Toronto podiatrist Dr. Hartley Miltchin collects celebrity shoes. He estimates that his collection of about 350 pairs of shoes is worth $3 million.

And if you happen to be in Toronto sometime before Monday, September 6, you can view a portion of his collection on display in the History of Rock and Roll exhibit in the Direct Energy Centre at the Canadian National Exhibition. More info on Miltchin and his collection here.

Thanks to Paul Rapp for the tip.
