How much do women spend on shoes in a lifetime?
Shoes can be an expensive habit - particularly if you're partial to designer styles and like to let your feet follow all the trends. Today, the amount of money that most UK women spend on footwear in a lifetime has been revealed by a new study - and it's as eye-watering as a pair of too-tight stilettos.
So how much do you think you're like to spend on shoes throughout your life? Read on for the latest figure (and remember this is an average woman they're talking about - not the type of person who splurges as much as some of us do)...
That amount, according to a survey conducted by Promotionalcodes.org.uk, is £34,000. That sounds like an awful lot of heels and trainers, but the same study concluded that this amounts to around 13 pairs of shoes per year (which I have to admit does not sound like that much. Hmm!) or an average annual spend of around £570.
2 pairs of boots, costing £80 each= £160
3 pairs of flats, £20 each = £60
3 pairs of heels, £45 each = £135
2 pairs of sandals, £50 each= £100
1 Flip flop= £10
Gym trainers= £60
