I just came accross the poll - I'm afraid I was one of the higher scorers. oops. 

I'd like to put forward an explanation in my defense. I split my time between London and Norfolk, which means that instead of continually carrying my entire wardrobe around with me to be prepared for the weather, I do have items that I leave at one place or the other. also, there are different weathers to contend with - sandals for the summer, waterproof for when it rains, boots for winter when its cold, sturdy soled for the ice and snow ... then there are different occasions, to wear with trousers or skirt, different colours, smart or casual, work shoes etc etc. anyway, the damage is detailed below!

I have 2 pairs of brown long boots, 1 long black boots, 1 short black boots plus 2 pairs of calf length black boots that I don't really wear.

on to shoes - black mary-janes, brown suade mary-janes, black leather pumps, black velcro kickers, black smart shoes.

2 pairs of exercise trainers (adidas for inside, reebok for outside), vans trainers, a lovely pair of white gravis trainers, pale green trainer-like pumps.

now for sandals - can't remember, they're all locked away, but I think: 2 pairs of beach flip flops plus some black leather flip-flops, beige sandals, espadrilles, some red pumps with embroidery on them, shiny bllue sandals, and probably some others too. so thats at least 23.

I will give a little insight as to why I own over 50 pairs of shoes. I have a love/hate relationship with shopping. I'm one of those "in the middle" girls, I'm not skinny, and I'm not fat. But no matter what I do when I'm shopping my self esteem goes down the crapper. You can see fat here, theres a new roll there, and so on. And it is the same with bras, having been 'blessed' with a larger set, it is impossible to find a cute bra with small cute little straps so I can wear cute little tank tops. The only thing I am left with are these huge industrial strength numbers. Very Frustrating!!!!!!!

This is why I buy shoes. Shoes are the one thing that never make me look fat, I can always be fashionable with them, shoes are my comfort food after shopping. Nothing makes me feel better than a brand new pair. Speaking of, I'm off to buy a new pair of open toed pumps, black and silver satin leopard print... so excited!!!

Karen you can get them at Le Chateau stores across Canada. You would have to go to a bigger city, as smaller towns arent "hip" enough to carry them. I was able, however, to find something like it on zappos.com

Money is no object when it comes to shoes, if I want them, and can think of atleast two outfits I can wear them with, I buy them.

$20!!!!! thats 10!! i don't know about the US, but if you bought a pair in the UK for that price they'd rapidly fall apart.

having said that, I tend to get a lot of mine in sales, and have bought some nice shoes for not that much more. my most expensive (~50) were my brown boots that I wear about 5 times a week. I've had them a year so far, and apart from needing a bit of a polish they're still absolutely fantastic!

I think I'm with Meg about the reasons for being a shoe fetishist. its the same with jewellery, you don't need to be a size 8 (US 4) or less to buy them!

the only problem is that my feet are average size, so I'm usually limited for choice!
