Why do women own so many pairs of shoes?

This, of course, is one of the age-old questions many men find wandering through their heads. And as a member of the male gender myself, I won’t lie, I’ve let the same question do some wanderin’ in my own noggin — don’t get me wrong, I love my shoes (obviously), but even I try to draw the line somewhere.
