Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines has a collection of more than 3000 pairs of shoes, and Carrie Bradshaw, heroine of Sex and the City cannot keep ends meet because of her shoes collecting habit. The famous 20th century French philosopher Georges Bataille once gave the raspberry that artists’ love for Picasso’s works was like material admirers’ deep affection for a pair of beautiful shoes. Of course we understand that Bataille isn’t singing praises of shoes, he was just showing his disdain for Picasso. But it doesn’t matter; this French intellectual’s speech of belittling arts with shoes is already a nice comment for some.
