Women, a new survey exposes, don't remember the name of the guy they shared their first kiss with. The first pair of shoes that they bought with their own money are, however, much closer to a girls' hearts!
Be it a pair of Jimmy Choos or ones picked from a flea market, more than 92 per cent of women remember the time when they first bought shoes with their own money, the study found.
AdvertisementLess than two, however, in three recalled the name of the person they first kissed, reports The Telegraph. The study, which included more than 1,000 women, found that 96 per cent of women said they regretted having thrown away a pair of shoes, while only 15 per cent felt sorry for breaking up with a boyfriend.
Experts said the reasons behind women's fondness for footwear were down to their shoe buying habits.
Glendon Lloyd, director of website tszuji.co.uk, which commissioned the survey, said: "These results show that women are even more attached to their footwear than previously thought.
"People always think of women storing old love letters in a shoebox, but in many cases, the shoes themselves are even more precious.
"Women treat shoes like best friends. And it seems their footwear memories last longer than those of their past lovers. "
