Now isn’t that the million dollar question of the year, right? Well, maybe it’s not for you, but it likely is something that your husband has asked himself once or twice throughout the years…
In all seriousness, though, with a wardrobe that is constantly expanding from your shoe addiction, have you ever really posed this question to yourself. You might be surprised to learn that there actually are some legitimate reasons that could help explain why you have that insistent need to fill your closet with all things shoe related.
Let’s find out! Here are just some of the reasons that help explain why women love shoes so much:
1) Women love the way shoes make them look

Let’s start off with the most obvious response there is to this question: women love the way shoes make them look. Really, are there any surprises there? Probably not. As any women who love shoes knows, the addition of a great pair of shoes can bring your outfit from average to knockout status in a heartbeat. Shoes bring color, texture, pattern, and luxury to your outfit for an extra added layer of fashion flair. But will one pair of shoes go with every outfit? Undoubtedly, no. And so, we continue to add to our collections so that there is always the perfect pair of shoes to go with any look, any outfit, anytime.
2) Women love the way shoes make them feel

Not only do women love the way shoes make them look, they also love the way that shoes make them feel. Any women who have ever thrown on a pair of heels certainly understands the undeniable feel-good feeling you get from a simple pair of shoes. Heels can make you feel confident, sexy, and on top of the world. There’s a certain power that comes from wearing a pair of heels as well, not only because of the height increase but historically, only women in the aristocracy were able to wear heels, giving heels a sense of exclusivity. Digging even deeper, by wearing a pair of heels, it changes a woman’s posture, and it actually puts her into a primal mating stance. So really, with all the benefits here, is it any wonder that women can never have too many shoes? We’re going to say no.
If you’re just as obsessed with heels as we are, we are absolutely loving the Tanysha heel for something that is not only super versatile and easy to wear, but it’s also beyond comfortable to walk in. And hey, if the weather isn’t cooperating, a heeled boot like the Andra Over The Knee Boot will give you the same feeling as a typical pump but will keep your toes nice and toasty. To be honest, heels never fail in our books.
3) Women love that shoes are 3D objects

This might not be something you’ve thought about before, but have you ever noticed the distinct difference between holding a dress, and holding a great pair of shoes? Minus some embellishments or special detailing that a designer might add to a piece of clothing, for the most part, clothing is a relatively flat object. Shoes, on the other hand, are 3D, giving us a stronger tactile feeling towards them. This might lead some women to have a stronger connection to their shoes, urging them to continuously shop for their next great pair. Don’t get us wrong, though, we love our clothing, but there’s just something about a pair of shoes that seems truly artistic. Who’s with us on this one?
4) Women are able to rationalize shoe purchases

One of the other reasons that help explain why women love shoes so much likely stems from the practicality of shoes. Or, at least, the practicality that we give them. For a lot of women, when they make multiple shoe purchases or spend a lot of money on a pair, they’re able to justify it. They tell themselves they’ll wear that pair of shoes multiple times, with various outfits. Shoes are a fashion accessory that can easily be styled differently and worn multiple times, which is a little more challenging with clothing items. And so, women’s closets tend to lean heavily in the shoe department.
