Top 50 Eccentric Shoes

— May 19, 2008 — Fashion
Obviously, girls love shoes, but our interest doesn't stop at the ones we wear. We envy those of our friends, we're fascinated by the Manolos in stores and Choos in magazines, we ogle the pumps on celebrity toes, and we drool over the Louboutins being strut around in at parties.

Even if we don't get to make like Cinderella and slip our tootsies into our dream shoes, there's nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of eye candy.
