5 Celebrities Who Are Obsessed With Shoes

Posted by PZ on August 16th, 2012

Louboutins? Yes please! These 5 shoe fanatics are completely obsessed with collecting heels. They can’t past a shoe store without going all Carrie Bradshaw, wandering in and trying on the latest Jimmy Choos – they’ve got to have it. Some have absolutely massive shoe collections, while some simply crave the feeling of power they get when they’ve got a pair of towering stilettos on their feet, which they find helpful when they’re hitting the stage to sing a power ballad or strutting the red carpet – it gives them an extra confidence boost.


Alexandra Burke

Alexandra loves heels because they help her transform into a diva on stage: ”I’ve been training in heels since the age of 14 as my sister once said to me, ‘If you really want to be a super star like Beyonce, then you’re going to have to be able to dance in heels. When I put heels on and I go on stage it completely changes everything about me and I turn into that…that beast, and it really is because of a heel. I won’t go on stage without a heel on.”

Lauren Conrad

Lauren says she’d save her shoes from a burning building and has a large collection of her favourites: “I’ve I had to save something from a burning building, I’d grab an armful of Louboutins! I just cleaned out my closet and got rid of half my shoes. I have 60 pairs now and 15-20 of them are Louboutins. Christian Louboutin can do no wrong in my eyes. My favourites are my black suede platform pumps.”

Kristin Cavallari

Kristin collects different styles of shoes and can always work them into a look: “No matter the type of shoe, I can find an outfit to pair it with and honestly can’t think of a type of shoe I wouldn’t want to add to my closet. I don’t consider myself to be an expert but I’m obsessed with shoes and think they complete every outfit. Having designed a shoe, I now know what makes a shoe great. There are a lot more little details that go into making shoes than you’d think. I think the higher the heel the better. Platforms are the best, but I’ve actually just recently started to also love ballet flats.”

Daisy Lowe

Daisy has fond memories of loving shoes even from a young age, and is currently obsessed with Louboutins: “My earliest fashion memory is getting my first pair of heels when I was seven years old. I was obsessed with these silver high heels from Marks & Spencer and I begged for them. My grandma recently fished out a picture of me wearing them – they’re so awful but very sweet. My boyfriend bought me a really amazing pair of Christian Louboutin shoes for Christmas. I haven’t worn them out of the house yet. They’re really high, red and white gingham and they’re just so pretty.”

Celine Dion

Celine reveals that her addiction is collection shoes and she has accumulated a very large collection: “If you have, let’s say, 600 pairs of shoes, you’re considered a freak? I have about 3,000 pairs. Look, some people do drugs, and I buy shoes.”
