Default Lack of shoes

"Men in the UAE spend more on shoes than women." Or so I heard on the radio this morning. I certainly don't. I spend far more on women.

Not being a sandal wearer, I hadn't realised how little they cost.

If men spending more on shoes can be defined as my missus spending my money to buy herself shoes then I spend more on shoes.

Bags are what I don't understand.

Why do they need 35 different bags, each costing more than a laptop...the only people who notice them are other women. Must be a status thing.

35 bags?

You need quality not quantity (or nasty Karama fakes). A couple of good everyday bags (or maybe four), various evening bags, a casual one, a beach bag. Ditto shoes, although I do have rather a lot, it's best to avoid cheap ones. (And for the record I pay for everything myself)

One should always have good shoes and handbags.

Manbags. Only for those who swing the other way, Europeans and Asians?

See! That's how that bloodcurdling sound kicks off in my head.

Do running shoes count? I have four pairs on the good now and they are lined up at the back door. Mrs would rather have some plants but I think the look nice

Default Re: Lack of shoes

Sorry to let the side down, but I have just had a shoe count and totalled 24 pairs. This encompasses trainers, casual, formal. I am sure there are others I have also forgotten about.

And then if you want to get into prescription glasses, I have at least 15 including 3 pairs of prescription sunglasses and 3 pairs of reading glasses. It would have been cheaper to get my eyes lasered.

The only consolation is that I know Mrs Meldrew has more pairs of shoes than me
