Pfft! Disagree! I like to walk around in the same sneakers all the time and it drives my mom and other people crazy. ...But I can't help it, they're so comfortable, I don't want another! :D

You're my twin then! I have two pairs of sneakers: very light ones for the summer, and the other pair for all seasons. My mom's attempts to make a lady out of me through any other footwear thus far miserably failed :D :D :D

"Less shoes" is grammatically incorrect. You should say "fewer shoes." You could however say "less footwear."

Why "I don't want a lot of shoes" is wrong?

A more natural English sentence would be "I don't want that many shoes".

"I do not want as many shoes" is surely an acceptable translation but marked wrong!

Here we would say, I don't want a whole lot of shoes. But we say that We don't need a lot of shoes.

Why is "...too many shoes..." incorrect? In English (American, anyway) it is much more natural.

Why "I don't want such shoes" is wrong? Duolingo offers 'such' as one of the translations for 'tanto'.
