'I have over 200 pairs of high heels'

Snow or no snow, heeled crusader Leann Cuddihy from Greystones, Co Wicklow, regularly wears 6-inch heels to work. And the Debenhams deputy store manager has no shortage of pairs to choose from -- she owns over 200 pairs.

"My love affair with heels started when I was just five years old. I remember lying down on the floor of a shoe shop in Dublin and screaming until my mother bought me a pair of kitten heels I'd seen.

"Now in my thirties, not much has changed -- I always find a way to obtain that pair of heels that I simply can't live without. Although I have never caused quite a scene since! At last count, I have more than two hundred pairs.

"At 5ft 5in, I'm average height; but if you ask any of my friends, they probably think I'm at least 5ft 8in. You'll rarely catch in anything less than 4 inches -- and that's when I'm having a 'comfy' day.

"Although I have a long commute to work myself, I can never understand women how wear their trainers to work and then change at their desk -- as far as I'm concerned, that's cheating! I'm a hard-core heels girl.

"Whether at work or play, they make me feel powerful and confident. As for next year's 9 inch heels? Bring it on!"
