There is one thing we can agree on when it comes to what women want….

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes.

What they want less is still a subject of research. That is why we have taken some time to consult and find out from some fab fans on the shoesiLIKE facebook page. Actually ladies love shoes more than most items you may think of.

We got about 90 random responses to an open question asked on our facebook page   The question was ‘I love shoes more than I love ____________

Here is the top 5 items that ladies love less than shoes, tarting with an item with the highest number of mentions.

1. Food

When it comes to shoes, food doesn’t matter. Some indicated they can starve for shoes or would forego their favourite ice-cream faced with the hard choice of Food Vs Shoes

2. Man/ Boyfriend/ Husband

Boyfriends , Husbands and Men actually come after shoes when we talk of priorities. What happened to the term ‘My better half”. Poor men.

3. Clothes 

Yeah clothes don’t matter in the shoes-equation., Most would rather have more shoes than clothes. Included in clothes are also handbags and jewellery. As a complimentary item to shoes, isn’t it surprising clothes and adorable sisters (bags, accessories etc) all combined are not higher on the priority list.

4. The World

Love shoes more than anything in the world. (my interpretation)

5. At number 5 there is a tie on chocolates and sex- which may prove it true that they got the same effect on women. .. (top discovery)

5. a) Choclolates

Chocolates Vs Shoes , shoes win – a no brainer having seen the position taken by other life essentials like food, clothes and men. 

5 b) Sex

Whoever invented the term shoe-gasm knew what they were talking about. Shoes can replace anything.

Other Comparisons.

Here are the other items which did not make it to the top 5 mentions in no particular order:

  • my feet or my legs
  • my job / school
  • my country
  • money
  • my phone
  • clubbing
  • friends

In conclusion, these items are by no means at the bottom of women’s favourite things. The fact that they got mentioned shows how highly they compete with shoes……SHOES are still a girl’s best friend.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, only child to the legendary late Whitney Houston and singer/actress Jeniffer Hudson arrive at the 2011 pre Grammy Gala. Both wearing black shoes, though different styles.

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s s gladiator style shoes just look fabulous and  paired with a sexy little black dress. Jeniffer Hudson’s open toe black pumps are equally tantalising. Moreso with the elagant trim new look.

The both look fabulous.

The web went wild with Angelina’s leg when she appeared at the 2012 Oscars with a sky high slit that revealed her very long legs.
