It seems ladies know how to put their foot down,for a new survey has revealed that the average woman will spend more than 16,000 pounds on her shoes in her lifetime.
Girls buy their first pair without mum at 14,then seven pairs a year for the rest of their lives,amounting to 469 pairs,according to the survey.
Spending 34.99 pounds on an average pair means women fork out 244.93 pounds each year and 16,410 pounds over a period of 67 years,the ‘Daily Express’ reported.
The survey of 3,000 women,by ‘Gocompare.com’,has shown that the average woman has about 19 pairs of shoes — three pairs with heels,six pairs of flip-flops,sandals,ballet pumps or wedges,three pairs of boots and four pairs of “foxy style” shoes for nights out.
They also have two pairs of work shoes and another two or so “random” purchases.
Four in 10 women say they judge another female by the shoes she has on. More than half find it easy to justify a purchase to themselves but a quarter rarely tell their partner about new ones as “he wouldn’t understand”.
Hayley Parsons,of Gocompare,said: “Shoes are women’s one major weakness.”
