Following a comment I made which seems to have caused some consternation:

I think I own somewhere in the realm of 25 pairs of shoes/boots. But I was wrong in my poll answer about the ones I wear - I actually wear about 15 of them semi regularly. I like to have a choice. Jo has, as I never tire of pointing out, somewhere in the mid 80s of footwear.

You should have done the poll as "20+", or had more boxes with increments of five.
Alas the limits of livejournal's poll mechanism in combination with my poor memory lead to these limits. I shall endeavour to do better next time.

Tho' I have charity-shopped a few pairs in the last year, and I haven't counted in a while. I think I may even have more boots than shoes...

I do try to wear different pairs regularly, as otherwise I feel that they're 'going to waste'. There are some, however, that are resolutely 'sitting' shoes/boots - ie I can't walk more than about 5 steps in the them but they look fab.

I have no footwear icon...
