A PASSION for shoes has led Gladstone’s Colleen Trevor to spend every day surrounded by shoes.
Ms Trevor is in the process of setting up shop, filled with shoes with glamour and sparkle.
But she’s only one of many Gladstone women who would cry and scream bloody murder if anyone tried to take away their shoe collections.
Even Gladstone’s acting mayor, Gail Sellers, admits her love for shoes had lead to a collection of 80, while The Observer’s editor Meredith Papavasiliou won’t disclose the number of shoes she owns, but it is believed to be more than 100.
Shelley Old said last time she went to a sale, she purchased five pairs of shoes in five minutes.
“I buy a lot of shoes half price because if they don’t fit, it doesn’t matter,” she said.
“You can put in inner soles or stretch them.
“Shoe euphoria is the best feeling. It’s better than drugs.”
“Whether you are fat or thin, you can always fit into a pair of shoes,” Michelle Howkin said.
