A Shoe For Every Millipede Leg

Here is some one who has (of all the fetishes) a shoe fetish.

10,000 pairs of foot wear. Assuming that a pair may occupy one square foot of space, it takes 10,000 sq. feet of space to store them if placed side by side. The average apartment size in Mumbai is around 700 sq. feet or so? Your friendly neighbourhood bata store may not have so many pairs.

One other person who had such a fetish (she had others too) was Imelda Marcos wife of deposed Philippines president Ferdinand Marcos.

After the Marcos family fled Malacanang Palace , Mrs. Imelda Marcos was found to have left behind 15 mink coats, 508 gowns, 888 handbags and 1060 pairs of shoes.

There was a huge furore then over the number of slippers. But it pales in comparison to this 10,000 pairs.
