Paris turns shoe
fetish into designing


Paris Hilton is mad about footwear, once telling Britain's Now magazine, "I'm passionate about shoes. I have so many pairs, it's ridiculous. In fact, I probably have over a thousand pairs and now my whole house is like one giant closet." Well, those many pairs of shoes must have been the inspiration for her new shoe line. "Paris Hilton Footwear is perfect for the fashion-forward young woman who wants to look and feet great from head to toe without spending a fortune," says the heiress-turned-shoe designer. She's apparently been hands-on with the line, making sure the packaging is environmentally conscious and that the shoes are as comfortable as they are chic, including a heart-shaped comfort pad and pink soles. The line is launching at Macy's and Kitson and comes in a non-socialite price range of just $59 to $195. That's hot!
