Felicity owns 115 pairs of shoes, which kind of makes her the local ‘Imelda Marcos’ – according to the girl at the shoe store. Her husband of many years, Leon, is the typical Aussie husband and father, doting on his daughter Kate and spoiling his wife with new shoes to add to her collection... but Leon has a secret, a secret foot fetish.
