I think all I wore last summer were 2 pairs of Teva Mush sandals and a pair of Merrell Barefoot shoes.

Re: S/O How many shoes do you have for spring-summer?

The only shoes I ever really wear in the spring/summer are one pair of black Old Navy flip flops, a silver pair of flip flop type shoes with two fake jewels on the top from Payless (what we wore in my sister's wedding), and my Keen Newport sandals. I have a pair of turquoise corduroy Toms, but I don't have anything that match them so I don't usually wear them.

Re: S/O How many shoes do you have for spring-summer?

I just packed a bunch of my spring/summer shoes away. Here goes:

For wearing out and about:

Jambu water diva sandals (uber casual and some of my friends think they're way ugly)
Caramel leather Hush Puppies wedges
Orange multi-colored wedges (not sure the brand)
Leopard print Lucky brand ballet flats (not packed away, wear year-round)
Orange B.O.C. ballet flats (also not packed away)
Red peep-toe kitten heel Aerosoles
Cream/botanical print canvas Softspots wedges
Black and white pinstripes A2 slingback wedges
Black Naturalizer sling-back/peep-toe "dress" shoes
Grey New Balance tennis shoes (not packed away)
Black Sketchers shape-ups, not packed away but also hardly ever worn

I think that's it for wearing in public. I really want to buy a couple pairs of cute flip flops next spring, but I can never seem to find the "right" pair I also really want a pair of Ugg sandals, if they are comfortable when I try them on in the spring, and some other type of strap sandal. So, no, not enough LOL!

For wearing around the yard -- technically I wear most of them year-round:
3 pairs of flip flops
Orange Crocs (these have a lot of cracks in them and need to be replaced)

ETA -- > I'm generally barefoot at home. Also, I saw a recent report saying that many women are having their toes either shortened or REMOVED so they can fit into CUTE SHOES! I can't believe about mutilation for beauty...!

I have 5 pairs of shoes total. Flip flops, leather boots, tennis type shoes and 2 pairs of dress shoes. I'm more of a barefoot person when I can.

Re: S/O How many shoes do you have for spring-summer?

I have a pair of converse and a pair of flip-flops. I also own a pair of rope sandals for renn fair. I technically have a pair of running shoes but I can't remember the last time I wore them. I pull them out when we are going hiking because I hate running (you may be wondering why I own running shoes, the answer is I don't know). Other than that I have two pairs of brand new converse waiting until the pair I am wearing now wear out. One pair my mom bought me as a gift and the other I purchased on clearance super cheap. Either I will wear them or Kearnan will grow into them and need them.

I should probably buy a pair of dressy looking sandals but we shall see.
Dc snow boots that I don't wear much any more because my husband thinks they're hideous I've had them for 7 years and I still love them!
I have other heels and some wedges that I've had forever that I like never wear.
So happy to hear that someone else has quite a few pairs of Old Navy flip flops! I was reading through this thread thinking, "sheesh! I'm the only one!" I have a rainbow of colors- and light and dark versions if each color! My dh thinks its nuts!

Too many to count.

I think the same way! My shoe size has been the same since I became a teen so I don't mind buying so many of them.
