How Much Will You Spend On Shoes In A Lifetime?
How much would you guess that you spend on shoes in a year? What about a lifetime? Here are the cold, hard facts: According to a recent study, women will shell out about $24,000 on shoes during their entire life. While you regain your resting heart rate after that shocker, here’s a little breakdown on just how you’ll dish out that much money on shoes alone. Say each pair of shoes costs $52, and estimate that between sandals for summer, heels for work, boots for winter, and occasional special events such as weddings, you’ll accumulate about seven new pairs a year. Multiple that times 67 years of shoe buying, and there goes those 240 hundred dollar bills. Obviously, this number is dependent on your penchant for cheap versus expensive shoes — and if you’re a Louboutin lover, that number’s bound to be thousands of dollars higher. Given my current shoe rack is overflowing with about 30 pairs of heels, flats, wedges, and sandals (not to mention my boot closet), I think it’s safe to say I’ll hit the estimated number, much to the dismay of my boyfriend who just doesn’t get my addiction.
