I don't fall into that pattern (I hate shoe shopping), but I still have several pairs of shoes (I answered 14). My shoes are divided by coordinating outfit colour (black, brown, red, navy) and dressiness (high heeled or flat), plus shoes for specific activities: trainers for exercise, traction hiking boots, slip on comfortable shoes for urban walking, dancing shoes (suede bottoms / buckled to keep them on).
Call me crazy, but I thought that because the question said "shoes" it meant "shoes" and not hiking boots, mountaineering boots, climbing slippers, and so on. I have one pair of shoes, which I wear because my boss doesn't like sensible footwear.
my are all fairly similar, three pairs black ankle high boots two are elasticated sideedd riding/chelsea boots one lace up ankle high riding boots. I appear to be addicted to rm williams, but I think it is vaguely they last years and take heavy wear - mind you they are very bad to break in and take about a month before you can get them to shine however hard you polish them.

Mind you i can confess to some dodgy choice in the past. Include the ostrich leather cowboy boots...
mmmmm.... red.... high heels.... mmmmmm mmmmmmmm.... mmmmmm.... You must stop distracting me on Friday afternoons.
