De Feet



Shoes – objects of adoration and much satisfaction for so many women, with colours and styles for all occasions. Regardless of the bunions, posture problems and general aches and pains, the higher the heel the better.

Sometimes the collection grows so much that storage can become an issue. As a result there has been a boom in recent times of shoe racks and storage systems.

Does your husband know how many pairs you actually own or is it a retail therapy secret?

Would you consider putting distance between you and your collection by storing them in a house in a foreign country where you neither lived nor had any intention to reside permanently?

I ask only because last week newspapers carried reports of a court case in which the chairman of Laura Ashley tried to prevent his wife succeeding with her assertion that her divorce case should be heard in England. He argued that she does not intend to dwell here. His wife, however, was able to adduce evidence, including of a thousand pairs of shoes (admittedly the Judge thought she was exaggerating), as a demonstration of her intention to remain in this country.

Although the husband clearly believed the wife’s argument was cobblers, the Court found in her favour.

Shoes are not just for looks anymore apparently. That's a great story.
