Consideration and purchase of shoes: an activity that seems to be favorite of most women.
Even if they already have many, many shoes they are unlikely to give up yet another new pair.
The shoes are a symbol of all women. From high heels through equal ballerinas to boots and
summer sandals, obviously, there will always be an empty room for one more pair that is winking
from the window of a store. Well, apparently the shoes are one of the “weaknesses” of women.
From the responses of 3,000 women interviewed in the UK, has been found that on average,
every woman owns 20 pairs of shoes. Of these, the majority an average of 11 pairs have been
worn only once and probably will never be shod again. It is estimated that the monetary value of
these abandoned shoes is about € 450 per woman. However, when asked whether they would
buy moreshoes next year, the majority of respondents answered that they would buy again.
10% of the participants in the survey also revealed that they will increase their spending up to
650 euros to calm this genuine addiction to shoes.
But to our surprise, the study does not end there, in fact, almost a third of the respondents
openly admit that they spent their money on at least one purchase that looked good in the store ,
but it has proved to be a loss because after that they did not like the shoe.
Whats the most annoyed thing is that most of women can not find the suitable size (UK2
-UK13/EU35-EU46)shoes in the store,so they search for it in online shop,but many shoes
not fit well ,too tight or too loose.customize is a trend for more and more women in nowdays.
The surveyed women said that they keep their shoes on average for three years before
they are discarded.
However, many of them admit that it is difficult to get rid of those shoes that
have been their favorites: 21% say they keep these shoes, even if they do not wear them.
The shoes are placed in closets or wardrobes in 55% of the respondents,
Furthermore, one in five women admitted that she leaves the shoes somewhere else:
scattered in the living room or anywhere else in the house or even in the car.
But what is it that provokes women to buy new shoes? 37% of the women buy
a new pair of shoes just because it makes them feel better. 52% because they need
them for a combination with a new dress, 18% to be modern,and 10% because
they can not get away without a purchase。
