But just how many pairs of shoes are lying unworn in the bottom of your wardrobe? One, two?
Think again - it's probably more like five!
According to research carried out by footcare brand Compeed, the average British woman owns 25 pairs – but doesn't wear a fifth of them, because they are "too uncomfortable".
So the typical lady will have five pairs of still-new shoes sitting in her wardrobe - worth an incredible £190!
That means there's a whopping £3.3 billion worth of forgotten footwear in homes up and down the country. It almost seems like a crime!
Despite this, we still spend a chunk of cash on shoes each year. Girls treat their selves to 17 new pairs annually and spend an average of £608. Ouch!
Shoe-lovers also admitted that they often endure blisters with their choice of footwear, while a whopping 93 per cent admit wearing high heels is painful.
Speaking about the finding, psychologist Emma Kenny told the Daily Mail: "Women buy high heels because they make them feel confident and sexy.
"Confidence makes us feel happy, full of direction and in control of our lives; so I makes sense that we invest in things which aid this feeling."
