According to Colorado's Nine News the average women owns 17 pairs of shoes.

I'm sorry, what?

Apparently a survey by Consumer Reports Shop Smart shows the average woman owns 17 pairs of shoes, but only wears three pairs regularly.

The Report says that women have a high threshold for pain where fashion is concerned: three out of five say if the shoes look good then they will cope with the pain. Is that not a given?

Now here's the killer... The poll also says women buy three new pairs of shoes a year, spending an average of $49 on each pair.

Right. Clearly no woman I know has been interview in this study.

Watch the vision here.
