Australian women and shoes : New Survey
A new Australian study has shown on average Australian women only buy four pairs of shoes a year. This is less than UK women who purchase eight pairs a year, but more than New Zealand and US women, who buy 3.8 and three pairs respectively. Australian women prefer quality, spending an average of $70 per pair, whereas UK women are big on quantity, spending only $53 on average for a pair of heels. In Australia and New Zealand, the total amount spent on shoes every year falls with age; 25 to 34-year-olds spend about $333, 35 to 59-year-olds spend $312 annually, while those over 60 spend $205 every year. The research also revealed that 67 per cent of respondents buy shoes on sale, 12 per cent spend an average of more than $200 on a pair of shoes, while 76 per cent spend $100 or less.
