It is a subject that men will never understand. Your average guy will have a pair of brown, a pair of black, a pair of sneakers and some
comfortable slippers or slip-ons. As for the average woman? Check out this poll from Shop Smart magazine and Kellie Pickler's ode to her favorite footwear.

According to a new poll , women own an average of 17 pairs of shoes (down from 19 four years ago), yet they typically only wear three pairs on a regular basis. Fifty-one percent of women own more than 10 pairs, while 13% have over 30 pairs (not including athletic shoes). The poll also found that women typically purchase three pairs a year, averaging $49 per pair, while 31% have never spent over $100 on a single pair. Other findings:

19% of women have gone shoe shopping to cheer themselves up.

For everyday footwear, women prefer flats. Thirty-nine percent said it is the preferred heel height. Only 8% wear heels over 2 1/2 inches on a regular basis.

60% of women are willing to tolerate the pain of wearing shoes because of the look instead of the feel, while 49% have bought an ugly pair for comfort.
