Don’t throw out your old shoes – sell them to someone with a foot fetish instead
It’s Sunday evening and I’m creating a profile on one of the biggest social networks for BDSM, fetish and kink communities.

I’ve chosen an alluring username, and now I’m uploading photos of my shoes and filling out my profile to state that I am a mistress looking for a sissy sub to worship my feet.
In reality, I’m actually sitting in sweats, scoffing crisps, with my hair in a messy bun. But it’s always easier to get into character online.
I’m not looking for any real life fun on this website; though judging by what’s on my profile, you’d be forgiven for thinking that I enjoy dabbling and experimenting.
In actual fact, I’m starting (well, hoping to start) a new business – by selling old, worn shoes.
Let me explain.
Back when I was a uni student, I accidentally stumbled across the gold mine business that is selling old shoes to people with foot fetishes.
It was a complete accident.
I sold an old pair of shoes on eBay and made a profit – they were Primark pumps, so would have cost me around £3 to buy, and I managed to sell them for £30.
I didn’t understand why they went for so much.
They weren’t in the best condition, but they weren’t falling apart either, so I figured I’d get £5 max for them.
And then the messages came flooding in.
Men wanting to worship my feet; so called slaves begging me to sell more shoes (the stinkier the better, it seems) so that they could buy them and waste their money on ‘their mistress’.
Some even asked to pay for photos of my feet. ...
