#Like Most Women...Jerry Hall Loves Her Damn Shoes
Designer Shoe Collection Spotlights Manolo Blahniks
What do you collect? Ceramic owls, maybe? Beer cans? Movie memorabilia? Or how about comic books? I bet a lot of you guys collect comics.
Well, Jerry Hall
collects shoes by Spanish designer Manolo Blahniks
The former squeeze of Rolling Stones
frontman Mick Jagger
admits that she has a weakness for the designer footwear, sometimes paying more than $1,800 for a single pair, and that her collection includes more than 300 pairs of Manolos alone, worth over a quarter of a million dollars.
Although the Texas-born model says that she "didn’t buy all of them - some were presents, some were freebies," she does acknowledge buying "most of them."
The 6' tall Hall wears her size 14 Manolos
everywhere, and according to neighbors often sports the fabulous footwear even when gardening.
"They’re the most comfortable shoes to wear no matter what I’m doing," said Hall. "They’re like wearing slippers made of clouds."... (MARTY SHERMAN)
