Sugar said...

Oh, that betch Emma Watson is a dang liar! LIAR!

(That was for you, Marieeeeee!)

Though she was great in This is The End. Such a funny movie. Made me even like James Franco a bit.

I think I counted recently, and it was thirteen. I buy shoes like a guy: black ones, brown ones, and athletic ones. I DID buy two pairs of silver ones today, though, to wear at my brother's wedding and reception. So that makes fifteen.

Merlin D. Bear said...

I'm a stereotype.
Once upon a time, I got the nickname "Imelda" because I literally had a closet in my apartment filled to overflowing with shoes.
I'm down to about 40 pair now.
45 if we're counting boots too.
55 if you add in sneakers.

Cathy said...

How many I own is very different from how many I actually wear.

canopener said...

What do you get when you put 50 lawyers in a room with 50 lesbians?
One hundred people who don't do dick.

megan00m said...

50 bajillion spread in closest over two states..just like toothys sexuality. Ha!

Karen said...

@canopener, that made me LOL. :)

megan00m said...

F me...CLOSETS! LOL....BWAAAHAHAHA

Renoblondee said...

I'd say about 20-25 and that includes my running shoes, flip flops, sandals, boots, heels and everyday shoes.

canopener said...

Q: What's black and brown and looks good on a lawyer?

A: A Doberman pinscher.

Cathy said...

And I'm sure that Emma really does only own eight pairs of shoes... but that doesn't count all the pairs that she borrows for events.

rhinovodka said...

Probably around 20, a lot less than I used to have.

canopener said...

A lawyer is driving down the street with his arm out the window. Another car swerves too close and sideswipes him, causing severe damage to his car, and dismembering his arm. The lawyer pulls over to the side and jumps out of his car, immediately lamenting the damage to the other driver. "My car! It was a brand new Porsche! How are you going to make this up to me?! You better have insurance." The other driver looks disgusted and says "You lawyers are all the same. You care so much about money you didn't even notice your arm is gone!" The lawyer looks down at his arm and exclaims "Oh my god...my Rolex!"

Pip said...

I think Emma should come here and speak for herself. Drunk, of course.

canopener said...

A lawyer, a doctor, and a janitor die in a car accident and find themselves at the pearly gates. St. Peter explains "We have limited space, so we've been deciding admission based on a trivia contest." St. Peter then turns to the janitor and asks "What was the name of the famous ship that hit an iceberg and sank, killing all those people?" The janitor replies "The Titanic!" "Very good", says St. Peter, "you may enter." St. Peter then turns to the doctor and asks "How many people died on that ship?" The doctor replies "about three thousand?" "Close enough," says St. Peter, "you may enter." St. Peter then turns to the lawyer and says "Name 'em."

If you don't count the sneakers, the flip-flops, the slippers, the clogs, or the slip-ons, I own pair to match each of my class rings.

prolixe said...

*one pair, that is

Char said...

An uncountable number.

We just packed because we move tomorrow and I have a full LARGE suitcase of shoes - stuffed full, PLUS all my athletic shoes (turf shoes, cleats, etcs) are in my sports bag, plus I put shoes in my husband's shoe bag, plus I keep finding MORE of my shoes around the house! I think the answer might actually be that I have infinite shoes. They multiply and appear out of nowhere.

I fucking hate Crocs.

joymama said...

At one time, when I was a bit more shallow and thought everyone was looking at me (product of my mom's obsessive comments 'do you want to look like that') I owned dozens of pairs of shoes and closets of clothes.

Now that good with myself and made the choice to live simply so I can travel, I own one pair of boots, one pair of sandals, a pair of pumps, a pair of wedges, chacos and house slippers. Each one good quality so I can keep them for several years. So six.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I have a little over 50 pair

Gayeld said...

What do you call a car full of lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

A good start.

V said...

Last I counted, I was around 312...I might have a problem. Of these, I probably rotate through 50 on a regular basis.

NomNom83 said...

There are about 3-5 pairs at any given time that I wear on the regular. Couple heels, couple flats/flops and a more practical "walking shoe" I guess you could call it. That leaves about 20 pairs chilling out for the season.

I also have a few pairs that just got put away with my maternity clothes b/c they only fit me when my feet were swollen up like footballs. If I'm real lucky, I'll get to wear them again in the next couple years!

Honeykatt said...

I have Six in regular rotation. That's not counting flip flops or boots, then I'm at 12

Gayeld said...

Four.

Unless we're counting my daughter's.

Yuffie said...

I'd say about thirty, especially since I just ordered two more pairs today...

Marieeee said...

THANKS! Hopefully I won't be needed as entertainment with all these trolls. Haha.

Amanda's Wig said...

When Emma was drunk yesterday, she broke a heel off here fave pair! Now it's only 7!

Rodney Dice Gottfried said...

First comes blow, den comes boozes, den comes Lindsay wit a torso fulla bruises.

Whaaaat??? She gets paid to be a punchin bag. Some hewers are inta dat and don’t gotta be paid. I had dis one hewer could take a left hook betta den Earnie Shavers. Get da fuck outta here.

Gayeld said...

I plead the fifth on how many pairs Grace has.

Rodney Dice Gottfried said...

Selena, Selena, quite contrary, shave dat pussy it’s SO…. DAM….HAIRY.
What, I seen the picturez. She was crouched on da beach and it looked like she was wearing an angora sweata unda her panties. Dafuqizat? Listen honey, I gotta go to da dentist fer a haircut, I’m takin it outta yer tip.

Rodney Dice Gottfried said...

Whats the difference between a Kardashian and a Toilet?
The toilet doesn’t want to cuddle after you shoot your cum in to it.

I apologize to any toilets in the audience who may have been offended by my last joke. Please don’t call AFLAC and threaten to cancel your policies.

LottaColada said...

That's a personal question

DewieTheBear said...

Last time I counted, was about 150 but have added to it since.

I know I shouldn't but Rodney Dice and Canopener are making me laugh.

Honestly it's more interesting than this question..Although V wins the Imeda Marcos award for the day. Dayum woman! I'm jealous.

Rodney Dice Gottfried said...

Do you know what is sad about an Escalade going over a cliff with 2 Kardashians in it?
And Escalade could seat 7 Kardashians.

My apologies to any Escalades who may have taken that last joke as an insult. You are wonderful vehicles, but your miles per gallon makes you unfeasible to the average consumer.

Anonymous said...

I like that one trolly trollerson, but you still suck.
I have maybe seven pairs of shoes.

Amber said...

I'm in the same boat as Merlin. I had around 60, I think I may have cut it in half now.

ShoeWhoreEmmaWatsonBetches said...

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that this is the question!! LOL. Yes, I really do only own 8 pairs of shoes. Obviously the ones that I wear to premieres and such are not ones that I own. They're just borrowed for the event!

MISCH said...

are you kidding...oh Emma I don't believe you

MISCH said...

are you kidding...oh Emma I don't believe you

mygeorgie said...

I've been away for a while, my poor city is devastated with all the flooding :(....so can I ask....What the fuck is going on around here?! Geezus I'm confused, with all the trollies coming & going it's time consuming here now. One *just* gets used to knowing who's comments to skip over, then you have to start that list all over again. It's like switching grocery stores: aggravating as hell.


mygeorgie said...

I used to have a shoe addiction, now it's plants & gardening. So about 10 pairs of shoes & truck loads of plants, just this season. They are also really hard to hide from hubby so I just say "everything was half price, Isn't that great?!!"

He's onto me :/

auntliddy said...

I am the rare female who doesnt get the shoe love thing. But i still hv more than 8, but they are sandals and sneakers.

ShoeWhoreEmmaWatsonBetches said...

Sugar, you are my favourite betch on here! Marieeee and I are cool now, she's not a betch yet but we'll see. Glad you liked TITE. And yes, I absolutely snogged Franco but that was it :) about to go get my drink on expect hilarity later!

Iceberg said...

Five. 2 pairs of boots for winter, 2 pairs of sandals for summer, and one pair of dress shoes.

ms snarky said...

at last count, 85 not including boots and thong type sandals.

Mary Ann said...

Four. (Two pairs of walking shoes, one pair of hiking boots, and one pair of dress shoes.)

I do have three pairs of slippers I wear around the house as well.

I am not a fashionista. :)

8=====D - RememberKermitGosnell said...

Four. Two walking and two for work (clean and stuff). I'm a macho, and I think they are too many.

me said...

Well, I guess I might have a shopping problem. (150 plus) Don't judge!!

kpist said...

about 100, I know, I know. Must get help!!!Damn you Ebay

RowdyRodimus said...

Four pairs of shoes (2 pairs of tennis shoes, 1 pair of dress shoes and 1 pair of deck shoes for when I have to go outside in the middle of the night) and 3 pairs of boots (1 pair of regular combat boots, 1 pair of Jungle combat boots and my old pair of wrestling boots from when I did some indy stuff.

littlejenny said...

ugh, please don't make me not like Emma... 8 pairs of shoes? Louboutin, please.

megan00m said...

That shiz was funny and no one laughed..whawhaaa...oh well

Jolene Jolene said...

I have about 120 or 130, last I checked. That includes flippy floppies and flat sandals and sneakers etc etc. And @joymama - I'm a happily married gal and perfectly okay with myself...I just care about how I look and what I wear as well! They're not mutually exclusive. :)

Hegg said...

Two good pairs and two ratty should go in the trash pairs. So 4??
I have never known why anyone would need more than 7.

Kels said...

Preach! So true. God it's so true.

CDAN Reader said...

This is actually an interesting topic! But not half as interesting as all of these judgments/misconceptions. There are a million factors that contribute to the number of shoes a person owns:

Gender. Unless he’s a supermodel, guys have less shoes than us. Yes, that’s a blanket statement!

Location: Do you live in an area where the seasons change dramatically? If so, then you’ll need more shoes.

Occupation: Self employed? High profile office job? Work from home? Service job? Healthcare? Teacher on his feet all day, etc.

Commute: If your trip consists of going from your living room to your car in the garage, to the parking lot at the office park and back home again, then your shoe needs are different from the girl that walks to/from the bus stop or train station on a daily basis.

Extra Curricular Activities: Are you a runner? Do you go to the gym? Play tennis? Ride bikes? Go hiking? You get my drift.

All of that being said…I have 90 – 100 pairs of shoes! Bwhahahaha! And I’m the LAST THING from a vapid Carrie Bradshaw wanna-be that’s trapped in the 90’s. My shoes are all moderate or sale priced and they get worn down/thrown out/replaced on the regular, so 90 to 100 seems accurate. I also have hard-to-fit feet, so if I find something that works, I usually buy 2 or I get and 2nd pair in another color. But, I’m including ALL SHOES in this count: Formal shoes (that go with that 1 friggin’ outfit for that wedding/event), dress shoes, work shoes, sandals, sneax, boots (high-heeled boots, riding boots, snow boots, rain boots), flip-flops, etc.

Yup, I think Emma isn’t counting all of the sh*t she gets on loan from stylists/designers or her freebies. Maybe she really only owns 8 pairs?

V said...

Haha! It's a bit much, but I love shoes! The good thing is if you are friends with me 1) you have unlimited borrowing privileges and 2) once a year I have a shoe/clothes trading party/giveaway. Whatever goes unclaimed is donated to a local DV shelter.

PugsterMom said...

32. Three are sneakers and two of those are backup sneakers I should toss/give away. Three are boots. About five are flip flops I never wear. Four are 6-inch heels I rarely wear but keep because 1) I occasionally do wear them and 2) I'm over 50 and feel good that at my age I still CAN wear them.

PugsterMom said...

Guys have no reason to buy shoes in different heel sizes. My husband just bought new shoes. He's so excited. They're brown. To me they're boring. All guy shoes are boring. Which is why I actually liked the blue shoes Scott Disick was pappedbin this week. They were cool. Don't judge me. :)

PugsterMom said...

Papped in...

Fluffy White Clouds said...

I love all the different commentaries on shoes!

I think my number is about 200 or so not including thong sandals and flip flops...I'm not super tall so clothes don't always fit right, but a good looking, sexy shoe, now that's a different story....

As for the trolls is it wrong they make me laugh as they come in droves trying to mess with CDAN. I think they will get bored before we get annoyed...??

Me said...

6. But, that's kind of because every time I'm going to buy a pair one of my kids need shoes. So, they get the new pair and I wear what I have. I can't even remember the last time I looked at shoes for me. Doesn't matter I don't think. I wear scrubs for work and I don't date. So what difference do my shoes make.

csproat said...

256 ish

Therese said...

You know what? I don't know how many shoes I have. A bunch. And they are so pretty. But you should have asked me how many pairs I really wear. Two or three tops. I have arthritis now, no cartilage in the knees and major spurs, arthritis in my feet. Can't wear heels at all, have cranky feet, have to wear very comfortable flats. Haven't gotten around to getting rid of my darling shoes. I will be moving soon.........and then I guess it will be the moment of truth. I really do want to make a clean sweep and size down. I may take them to the next town where they accept clothes at a women's shelter. So they could do someone some good. But to answer your question, I don't know. (Poor darling shoes)

AKM said...

Wow, and I thought *I* was a minimalist. Some of you have me SO beat with only 4 or 6 pairs! I love it.

(No judgment towards the Imelda-type folks, of course! I mean, you'd damn near trip in my house, what with all the books everywhere. We all have our vices! Hee hee.)

And V, you are good people. Mwah!
