    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.

    The Girl Who Owned No Shoes

    It was all the boots' fault. Their uncanny resemblance to the pair of lace-up boots I'd wanted when I was fourteen and never had the money to buy, their ability to stay perfectly black and shiny through any amount of abuse, the fact that I could get away with pairing them with a...

    Enough

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

    Maybe One Or Two

    But I own near enough over 100. Why? Because I have a habit that I can't kick. I have cute feet that make all shoes look even more cuter or amazing than they already are. I have perfectly high arched feet made for wearing high heels. Toes that go down in size with painted...

    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.
