In technical terms someone who has a "fetish" requires the object of their obsession to be involved for their pleasure to even occur. Therefore someone with a true foot fetish would be unable to have sex unless they were stimulated via the foot in some way or form. It is probably safe to say that most people who admire feet are not strictly "hung-up" on that body feature alone and merely find it a source of excitement as opposed to the only excitement. Therefore, in this look at foot fetishes the assumption will be that the term is going to be used lightly and not actually mean "fetish" via the technical definition as found in encyclopedias.
We assume that the proverb that a man is best known by his shoes sits perfect when we look at some of the celebrities known for their shoe fetish. Letâs not delve deeper and try to dig out which part of their quality is worth exhibiting that they wish to show off, but it is definitely their huge collection of shoes that makes our jaws drop down! We are simply amazed at their love for exclusive pair that seems endless and hence the obvious drainage of money on the same also goes on and on. So, let us have a sneak peak into the wardrobes of some of the hot favorite celebrities and unravel their shoe fetish in the process.
1. Paris Hilton
This natural beauty is always the top favorite of the media for being in news. This time it is shoe fetish that makes her click once again. This girl is the owner of 5,000 pricey pair! Looking at the plush lifestyle of this celluloid beauty we can assume the fortune she has spent on her foot gear. But, we have a simple question here. Has she worn all of them or some were only bought to thrive in the shoe rack?
2. Celine Dion
Second on our list of shoe freak celebs is the songstress Celine Dion, with her collection of 3000 shoes and counting. This 43 years old singing sensation honestly confesses that she has a shopping spree and shoes remain at the top of her shopping list. But she couldnât deny either that she also ends up buying pairs in a quiet unplanned manner. This hints that her wallet must always weigh heavy to satisfy her sudden temptations for shoes as Celineâs shoes definitely do not come with cheaper price tags.
3. Cheryl Cole
We are again in a debate if this pear faced tinsel town persona is emotionally attached to her huge collection of shoes or her husband. It is perhaps her love of shoes more than her personal relations, since the doldrums of her personal life never succeeds in casting its impact on her evergreen love for shoes. Thus, while it will always be difficult to see Cheryl Cole in a happy family picture frame for long, you will never be disheartened when you peep inside every corner of her home, from cupboards to kitchen drawers, to find thousands of fancy footwear! She goes on record saying she owns 2000 pairs at present.
4. Mariah Carey
The singing sensation of Hollywood has as many music albums in her home as the number of shoes. We are sure she might earn a great fortune if she plans to auction a few of the footwear. Alternatively, it also gives us the hint that she did not bother much in spending a considerable slice of her bank balance in buying them too. There are hundreds and thousands of shoes in her collection. But we bet you will never find a pair similar to the other in style and design!
5. Imelda Marcos
Although Imelds Marcos is not a celluloid personality, she can give any celebs sleepless nights if she opens up her collection of shoes! She is none other than the wife of the late Philippine president Ferdinant Marcos. Thus, when cash flow is not an issue we do not think there is really any hurdle for her to pursue her fetish and make the Hollywood shoe freak celebrities drool. Now, for your information, be alert as there is a disease in Philippines called âImelda Marcos Syndromeâ, which can make you an obsessed shoe buyer!
Fregie is a must mention celebrity who keeps on renovating her residence quite too often to accommodate her growing number of shoes! We must admit that she is too passionate and soft hearted towards her footwear, as she feels her heart aching when she plans to throw away an old pair! You will surely find lots and lots of closets in her home above every other furniture as this is her own way to make justice with her âtreasured passionâ. Her shoe fetish has also made her launch a collection of her own, called ‘Fregie’. We only hope that she remains as committed to her husband too and makes a happy family.
7. Megan Fox
Megan looks helpless wherever she is inquired about her shoe fetish. Actually, she never knew that her obsession will keep on eating away the walkable space in her mega mansion! But, it seems utterly challenging, rather impossible for Megan to get over her uncontrollable love for shoes. She admits that she is inclined towards branded shoes as well and her collection includes Jimmy Choo, Cavalli and Casadei. We can assume that Meganâs shoe fetish certainly makes her room absolutely disorganized.
8. Keira Knightley
For Keira, shoes appear like a viral menace. She admits that she finds it simply impossible to resist her temptation whenever she walks past a shoe shop. Her take on this is that there are pairs in her collection that do not fit her at all! Do not think that she brought them unintentionally to discover they were not meant for her feet. Actually, it is the aesthetic appeal of the footwear that steals her heart. Consequently, the resultant is an impulsive buying and a misfit pair in the process. We feel pity for the drainage of wealth of this shoe maniac celebrity!
9. Lindsay Lohan
This freckle faced celluloid personality, who once ruled the silver screen as a teen prodigy, perhaps is on a separate track to retain her stardom. So, shoe fetish is one of her passionate addictions that has made her cupboard a worthy treasure, teaming with more than 5000 pairs!
10. Suri, the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Although Suri is yet very small to be a prominent Hollywood celebrity, the sparks of a celluloid diva is evident in her. If you wish to get glimpses of this flicker, peep into her shoe rack and we are sure you will be flowed on his collection of shoes. The total sum that the celebrity couple has spent so far on their little angelâs footwear collection is streaming $150,000! It includes some designer and branded shoes along with some made exclusively for Suri. We admit that shoe fetish do not come with age!
