UK women have more shoes unworn that worn
According to recent research by Co-operative Insurance, the average female in the UK owns 20 pairs of shoes. Eleven (11) of those pairs estimated at about 400 pounds will remain unworn in the wardrobe waiting the right occasion that never comes. Despite leaving more than half of their footwear to gather dust, most women will continue to fuel their shoe addiction, splashing out on an additional eight new pairs a year. Nearly a third of the 3,000 woman surveyed admitted buying shoes that were the wrong size, but the shoes had appeal anyway. According to the study, the average spend on a pair of shoes was 36 pounds, and at eight pairs a year that would total 288 pounds.
