If you’ve ever felt the heartbreaking frustration of finding out a style you’d set your heart on is sold out, then Net-A-Porter might have the answer to your prayers. We are purely speculating when we say: perhaps a particularly demanding shoe loving customer or two has inspired them to set up their own ‘Shoe Subscription’ AKA the most wonderfullest Christmas gift a girl could ever receive. The idea is that you can speed to the top of the shoe waiting lists – for a mere £8k!

Oh yes, for £8 000 you’ll get a pair of shoes a month for the whole of 2011 but not only that – you’ll be able to pre-reserve styles from your favourite designers BEFORE the come out AND you’ll be in on sneak previews of the collections, AND if all that choice and the prospect of blowing the cash on the wrong pair concerns you, you’ll also have a hotline to a personal stylist to advise you on your purchases (something we could ALL use when internet shopping late at night, n’est-ce pas?)
So, whether it’s Charlotte Olympia, Camilla Skovgaard or kinky Christian Louboutin that get your footwear juices flowing, we suggest you start your hint/nag campaign on your loved ones today!
