This month’s winnerVictoria Marentette, 160 pairs
I was grounded at 18 years old from buying another pair of shoes. I had 82 at the time. I am now 44 years old. My shoe obsession started when I was 16 and I got my first job as a shoe salesclerk, which came with a fantastic discount of 25% off several shoe stores that were affiliates. I became addicted quickly. I have lived in my current home for 15 years and I turned my ensuite shower into a shoe closet as I did not have enough room in the bedroom wall to wall closet. I have never used the ensuite shower for anything but a shoe closet. Shoe racks have also started to encroach into the home office. My husband and now adult kids have been so patient and forgiving over the years, and I love and appreciate them dearly for it. I definitely have more control now that I am older, and I purge regularly, sharing with friends, to make room for the new pair that, I swear, followed me home.

I've been obsessed with shoes since I was 11 years old, I'm 15 now and I have about 168 pairs of shoes my mom thinks I have way too many pairs but what does she know my closet it full so I filled my shoes in her closet as well she got really mad and said I couldn't buy anymore shoes for 1 whole year because I have way too many pairs I think that's so unfair and she's being very unreasonable so I've been buying shoes and keeping them at my friends house for the past 5 months and she hasn't suspected a thing hahaha
I love shoe so much that I buy them and put them away even if i don't needs it .I will find a reason to justified why I am buying that shoe.
I have been incredibly ill for the past 6 years. Multiple surgeries the whole deal, but no matter what or how I am feeling I cannot ignore the siren call of a gorgeous pair of shoes. Today I bought two new pairs of flats (a style I have refused for years) and they are so comfortable I cannot believe it! My shoe rack isn't big enough to hold all my pumps, wedges, sandals, stilettos and even sexy fetish shoes(a shoe addiction doesn't stop at what you can wear out on the street haha). I even had to buy risers for my bed to fit my boots in their boxes! No matter how sick, no matter how many procedures I have to endure shoes will always cheer me up and make each day that much better!
What can I say I just love to by shoes. I love trying them on and seeing how amazing they look on my feet, I love walking around the store and seeing how comfy they are and how great they makes my legs look. I love to bring the shoes home and putting them away in my special room that is only for shoes and purses. I try to keep purchases quite from my husband so I do not have to hear him say "not another pair of shoes!!" But I love buying them so much. Shoe shopping is just the remedy to a bad day.
I love the gold savy shoes i saw in store and it was super comfy but price was high:(
I swear I've never bought a pair of shoes in my life, they see me and follow me home. I cant help it, I feel obliogated to buy every pair of shoes that I see when I go shopping, out of my 16, 7 are from Town Shoes. & yes I am a guy with with a shoe fettish, whats scary is that I have more shoes than my sister .. and I dont think thats starnge one bit! i've been "grounded" from buying shoes for the last month, but I already have my eyes on another pair! shhhh!
This is rare, but I am a guy with a designer shoe addiction. Nothing gets me mroe excited then a new pair of slip-ons or dress shoes. 7 of my 16 pairs I bought at town shoes an I absolutly love them and you can count on me coming back for more! I actually have 25 pairs shoes but out of them I only wear the 16, so I need more! Ive bought the same pair of slip-ons in 3 different colours because they all were so perfect, I truly have an addiction!
First of all, let me just say thanks to all the staff members at every Town Shoes location who have ever helped me pick out a pair of shoes. I am a shoe-aholic, and yes, I do tend to be a bit picky when it comes to buying a new pair. The main problem is that I love too many of them, and have trouble deciding which ones to get! That is where the staff always save the day! They give me great advice and I always end up leaving the store with one or more gorgeous new sandals, pumps, or even flip flops! Being a shoe-aholic is really a good thing, because I get to enjoy my favourite thing to do: shop for more shoes!
