Darlene Flynn of Temecula, California, has the biggest shoe collection in the world she owns more than 11,000 shoe- related items.
This includes thousands of shoe trinkets like ornaments, furniture shaped like shoes, and about 300 pairs of wearable kicks.
She has no doubles of anything and her items hail from all over the world including the ultimate shoe haven, Italy.
Since the country itself is shaped like a boot, naturally, its Flynns favorite place for collectibles.
She also says England offers good shoe stuff, like high heel- shaped chocolates, and Montana is great for cowboy boots, like her boot-shaped toilet brush holder.
But nothing beats her $15.07 Shoe, made by her son out of $15.07 worth of coins.
Flynn loves shoes so much, she even sells them on darsshoehaven.com.
However, none are for sale from her personal collection, since shes still trying to grow it.
