Zappos: By the numbers

I heard a staggering statistic the other day and decided to do some serious sole searching to get to the bottom of it. Turns out, the statistic was right and here it is:

Zappos, the online shoe purveyor currently has 170,607 different styles available with 3,251,345 total products (including the delicious Giuseppe Zanotti's at right) in stock and ready to ship. That said it also obviously means it currently has 3,251,345 overpriced wares, but that's another conversation. At the moment, let's just bask in the awe of what it must be like to be surrounded by some 100K different shoes.
