MSN Life & Style 'Shoebox'
A recent MSN survey looked at shoe wearing habits of women. Just over 1500 women were surveyed and almost half feel more attractive in higher heels. Many described their heels as making them feel sexy and confident. Eightysix percent (86 per cent) said they had suffered an injury because of their favourite footwear. More than half (52 per cent) of those said they would happily brave the pain as long as they look good in their shoes. Twenty seven percent (27 per cent) of the pool owned upwards of 50 pairs. Just under half of respondents admitted to buying at least one pair every month, and 15 per cent bought a pair of new shoes every fortnight. 40% of the survey had at least five pairs of shoes they had worn more than once. Fifty seven percent (57 per cent) said they thought little of spending more than £100 on a pair. In the UK woman are prepared to pay up to £142.59 (216.985 AUD) on the right shoes. The survey was carried out to launch MSN Life & Style 'Shoebox' where shoe addicts can share pictures of their favourite footwear. Shoe fashionista can upload a picture of your favourite pair of shoes with a sentence or two describing when you bought them, where they are from, why they are your favourite pair and anything else you'd like to share and by uploading your shoes you even get entered into a competition to win a HTC Windows phone.
