More shoes than Imelda Marcos!

so, having just returned off my Holiday and having acquired a few new items of clothing and the changing of the seasons, I was forced to rearrange my wardrobes... yep thats right, i said WARDROBES.
I have four full wardrobes at the moment, but, thats not the point.
the point is, I noticed just how many shoes I have.
now, its often said a man need 3 pairs of shoes:
1 pair of brown (tan brogues are good for this role)
1 pair of black (perhaps some black wingtips)
1 pair of trainers (for sporting activities)

this should be enough to fulfill all male footwear needs, or so the theory goes.

anyway, during my clothing shuffle, winter stuff up to the top wardrobes and summer stuff down to the main ones, i noticed that the bottom of the cupboards all appeared full of shoes!?!?

"i'll give them a little count" i said to myself (out loud for anyone interested, i like to talk to myself)
Imagine my horror when i discovered, not three, or six... not even ten pairs, nope,
i have 17 pairs of fucking shoes!
to make matters worse, im going shoe shoppoing at the weekend!
17 pairs of shoes?
they break down like this:
4 black
5 brown
2 pairs of converse
3 pairs of nikes
1 pair of white shoes (dont ask, i live in Greece and its acceptable here)
and finally a pair of beige and brown Diesels.

see, thats just not enough, but it seems like so many!

so, men, how many pairs have you got? are you a shoe buyer like me or a typical man with less than 5?
women, please, please reassure me that you all have many many more pairs than me!

Keep up the good work
You are young and if you try harder you will definately do better than that.

When you cannot walk inside the house or buy a purpose built cabinet for your shoes you will know that it's the time to slow down.
