According to a new study in ShopSmart magazine, 14% of women hide their shoe purchases from their significant others. Other fun stats: "Over half of women own more than 10 pairs, and 13 percent have more than 30 pairs. That’s not including athletic shoes." and "Women typically buy three pairs a year, and on average spend $49 per pair, but, nearly one-third have spent more than $100 on a single pair." [CBB]
