Women and Shoes

Somewhere in the annals of this blog there is a post about women and shoes, if you want you can look for it.

In the meantime I’d like to state for the record that I don’t understand the fascination or desire of so many women to try and become Imelda Marcos.

The world would be a better place if you all limited yourself to a total of four pairs of shoes. Just think of all of the animals that you could save if you didn’t buy yourself one more unnecessary pair of boots/pumps/sandals.

    That one was sticking your head too far out, really, but I always enjoy a god kamikaze stunt. Good luck.

    Just don’t get close, I shall have to clean up all that gore from my new shoes, and I do not have many.

    I suppose that is one way to rationalize it. 😉


    You are welcome to do so, I encourage it. Of course my tool set helps to fix and maintain multiple items. They don’t get worn out and no one ever worries about whether they match the rest of the toolset.


    Well done.


    We understand. Instead of spending $2,987,932 on shoes you could apply that money to so many more useful items. 🙂

    must, you’re so sensible!!!

    yes but don’t you realize that different things match different outfits and different seasons? you can’t wear boots in the summer nor can you wear brown shoes with an all black outfit, you need black shoes for that. gosh, can’t men understand anything? 🙂

    There’s one main difference between a man’s tools and a woman’s shoes.

    You see, I have a collection of like 25 screwdrivers. But when I need one, I walk right up to my workbench, grab it, and move it. I don’t stand in front of a mirror with two screwdrivers in each hand and yell “honey! which screwdriver goes best with this screw?”

    BTW, just for the record, I’m all for women getting as many pairs of shoes as they want. Nothing’s better on a woman than a nice pair of shoes.

    Maybe I should start a post about men and all their gadgets.

    Or tools. Like those ratchet sets. Who needs so many ratchets, honestly?

    Plus they all come in the same color – it’s madness… what’s the point?

    Hey Jack, I’m just trying to elevate gashmius!
    I imagine the animals sacrificied on the altar of my vanity will achieve a higher consciencness for allowing a fabulous G-d fearing Jewess to trample about in their carcasses.

    Let me go through your closet. Your husband will thank me.

    Jack would one of the pairs of boots include thigh high’s? What’s a chick without her honey’s fantasy boots?

    Oh wait. Boots too?

  12. Mirty April 7, 2006 at 2:19 am

    I actually sent most of my shoes to Goodwill a few months back. I now have ONLY

    2 pairs of black pumps
    1 pair of white pumps
    1 pair of beige pumps
    1 pair of brown pumps
    1 pair red sexy strappy sandals
    1 pair black sexy strappy sandals
    1 pair everyday beige sandals
    1 pair everyday red sandals
    1 pair sneakers
    1 pair fuzzy slippers
    1 pair flip flops (zoris)
    1 pair brown moccasins
    1 pair brown hush puppies
    1 pair red mocs
    1 pair pink mock-alligator mocs

    That’s all!

    Jack, dear. There simply is no such thing as an “unnecessary pair of boots/pumps/sandals.” Boys. They’re just dumb, aren’t they?

    Ikea offers a complete selection.


    NJD’s closet is in big trouble, isn’t it. 😉
