”Imelda Marcos” has long since ceased to be merely the name of a former Filipina first lady with a seriously major shoe fetish. By now, it’s also become practically a synonym for anyone with a large shoe collection. There should be an Imelda Society, complete with little nametags shaped like shoes for their meetings. They could offer shoe collection management tips (care, storage, etc.) and support groups for those whose significant others don’t understand their shoe habits.
And every year, the annual meeting could be held at the Marikina Shoe Museum in Manila, Philippines where 800 of Imelda’s shoes are on display. Incidentally, it’s also the place with the most shoes on display in one place of anywhere in the world.
Just look at this shot from inside:
Is this a shoe lover’s paradise or what?
