    I Don't Need Them..

    But I have them. Shoes aren't really important to me but have a large number of them anyway. It's not because I am obsessed (far from it) I just like to have options.

    Nah

    I did have two main pairs of shoes, my Crocs and a pair of sandals.  I recently added a pair of Birkenstock clogs.Though I have a couple more pairs, those three make up my entire collection of shoes that I wear.Other shoes may be pretty, but I don't need them.

    Enough

    No, I don't need a lot of shoes. One pair for every day is largely enough.
