Shoe Sniper recently conducted some interesting “Shoe Stats” that was just too good not to share.
Women in the USA own an average of 17 pairs of shoes… but wear only 3 pairs regularly.
39% of women consider themselves “a shoe person”
50% have more than 10 pairs of shoes
13% own more than 30 pairs of non-athletic shoes
And 1 woman out of 12 owns 100 or more pairs! (I have a feeling that the majority of readers of this very blog fit in this category!)
1 in 7 admit hiding at least one purchase from their spouse.
60% say they are willing to tolerate pain for fashion
59% have gotten blisters
35% had had an evening ruined by uncomfortable shoes
24% have fallen because of their shoes
Women buy about 3 pairs a year, and on average, spend $49 a pair. $150 per women per year x 154,000,000 women = $23,100,000,000
Who owns the most shoes?
- Danielle Steel – 6000 pairs
- Celine Dion – 3000 pairs
- Paris Hilton – 2000 pairs
- Imelda Marcos – 1200 pairs
- Christina Aguilera – 750 pairs
Yet it is estimated that more than 300 million children and 1.5 billion adults worldwide do not have any shoes at all.
