If there’s one thing Paris Hilton is obsessed with — aside from her menagerie of furry pets and rock star boyfriend, of course — it’s fashion. Not content just wearing the latest look, the heiress has built up a mini-empire of numerous lines of clothing and accessories. PEOPLE caught up with the reality star at the Macy’s Vegas launch of her latest venture, Paris Hilton Footwear. “I love shoes and I think every girl loves shoes,” she explains of her choice to branch out into pumps and flats. “I already have clothing and purses and watches and other fashion accessories so I thought it would be perfect to dress head to toe in me!” Aside from being her very own muse, the jetsetter finds easy inspiration all around her. “Just from traveling all around the world and going to fashion shows and being in Saint Tropez and seeing different shoes everywhere, you feel inspired. So, when I go down and have my design meetings I know exactly what I want in a shoe.” Fortunately for her fans, Paris Hilton Footwear isn’t all style and no substance — the star also kept comfort in mind. “They have a little heart padding which no shoe has, so with the pads the bottom of your feet are really comfortable and you can dance all night long in them.” And you don’t need Paris’s trust funds to buy them — the shoes will retail for $59-$195. Tell us: Will you consider stepping into Paris’s shoes?

I hear she wears a size 11, I wonder if they will be available in that size???

that’s a weapon.LOL

Juanita on

Sure. Why not? I love shoes!

Patty on

The pair she’s holding is pretty cute and if they’re as comfortable as she says they are, I might have to try them out!

Gen on

Maybe, is that why she always wears closed toed shoes, beacause her feet are so big. Try opened toed with some of your outfits it would look better.

I keep waiting for the sweet, humbled, Paris that came out of prison to resurface. She said that she was praying and reading the Bible and had decided to open some sort of facility to help people (especially children I believe). What ever happened to all of those wonderful new inspirations? It seems that it doesn’t take long to get caught up in the empty Hollywood lifestyle once these young people return to many of their old ways. Come on Paris, you can do so much more with your life than offer the world more repetitive fashion. I still have faith in you!

I would totally wear her shoes. I heard that she has size 11 feet, I do too. I hope she makes them in that size!

Kate on

I don’t see why not. The price is reasonable and if the collection looks good I will definately consider it. Plus I love that she has the comfort factor in mind as well. Too many cute shoes are terribly uncomfortable and I doubt anyone looks hot if they are in pain!
