    Why do women need 10 pairs of shoes when they have only 2 feet?

    Always amazes me why women need so many pairs of shoes when men are happy with one or two.

    I love to dress up for different occasions. 10 pairs is rather modest in my opinion!  Sometimes I want foxy heels, winter boots, flat ballet pumps, walking shoes etc.  There are so many colours to choose from too!  I have just bagged up five pairs of shoes for Oxfam where I work as a volunteer, so If I don't want them someone else will be able to enjoy them.  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!

    First of all no need to stereotype, I only own three pairs myself. But it seems pretty understandable to match your shoes with an outfit, they are part of the outfit, you probably own more than 10 shirts?

    Well that's like asking why you have more than one shirt, one pair of pants, one pair of socks. You only have one body, so it's logical that you'll only need one article of clothing for it. However, clothes get smelly and need to be washed and sometimes people grow out of them or they start falling apart, but that's not necessarily the same with shoes. I live in a state where it's ungodly hot in the summer and snowing in the winter. So am I only allowed to have snow boots and a pair of flip flops? Or is it ok that I have sneakers to go jogging in and high heels to wear when I go out on dates? And what about my husband who has two different pairs of shoes just for his job?

    Not all women need ten pairs of shoes, but the same way you have ten shirts that aren't all the same color or design, women have ten pairs of shoes for different occasions and outfits. A pair of red pumps shouldn't be worn with a green blazer and business skirt and they're definitely not office-friendly. The exact same way a cut off t-shirt isn't appropriate for a CEO to wear to work or for anyone to wear into a fancy restaurant.

    Shoes, like clothes, are an accessory. Men might be happy with one or two pairs, but that's the difference between the genders: we're a chromosome apart. Maybe the need for shoes rests on that extra X.

    They same reason a person buys a pack of cigarettes, they can only smoke one cigarette at a time too but they like to smoke cigarettes. Ok we like shoes, so we buy several pair at a time. It's a woman thing.. I take care of Rosemary so I don't have to worry about no man asking me about nothing I buy.

    Its a woman thing, we like to have a variety to choose from, plus not all shoes match every outfit so you need a selection to mix and match with

    JEDIJESSICUH hit the nail on the head! I think a nice pair of shoes really complete a look. You may be surprised, but men do notice these things!

    Many shoes for many looks.  It is the same as any other article of clothing you have different kinds for different occasions and outfits. You cant wear sneakers to something formal.  Well you could but that's what heels are for just like wearing boots for hiking or heels on a date.
