges were cool, and I was young and stupid! )
- Black Nike aerobic shoes...needless to say they haven't been worn much by me...
- My beloved old old dark blue and white Puma sneakers

These are the ones I can remember that I have in the apartment (wish I had much much more )...I usually give away trainers and other 'everyday' shoes to my sister when I get tired of them, or else I wouldn't have enough room.

-(Four year old falling apart but still in tact) gray Puma sneakers (they've stopped making them! )
-Light/medium brown square toe wooden soled flat maryjane-ish shoes, made by Miu Miu, I found them in a second hand store, so they were not very expensive!
-Black flat maryjane shoes with two bunjee cord straps and gold-colored fastenings
-An assortment of black, pink, and white, leather and canvas ballet slippers with suede bottoms that I got from the place I used to work! You pull the elastic strings at the front so they scrunch up and you tie them in a bow!

So I guess in total, it makes about...oh...3 real shoes, 6 if you count the slippers!

*hot pink round-toe flats with big button on toe
*black rubber Old Navy flip-flops

*basic black calf-length, mid-height heel, pointy-toe black boots from Nine West
*10-eyelet black Dr. Martens boots
*black calf-length "sporty" boot from Nine West
*tan flat suede sandals I wear to work everyday
*white faux Dr. Scholls sandals that I used to wear to work

*brown pointy-toe quasi-cowboy boots with ruched front

At least 30 pair that I like and wear. I just bought some new Michael Kors that I am in love with.

I clean my shoes out regularly and throw the old stuff away.

I'm going to try and remember everything, including the ones I've got in storage away at uni...

- 8-eye apple green dr. martens
- 20-eye black knee-length dr. martens that my friend just gave me
- black suede pointy-toed victorian lace-up knee boots
- black plain knee boot with block heel
- houndstooth patterned wellies with pink soles and "PINK" logo, special edition from thomas pink

- black rounded-toe ballet flats from office
- black flats with curled up pointy-toe from topshop
- black peep-toe heels (that look like barbie-doll shoes)
- black pointy-toed stilettos with mary-jane style ankle strap
- black chunky heeled mary janes with thick velcro strap
- black taffeta formal shoes with four inch heel and square toe with bow
- white patent heeled mary janes that I got in 7 years ago and have held onto, waiting till I would eventually find something to wear with them...they're very mod
- white and gold flats with thick horizonal stripes from perry ellis, vintage from the 1960's
- tan penny loafers with stacked wooden heels and a horse and carriage insignia embossed on the top of the heel (if anyone knows what label this represents I'd like to know), vintage from the 1970's
- brown heels that lace-up corset-style, vintage from the 1970's, but look 1930's

- black leather dooney & bourke trainers with tan soles and stitching
- white canvas keds-style trainers with thick soles...cute, but I never wear them
- white and red puma trainers

- white sandals with 8 horizontal straps and a low tan stacked wooden heel
- black canvas slides with thick soles from old navy
- black patent flip-flops
- black flip-flop from old navy
- turqoise sequined, pink sequined, and lavendar sequined flip-flops all from old navy
- black and white graphic print flip-flops from H&M

as you can probably guess, I'm the world's worst packrat and have a hard time getting rid of anything.

ot: I don't think they're hermes... looking at them right now, the insignia looks like a horse carriage racing - a chariot or something... very odd mystery that's puzzled me since I bought them.
