A girl can never have enough shoes. Are we right, ladies?

It’s common knowledge, really, that we women may have a slight obsession with footwear, some more than others perhaps.



Take Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw – now she had an obvious shoe fetish. Just thinking about the elaborate walk-in closet Big surprised her with to display each and every pair of her fancy shoes makes us tingle. Okay, the first step is admitting it – we’re pretty crazy about how we dress our feet. The second step is staying up to date on all of the latest and greatest trends.
