Why are so many women addicted to shoes? The explanations range from the practical to the therapeutic. On the practical side, we know no outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes. So, for every look we go out in, of course we need a unique pair of shoes to top it off! Shoes also last longer than clothes--because unlike our dress size, our shoe size doesn’t change—so, we can always wear our favorites, regardless of whether or not our favorite pair of jeans fit that day.
But, there’s also something more about shoes—when you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up, a great new pair of shoes often works wonders.
Sometimes we even dare to sacrifice comfort for fashion. Those fashionable shoes may not be easy to walk but that doesn’t matter. They are adorable and that’s what really counts.
One of the famous shoe addicts is Mariah Carey. Just take a look for yourself inside of her shoe closet. The diva admits that she owns over 1,000 pairs of shoes and she can't even store all of them in the closet at her Manhattan home. She has to keep some in storage.
