    I was cleaning out my closet earlier (always a job that takes a couple of days :innocent: ) 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 :ninja: 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 :blush:
    - black nike's for gymclass in highschool (never worked out since B) )

    God I wish I was rich so I could buy more shoes :rolleyes:
    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... :blush:

    - Dark brown leather trainers
    - Rainbow stripey converse shoes (my new :heart: )
    - 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! :lol: )
    - White slip-in shoes
    - Dark blue slip-in shoes
    - Dark blue 'boxing' shoes (impulse buy, I hate them and have never wore them :yuk: )
    - 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 ( :sick: )
    - 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! :yuk: )
    - Black Nike aerobic shoes...needless to say they haven't been worn much by me... :innocent:
    - My beloved old old dark blue and white Puma sneakers :heart:

    These are the ones I can remember that I have in the apartment (wish I had much much more :innocent: )...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! :cry: )
    -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!

    I recently sold a bunch of shoes, so I have only 26 pairs. I have a mix of designer (usually bought on sale @ Saks or Neiman's) shoes like Gucci, YSL, Dior, and some I buy from local boutiques: Sky, some other ones I can't remember the names of. I have a couple pairs of Steve Maddens, but they are sexy little mules with nice skinny heels. Most of my shoes are black, but some are sky blue, lavender, olive green, brown, nude, gold (strappy sandals).
