What is this thing about Women and Shoes?

Updated on April 1, 2013

Women and shoes are almost synonymous

Always together, never parting ways

Women and shoes are dozens of pairs

Waiting for perfect moments or dresses to don

Women and shoes are oddly enigmatic

Largely plenteous, and yet never won

Women and shoes are tempting to each other

She tries them in shops, but never fit at home

Women and shoes are funny often times

Big toes all straining in tiny stilettos

Women and shoes are a spectacle to see

Look nice in mornings, but walk barefoot home


Women and shoes are a headache to the wearer

A sprain today can’t keep pumps away

Women and shoes are a designer’s homework

Seeking day by day to sate each one’s ego

Women and shoes are a sight to behold

Abounding in pairs but none to give away


Women and shoes are a nightmare to docs

Spinal deformities that never heal forever

Women and shoes are an ailment to the wearer

A social issue that no drug can cure

What is this thing about Women and shoes?

    Hi teaches12345,

    Wishes can be turned into horses nowadays. You should consider spoiling yourself one of 'em days with whatever you consider trendy and stylish. Somebody says "The shoe makes the gal". Have a nice day.

    Never have I seen so many types, colors and styles of shoe wear. I only wish I could wear some of the more trendy styles! Enjoyed your post and thoughts on women buying shoes.

    Thanks for the confirmation kj force. I've always marveled at the obsession though. I hope you wear all of them.

    Anjili.....Women and shoes have always gone hand in hand....just as men collect tools...the more you have the more you can choose, whether or not you want to use them...I wrote a poem on a shoe obsession...and I have quite a collection...

    Hi Mhatter99. Thanks for your supportive opinion. I'm glad to share common views on women and shoes. I've lived in houses that overflow with shoes. There is that nagging temptation to auction them all. You are most welcome.

    Thank you for this. Arlene had a very impressive shoe collection. I didn't mind. She had great legs. I even helped, by buying her some, we liked.
