Currently, I own five pairs of shoes with four pairs costing under $30 each minus tax. The only pair of shoes I own that are over $30 are these nice black winter boots I had purchased a few years ago. They were $44.99 and they still feel and look great on my feet. My shoe budget is $30 or less for each pair I buy. Obviously, everyone is different and can purchase what they please. I just can't picture myself spending over $30 for one pair of shoes. Does anyone feel the same way? What's the most amount you would spend on one pair of shoes? What's the least amount you would spend on one pair of shoes? I should note that I brought most of my shoes from Payless.
