    I Have No Shoes At All

    I never understood how people can have so many pairs of shoes. I have one pair of dress shoes for church, work, and formal things, and sneakers for everything else. I hear some people say "I have to have shoes that go with this outfit" but I have to wonder why not just...

    A Cliche

    It's definitely a cliche that all women are shoe-crazy. I never saw the big deal.
