Too Many Shoes?


Too Many Shoes?

Too many shoes?  Not for Mrs. Cranky, no way.  There are never enough shoes for Mrs. Cranky.  What is it with women and shoes?

Mrs. C is not really a girly girl.  She does not like makeup; she is not fond of frilly clothes. 

She does like her shoes.

Last week we were cleaning out and reorganizing our closet.  Reorganizing does not mean throwing anything away, it just means putting things in different places.  The first order of business was to pull out all her shoes.  It was my job to separate them and lay them out in the hall for inspection.

Open toed or summer shoes on the right, closed toed or winter shoes on the left.
Summer shoes on right Winter on the left
 

The picture would indicate that Mrs. C has many more winter shoes than summer shoes.  That would be incorrect.  Mrs. C stores many of her shoes in her car.  Don’t ask, I don’t know.  Most of her summer shoes are still in the car.

Oh, that’s not all the shoes.  There are shoes in boxes in the closet that we did not even open.  Mrs. C says she knows what they are…I doubt it.  I suspect they have never been worn.
What to wear, what to wear?
At least if we get invited to go out, or if she buys a new dress, she has a pair of shoes that will be appropriate.

Hahahahaha…I hear you ladies and I was only joking.  Of course if there is a wedding coming up or some such event, Mrs. Cranky will be at the mall looking for just the right shoe.

I have a pair of sneakers, a pair of boat shoes, a pair of golf shoes and two pairs of dress shoes one brown and one black.  I have not bought a new pair of shoes in three years.

I don’t get it, why do women need so many shoes?

I do have to say, when Mrs. C puts on a new pair of 5” heal platform shoes that makes her walk in that special way, my pulse does race a bit.

  1. I'm clearly not a girl at all - I own 3 pairs of proper shoes (one pair I bought for my wedding) and never wear any of them. I do however have over 20 pairs of flip flops and sandles, several pairs of trainers and canvas shoes and 14 pairs of boots ...

  4. I can't explain it, it's just a fact of life. You cannot imagine the trauma of deciding which shoes to take on holiday when space is at a minimum. It's not easy you know?

  5. Why Cranky, I am just stumped. Do we need all these shoes (of course!) or do we just "want" them. Can't say that I have nearly as many shoes as Mrs. Cranky, but I do have my share. This is an interesting phenomenon.
    Another thought: Maybe it's because we buy shoes, wear them in pain, then have to buy a replacement pair that also might need a replacement because of pain.

  6. well, i feel a kinship with the no-make-up and ungirly-girl. but i'm not a shoe-collector or clothes shopper.

  7. Bwahahahahahaha. That reminds me. I need another pair of shoes, and a purse to match and then an outfit to go with the shoes and purse. Perhaps two pairs of shoes.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  8. I really don't understand this shoe attraction either. When it comes to appreciating the female form, feet are the last things I look at, although when I was younger I was fascinated with learning how to draw them.

  9. Does Mrs. C. happen to have either a Picses Sun, Moon or Picses rising sign? Pisces rules the feet and those little fish love shoes, even though fish have no feet. LOL I know b/c I'm a Pisces Sun but I concentrate on various dance shoes. I have tango shoes, smooth ballroom shoes, latin shoes, flamenco shoes, jazz shoes, tap shoes, ballet slippers and then within these categories there are the performance shoes and the practice shoes. I may have forgotten some but I could never add up all the money I've spent on dance shoes. I could prob. buy a new house with a lamborghini in the garage . I am just now tossing 19 pair of tango shoes.

    It's good you still have appreciation of 5 " heels. Ha

  10. I've never been attracted to shoes--I'd rather be barefoot!!

  11. There is an old adage that I'm pretty sure goes something like this: "I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes, until I met Mrs. C. Now I really feel sorry for myself."

  12. Yes, I think JJ wins the comment award today. As for your question, look to King Lear.

    GONERIL; What need you five and twenty, ten, or five?

    LEAR: O, reason not the need: our basest beggars
    Are in the poorest thing superfluous:
    Allow not nature more than nature needs.

    In Lear's case it was knights to guard his castle. Knights, golf clubs, dresses, shoes--everybody has something.

  13. No such thing as too many shoes. As long as they're doing their job, that's all that matters ;)

  14. Your last paragraph might have some bearing on the abundance but likely it is just that all of us (you guys also--tools and gadgets count) have something we just can't quite get enough of. I am below average on shoes but don't ask about how many coats I have.

  15. If you saw my shoes you'd think I was a lesbian.

  16. I have 8 pairs of shoes at this time. I just went to count. That includes the slippers on my feet and two pairs of summer flip-flops. There is a pair of boots somewhere also. That's it. I always having trouble finding shoes that I like so I just don't go looking very often. I tend to have too many jackets, though...

  17. Mrs. C made YOU organize her shoes? Jerkess!

    (Just kidding, Mrs. C. I understand how a gal needs just the right shoe for just the right occasion.)

  18. I am wondering if Mrs C and my wife are sisters, because you just described my wife perfectly.

    Yes many pairs of shoes and always shopping for more, she even brings some home for me at times ha ha

  19. I so admire Mrs. C if she can wear those high heels and not break an ankle or a leg!

    betty

  20. I have the black leather lace-ups (one pair) I used to wear to work, a pair of thongs, (flip flops) a pair of slippers and two pairs of sneakers, one pair is 4 years old, the other pair is 7 years old and the sole is beginning to come away at the toe, but they are still comfortable, and a pair of sandals 2 years old hardly worn, right at the bottom of the basket is a pair of sandals easily 16 years old. I think I have too many shoes.

  21. I'm with Mrs. Cranky. I have a ton of shoes. Drives my boyfriend nuts. I also have a bunch of shoes in my trunk ha ha.

  22. Mrs. Cranky's closet looks a lot like my Mom's, and I'm pretty sure there are quite a few pairs she has never worn either.

    I have more shoes than most men, but way less than most women. I have enormous feet, so it makes shoe shopping compliacted and not at all fun. I think it makes my husband really happy. He may be married to Big Foot, but at least we're not overrun with shoes.

  23. I like shoes, but don't have that many. They don't make many 'cute' shoes in size 10.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I just have a normal amount of shoes so I am very impressed with Mrs. C's collection. You go girlfriend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. A woman can never have too many shoes... clearly Mrs C is just abiding by the rules ;)
