Women and shoes

“Why does she have so many shoes?”, “She already has a closet full of shoes, why does she need more?” Have you ever asked yourself these questions before? I have.
My sister-in-law recently enlightened me with the logic behind the love of shoes. It all stems from the feet having some unique qualities: they don’t change much over time and a foot is a foot is a foot.

Unlike other clothing articles a cute shoe warn today will still be cute in the future, the foot doesn’t change enough to make the shoe become uncute. Next, I suspect that to most people one foot isn’t that much different from another foot (who spends much time looking at feet anyway?), thus a cute shoe warn by person A will also be cute when warn by person B.

Mystery solved ;)
