Collecting Shoes


I was wondering to myself; "Who has the largest shoe collection in the world?" I did a little research. Guinness Book of World Records says it is Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippians. Her collection is said to be near 2,700. 

Did you know that the worlds largest collection of giant shoes is here in America? And all it costs to view is four quarters?

Holding the record title for largest collection of Converse is Joshaua Mueller.  He has 560 pairs. 

Darlene Flynn is recognized as a Guinness winner for having the largest collection of shoe memorabilia and paraphernalia. Her collection began with shoe figurines. 

The Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Canada boasts the largest gallery collection of shoes. Displaying over 12,500 shoes, this amassment spans time. From artifacts of early civilizations to current catwalk trends, it's a gathering of shoes through the ages. Plus there is a nice selection of shoes of the famous. Including Elizabeth Taylor, Winston Churchill, Napoleon, John Lennon and Marylin Monroe...just to name a few. 

Man, it must be nice to be famous. Think of all the shoes that fame and fortune could buy. Ever wonder what the inside of a celebirty's shoe closet looks like? Follow these links below to find out! See the shoe closets of Khloe Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Tamara Mellon, Miley Cyrus, stylest Rachel Zoe or Black Eye'd Pea Fergie. How about the sneaker collections of LeBron James or Jermaine Dupri? What about Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Mariah Carey, or Paula Abdul? All shoe addicts.

And last but not least a glimpse into the Vogue shoe closet. A clip from "God Save My Shoes."
