Stilettos, slingbacks, wedges, sandals, loafers and brogues may sound like jargon to most men but to women it is the sweet sound of beautiful shoes. There is no denying it, women love shoes, in every design and every colour. They give ladies such joy and happiness and finding the right pair can be the highlight of a shopping trip.
Darlene Flynn made it into the Guinness World Records for the world’s largest shoe collection, owning a whopping 16,400 items. Here at ABC Self Storage we know how a good pair of shoes can transform any outfit, but how would she know which pair to pick on a day to day basis?
It’s not only choosing which shoes to wear that would become a problem, but where would you keep them all? Imelda Marcos’ famous collection of 3,000 shoes was kept on shelves in the basement of the Malacanang Palace in Manila, however even a large part of her collection was destroyed by floods, termites and mould because they were not stored properly.
Unlike Imelda Marcos’s husband, most partner’s wardrobe space will slowly but shortly start reducing as more of their partner’s shoes start appearing. Ladies will insist they were a bargain, perfect for that outfit or a necessity, either way they will take more and more space in your wardrobe.
As most women tend to struggle to part with items (particularly shoes), it’s time to get tough and sorting shoes out into seasons and putting the ones you won’t be using for a while in Self Storage. Then when the seasons change – do a swap around, we all know fur lined boots and wellies won’t get used during the Spring/Summer and it can even be a lovely surprise when you find that beautiful pair of summer sandals you had forgotten about.
By using our flexible and affordable self storage units, ladies can carry on shopping and gentlemen can retain their own space. Everyone is happy! We have self storage units in Wandsworth, Camden and Southwark and promise we will keep all your shoes safe for the next season, or feel free to just nip in and choose a pair for that special moment if you rent one of our selected 24 hour units.
