This thread was so much fun, and enlightening, that it's only right that we do one for footwear.
Along with pumps, boots, sport shoes, flipflops, and everything else, please include:
slippers
garden clogs
your gnarliest winter and rain boots

You do not need to include snowboard boots or ski boots, although figure skates might be nice.

My all-inclusive count? 33.

Oh no! I knew this was coming

Off the top of my head... maybe 50? Includes around the house slippers/flipflops.

Only counting those that I wear regularly: about 16

(a couple flip flops, 4 pumps, about 5 pairs of low-heeled comfort sandals, sneakers, 3 pairs of boots and a pair of figure skates).

Including everything - honestly, too many to count. At least 50.

Most I only wear occasionally (like super high heels), and some I don't wear anymore but can't bear to give up.

I counted 33. Which I don't think is so bad considering I live in New England so I need shoes for all 4 seasons. Plus a few are activity specific: work shoes, rain boots, snow boots, hiking boots, two pairs of sneakers for running.

Zenstyle- odd we have the exact same number. Maybe 33 is a magic shoe number.

I have 6.

Two flip flops, leather clogs, sneakers, black flats, black heels.

It would be 5 but I keep an extra pair of flip flops in case my favorite pair breaks during the winter, when they're harder to find.

The ones I can see - 84 - I also have boots (prob. 8 pair) and all my winter shoes are packed - so add another 30 or 40. Not counting my work in the yard only clogs, sneakers and flip flops.

I think I have around 20 pairs here in Boston, and another 30-35 back in California. I have a hard time passing up a good deal, and when work gets slow I have a nasty habit of shopping on Amazon I recently bought a pair of $200 Rockports for $25!

My Mom called me about 2 months after I moved to the east coast and gave me an earful because apparently I had filled the oven in the RV (my lease was up and I didn't know if I would be moving so I threw my stuff in storage and lived in their RV for 3 months before moving) with shoes and completely forgot about them after I moved. So, now my poor mother has a giant box full of my shoes in the spare bedroom
