As I was driving into work this morning, I was listening to a husband complain on the radio about how he has no closet space in his bedroom because he wife has too many shoes. I sat at a red light confused at this complaint for two reasons: 1. Why do you share a closet with your wife? I’m convinced there’s no way a man and woman can share a closet and expect everything to be fine. 2. There is no such thing as too many shoes.
It got me thinking about my abundance of shoes and I realized I have absolutely no idea how many pairs of shoes I own. According to the Daily Mail, the average women owns 19 pairs of shoes but only wears seven.
Both men and women are usually drawn to one article of clothing more so than another. For instance, some men may be obsessed with hats, jerseys or sneakers, while women love shoes, jeans or handbags…sometimes all three.
Why is it that most women are drawn to shoes?
Shoes will never let you down. Think about it. If you lose or gain weight your shoes will still fit your feet. They support you while you walk or run so you don’t tear up and ruin your much-needed feet. Heels sculpt a woman’s body making her look taller, sexier and more confident. If constructed of fine quality, like leather boots, they will last a lifetime. There’s no better feeling than owning a pair of beat up leather boots for years and years. Shoes tell a story and carry memories.
