So, what is it about shoes and women?

For me, shoes are something that stop my legs wearing down. Nothing more.

Many women seem to be obsessed - just look at some of the comments on my last post! Women even post Shoe Porn on their blogs! What would you all think if I did that?

So, to help the male understanding of this phenomenon, can I ask you all, male or female, to answer the following questions - preferably by email to , to protect the innocent? I will analyse and post the results.

1. How many pairs of shoes do you own?

2. How often do you buy new shoes?

3. What prompts a visit to the shoe shop?

4. Does your partner ever question the need for more shoes?

5 . Given the opportunity, would you be the new Imelda Marcos?

6. Shoes or sex?

Thank you for participating!

I don't understand the obsession about shoes either. I prefer boots, but I'm definitely not obsessed. Another thing, it seems most women are obsessed with shopping. I don't understand that either as I hate shopping.

emailed... can't wait to see the results.

fascinating subject... at least for women! :)

you know.. talking about shoes... i have a pair of flip flops (which i absolutely love) that are soooo old. i've had them for about 10 yrs.. i kid you not and they are finally on their last leg. they're all hole-y and the bottom is coming off, but there's something about them and i can't throw them away. they're on the floor and all i do is look at them each day! :)

Marie - You would get on well with my wife - she get new shoes only when absolutely necessary and also hates shopping, preferring to let me do most of it.

Um Naief - I have got a pair of slippers like that. They even been of field trips with me and help hostage!

Terri - Thanks!

Ali - Thanks!

Kiki - That is one good thing, I guess - you need a fairly big weight change for you shoe size to change!

Sid - Got it, thanks!

I like your point about shoes are nothing just to stop wearing down your feet
