Personally, it's 'cause I just like the way my closet looks filled with a million pairs, well that; and I need several pairs for different looks/outfits, I like having options and being able to mix stuff in regards to clothing.
I like fashion & playing with clothes, but shoes are at the bottom of my list in terms of what I find interesting/fun. I have quite a few from stocking them up over the years, but I go weeks with wearing the same few pairs with everything.
My mom says she loves shoes because "they always fit". She's struggled with her weight in later years & so I guess the feet are a part that's non-depressing to dress when you're not in the shape you'd like to be in. Although some people change shoe sizes with weight gain, but it still doesn't have the same effect as trying on bikinis or jeans.

1. I'm an unusal size and can normally find good stuffs in the sale rack.
2. Shoes go on sale more frequently than other items of clothing.
3. I can try them on, right where I stand. No finding a change room, taking my kit off etc.
4. Shoes are pretty, more so than other items of clothing.
I think women have a lot of options with pretty much everything when it comes to fashion. Guy fashion is so boring! It's so limited and monotonous. I try to make my outfits as lively as possible but it's hard!
Agreed. My thoughts would be best expressed by the words of Rodgers and Hammerstein.
"When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl"
Men's fashion has come a long way though, and I know you get creative and rock it out
You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
While I can't really speak much on it as shoe shopping is particularly difficult for me, I imagine it's easier for most women overall. There are only so many shapes and sizes of feet, making a majority of the stock available accessible and available for more women, and it's far safer in terms of asking opinions on how they look, etc. So if you're a pear shaped woman with a pencil friend you can shop in the exact same section together and actually both participate.
