People often joke about their shoes obsession and make light of something that can actually turn into a major problem. Every day people spend money on things, especially shoes, they cannot afford. On the other hand, there are plenty of people that can afford to invest in quality shoes like those from Fly London or Thierry Rabotin and their wardrobe would be in complete without great footwear. Is there really a shoe obsession and is it something we need to worry about?
The answer is: it depends. In some cases, buying shoes is a problem. You probably know someone like this or you are this person. You have hundreds of pairs of shoes, but you just can never resist adding one more pair to your collection. When the latest Thierry Rabotin or Fly London shoes come out, you are the first person in line to make a purchase. No matter whether you need a particular pair of shoes or not, it is the collecting that has you involved in the shoe buying mania.
In some cases, there is nothing wrong with wanting the latest and great pair of shoes. Many people who have a passion for something invest money in the newest equipment or developments. In your case, shoe buying and collecting is more a hobby than a fashion necessity and as long as you can afford to invest in your hobby, you do not have a problem.
However, if you have gone overboard and you are sacrificing needed things for shoes, you might want to re-evaluate your situation. How do you know your shoe shopping obsession has gone too far? Ask yourself these questions:
- Have you ever skipped paying a bill that was due because you needed the money for a new pair of shoes?
- Do you have enough space to store your shoe collection (safely) or are shoes spilling out of every nook and cranny of your home?
- Does your family complain about you buying too many pairs of shoes?
- Have you ever regretted a shoe purchase?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might want to reflect a bit on your shoe shopping habit. You might be fine, but you might not be. If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, it is time for a shoe obsession intervention. You might love to buy shoes, but shoes have taken over your life and it is time to get things under control!
