Woman Who Owns 1,200 Pairs of Shoes Will Launch a Shoe Collection

She has enough shoes in her private collection to fill a store, but Beth Shak is taking her love of heels to a new level with the announcement that she will launch a shoe collection.

According to the New York Post, Shak, who became famous after her now ex-husband sued her over her massive accumulation of shoes (he claims she failed to disclose the value of the shoes during the divorce), says it was her daughter who came up with the brilliant idea.

"My almost-18-year-old daughter wasn't happy having a mom that traveled and was gambling. She kept saying, 'Why don’t you design a shoe line?' and one day I was like, 'You know, she’s right.'" The line, unlike a large portion of her shoe collection (she boasts a bevy of designer shoes that she keeps in a password-protected closet, including more than 700 pairs of Christian Louboutins), will be a lower-priced assortment running from $160-$190.

My kind of woman, she’s a beautiful, adventurous, risk taker and a little dangerous. Her ex probably divorced her because he thought she was to high maintenance. What he probably missed was that she is a free spirit and not someone you keep tabs on let alone try to control. And she must be a good mother because not only is her daughter still in her life, it was her daughter who suggested for her to design her own shoe line. “Like mother, like daughter”.

If only I could meet a woman like her.
