Do You Have Shoes That You Never Wear?

Apparently, when British women aren't shopping for hats, they're buying shoes.

The average U.K. gal owns 11 pairs (nearly $657 worth) of shoes they never or rarely wear, according to research by The Co-operative Insurance.

She has about 20 pairs of kicks in her closet, but she only wears nine of them. Meanwhile, she buys about eight new pairs each year at $59 each -- about $472 a year.

More than a third of women admit to buying shoes just to cheer themselves up, and another third confess to buying shoes in the wrong size, just because they liked them.

We have to come clean: We've been guilty of all of the above. Do you have shoes that you regret buying?

    I love shoes... but I LOVE sexy heels. And when I was working, I wore them all the time, but now that I am home, I have no place to wear them, so these beautiful shoes just sit in my closet looking all lonely like.

    And you know the great thing about shoes? They never betray you... they never look at you and laugh when you pull them out of the closet, like that little black dress. You know the one? You pull it out and you can hear it laughing, gasping for breath as it says.. "really.. you think I will still fit you and look good on you? bwahahahah!" Shoes... never do that. They stay loyal.

    I have shoes that I never wear, but it's only a couple pairs and they're ones that someone else got for me that were just plain painful to wear. I don't have hundreds of dollars worth of shoes in my closet, and I don't go on shopping sprees. The last time I bought a pair of shoes was for my wedding, and I still wear them on occasion.

    Actually .. I am one of those women who ONLY Purchases another pair to REPLACE something that I've worn to the point where they NEED to be replaced!

    I HATE Shopping! YES .. I ADMIT this! I can NOT stand shopping for clothes or shoes .. and finding something in a comfortable flat (or just small heel) is incredibly difficult.

    I may have a lot of shoes but I wear them all. I never had a lot of shoes until I started working in a shoe store. And not just any shoe store, a comfort shoe store. Any shoes that I don't wear are donated (or thrown out if they have fallen apart).

    I usually only have two pairs of shoes. Right now, I only have one. I need to buy another pair of dress shoes before January. I have a pair of boots now, sometimes I get sneakers instead.

    Unfortunately I do, I think shoes are a women's thing no matter what part of the country they are from. I use to be a professional office worker, and we dressed from our head to our feet, now all of those boxes of shoes are still sitting in my closet.

    I have a pair of shoes that I wear until they fall apart or become too small. I don't see any point in owning more than one pair of shoes, other than the obvious specialty [insert sport] shoes or [insert weather] shoes.
  • Alsatia... Vaius 2011/05/16 21:24:06

    There is a difference. Wearing them 24/7/365 doesn't allow them to air or dry out, increasing fungal activity in the construction materials. Some of that fungus like to work on the shoe or what else may be in it. However, to improperly store shoes causes entirely different issues.
