Do I have a problem?


Or a really impressive, 43 pair collection?

Related: My walk-in closet doesn't have a lot of room for walking.

Also related: Maybe if the economy takes my job, I can become a reality tv star.



Worth considering.

Help me out... Give me a frame of reference. How many pairs of shoes do you have?

I had a lot more when I worked at Journeys. Now I have a relatively sane five pairs (New balance, vans, nice brown shoes, nice black shoes, DCs), sandals, and a pair of snow boots.

My girlfriend, on the other hand, could give you a run for your money. I'm not sure if she's up to 40 yet, but it's somewhere close, I'm sure.

No way in hell are you as bat-shit crazy as the people on Hoarders. My own frame of reference, of course, is maybe four pairs of shoes. But after my grandfather died, we pulled enough pairs of boots and shoes from underneath his bed that he could have worn a different pair every day of the year.

I have about 10-15 pairs, and that's including flip flops. But you, a hoarder? Nah. I hope not, because I have an insane coat collection that takes up its own closet...

lotsa people have more shoes than you, i wouldn't worry about being featured on hoarders yet. unless they are offering money or something in which case you need to pile them up better so they fall all over you when you open the door. if you count all my shoes then i have about 15 pairs. if you don't count the ones that are duct taped together or have holes that i haven't patched, then 5. but i'm not really into shoes. random kitchen crap and food on the other hand......

No, you don't have a problem. In fact, I wish my closet looked like this. : )

If I count them, that means I'm admitting I have a problem :)

Not counting because Chappy will make me get rid of some if he realizes how many I have! I will admitt that I have more than 10 pairs of black heels and almost as many pairs of boots (which is crazy considering I live in a town that celebrates summer 10 months a year). Oh, yeah, and 3 pairs of kayak shoes.

Doll Face wins. And Evan comes in second for having an unbelievable 4 pairs of shoes.

I'm feeling better about the collection. And the fact that maybe I'm not a hoarder yet. Dropping off clothes at Goodwill should balance it out, right?

8. 2 pairs of converse, 2 pairs of new balance slides, 1 pair of navy heels, one pair of brown mary jane dress shoes, 1 pair of flip flops, and one pair of rain boots.

somewhere i have 2 pairs of crosstrainer sneakers, but they haven't been heard from in a while. the 12 year old may have wandered off with them.
