shoeauditI own 65 pairs of shoes.

I’m not really sure why I have this many shoes. I never wear most of them. All those pointy-toed gems are relics from my brief stint on Wall St. while I was in grad school. They’re not especially practical for work in an elementary school, and they’ve been largely retired to a hanging shoe caddy that I never see behind the closet door. I have a few pairs of heels, but as someone who has sprained the same ankle 6 times over the years (once from literally just walking across a floor), heels and I don’t mix so well. I have a ridiculous number of ballet flats: 20 pairs. Ten of those are from Target for around $12, and I’ve really considered hot-gluing the broken soles back together just to keep them in the collection. And some of them I’ve never, ever worn. I also have 6 pairs of Keds, but I only actually live in 2 of those pairs.
