I thought I'd respond here because I couldn't pick one from the first question! ;) I have "nice" boots and heels that I wear fairly often, but just as often I wear tennis shoes and hiking boots. In the summer, I often wear flip flops and sandals. It just depends on the weather and where I'm going. :) And I'd select the 4-8 pairs of shoes.

I picked the flip-flops, though for work I can't wear those. I wear very plain flats to work.

Of course, I own more than 8 pairs of shoes, most of which are fancy heels... I just don't really wear them anymore!

I wear heels to work on week days, otherwise it's a mixature of sandals or my sneakers, depending on the weather.

Because I live in South Carolina, I wear flip flops most of the year. When I'm not wearing my flops, I'm either in converse low tops, or my Toms.

:D I have a 6-year-old pair of work boots and a 2-year-old pair of round-toed pumps. Used to have a really sweet pair of flipflops, but they died. So. If I'm leaving the house and must have my soles covered, those are my options.

I didn't count my shoes. I might have more than 8 pairs. I have 3 pairs of chunky shoes I rotate for daily use, boots for occasional use, and sandals for rarely (can't wear them to work, and work is most of what I do in the summer).

Ppph! I answered wrong: I should have answered "walking shoes" and I answered "cutesy flats".

I'm in transition from sneakers to walking shoes; my style is changing to something more business casual than fully casual. I think that's why I chose the way I did.

In fairness, I wear all of the above. In summer, it'll be sandals, in fall and spring it'll be hiking boots/tennis shoes, and winter it'll be boots. Soooooo...I messed up your survey a bit.

Oh this reminds me of how much I wish I could go barefoot right now...

I have one pair of sneakers, one pair of orthopedic shoes that my physical therapist made me get, and one pair of dress shoes for interviews or fancier occasions...

I wish public places were more barefoot friendly!

It´s kind of taken me a long time to come to terms with the fact that I am NOT that girl teetering around town in high heels. I am WAAAYY to clumsy for that. I thought I had found the perfect compromise in platforms until I sprained my ankle while walking my dogs. So in summer flip flops and in winter boots, although if I am actually hiking or riding a bike then clearly activity appropriate footwear.

I´m vegan too, though so that adds an extra element of fun in trying to find non leather preferably ethically made footwear that is still relatively cute or at least to my taste and not ridiculously expensive. *eyerolls just thinking about shoes for upcoming wedding I am attending*

I wear men's dress shoes, pretty much everywhere.

( <3. Just for the record. :D Mine are men's workboots.)

I have...um, lots of shoes. I'm a shoe-sale hound, and people always give me shoes as gifts because they know I love them.

I wish the first one had tick boxes, though. It used to be 90% fancy heels and sexy boots, but the number shifts more towards the funky boots (colorful, or combat boots with crazy laces) and sneaker-type shoes if I'm out alone with Suzu, just because it's easier to chase a toddler when you're not in stillettos.

I've got a few... Flat flip-flops, a pair of heels that I never wear, big clunky strappy leather boots, 2 pairs of sneakers, and a pair of combat boots that belonged to my dad.

Only reason I have so many, is I tend to lose track of one pair and always grab for whatever I can find. And I can't bring myself to get rid of one pair of sneakers or the combat boots, and the last gift he'd bought me or the only thing I inherited that were his.

I think at the moment... I have a pair of silvery flip flops all covered in the red red red African sand, a pair of sneakers and two pairs of boots. I walked around in my sneakers all winter because I absolutely just refuse to spend any more money than I absolutely have to on such a fucking horrible season ;) I rather freeze, ya know ;)

I swing between option one and three - I wear ballet flats or sexy boots for work and for weekends, I wear flip flops, ballet flats or walking shoes, depending on destination and weather.

About 90% of the time, I'm wearing mule-style tennis shoes (low-backed, slip-on shoes). Very comfy. About 10% of the time I wear sandals or kitten-heeled shoes. I definitely have more than 8 pair of shoes; I know this because I have 3 pair of the mule-style tennis shoes alone, LOL (white & pink, white & teal, and white & blue)!

I'm very practical when it comes to boots & shoes. My feet are killing me in high heels and I like to have a good touch with the earth as well. I like all kinds of pretty shoes but if they aren't comfortable (and for me most of the time they aren't) I can't really wear them. I believe a good confidence is important and I feel more confident about myself when I have a light & carefree step and my feet don't hurt.

In the summer I usually wear china ("baby doll") shoes.. the simple velvet shoes that are super comfortable. I also love to be barefeet but I don't take my shoes off in the city because it's so dirty out there.

because i'm a)Lazy, b)cheap, c)Vegan, d)Stupidly large footed. I have all but one pair of footware. I have been known to wander to the shops in my bare feet though. My soles are like leather.

I chose sandals/flip-flops because that is my footwear of choice but during the winter months, it is primarily sneakers. (Actually if I'm going to a friends or convenience store, sometimes it's slippers!) For years I pretty much kept a pair of sneakers and a pair of dress shoes and that's it, but over the past few years I've come to have an affinity for cute sandals and sexy shoes which aren't really my every day wear. =)

Are you just curious?

For me I gotta say that for my job I pretty much can't wear sneakers or flip flops. I would absolutely wear rocketdog or chuck taylors or flip flops with sequins every day of my life if I could. Or Timberland boots when it's snowy.

BUT, becuase I wear heels, sexy boots, or pretty flats to work, I end up wearing them on saturdays & sundays too.

And yourself? :-)

I own way more than 8 but only regularly wear 3 or 4. I seriously need to start selling on ebay or something.

I wear pretty but comfortable boots on a daily basis: quite delicate boots with a bit of a heel. I haven't worn runners/running shoes in years, and now find them far too low and difficult to walk in. Number? Well, I usually wear shoes to death: from purchase to becoming unwalkable. I'm starting to give up on my current pair of knee boots and have switched back to some battered ankle boots, which feel like socks now -- strange and comfortable! I must get new shoes, but I dislike shoe shopping -- it's so hard to find comfortable and good-looking shoes, and those that are both often change to neither after a few weeks.
