Most women own 19 pairs of shoes -- some secretly

Belinda Goldsmith

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - American women have come out of the closet with a secret -- most own about 19 pairs of shoes and some have hidden purchases from their partners. [Read more at Reuters]


  1. I must be an unusual woman as I dont have 19 pairs of shoes (I have less) and my husband knows where my shoes live (I never hide anything from him) I am glad to be against the norm in so many stereotypical generalizations like this..I should make a point to feel superior or something because I have less shoes than the average woman and because I tell my husband everything ;) LOL

  2. I guess it would make you feel pretty good that you're not a demographic cliché. I pretty much break the stereotypes myself :-)

    Good to hear from you; it's been a while.

  3. First, I own waaayyy over that many pairs of shoes. It's a little hobby of mine. Some people collect seashells, others stamps, and me? Shoes! They're more functional that seashells anyways!!

    Second, thanks goodness I don't have a "partner" to hide my shoe purchases from. What a way to ruin the fun!

    I know I haven't blogged in awhile...I've been moving to Minneapolis and it's been very hectic/busy. I didn't have my computer for about a week, and then I had to get internet installed, and blah blah blah. I'll be back shortly =)

  4. I'll bet you do have an insane amount of shoes. That's par for the course among the women I know (except for Muddy of course :-) )

    I had wondered what was going on with you. Glad to hear all is well and progressing nicely. Looking forward to your next post, as always :-)
